Righteous Insanity is going to be bringing more amazing resources to the web this year, thanks to the help of some old friends.
Giavanna Signorelli was a student of mine going back to my days with the Dramamaniacs at Northside Christian Church in New Albany. Almost 20 years after we first met at church, we were reunited through an independent film group in Evansville, Indiana. Giavanna is currently writing the second series of our video Bible study Desperately Seeking. She’s also playing a featured role in my upcoming stage production of Morbidman Returns.
Jack and Gretchen Hall were the brains behind the infamous Christian drama site, Sunday School Dropouts. Jack and Gretchen love slaughtering sacred cows and stepping on toes, and the time has come to bring their sense of sarcasm and dark humor back to the web. Look for their posts weekly on the front page as the bring back classics like The Crap Skit, The Christian Person Who Sings Good But We Do Not Idolize Them, and A Hole in The Head.
This was one of the first videos Righteous Insanity released when we got into film heavily in the early 2000s. Still a great statement about the disagreements that divide churches that should be uniting for the cause of Christ.
Okay, fellow believers, a brief trigger warning. If you don’t know what sarcasm is, or if you are one of those no-fun types who doesn’t like sarcasm, click the back button on your browser now.
Those of you who get sarcasm will enjoy this. Just so we’re clear, I’m a huge fan of C.S. Lewis, though I prefer Mere Christianity and Screwtape to Narnia. This is a political ad parody. It’s all in fun, and not intended to be a statement about Aslan or the God he represents.
I went through my film archives and decided to revive six shorts from back in the day, starting with this one. It’s a send up of churches that have traded good gospel teaching for entertainment, and pastors who can quote The Three Stooges more than the Gospel.
