What church did Hazel Motes found in Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood (1952)?

Hazel Motes founded the Church Without Christ in Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood, “where the blind don’t see and the lame don’t walk and what’s dead stays that way.”

A charlatan named Onnie Jay Holy started a rival sect, the Holy Church of Christ Without Christ.
