"Line Backer Evangalism"

Reading NEWSWEEK yesterday, I see this story about a new evangelical Internet site called GodTube.com which the NEWSWEEK piece described as the Christian answer to YouTube. The site is still in its beta phase yet gets between 50,000 to 60,000 unique users a day.

So I check it out. I mean, Benny and I are always looking for additional outlets that might be right for our material here at the MZone.

Poking around, I find a parody of the the Sir Mix-A-Lot song, "Baby Got Back" called "Baby Got Bible," another parody of the Mac vs. PC ads and a rant posted by someone called SoldierInGodsArmy called "Christians don't use circular logic!!!" (yes, with three exclamation points) showing some guy wearing all black - including a black ski mask - that makes it look like one of those all-too-familiar terrorist videos.

But What Would Jesus View? Well, if he's a sports fan...

Remember the Terry Tate: Office Linebacker commercials (which were actually based on a short film)? Check out "Line Backer Evangalism" below (which, based on the spelling of linebacker, was apparently made by Christian who isn't exactly a huge football fan. And based on the spelling of evangelism, not much of an evangelist either).

Unfortunately, the biggest sin of the clip is...it's not funny. The Lord should really look into hiring an editor as hell to me would be having to watch that video over and over again for all eternity.

I would rather be a Christian than a Christ Follower, because it is more important to shave and wear a suit than it is to be a five-o'clock shadowed, "hoodie" wearer who knows what day it is.

The problem is the people who put their faith in man instead of God... Ann Coulter, Tom Delay, Ted Haggard, James Dobson (two of my favorite neighbors here in Colorado Springs)... those clowns have nothing to do with faith. But their impact, things like "Jesus Camp" and "God Tube", are unfortunately far reaching.

BTW, I'd like to second Michael's "What????????"

Awesome clip. Sometimes I think this is what the world really needs in real life. lol

Man, I don't care what you guys say. "Baby got Bible" is ten times better than "Franklin Couneeeee."

Godtube is an absolute blast. I watched a documentary about Satanism that explained how the Knights Templar and those dirty Masons were the spreaders of satanism (never mind that the Knights Templar were dispatched by the Pope and fought for Jerusalem during the Crusades; never mind that George Washington and most of the founding fathers were Masons), went 'undercover' in a mosque to discover that Muslims hate gay people just as much as Christians, and watched the painfully unfunny Christ Line Backer, who will knock the shit out of you if you don't accept Jesus into your heart.

Are we SURE that this whole 'Godtube' thing is a good idea? The unintentional comedy factor is pretty high, but I get the feeling that's not the goal here.

I just hope Chabad doesn't get any ideas... As a Jew, I'm comfortable enough with just having Tony Danza!
