And carols lead me to folk music which lead me to Percy Grainger, which lead me to this, from his autobiography:
Altho she insisted she liked the personality of Christ, as a man, & altho she sometimes... said she had religious feelings, [Mother] was unwavering in her dislike of any portion of the Bible..."Be a good fellow & don't read to me from that awful depressing book." She was truly fond of Mrs McGee, & at times maybe somewhat influenced by Mrs McGee's Catholicism..."If I had to join any church, I think it would be easiest for me to join the Catholic church. I like the way Mrs. McGee is willing to sit in church beside any dirty old man.
Here comes everybody indeed!
