Jack Black as Jesus in ‘Prop 8 – The Musical’

December 4th, 2008 // 136 Comments

Here’s a bunch of Hollywood actors, including Jack Black as Jesus Christ, in a musical about Proposition 8. I guarantee you this will win people over because there’s nothing folks love more than that blonde chick from Scrubs and the guy from Talladega Nights singing with Doogie Howser. Seriously, with production values like these, I’ll vote for anything they tell me to. Mandatory testicle removal? Shit, if The West Wing‘s Allison Janney says so, sign me up!

For the record: The Superficial Writer does NOT support Prop 8, but more vehemently opposes asinine political endorsements from celebrities. (With the obvious exception of Mr. T.)

    Sarah Chalke + Sodomy = Fantastic

    I think I would like to see a full production of this. Also, glad they didn’t give Sarah Chalke a solo. Shudder.

    He is a humorous guy, many friends like to chat with him online at ***INTERRACIALLOVING.COM***. He often told us some funny jokes. Seems he is famous on that site, especially some HOT and SEXY women talk with him positively.

    I don’t know- as asinine political commentary goes I thought this one was fine.
    Of course I am a bleeding heart liberal… and a bisexual… so might I be a little bit biased? Yeah. But if this is the way to spread the word then I say- NO TO PROP 8!
    Oh and I can’t wait for the usual line of truculent, narrow-minded, vacuous jackasses to come parading through here to spew their bullshit about the homosexual agenda and how gays want to ruin traditional marriage. I’ll just sit back and watch the show.

    Just because you don’t agree with something doesn’t automatically make it bullshit.

    And again, doing the opposite of whatever these braindead celebs tell me to do sounds like the best idea in the world. Prop 8 in every state.

  10. bah

    that was pretty awesome

    prop 8 is bullshit

  11. kristina

    Yes for Prop. 8! No celebrity can change my mind on this topic. Please read up really what the Bible has to say.

  12. Some guy

    Wow….that was total crap.

    Working in the California school system…I know all about district plans if No on 8 went into effect.

    Not to mention they need a bit of an American history lesson.

  13. Cartman

    Attacking religion is not gonna make me appreciate your cause, faggots.

    I wish the fags would just get back in their closets.

  14. Toneley

    You’ll find the best selection of hot babes, sexy singles, and beautiful dating right at your fingertips on one of the greatest sites, ***INTERRACIALLOVING.COM***.

  15. rob

    Where was all this BEFORE the election? The “yes on prop 8″ people totally overpowered the “no” people when it mattered.

  16. jon

    Hey “rob”. That’s called voting.

  17. Hate is not faithful.

    I suppose this is still relevant because Prop 8 might be voted unconstitutional by the courts. However, it would of course have been better prior to the elections. Better late than never, though. I actually laughed, which is rare from a Funny or Die video.

    This isn’t really attacking religion, it’s making fun of the people who use religion to justify their hateful beliefs. The Bible forbids women to style their hair in a way that might entice men, for crying out loud. The Bible is full of awesome messages, but it also has some messages that we completely ignore because they are outdated or just plain unethical.

    I guess I just don’t understand bible thumpers and homophobes.

Last I checked, the main messages were love your one God, and be nice to other people. Ironically, it’s that second one that people forget while they’re busy calling everyone else a sinner.

  19. kris de kuk

    This musical was so gay…

  20. Jim

    @11 Fuck you and your Bible. I don’t believe in that fairy tale shit. Why are forcing your beliefs on me? Your Bible says CHOICE is the bedrock of Salvation. Taking mine away? You’re a Nazi cow and I hope you suffer.

  21. roxy

    Haha, this vid was great. As a believer, a Jew, and someone who has READ the bible, I think prop 8 is a load of bullshit. I voted NO on Prop 8!

    The Bible is not a neat little rulebook– it is much deeper than that. It’s a deepy philosophical and moral guideline applied to a diverse community, meaning interpretations will vary A LOT. That’s one of the many reasons America tries to enforce a seperation between Church and state. It hasn’t always worked, but hey, we try. If you followed the Bible word-for-word, then shaving, wearing clothes of more than one fabric, wearing gold or pearls, and eating shellfish is a sin, too. Don’t want to offend anyone, just saying that this gay marriage fiasco is much ado about nothing. Raising a hubub against two legal adults getting married distracts from more pressing issues (hello, economy?)

  22. Why do people insist on dictating each others lives? who cares!

  23. missywissy

    Yikes, I don’t know, comparing eating shrimp to the nature of the balance of male and female.

