RE: Christian comedian has an atheist over his house
Geeuz, doesn't anyone know how to rip the YouTube video out of a clickbait site and just post that?

I like that it ends with "He came through the back door..."

That was amusing.

But Julia Sweeney's Letting Go of God is SO much better.

RE: Christian comedian has an atheist over his house
Oh boy, I was raised on Christian comedy. Early years were dominated by Mark Lowry tapes, and I loved him at the time. Teenage years I listened to Darren Streblow, Mike Williams, Jeff Allen, Ken Davis, and a few others. I think Darren Streblow is one I can still enjoy, if only for his goofy-ass facial expressions. Also, the nostalgia effect probably plays a role in making me see them as more funny than they are.

But I'll take my current favorites like Bill Burr, Brian Regan, Jim Gaffigan, and John Mulaney over all of them. It sucks that my family, who genuinely love to laugh, miss out on so much because they instantly recoil from anything "vulgar" or anything with too many "bad words".

But yeah, I can almost see my parents giggling away to this routine while giving me sideways glances, only to see me mega-facepalming

Don't know how old this video is. My mom posted it. I'm not so blackout drunk that I responded to it (I hope).

I vaguely remember the name Mark Lowry in my college years while hanging out with Christians (I think he came to our college a couple times).

Anyway, enjoy. "Argument from Design" for the win! Amongst whatever else fallacies are in here. But hey, he's a comedian, so it's okay:

Mark Lowry Finds Out An Atheist Is Over At His House – What Happens Next Is Too Funny!

P.S. Yeah, I also notice the damn clickbait terminology. "What happens next..." goddammit I hate that crap!

I couldn't watch more than a minute or two. No

Yabut, "what happens next is too funny..." Tongue

Not that I'd know. He lost me at "I'd be an atheist too...if I had enough faith." Dodgy

RE: Christian comedian has an atheist over his house
The first time I meet one of my wives best friends. She was watching a Christian Comedian (comedian?) Brad Stine.





The two of them where busting up laughing. Tears coming out of there eyes.
At that point I was already identify myself as an Atheist. So I just chuckled unconformably.

Super lame.

How was that even a joke? Yeah, steak is better when you put seasoning on it. What's the punchline?

I also grew up listening to Christian comedy (and music) in place of "Worldly" stuff.

I still think Mike Warnke is pretty funny... except it tuns out he was a lying liar and got a lot of people hurt by encouraging anti-Satanist propaganda as part of his "ministry".

The funniest bit I remember starts 7:30 at in this video, about flying.

RE: Christian comedian has an atheist over his house
It actually made me physically uncomfortable to watch that first video. I wish I could say that this ugly combination of arrogance and complete ignorance was the exception, but the truth is that it's absolutely rampant in Christian fundamentalist circles.

I listened to that guy when I was still a Christian. He's one of many examples that slowly brought me to the realization that Christian circles are rampant with frauds and posers - and you couldn't distinguish the true faithful from the frauds.
