How Many Christians Mimes Are There?!

We just saw some Christian mimes a couple weeks ago.

Now, you’re telling me there are more?!

Well… she’s no Susan Boyle

At least this clip comes with an ironic/hilarious twist :) And when Simon Cowell gives you the option of just walking off stage instead of listening to him insult you, that’s pretty bad…

    How Many Christian Mimes Are There?!

    Hard to say. They’re keeping quiet on the issue.

    They’re a lot more common than you might think. I remember a middle school convocation years ago where we had a mime show up and do his bit. It all seemed on the up and up until the very end where they announced he would be performing at a local fundamentalist Pentecostal church for the rest of the week.

    I had a friend who went to that church (his family has long since escaped) and they invited me to go to one of those shows, which turned out to be two hours of hardcore proselytizing. Of course this was in a small town in the middle of the Bible belt where you were either assumed to be Christian or pretended to be to keep up appearances – and that wasn’t wven the worst example of preaching sneaking into a secular mandatory convocation – but I don’t doubt these acts are being used as stealthy conversion tools even today.

    Off topic, but Fox News has a SURREAL column up about how the new Star Trek film is a message from God about how we need to help Israel develop photon torpedo technology. I swear, I am NOT making that up:

    Yes your god wanted you to look foolish in front of the world….for some greater good. That must be it.

    Ooh, that’s cringeworthy and totally embarrassing. I don’t like to see people being made fools of, and it looks like she was set up for a fall, but who knows really. Either way, watching it didn’t make me feel good at all, regardless of the religious nature of the performer or not. I’d have thought the broadcaster would have had the sense not to air it.

    This new trend of christian miming is truly disturbing.

    I think mime can be put to good use. Imagine this: You’re a student in one of those states where they mandate a minute of silent “contemplation” each day. You put on a white-face mask and spend your minute “contemplating” that old mime routine of being trapped in an invisible box…

    What a wonderful way of protesting government-imposed compulsory silence/prayer!

    I couldn’t watch the whole thing. It was way too obvious what was going to happen. On the other hand I think it would be great if all chrisians prostylized only in mime.

    @dfledermaus
    Some might say pretending to be trapped in an invisible box IS christian mime…LOL

    An atheist with a rock can be a real life saver!

    That’s what we in England call “care in the community” but some mentally ill people need more help than that.

    This could backfire on them. I have never liked mimes. Once I attended a minor league baseball game on “mime night.” I found out that many many other people also do not like mimes.

    I found out that many many other people also do not like mimes.

    I like this version of an old Zen question:

    “If a tree falls on a mime in the forest, does anybody care?”

    @B,

    This new trend of christian miming is truly disturbing.

    If Xian miming is in the “truly disturbing” category, then the following items should undoubtedly be filed in the section labeled “signs of the Apocalypse” …

    What I find odd about Christians, is that they let God take the credit and the blame for anything given result. If things go right, they thank God, but if things go wrong, God must have a plan. (But he rarely seems to let any one in on his plan)

    I am a christian mime but i sm on a team..its better that wy. Her version of “christian miming” was wrong and bad. When our team mimes we do stunts…for say lifting Jesus. And crucifying him showing his resurection ect..don’t go puttng it down because you don’t believe in it…it can touch many people
