The Christians are Pissed at Jack Black

Please excuse me-this is going to be difficult for me to post without erupting in an explosion of f-bombs and going on a rampant rapage about the evils of hypocrisy. Anyway, here we go. Some Christians with nothing bettter to do have their prarie skirts in a knot over the recent pro-Prop 8 in which Jack Black dressed as Jesus while spreading a message of love and understanding. The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission was outraged and wants an apology from actor Jack Black and the other participants in Prop 8. Here's there banter and bullshit:
"In a short video posted on entitled, "Prop 8 The Musical," an all star cast of Hollywood celebrities perform a low budget musical farce that defames Christ, mocks Christians and distorts the teaching of the Bible.
"Jack Black should remember from his days at Hebrew School that homosexual acts aren't funny and are roundly condemned in the Bible," said Dr. Gary Cass, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "Appearing as a sarcastic, rotund Christ, Black distorts the Bible and condones shameful, homosexual acts. Associating Christ with perverse activity is an affront to all people of faith, especially Christians. Apparently Black and company find it hilarious to falsely accuse Christians while they intentionally distort the Bible. Black ought to apologize."
First of all, what is up with getting pissed about a fat Jesus? Jesus couldn't varry a little bloat in his boat? Thou shalt talk smack Christians! Second of all, I find it awfully ironic that they want someone to appologize for playing Jesus as someone who doesn't judge others and who loves everyone. And finally, as someone who went to Christian school throughout almost thge entirety of their education, I can say that that Prop 8 video was completely accurate. Most Christians majorly condemn gay lovin' because they claim it's condemned in the Bible, yet they don't mind ignoring the other crazy crap about your wife living in a seperate house during her period because she's "unclean" or selling your daughter for a goat. It enrages me so greatly that these people hate in the name of their God and call it ok. Jesus spread a message of love and tolerance. And let us not forget Matthew 7 which blantantly states "Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me remove that splinter from your eye,' while the wooden beam is in your eye? You hypocrite, 3 remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother's eye."
But you know, that's one of the parts I guess it's ok to ignore.
