Guaranteed Most Ridiculous Easter Sermon Idea This Year!

April 5, 2012

I thought last year that a church trying to hop on the back of the Charlie Sheen debacle to promote its Easter services was probably the worst Easter idea ever. Apparently I was wrong.

This year, Church on the Rock, has decided the whole dying for mankind and returning from the dead story needed to be spiced up a bit with the most logical of all associations, Batman.

Batman and Robin discover the true meaning of Easter set to some of the great music of our time… Wow. Holy ridiculousness Batman!

I can just see the ‘awesome’ dialogue in this travesty now

Robin: Why are they crucifying him, Batman?
Batman: Because he has to die.
Robin: But he didn’t do anything wrong.
Batman: He’s the hero humanity deserves, and  the one it needs right now. So they’ll crucify him. Because he can take it. Because he’s our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. Not a dark knight, but a bright light. Our saviour.
Robin: Holy redemption, Batman!

Church on the Rock is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. If any readers are in the area I expect first hand reports on all of the silliness and shenanigans!

    I think the Bible is actually more raw and edgy than pop culture, but I read it with my raw and edgy imagination.

    Not just Batman, but 1968-vintage Batman? The lowest point of the Dark Knight’s career, when The Batman became silly camp? Holy Something-or-Other! (And whatever that something-or-other is, I doubt you’ll find it at that church…)

    But then, this is a church trying to be Edgy and Relevant, so why am I not surprised?

      But 1960s camp Batman had Julie Newmar as Catwoman, right? That wasn’t a total loss.😉
