It doesn’t take regular church visits or even an abiding belief in God to notice that the Jesus look is in. (Well, the Western interpretation of Jesus, anyway, seen in movies, TV shows, art, etc., which more than likely is grossly inaccurate, but I digress.)

GodTube is so awesome. A sin-free alternative to YouTube, GodTube has all sorts of Christian videos, including ones that teach sinners lessons. Like this guy, who gets busted watching dirty, disgusting porn by Jesus Christ himself! Isn’t it kind of blasphemous to suggest that Jesus has a mullet? Pretty sure he’d like to be thought of as more stylish than that. [GodTube] Keep reading »
