This segment of the series deals with Catholocism.
Just a warning, there is content in here that some people may find to be a bit offensive to their beliefs.
Anyway, sit back, and enjoy!
I've only seen part 2 so far, so it doesn't comment on the majority of these.
It was funny but, could be funnier. I'm catholic, and the video is pretty fucking spot on.
"It's a shame nobody makes videos exploiting atheism. " as someone commented.
It's because atheism isn't a religious church you moron. It's specifically someone who doesn't believe in God. There's nothing to be exploited.
It's like saying this homeless man believes in a magical unicorn with 6 dicks and prays in him, and one who doesn't. And then the one who believes in that unicorn says, "It's a shame that that nobody makes videos exploiting the homeless guy there that doesn't believe in my 6 dicked unicorn." Now I know this type of argument has been done, but in that argument I'm not comparing God to a unicorn with 6 penises.
The problem isn't so much with religious people all together. It's just the majority of them. And when I say majority, take it to mean the majority of ALL people are completely idiots. So most likely the majority of any group of people are going to be morons as well. Unless you pick a group that is composed strictly of people that have a given decent intelligence. Say a select group of the world's top scientists. Now no one in that group is probably a complete moron, and would I expect to find a muslim, christian, atheist, buddhist, agnostic, satanist, etc. Yes I would. I'd expect to find at least one of all of those.
Now if you got offended over this video, it's because you're probably one of two things.
A) You're one of the christians that feels atheism is some world wide cult out to get you, or on a smaller level you just feel like atheists are constantly taking shots at your religion.
Guess what happens when someone makes a catholic joke to me? I laugh. My brother on the other hand gets pissy as hell like you people. My brother is also not nearly as intelligent as me. Not just because I say so either, words from his mouth. -- Now you have to understand you belong to a group that has a vast, vast number of people. And in any vast group of people, is going to have a vast, vast group of morons. And they're going to give your religion a bad name. Look at groups like liberals as well though, the same thing goes for them. They're not any different. Some might subscribe to whatever their group currently says is ok, and anything else is wrong. Which is the same thing any moron does, just like reigious people. And not all liberals are atheist as people would believe it.
People have to understand, anytime you identify with a group of people. The majority of it are probably going to be assholes. You can have decent good people, but they're going two flaws that instantly makes them a complete asshole to someone. Which isn't wrong of the other person, because that's an important flaw to them. If it causes that person with the flaw to abuse the other person in some manner.
You may want to say, but hey guy! Now ALL of us are bad.(Whatever group you're part of). No, not ALL of any group is probably 100% full of bad people. The point is, the majority of them probably are bad people. And should we say about a school class, it was a terrible classroom of murderous misfits with 1 good kid. Or should we say it was the best class ever. You identify a group with what the majority of it is like. That's the reason you shouldn't be offended in the first place, if you're not one of the bad majority of something. You shouldn't be offended at all, because you're not what a video is talking about. And if you don't like what your group is seen as, work to fix the rest of them. Or STOP identifying yourself as being in the group.
B) Or you're one of the people depicted in this video.
In which case fuck you, you deserve it you moron.
Wow. That's a pretty epic argument there. I'm not going to bother to comment on the sociological segments of this, but I will say thanks for the defense.
What I will say however is that I'm happy you found it funny.
that was funny because it kind of brought up a point ive always tried to make. if jesus did come back, he would totally be sickened by the holy symbols, he was put up on a cross... which means he prolly doesnt like them very much.... and the crazies overanalyzing everything...lol
good job man.
I always wondered why Catholics worship a murder weapon...
It's a shame nobody makes videos exploiting atheism. Sorry i just don't feel i am a machine. But if your not educated about the religion, and don't have respect for the faith of others, you have a lot of morality to contemplate about. Just because some things seem to be factual doesn't mean they're true. Unless your spectrum of thought consists of only what today's general society preaches. think for yourself.
I like to think for myself, that's why I don't specifically follow anyone else's belief system.
I do have respect for the faith of others, but when others stop appreciating that they should have respect for viewpoints that are not their own, I start having problems. When Catholics tell people that they're going to hell for not listening to them, that's when I've got a problem.
I get it but maybe just a bad idea
It was kinda funny and I understand the point of view but I think if you were more knowledgeable about Catholicism you could have made a much more powerful statement. Although I am catholic I'll be the first to tell you that the religious basis itself is flawed but that's not to say that all Christians do everything with a malice intent. I see most of the post on here exclaiming tolerance along with others in similar reference but, are you really tolerant of Christians? i mean really a lot of us are victims of our own judgment. Hypocrisy is everywhere and everybody is blinded by it. how many videos are there of Jewish and Muslim based religions? not many and they are all on the same tree of religion just with different branches. I do not agree with most things in catholic church teachings and what a surprise... you're allowed to do that. i am not going to be excommunicated from the church because i believe being gay is not a sin. with that said, this video was a bad idea to me because you will offend a lot of people. everyone who isn't offend is going to say lighten up but that fact of the matter is the your attacking someone's life and beliefs and saying they're a bad thing. these people aren't criminals... they are people with different views that you don't share and its unfair to question them. same goes for the Christians offended. this is not the land of God... it is the land of the FREE. a place where you can believe what ever you want. if being gay is a sin then they don't get married in church but they can still get married in court by a judge which is separate from religious bias. this will always and forever be a subject of issue until people start approaching both sides with compassion and open mindedness. now i've tried my best to be as nutral as i can but i am sorry if in some way i offended anyone.
religion aside i thought your animation was good. the jokes were a bit too short lived but were funny at times. maybe a little better delivery with some of the characters. other than that it was decent. 6/10
I'd like to think I'm tolerant of people who are tolerant of me. This cartoon was not intended to summarize an entire group of people, but rather the highly-conservative, hateful, sub-catagory within Christians who seem to have problems with anyone whose views deviate from theirs.
I'd like it to be noted that the first segment of this cartoon was about Jews.
I do not consider it unfair to question someone else's belief system any more than I consider it unfair to question my own. Open mindedness is in my own personal opinion a good quality. I believe that if somebody wants to have their own belief system, that's fine by me, just as long as they don't start willfully imposing it on others. My beef is with people who assume that they are right, and are more than willing to tell me that I'm going to hell for not following them.
If we could all approach the topic with compassion and open mindedness, it would be a utopian situation, but that just isn't happening any time soon. It also wouldn't be nearly as funny.
I'm happy you liked the animation and that you found at least some of the jokes funny.
started out pretty good
it was alright, i consider myself christian but, i like to keep an open mind. extra points to cancel out those who arent as open minded :)
I'm glad you liked it.
