A jaded young lawyer starts a church on a lark, to exploit the growing trend of religious exemptions from common-sense laws. He stumbles into backing from a curmudgeonly billionaire and a powerful K Street law firm, leading to success beyond his wildest dreams.

His "Secret Plan," as he calls it, is to self-destruct by carrying the basic concept of religious privilege that he despises to (and well past) a logical extreme. But the self-destruction unfolds in a way he did not envision, as he is sucked steadily deeper into a quagmire of deceit.

Luis Granados, author of Damned Good Company, co-editor of A Jefferson Bible for the Twenty-first Century, and "Rules Are for Schmucks" columnist for takes us on a wild ride to a place let's hope we never reach. Footnotes, unusual for a novel, are included to let skeptical readers know how bizarre the world of religious legal privilege has already become.
