WARNING: Before anyone gets offended, what follows is meant to be a lighthearted post, so don't get "cross" with me if you miss the "gospel" of this holier than thou piece.
Over the past few years, in the political world, the Christian Fundamentalist movement has been using the Bible and the names of God and Christ as excuses for everything from withholding aid to the poor and restricting female reproductive rights to combating evolution and replacing it with creationism. These outlier thinkers care not for scientific facts - to the contrary. So this begs the question, are the extreme evangelicals out of touch with reality? Just last week the Atlanta Daily World reported that Dr. Reginald Wayne Miller, Cathedral Bible College president, was arrested by the FBI for turning his students into slaves. He justified his actions as being based on the teachings and words of the bible. It wasn't the devil made him do it, it was Jesus. Holy smokes! (hey, can I say that?)
Maybe it's time to take and examine what might happen if our calls for divine help were actually answered.
Innovative, clever and sometimes off-the-charts short-film maker, Travis Richey, takes a humorous look at the outrageous with his Youtube short called Jesus Takes The Wheel. Maybe some of the Right-wing evangelicals would find a moment of sanity in this otherwise insane look at a very common practice. But certainly everyone can find fun in this juicy bit of lunacy. You'll peak your enjoyment with a bag of popcorn, a box of jujubes, or your favorite strand of rosary beads.