  24. JP

    The media controls what we hear, for the most part. Being gay is not as “normal” as they want you to believe. It’s a miniscule segment of society. Just like they convinced you that everybody is at risk for AIDS. As it turns out now, the leading health experts are now saying that AIDS is not a risk and is damaging the cause of much deadlier diseases, like cancer. Face it, gay people, most of us don’t care if you have an ADDITIONAL right of marriage over the one we have. Forget the laws of religion, or society. Let’s just follow the laws of biology. Gay isn’t biologically normal.

  25. 1moreidiotintheworld

    When will homosexuals learn that the majority of society DOES NOT AGREE with their lifestyle choice??? The sad fucking part of it is…… All of their bitching, whining, and manipulation of our democratic system will eventually result in them getting their way – once again, the majority DOESN’T rule in this country – only the very loud and well funded minority.

  26. JP

    #21 Jim – I’m not particularly religious either. But sometimes I wonder, who is going to be more disappointed, the #11 poster who obviously believes in God and then finds out when he dies that there isn’t one, or you, the guy who badmouths it his whole life and then finds out there IS one?

  27. martinitime

    1moreidiotintheworld you hit the nail on the head. There is a constant movement by cry-baby fringe groups who happen to have rich supporters constantly trying to subvert the will of the people. This type of ban passed in CALIFORNIA….TWICE. That should tell gays that their efforts to make them seem “just like everyone else” is not appreciated by the majority. Gays will NEVER be like normal people. Gays cannot biologically reproduce. If any other animal on the planet had this kind of “anti-reproduction” behavior they would be the focus of many studies and genetic experiments. Instead, the gay lifestyle is being forced on us like we’re the ones who are abnormal.

  28. havoc

    I guess if you’re going to stick your dicks in each others hairy asses, then you should be able to do it while married….

    Give’em hell Mr. Sulu!!!

  29. jesus christ

    fucking homo’s, get back in the closet. Bring back the good ol’ days of gay bashing. Mathew Sheppard? Fuck that queer, he got what he deserved.

    Homo’s are naturally selected to be fucking killed.

  30. martinitime

    Kari,

    Typical liberal. Use a couple of big words and accuse anyone who disagrees with you of being a flat-earth, wife beating caveman. Just deal with it: Every state in which these kinds of tradition protecting measures have been up for a vote they have passed. Gays need to know their limits. What you do in your house is your business, but when you make a mockery of marriage and religion, you damage the entire fabric of society. That Miller Beer sponsored poster (of some gay event in SF, I can’t keep up with all of them) of Jesus and the 12 disciples dressed in leather bondage gear is more proof of the radical homo agenda, WHICH DOES EXIST. Dressing up like freaks and/or genitalia in your parades isn’t really helping the cause either.

    #30) iIm gay. Come give it a shot. Let’s see which one of us ends up in the hospital.

    (hint: it won’t be me)

  32. martinitime

    What about Islam? You Hollywood pussies wouldn’t DARE make a video mocking Islam’s view of homosexuality. I guess it’s in vogue to pick on Christians.

    I can’t wait for the down economy to start hitting Hollywood in the pocketbook.

  33. ben

    I have asked these questions before, and no one can answer me.

    1 – Where in the bible does it says being gay is a sin? Specific verse and chapter please.

    2 – Homophobia is a fear of homosexuality. Just because I don’t like it, doesnt make me afraid of it. So why call everyone who disagrees with homosexuality a homophobe?

    OMG whats up wit calling everyone that voted 4 prop 8 hateful? Hey no one wants gays 2 die, people just disagree with them getting married.. I love gays i pour a little gay into my outfits daily, everyone appreciates gays a lot of them are responsible for the creativity we see on tv, fashion, and interior design (disclaimer: gays do more than creative occupations but these are my favs) so hey don’t claim everyone is hateful b/c they don’t agree besides some of my gay friends don’t agree with gay marriage. do they hate themselves?

    If a father and a daughter wanted to get married I wouldn’t hate them I just don’t agree. What if someone wants to marry 1,000 women should he be able to do that too. Its a WIGGLE-ly (WIGGLE BEAR!!!) situation when the definition of marriage is up for grabs. If gays can marry then the incest, polygamist, and bestiality people should be allowed to also…. like some of the people reasoned hey its their life okay well we still live in a democracy and the people voted respect majority rules…. if it was the other way around we should respect it or move somewhere that agrees with our way of life. No hate necessary!…. no with out further 2 do…..

