Set phasers on Jesus-stun!

I’ve had this particular tidbit up my sleeve for a while. Figured it’s time to play this particular card now, while I have a shit-ton of work to do and only one day left to do it in, before I can go on my vacation properly. Yes, I have a crazy work ethic, and feel as though I have to honor promises I made weeks ago despite vacation I booked months ago.

And this video is particularly priceless. Enjoy the train wreck of stupidity, bad acting, proselytizing, and Klingons on bass, that is Star Tracts. Honestly, after Christoga, are you really surprised at fundies’ ridiculous tendency toward renaming everything so as to have a passing resemblance to some aspect of Christianity?

Hat tip to the ineffable archive of failure that is Everything is Terrible.

(No, but seriously, humanity is so doomed.)

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. I have that damn “Joy, joy, joy” song stuck in my head as well.

    What’s with the fixation on the Klingons’ penises and their foreskin? I would say it’s weird but the video encompasses infinite weirdness.

    I could be mistaken, but I do believe that was a skit from Fire By Nite. I remember watching those at youth group in the early nineties. I might have even seen that episode, but that was a long time ago, and I only really remember the episode that focused on Satanism and Sean Sellers. However, it does highlight the Christian (especially evangelical) love of appropriating pop culture for Jesus. Our youth group actually had a fairly good rock band, and they loved playing free concerts where they’d play songs like “Smells Like Holy Spirit” and… Well, I know there were other popular rock songs back in the day that they’d rip off and add Christian lyrics to, but I just can’t recall them. I think it’s my brain trying to save me from personal torture.

    Yeah, I just went and looked it up, and that blonde guy is definitely Blaine Bartel from Fire By Nite. Christ, I’m glad I grew out of that religious phase…

    Now I know his name, and can’t continue calling him Space Jesus. I know, he wasn’t actually playing Jesus, but he seemed like the milquetoast goodie-two-shoes type.

    By the by, does anyone know what the hell a philistone is?
