Terminator and Jesus

Speaking of Terminator Jesus, you should watch this clip on the Terminator and Jesus. The Last Supper scene is ha-larious.

Wouldn't you know it is from FOX TV.

This is sad. To ridicule one's beliefs, no matter be they Christian, Hindu, Jew or non-believer is unacceptable. To pass it on is worse.

As a pastor, I took it as satire, the follow-up of the earlier post. If we cannot stand firm in our beliefs even in the midst of such silliness then we are focused in the wrong direction.

Yes, it is uncomfortable to see Jesus the foil for a bad imitation of the Terminator, but to my eye the portrayal of Jesus, stayed true to character of Jesus' calling. The terminator character seemed to be protecting Jesus, in a Peter-like misstep portrayed in Matthew 16:22-23.

Anonymous, this is just my view, not a rebuke. As you point out "Wouldn't you know it is from FOX TV."

I don't see anything in the video that ridicules Christian belief. Even if I did, I would still have no problem with it. Of course we ridicule peoples beliefs, what else are we going to ridicule, how they look. If someone believes, for instance, that Sarah Palin is a brilliant foreign policy analyst because her state is close to Russia, I will make fun of that person. If someone believes that the 9-11 attacks were a giant conspiracy by the Bush administration, I will make fun of that person. Why is it that religion claims such a complete immunity to criticism or ridicule in our society? Talk about someone's politics, actions, personal foibles, etc. and you're okay. But religion is considered off limits. Just a pet peeve of mine.
