His mom, very tired of living like a member of Kentucky organized crime moved with her son to southern Illinois.  They were both Kentucky and Lutherans. It blew my mind as I figured all of Kentucky for Baptists.

Squeezins! Now ain't that a blast from the past!

Kentucky has a substantial Catholic population around the Louisville/Bardstown area.  Many Catholics migrated there from Maryland in the late 18th century.

I hope there's nothing too freaky-deaky in there...  I love Elvis. The young Elvis just had it. He was something else (and the Jordanaires were too kewl!). He was, from everything I've heard, a very sweet, kind, and generous man. I pray he's in Heaven, or at least in Purgatory, being purified.

Cool new avatar, Vox. I remember reading the book Black Elk Speaks and really enjoying it, but I hadn't realized he was Catholic until today.

As a non "trufan", thanks for the original post.  I had no idea.

I remember seeing a clip where a reporter asked Elvis what he thought about being the "King." Elvis said, "there is only one king that I recognize and that is Jesus." May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. amen.

I'm not a trufan either.  My mom is, though, so I know a fair amount of Elvis trivia.

Liked his early stuff a lot, I was a kid, and he hit that note for me. Later on I didn't much care. But this is a revelation, and I like it.  It makes me wonder how a guy objectively in serious trouble could also be like what this is saying about him. I remember this adage concerning a priest and a sinner.  A priest spends his life looking for Christ and never sees Him in this world, where the sinner sees Him always as Christ is seeking him.

I can't find the website now!  I'm really frustrated.  I think it was on angelfire, and it had tons of information about aliens being demons.  Maybe someone here would remember the site.
