Actually he's talking about the sins of Hollywood excess, and also sippy cup.

#1 & #2 sound exactly like every other Evangelical preacher I've ever heard.


#3 sounds exactly like every Evangelical parishioner.

Do Evangelical parishioners grab the bottom of their suit jacket the same way and have the same bored look on their face when reading cue cards?

I like how there are quotation marks around "Loves You". Does God love me? Well, he "Loves you."

You know, in the same way that he loves a really well-made burrito.

I don't get too many burritos in here. Except a lot of 'em when I buy 'em and bring 'em here.

Substantially less when you don't, though?

You never cease to amaze, man. I don't know how you find this stuff.
What disturbs me most is pondering how they trained that poor 4 year old. Teach this smart kid to read so quickly and so well just to turn him into a little robot....

What scares me is the goofy idea of "The wisdom of children" grafted onto dogmatic religious submission. I've always had problems with the attitudes that children are wise, because children want ice cream for dinner and Thomas the Train to be their new daddy. But if people believe the spirit of Jesus or whatever religious figure is speaking through a babbling two-year-old that's learned to mimic what an authority figure does at the church he attends one or two or seven days a week, that is crazy writ large.

To me, it's not comparable to Nazi Germany, because I can make fun of this and still do so tomorrow with relatively little fear of institutional reprisal. There is of course the possibility that a future employer sees this post and is offended, a price to pay in the age of information, but I could have just locked the post in the first place. If the economy does get extremely sour in this country, then I do worry about how the extreme religious elements—already champing at the bit to kickstart the rapture—will amp up the propaganda and potentially get violent (which isn't to say it's the only sector of society I worry about... I get panicky thinking about elements from all sides of the political spectrum). Germany in the thirties had an effective propaganda machine, but they had no idea how to harness the power of toddlers and puppies.