    I’m just glad to see Andy Richter found work.
    We miss you Andy!

  37. ben

    How does letting two men get married lead to having to allow someone to marry his dog? What silly reasoning.

    And yes, the defintion of marriage is up for grabs. Lets redefine it.

    Marriage = joining of two people.

    Seems pretty easy to me.

    People who want gays 2 die r really stupid maybe they need 2 die… sorry wiggle bear got mad jk NO ONE DIE!!!!!

    ne who # 35 ben
    Lev. 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”

    Lev. 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them”

    1 Cor. 6:9-10, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

    Rom. 1:26-28, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”
    ur lazy all u had 2 do was google it non wiggle!

    and #27 U WIGGLE!!!! good point!
    wiggle bear, wiggle bear, wiggle bear

  39. b

    gay people are a genetic result of overpopulation. Let them do whatever they want, as long as they cant reproduce. But, if they get out of hand they should be beaten 60′s style like the negros were

  40. martinitime

    Ben, FYI

    The most common verse is Leviticus 18:22, but there are others.

    And I agree with point 2. It’s just the typical name calling when liberals cannot rationally support an argument.

  41. ben

    Ok Wiggle bear – so it is up to you to stop everyone from having gay sex, drinking, working on Sundays and eating rabbit and shellfish.

    Stop being lazy, go save the world from God’s wrath.

    #38
    U didn’t comment on the only 2! What about a daughter and a father or a mom and a son or hey a whole family wants 2 marry each other. Why only two people? If u don’t understand when you change the definition of marriage everyone is going 2 want to get in on the action. Whats wrong with some one getting married 2 a dog? If there are no standards in our country then lets be completely open… Why do you HATE people who want to marry animals?? Gosh ur soo hateful… Ne who if you can’t understand that maybe ur the silly one. When the definition changes it opens a wiggle that we will wish was never opened. I don’t think that religion should be people’s only reasoning b/c some people don’t believe in God at all. Wiggle bear doesn’t like you!

  43. ben

    Bringing up Lev in any religious argument is not a good idea.

    I am Canadian, I am gonna buy some American slaves, it’s allowed, according to Leviticus.

    “‘As for your male and your female slaves, whom you may have; of the nations that are around you, from them you may buy male and female slaves.

    Actually #42 Ben someone asked for the bible verses, that was my reason behind putting them up there, DUH! Wiggle on u Ben 4 not reading maybe a little wiggle can loosen you up!
    wiggle bear, wiggle bear, wiggle bear

  45. ben

    Wiggle, you are annoying. I would continue this conversation, but you are quite obviously retarded. Talking to you is like banging my head against the wall, the only way it will feel good is when I stop.

    Call your parents, tell them you are gay. Come out of the closet. You are protesting too much. It’s ok.

  46. tret

    wiggle bear, you are an odd bird my friend, but I agree with you. My position is the same, for the gays it isn’t about being equal so much as having what they want. If they were asking for equality it would cover incest and multiple partners as well when defining legal marriages. But no one is asking for EQUAL, they are demanding what they want plain and simple.

  47. wiggle bear

    wiggle bear, wiggle bear, wiggle bear
    Duh i have way 2 much free time on my hands (fyi i’m procrastinating i really need 2 study for my exams) and i’m a total wiggle… who cares thats so obvious but when ur having an argument and u bow out that means… U LOSE. OOOO U JUST GOT WIGGLED PUNK! hey u can’t even respond 2 the logical arguments. Guess some people can’t wiggle with the wiggle bear! LET THAT B A LESSON 2 ALL OF U.. IF U WIGGLE WITH THE WIGGLE BEAR UR GOING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Benny GAME OVER
    wiggle bear out (omg i am sooo cool! YESSSSS)
    wiggle bear, wiggle bear, wiggle bear

  48. Pink

    THIS IS SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! SO TRUE ABOUT PICKING AND CHOOSING BIBLE VERSES TO FOLLOW!!!

  49. Plixtle

    @33 That would be because it’s not Islamic doctrine imposing itself on our government, you nitwit.

    @11 The bible “really says” what is mentioned in the video, it’s just a fun passtime for christians to cull the scripture they dislike and highlight the scripture that suits their druthers.

    @26: They’re aware, just as women were aware that the “majority of the country” opposed their getting the vote. Welcome to America, where you work to change people’s minds.

    @25: Homosexuality is found in the wild, you toerag. Learn some basics about natural science before you waste more oxygen. What kills me is well over 60% of blind-faith drones use this argument and it is flat-out-wrong.
