The irony in "Salvation" comes at the end when Hughes realizes that not being "saved" by Jesus, which was supposed to make him believe, causes him to lose any belief he had before. Anoth small piece of irony is when his aunt thinks that he is crying because of the "Holy Ghost", but is really crying because he lied and decieved everyone in the church.
