    I’m convinced that YouTube might be the worst thing to have ever happened to humanity. Ugh…

      Might want to take a look around the world before making such a hyperbolic and untrue statement… Ugh.

    Hyperbole is fun. You know what’s not fun? Shitty crayon drawings and bad voice acting. This is as hard to watch as those pentecostal twin dancing girls.

      I think you’re really missing the point of NSC… it’s like saying a song is no good because the video sucks.

    The point? What, is the point of this exactly? Do tell…

    Isn’t this cartoon just as guilty of placing a modern value system and interpretation on an ancient text as some of the religious groups and people you’re railing against? Yet again, it just sounds like someone putting themselves in the place of God and examining the situation from that ridiculous perspective. An out of context narrative done from the point of omniscience? Doing so makes the religious man look like a rambling fool and the non believer look like a pretentious ass. Neither of them have anything to say that I have an interest in. *gong*

    And video’s ruin songs all the time just like they make them better. Stone Temple Pilots are an amazing band that I got sick of after watching Weiland writhe around shirtless in every video and stopped buying their albums. Foo Fighters are a decent/mediocre band that make the best and funniest videos out there and have kept me interested for the duration of their career. Visuals matter and Production value counts (1Scott 6:29). If you want to make a grand theological statement, don’t use crayons. You’ve got to at least make a thinly veiled attempt to hold both the religious and non religious sides to the same standards here man. You can’t rip on “Mimes For Jesus” and let this crap off the hook.

    “Isn’t this cartoon just as guilty of placing a modern value system and interpretation on an ancient text as some of the religious groups and people you’re railing against?”

    Jake what are you looking for with your hyperbolic rhetoric? Do you really want to have a conversation like this with me caricatured by the sort of rhetoric you are employing? Do you really understand all the issues at hand? Does making you an expert in a field other than biblical studies or theology make you and expert in biblical studies or theology. You don’t like it; I get it. But you also don’t get what it is. Watch the video with less pissed off glasses, because the references are there, and you have to make sense of the material. I believe that the material is referencing the theological assertion that God is love, which is modern, and then playing off of that.

    Getting mad or loud lends no veracity to your point whatsoever. Enter into the ancient mindset, and tell us what it really means with exasperation!
