Holy Satire?

The folks at Vintage21 created a series of hysterical videos using the Mystery Science Theater 3000 technique (originally created by Woody Allen with What's Up, Tiger Lily?) of taking old films and dubbing in new dialogue.

Now, don't take these at face value. They may initially appear irreverant and even sacriligious, but were created to, albeit comedically, point out the ridiculous ways in which many of us stereotype Jesus - as the cosmic goody-two-shoes or the Christian fairy godmother, etc.

In any case, they are just too funny!

Thanks to Greg for the link.
