***Update***: I didn’t think I needed to say this, but I’m well aware that Landover is a parody site. I know Pastor Deacon Fred. I’ve interviewed him on this very site. I appreciate the comments and email that point this out, but rest assured I’m not duped *that* easily
Pastor Deacon Fred of Landover Baptist Church has this to say about Iron Man:
The first thing you have to understand about the movie, “Iron Man,” is that it is based on a super hero comic book series. For those of you who are not aware, super hero comic books are cartoon-style magazines read by effeminate young boys who don’t play sports…
Surprise, surprise… he hasn’t seen the movie:
I’ve never opened a comic book in my life, and to be honest with you – I’ve never seen the film, “Iron Man.” I don’t have to! Amen? Jesus, the Holy Spirit who dwells within me, and a few hours of TMZ work as a guide to figuring out what this movie is really all about on a spiritual level that unsaved people will never understand or appreciate.
The general idea of every super hero story is always the same, a mild mannered man gets super powers and tries to save the world without the blessing of Jesus Christ… We’ve basically got ourselves a mild-mannered-man who overdoses on Viagra. Iron Man is named for his enormously taught and giant tally whacker which is used to knock out villains with a quick gyration of his hips.
