When Saturday Night Live aired its skit, “God Is A Boob Man” as a parody of the the recently released God’s Not Dead 2 back in April, the reviews ranged from accusations of Satanism to laughter in agreement.
While I, personally, did not find the skit funny, I don’t think it’s worth being angry about. However, it was indicative of the way many liberals view Christianity in the U.S. Let me explain.
Of course SNL was specifically mocking Christians who do not wish to use their businesses to support something they don’t morally agree with (hint, hint: gay “marriage”), but the skit does provide insight into how Christians look to the secular world.
Remember, to many people outside of Christianity, Catholicism and all of the Protestant denominations look very similar (and to be fair, we are more similar than we usually want to admit), so when any Christian does something that goes against the grain of secular culture, we’re all assumed to be just as weird or different as the person who stands out. And that’s not a bad thing; we are not called to be of this world.
However, it does, as is evident in “Boob Man”, create an us-versus-them mentality on both sides.
So what can we do about it?
We should continue loving and serving others as radically as Christ commanded. The best way to bring others to Christ is not getting angry when others don’t accept what we believe, even if they have a big audience. The world will always hate us, so continue fighting the good fight and running the race.
