This amusing parody of a George Bush ad is floating around the net. Click on the thumbnail below to link to the original Mad Magazine art. Quite amusing.

    Personally, I don’t think this one is sacreligious as much as just plain bad theology. Every single quote is severly misinterpreted and/or used out of context. But, as this is satire, I do think it is pretty funny.

    BTW, for some satire making fun of Liberals, probably the best site on the web is ScrappleFace.com. They got some good ones at the top of their page today.

  2. Ed Campbell says:

    Best discussion I ever had about that dangerous Essene revolutionary was in a jail cell in Chicago in the days of Daley. I was in there with the 2nd-funniest Catholic priest I ever met.

    I remember him telling me he picked out the fedora he wore to demonstrations because he figured it made him look like Bing Crosby — and “what cop would ever club Bing Crosby?”

    I don’t think El Cristo was much for voting, though. More like direct action.

  3. Mike says:

    Seems like a point the parody is making is that many of the ads or arguments by the Right are based on misrepresented or misinterpreted or out-of-context facts.

  4. John C. Dvorak says:

    I agree with Mike. As a parody it should take things out of context and warp them. This is not ABOUT theology. It’s about satire. It’s a shame that the country is losing its overall sense of humor.

  5. Thomas says:

    “sacreligious”…wow…I’m waiting for someone to say it’s out and out blasphemous and that we’ll all go to hell. Ah well, humor is lost on those that take themselves too seriously.

  6. Every sermon I’ve ever heard takes things out of context – who wants to sit through an entire reading of a bokk of the Bible? Wait, I take that back – it would be an improvement on a LOT of the the sermons based on pieces of the Bible

  7. Tom Jenkins says:

    Jesus really did say those things and I have read them in context. JWB is not a good christian because he is wealthy, seeks revenge, and he displays his religiousness for all to see. These things are quite clear in the bible. If you have not read it for its historic value, perhaps you should. You would see the huge disparity in this land of those who claim to be a christian and those who really follow the teachings of Christ. JWB using Christ’s name to get votes is sacrilege.

  9. Hi, every sermon I’ve ever heard takes things out of context – who wants to sit through an entire reading of a bokk of the Bible? Wait, I take that back – it would be an improvement on a lot of the the sermons based on pieces of the Bible
