If Jesus Returned to Earth…

The Chaser’s War on Everything asks people on the street a series of questions about Jesus:

  • When do you think Jesus will return to Earth?
  • Who should get to speak to Jesus first?
  • How much would you pay to hear Jesus speak?
  • Would you vote for Jesus in the upcoming elections?

Note the shirt on the girl who says she would give Jesus all the money she has…

I’m also trying to get over how someone could not know the difference between a Democrat and a Republican. Oy.

    Wow, he asked those questions, and listened to the answers, with a straight face!

    Besides the Tshirt, my favorite part was when the one guy said, “Who?”

  • BZ

    Did he give them an option longer than 12 months?

    It seems to be a common thread, mostly among the religious, but other people too, that the world is somehow getting worse. I am not sure I agree.

    Also, I think $20 to see Jesus speak is enough. Otherwise, I will just wait for the video on YouTube.

    20 bucks to see Jesus? Yeah, I mean, who wants to pay more to see one of the trio from the omnipotent, omniscient ruler of the universe? I mean, I’m sure most people would pay more to see Paul McCartney perform… even now!

    OMG! How delusional can people get? :shock: Was that done in the Bible Thumping Belt? These guys were unbelievable, yet wackily (is that a word?) funny. Of course, my jaw dropped on some of the answers.

    Oh yeah, if the Shrub gets his way the “nuclear Jesus bomb” will land in the Middle East, but not before decending out of the clouds. Of course some of them sound like they would love to hit the button to make it drop out of the sky and onto the Middle East. :roll:

    Is there a difference between the Republicans and Democrats? I must have missed it.

    Yeah, while it’s not difficult to find stupid people, it is a bit misleading to only give them three very near-term options for when “Jesus” will return. The other problem with videos like this is we don’t know how many people he talked to who were like, “in a thousand years,” or, “that’s all a load of shit.”

    The fundys and particularly the End Times Christians are constantly thumping on the “world is going to hell in a handbasket” theme.

    If you think about it, they have to keep harping on that message. They depend on gaining membership by scaring people into their churches, and if they looked objectively at the world and saw that things have gotten a lot better over the past couple of centuries, they wouldn’t have any stick to use on people. If things are getting better, then people don’t need god so urgently.

    You can see the prevalence of the new bogeyman they’re using – radical Islam – in the immediate answers to that question. In my day, communism, the “new world order,” something called the “Trilateral Commission” and Y2K were the scare tactics of the time.

    Mriana, some of those interviews looked like they were taking place in New York City. It also looked like at least a few of the New Yorkers were answering tongue in cheek, particularly the couple who suggested Jesus ought to appear on Letterman.

    I knew those guys were joking, but the rest of them sounded nutty.

    That was … interesting. It really sickens me how outrageous most “Christians” are. The shirt was priceless, though. ;-)
