Prop 8 musical starring a bunch of comedians

Those opposed to Proposition 8 in California and anyone who likes sanctimonious comedy might want to check out this Funny or Die! exclusive video of a mini-musical starring Jack Black, Andy Richter, Alison Janney, Margaret Cho, Maya Rudolph, John C. Reilly, and actual gay person Neil Patrick Harris.

It’s only a few minutes long and says all the same things we’ve heard a million times before, but it means well. Linger a moment at the end and you can hear the sound of a dozen backs being patted.

Like, metaphorically.

  1. When are you going to fly out to L.A. so you can spit on them?

    it’s really actually embarrassing i think. it’s overflowing with straight up fallacies….kind of obvious shairman wrote it in one day

    ex: we should vote for gay marriage because it will bring lots of money into CA?

    this isn’t even true. not in the long run. at least that’s what the CA voter guide said during the election.

    I saw it on Olberman last night I thought it was funny, loved Jack Black as Jesus, especially the Seperation of Church and State thing, cant have enough of that

  4. The shrimp / shellfish argument used in the video is full of holes but is appealing to many because so few bother to study the passages. I address five serious problems with it in flaws of the shellfish argument.

    Did you notice how the sodomy depiction in the video involved a woman in back? It was as if they thought using a guy would be too gross. Seems kinda homophobic of them.

    And they don’t have a clue about the 1st Amendment and the “separation of the church and state” thing. There is nothing un-Constitutional about people’s religious beliefs informing their political views.

    Does the video criticize the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church and others that fought against Proposition 8? Of course not!
