THE PROP COMIC PREACHER

I don't get what I'm doing wrong. I'm literally covered in covenant blood and I feel nothing...

That slithering demon tongue made me pitch my own tent. to bad i'm "walking in the blood of the covenant" this time of the month.

I sense a tinge of racism here

Grrg said...

I didn't think evangelical preachers were allowed to do that much cocaine, y'know, publicly. (I know different rules apply in motel rooms on the edge of town.)

Renee of the Fae said...

I have nothing clever to say here. Just, "Wow."

The guy is like a white, closet gay version of Bob Saget.

I swear, either the audience is watching something we can't see, or they pump laughing gas into the theater.

I hate it when my TV gets possed by demons and forces me to watch homosexual sitcoms

also what the fuck is with Christians pronouncing the word "robot" as "rowbutt"? Jack van Impe does it too

I always wondered what Wilson from House would look like completely blasted out of his fucking skull.

Hey, Christian Humour Fans: See Robert Sean Leonard stoned out of his mind! All cocaine, all giant shoulder-pads, ALL THE TIME!

Victor Serge said...

Nick, so true. "I cahn't work today boss" cuts close to minstrel humour.

The guy reminded me of Christopher Morris from The Day Today. Except he's not doing satire.

I... I don't get it.

A tent!? ON STAGE?!? This guy slays me, very similarly to what will happen on the day of the Lord when I finally get to use my Slaughtering Weapons and mark everyone up.

".....Hmmmm.
Mezzanine seating BEHIND the stage you say......"

I've realized, That was a deal-breaker for some folks.

I don't get it.

Okay, I think I know what's going on with that tend and the foliage decorating the stage. I *think* he's trying to evoke Isaiah/John the Baptist in a sort of voice-in-the-wilderness-crying-make-straight-the-way-for-the-Lord way. But if he's going to do that, he really should just go whole hog. Dress in skins and furs, ignore personal hygine, and eat nothing but locusts and honey (and honey coated locusts for special occasions) like John the Baptist. That guy was hard core.

James said...

Oh, and the slaughtering weapons thing. That's from Ezekiel 9:

"Then (God) cried in my ears with a loud voice saying, "Draw near, you executioners of the city [angels assigned to the task of punishing the wicked], each with his destroying weapon in his hand ... Go through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it... slay old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but touch no one upon whom is the mark."

In context, this passage is about God's displeasure with the Jews in Judah and their breaking of the covenant. Traditionally it is seen as a prophecy of the capture and sack of Jerusalem by the Neo-Babylonian empire and the expulsion of the Judahites (the Israelites had already been relocated).

Of course, I don't know many evangelicals who keep things in context and bother to interpret them meaningfully, so who knows what this guy's up to/

Sam Kinison probably wouldve ripped this guy several new assholes. RIP Sam.

Ravenhallow said...

Thanks for some context, James! Even if I do indeed suspect this creeper is not interested in such.
To quote Spider Jerusalem, this preacher "has a really punchable face."

Fat 'n Boring said...

@Grrg: What do you think he was blowing off his Bible at the beginning of the clip?

Yeah..... because this is exactly how Bob Saget would be if he was, uh, white, and seemed like he might, um, possibly be gay. Whereas the real Bob Saget is clearly a totally butch Black Panther type.

I wish this was fake... I'm sorry.

Joelster said...

About the comment at the top: the "tinge of racism" I think you are totally off-base.

I looked into what Rod Parsley is up to these days and he can't be a racists; He has a hugely successful church, and out of his generosity he started a whole separate church just for the Hispanic community called "Latin Harvest Church," and one for the "inner-city" community called "Metro Harvest Church."

How can he be racist if he gave these people groups their own places to have church, separate from his church?

Ryan said...

Fuck Rod Parsley. I am so sick of the extroverted, over-the-top, theatrical-to-a-fault, hyphenated-text-inducing, "charismatic" ministers. I hope this man gets exactly what he's got coming to him.

Anonymous said...

Out of his "generosity" ? They had to close that school because of lack of students and getting in trouble WHBC VALOR sports for cheating. They made it "Latin Harvest" to appease Parsleys Pride. He likes his sheep dumb. His closest employees don't even know him.
