Controversial comedy 'Faith Based' pokes fun at Christian films -- to a point

From the article:

It has all the ingredients of a faith-based blockbuster: an astronaut who finds God after she’s pushed to her limits.
And space monsters.
But you won’t find “A Prayer in Space” in theaters soon.
The fictional Christian film plays a central role in “Faith Based,” a new satirical film about the Christian film industry that premiered this past weekend at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

My favorite film in this genre is, of course, "Life of Brian".

1. I'm glad that they don't do films making fun of atheists

I’d not like that one bit.

2. Welcome to DU.

For the record, I am a theist.

But your accurate and ironic point is noted.

3. Lets see how that would work......

Atheist goes around making fun of Jesus peeps. Choose Lenny Bruce or Book or Mormon or George Carlin as a basis for the humor. (Book of Mormon is too easy. Works better with Bruce.)

Then he gets a splinter in his foot. A lion comes out of the jungle and chews the splinter out of his foot (along with a couple of inches of foot. The lion was hungry. )

Atheist gets pissed at the lion.

A scorpion comes along and mocks the atheist, saying, you knew what lions were about but you accepted the lion's help despite your knowledge. Its the same with Jesus. You were told who the True God was but you ignored Him.

Fade the scorpion, sound track with ominous sounds builds to crescendo. This is followed by booming voice of James Earl Jones, "You choose mockery over truth. Now your sorry ass belongs to the underworld."

End of film summary tells that there is hope for you and other infidels if you would send money to Franklin Graham so's he can pray for the manifestation of God's will through the reelection of God's Tool, Donald J. (J is for genius) Trump.

End music: Proud to be an American or Ballad of the Green Beret by Barry Sadler.

5. An interesting scenario.

Is there a way to work in zombies, dinosaurs, and a killer robot?

4. "I am a theist."

"I... am a deist at this point."

What changed your mind back to theism, g? Did you realize you were using the term "deist" incorrectly?

7. You must not have watched many Christian films

if you think "they don't do films making fun of atheists".
