Seems like it would be harder to meet these demands if, you know, you are not a puppet. Which raises the question: How do good Christians get food? Is there a huge trend of 'shoplifting in the name of the lord' that I'm not aware of?

Also, HOW DID THEY GET THEIR PUPPETS AND VIDEO CAMERAS?? Or is this just what the church does once you give them all of your money: use it to make shitty puppet shows in the basement to the effect of 'Send moar moneys.'

The puppets look like muppets with down syndrome.

What's wrong with these people? Why would you want to depict God as a spiteful mob boss? What does God need money for anyway?

So the lesson learned at the beginning of the film is: It's acceptable to rob your friends in the name of the Lord.

My guess is that God needs a starship...

FITZSIMMONS said...

I could barely understand half of what they were talking about, horrible writing. I DID understand the plot but this is was terrible, so terrible I did not laugh

@The Eagle's Tears
Thank you for the beer spittake I just made.

@Destination A Go-Go, Lord of the Jerrys

I have seen the error of my ways! I repent! Merciful Maguire, deliver me!

So... God uses black people as his hitmen? That's what I took away from this.

Isn't that the kind of thing a cult leader would say/do?

Wait a second...

OH MY GOD THE NIGHTMARES THE MEMORIES PLEASE DO NOT PERSIST IN YOUR PRESENT LINE OF ACTION

so the moral of the story was to give all your extra money to the church? what a horrible message to send.

also, that puppet work was f**king horrible. A epileptic kid with down syndrome could work those puppets better than that.

Hey man, you best give God yo' money or he'll cut you up real good.

Just reminds me of the loveable David Liebe Hart.

No, the moral is, "Give ALL your money to the church, because it's less of a church and more of a quasi-legal commune, where all wealth is pooled and distribution is handled by the apostles, based not on who earned the money but on who needs it most".

Seriously, it's right there in the Bible, Acts 4:32-5:10.

I'm not sure I understand the route from there to the modern Christian ritual of stealing pocket change from vent figures, but then theology was never my strong point.

I'm glad I'm not a Biblical entertainer, because literally every single story (Except Jonah, maybe) in the Bible is too violent, boring, irrelevant or complicated to really suit the dynamic world of sock puppetry.
