Cartoons Christian Kids Weren’t Allowed To Watch is well worth your two and a half minutes. Comedian John Crist tells true tales of kids and the cartoons they couldn’t watch because Jesus didn’t approve.
Take a gander.
I should mention John is a believer. (I know, I found it disappointing.) Here’s a bit from his bio:
I was lucky. My religious parent were negligent and lazy. They didn’t mind me watching hours of cartoons when I was growing up.
Whether its Church Hunters, Celebrity Pastor Fantasy Draft or his most recent work, Virtual Reality Church, Crist’s humor sometimes focuses on the nuance of the local church. Of the church, Crist says, “Man, I love the local church. Growing up serving at my dad’s church, I know the effect that a healthy, vibrant local church can have on the community. If I ever come across as critical, it’s because I love the church and I wish for so much more from it. I think the local church is our only hope for change in America, that said… we do some weird stuff :)”

Yeah, there’s a bit of vomit in my mouth, too.
