Fun with Lambuel!

Whoa.

This is my favorite part- where Lambuel is late for church (oh no!) and he must avoid temptations along the way:


It seems as though the temptations along the way include:

-lipstick (because Jesus HATES it when you put on mommy's makeup. It makes baby Jesus cry)
-a zero dollar bill (those don't look real good in the collection plate!)
-bed (either for sleep or . . . well, a temptation nonetheless)
-ice cream (which, as all good Christians know, only leads to eternal damnation.)

And here's another fun thing- click on the "Anti-Triclavianist" link in the left sidebar, and you will get "The Pastor's Corner," in which Pastor Andrew Miller offers a jaunty little "Rap" as an argument against the baptism of infants as "Wack." "Do not be put off by the unusual spelling;" he says, "it is part of the hip-hop vernacular."

Ah, that's what those young kids are listening to these days- ecclesiastical hip-hop.

And it just keeps getting better- a proposed change to the United States Flag:


Wow, apparently this particular denomination sees "subtlety" as a sin against nature.

As Diamond Jack Holgroth, the flag's designer says, though:
The design is non-denominational, and so won't offend the religious minorities who have yet to fully integrate into American Christian society.


Uh huh.

And lastly, Dr. Troy Franklin would like to reclaim Halloween . . . perhaps because it is the only time of year that he appears normal.

Wow. Either this is superb parody, or we have more to worry about than I thought. . .

  1. Is there a name for the feeling you get when you're not sure if you're seeing a parody or not? I was at a Catholic site once that spelled "vagina" as "v*****", as though it was actually a dirty word and not a medical term, but alas, it was an actual site....

  2. When does parody of a parody become a farce? Or does it? I couldn't tell for sure, but I think it's a farce.

  3. Hi! Love your blog! I hope you will consider contributing a post to Carnival of the Godless. It's a collection of blogs where we have fun laughing at the stupidity of the god-botherers. Hope to see you there!

  4. Anne! Now I have to hit you with a ruler and condemn you to recite Hail Marys as penance for using that dirty, dirty clinical word!!

    Ha ha. Looking back at the Lambuel site, I've determined it's definitely parody- check out the "kids art" page and the the merchandise section to be sure.

    And the whole floating baby Jesus head is pretty weird, too . . .

  5. Does the Great God Holgroth accept sacrifices of hyu-mahn infants in lieu of cash donations?
