I did years ago, but didn't pay a lot of attention. Well, recently I've been checking out a lot of YouTubes featuring him. I don't agree with everything he says, but I agree with a lot. I like his solid, loving, earthy Christianity. This is a man who is both compassionate and no-nonsense. Actually, he even reminds me a little of Don Rickles. Check out this Youtube of him talking about consumer culture. Though he doesn't mention the Occupy movement here, I think what he says here is eminently relevant to it. You may think it odd that a self-described pornographer and cultural bolshevik such as myself would admire an Evangelical and self-described "conservative," but there are a lot of strange overlappings in the world that people miss.

And this is one reason why I have grown to hate that climate one sees on the net that pits religious people against secular ones and sees one party as all good and the other as all evil (or idiotic). But that's another story.
