Shh! Conversion story of SF author John C. Wright mentions Man from Mars but not Jesus Christ

As a lifelong Roman Catholic who frequently sins by coveting my neighbor's wife and worshipping the money changers on Wall Street, I found a lot of humor in science fiction and fantasy author John C. Wright’s written account of his recent conversion to Roman Catholicism from atheism. The funniest thing is that Mr. Wright’s conversion account mentions the Man from Mars, Tolkein, Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, St. Thomas Aquinas, Nietzsche, Sartre, Caesar, Scrooge, Bishop Berkeley and Mr. Johnson, but doesn’t mention Jesus Christ.

Letter from Paul to Mr. Wright: If Pope Benedict XVI finds out, he'll excommunicate you from the Church!
