Christian blockbusters have become a force to be reckoned with at the box office. With their sudden triumph, the market has turned to any inspiration it can to keep the trend moving, and in turn the parodies of such films has evolved as well. Yes, God's Not Dead, but according to this new spoof below, he's also "a boob man."
This new Christian mockbuster comes to us from the folks at SNL, who should be commended for delivering what's probably one of their best pieces in the past couple of years. In the trailer for "God's A Boob Man," we see Christian baker Beth, played by cast-member Vanessa Bayer, being persecuted for her beliefs. More specifically, as she states towards the trailer's "Fight Song" fueled climax, she want to, "deny basic goods and services to gay people." Of course, a court case ensues, and Beth is put on trial for refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, who now want her to admit that God is gay.
Whoever wrote this SNL sketch deserves some serious credit, as they've created a pretty spot on parody of God's Not Dead. For the uninitiated, the basic set-up for the Pure Flix blockbuster is a debate between a philosophy student and his professor about the existence of God. This is all stemming from the professor's initial exercise of having his students write "God is dead" on a paper, therefore admitting the statement as truth before taking his course. Though a little bit of its recent sequel has made its way in there too, as a court case was never involved in the first film's events.
Admittedly, while "God's A Boob Man" is a spoof of timely events such as the recent passing of HB2, as well as other various human rights cases that have sprung up in the past couple of years, we can't help but feel that SNL has struck gold with their parody. So much, in fact, that we're really keen to see them turn their comedic gaze on fellow Christian blockbusters War Room and Old Fashioned. Though if we had to pick one of the two, we'd have to pick the former, seeing as we now have the image of Leslie Jones cooped up in a closet, praying at the top of her lungs.
In any case, "God's A Boob Man" is a refreshing parody that reminds us of how sharp SNL can be when they're on the mark. If you're interested in checking out the source material, if only to see how good of a job they've done mocking it, God's Not Dead is available on home video, with God's Not Dead 2 currently running in theaters.
