According to the one-man movement:
It’s sickening to see the message of Jesus Christ being hijacked to peddle a brand like Twilight, which to all intents and purposes proclaims an anti-religious cult. […]Twilight may be fiction, but it is dangerous to mix-up such a story in the minds of impressionable children with that of the Nativity.
I do have some sympathy for Green here because, as everyone knows, Jesus is a zombie, not a vampire.
In a transparent attempt to convince the rest of the world that their delusions are not as paranoid as they look, a bunch of Christian campaigners have declared that today is “Not Ashamed Day” and staged a comical media circus outside the House of Lords.
Inevitably, the best coverage of this event comes from News Thump: Why do people treat us with the same contempt we show homosexuals, ask Christians.
I think mockery of religion is one of the most essential things. One of the beginnings of human emancipation is the ability to laugh at things.

Last week Italian Foreign Minister, Franco Frattini called on his homophobic, misogynistic friends at the Vatican to join with his homophobic, misogynistic former enemies to construct a “New Humanism”. Given the Catholic Church’s recent record, I think it’s safe to assume that any religious inspired “humanism” would be identifiable by its complete lack of humanity.
But how do you respond when the leaders of various religions realise that their imagined doctrinal differences, the imagined doctrinal differences that have done so much to divide humanity and cause untold harm, just don’t matter now that they can all agree to hate someone else?
Humour is usually the best response. With that in mind, allow me to point you in the direction of the ever reliable Jesus and Mo.
