Gifts that will stop Jesus from destroying your village

The good General JC Christian over at Jesus' General has seen fit once again to bestow praise upon our film as a gift that would stop Jesus from destroying your village.

Also, I wanted to share with everyone a quote, about Jesus, from one of my favorite Woody Allen films. Max Von Sydow's character, Frederick, said this:
You missed a very dull TV show on Auschwitz. More gruesome film clips, and more puzzled intellectuals declaring their mystification over the systematic murder of millions. The reason they can never answer the question "How could it possibly happen?" is that it's the wrong question. Given what people are, the question is "Why doesn't it happen more often?"

You see the whole culture. Nazis, deodorant salesmen, wrestlers, beauty contests, a talk show. Can you imagine the level of a mind that watches wrestling? But the worst are the fundamentalist preachers. Third grade con men telling the poor suckers that watch them that they speak with Jesus, and to please send in money. Money, money, money! If Jesus came back and saw what's going on in his name, he'd never stop throwing up.
I think about that image now and again, Jesus coming down and seeing what George Bush has done in the name of morality, and him just doubling over and ceaselessly throwing up...

I have to say, it helps put things in perspective.
