Oh, this is great.
This is funny…no doubt about it. I can laugh out loud…which I did…and than go about my life. I guess what concerns me is this: It would not surprise me how many people actually take this as a direct offense to christians…and how vehemently they protested it. I think I will google this and see what I can find…I guarantee there was a mini uprising over it. Family Guy is a classic…and they knew exactly what they were doing…which is great. Than again…I may be surprised…maybe there was not much reaction at all. I mean, the believing brain can be very oblivious.
Family Guy does stuff like this all the time. I think believers probably stopped watching it a long time ago.
You’d be surprised at how many people are deeply religious and yet list Family Guy or House as favorite TV shows on Facebook.
Excellent point. I worked with a guy at my last job who’s a part-time evangelical preacher, yet had posted on his Facebook profile that “Family Guy” was one of his favorite shows, and even uploaded a picture from Christmas showing him opening a “Family Guy” DVD set. Weird.
I had to wait a minute for the video to buffer to enjoy 12 seconds of video.
Youtube sucks big hairy monkey balls at times.
Yeah, this is funny. And so is the “Go God, Go” episode of South Park with the atheist organizations at war over the great question of what atheists should call themselves. No matter how rational and peaceful we claim to be, and want to be, we’re still fucked up human beings.
