It's Been a While...

...since I made fun of religion.

No additional words necessary:

Thanks to Libba for this priceless link.

do you think the one in the middle is sad about the passage of prop 8 in California? I have a feeling.....

I watched this the first time without sound. It's almost as entertaining silent as it is with that exhilarating song! Oh my...

I like the fixed smile and the black suit, all while doing the pop-n-slide moves. OMG. That's scary in a totally clueless way.

Making fun of religion? Are you kidding me? That popping and locking turned me into a believer. Hallelujah! Seriously, this is one of the funnier things I have seen a while. Thanks.

I liked the Truth guy in the background. Except . . . what was he doing, exactly?

Praise the lord and pass the ammunition.

Readers, help me: I CANNOT STOP WATCHING THIS.

--my fave part is when he moonwalks and after that the girls go into this high little trill "you-know-that" before they say the chorus ("the renewed mind is the key".

yes, clearly I am a very busy woman who knows how best to manage her time.

Re. the dude: Never mind the Christ in him, anyone else see the Will Ferrell in him? And yes, ThatGirl, he is def crushed about Prop 8.

So what si the scariest part of this vid? The fact that they are actually quite talented. Let's face it. Can you do that?

What gets me about this is the “renewed mind” idea. What can this mean? Myself, I would love a refreshed mind but the idea of my mind being renewed is unnerving and just plain scary.

Could one use electroshock therapy to renew the mind? From what I understand, electroshock wipes parts of the mind. And those dancers don’t look “wiped” so much as “reprogrammed.” Are they robots?

Because they are so cheesy and full of human tics, all glossy but soft, I’m rejecting the robot idea. I’ve decided they are Stepford worshippers. With renewed mind powers. Scary. Let’s hope it’s not spreading via the clip. How are you feeling lately CM?

Oh my God! I just laughed so hard I had some sort of coughing fit and choked on a a pretzel (yes, just like W). Wow, I just had this image of hubby coming home and finding me laid out, DOA, with "the renewed mind is the key" playing in the background. I'm gonna go watch it again right now, though. I would risk death before I would miss a repeat performance of that moon walk.

Is that what all the cool kids are doing now days? I thought this was super funny and a somewhat pathetic attempt to appeal to a younger crowd. But I sure did laugh til my face hurt...I just wish I could get that stupid song out of my head now ....crap...

Scary, scary, almost as scary as the Wiggles!

It's been a few days since I last watched this, and I still remember the chorus by heart. Yikes.

On an even scarier note, I discovered after posting this on facebook that a relative of mine used to belong to this church. She forwarded it to a number of ex-members (it's kind of a cult) and they got a good laugh/chill from it. She said they used to be actually quite good (as in talented, not as in a good church), but was sad to see they had devolved into this mountain of cheesiness.

Oh. My.
