Also, isn't it sad some people think they can include in their books comments about Christianity like Wexler's -- Oh, I wouldnt say anything, he (Wexler) said in a panic. Bob takes this shit seriously.
Hope this makes you feel better about what Jerry Wexler said--->>>>
It immediately reminded me of a quote attributed to Jerry Wexler co-producer of Slow Train Coming and Saved which is referred to in many places (try this Google search).
Scott Marshall refers to it in his book, Restless Pilgrim:
Full of zeal, Dylan tried to interest his other producer, Jerry Wexler, in the New Testament. Wexler responded, Im a sixty-two-year-old card-carrying Jewish atheist. According to Wexler, that was the end of the discussion.
(Jerry Wexler doesn't (didn't) take any religion seriously. He died a few years ago. I have had the honor of bumping into him at a video store)

The comment you quote by Wexler is harmless. I don't decry anyone's denying what I believe to be true. It's their prerogative.
I did mind the nasty way Wexler referenced Christianity in Schaffer's book. It just doesn't seem to be a two-way street.
