The McPassion

Hat tip to fettman for giving me a link to The McPassion, a 4-minute short comedy. I don't know that a short comedy like this is an appropriate way to depict Christ. I wouldn't be comfortable putting together something like this, anyway. It is pretty funny, and it does a pretty good job of showing where we could end up with the increasing commercialization of faith.

What do you guys think? Did you think the short was funny? Is the just completely offensive and should never have been made? Should Christians rise up worldwide and riot? If so, should the other faiths that are briefly mocked at the end also rise up? If so, since their mockery was brief, should they contain their indignation to bar fights instead of full-scale riots? What about the underlying message of comercialization of faith? Have we already gone too far? Is some commercialization acceptable? Necessary? How much? Am I asking too many questions?
