You see, Christianity is a lot like a pickle shoved into an electrical socket.

So when you "put energy" into a pickle it becomes unedible an useless. I don't want that kind of energy, I'm fine with calories.

I don't see what's so funny. It's a good analogy. And, as Matt sayed, perhaps you all could learn something from this video.

When you become a christian, we will stab you repeatedly and electrocute you until you glow. That is the message of this movie.

I love the fact he always says WHEN you become a christian, he never says IF.

May the pickle of Christ compel thee. lol

All I got from this video is that if you become a christian, you will morph into a pickle, and be stabbed with forks, then be electricuted and compared to your non suffering brethren. Christianity is messed up... D:

NO its a burnt pickle...stupid christains

So Christians are pickle Ted Haggard? That is a really bad analogy. Pickles are useful for sustaining life and adding flavor to other foods. An electrified pickle may be "prettier" to you, but it loses it's utility. It can't be eaten like that and left unchecked will burn down the house. Likewise, the truth about man's mortality may be ugly to you, but plugging into a fairytale about eternal life only makes you less useful and more dangerous to the world around you.

Rectification: this video TRIES to have a good message, and we laugh at its epic ridiculousness.

Besides, I don't consider an incitation to plug yourself to a hypothetical entity in a hope to gain power a good message.

I agree with Matt, yet alot of these comments are most likely by Athiests you can tell but how they say stupid things such as "I hate Christians even more now" or "Christianity fries your brain" you don't get it.... this video was ment to have a good message not be made fun of and if you wanted to watch this video then why place comments about how you obviously wern't paying any attention?

Wow, worst analogy ever... I can't believe he was allowed to make this. God, why do you let idiots misinterpret you?

Uber Asphalt inquired: If this is a regular Christian, what does that make Jesus?

I'd say a cucumber, or perhaps a zuccini.

Perhaps with holes in it too, so he can be a holy cucumber.

Catholicism is like a pickle, too. But where it goes, no one can see if it's glowing or not.

so what your saying is that if we become christian,then it will heat us and likely destroy us?
well no wonder most of them are a-holes.
I would be too if I was getting killed by a religoen.

I agree with Matt,(Im Christian)but Letchey has a point in that in using an electricly charged pickle,you kind of look ridiculous

July 31st, 2008 at 12:09 pm M says:

You know what would be fun?

Doing the same trick with the pickle, but instead of a clunky metaphor about religion, instead do it as a fun science experiment. Using it to explaining some interesting properties of electricity. Explaining why it makes the pickle light up in terms of applied electrophysics.

That ought piss off some fundies. Knowledge is off the devil to them after all, judging by their wars on biology and astronomy... :D

I understand Matt that Christianity has many ups (and downs) but when you(feel the need to)compare it to a pickle that is have thousands of volts shot through it, it looses a bit of it's respectability.

you know if yall would not take him so literally and listen to what he was saying u might actually learn something. being a christian isnt about two pickles and electricity its about a personal relationship with God. but the pickle trick is cool as well.

Exactly what I was thinking Cynn and M.

So if you become christian, they jam a giant fork up your ass, and stick another in your skull, hang you off a swing made of rubber bands and then electrocute you till you sparkle, then start smoking and leaking?

I was thinking the guy was joking about that religious stuff until it just went way too far to be a joke. And he says specifically to not try it at home. How does that work?

The whole light up the pickle thing was neat, but I don't think I'd choose that sort of sermon to listen to on a Sunday morning.

God said "Thou shalt be like a pickle with forks in it connected to an electrical outlet"?

I must've missed that part. Must be from that missing chapter after Revelations - Bicks.

This is actually quite accurate: exaggerate with religion and it will fry your brain.
Then you'll definitely be different: you'll be that ugly, weird shaped soft pickle that no one wants to eat.

Setting aside the obviously stupid demonstration, I love how he directly discards the analogy by telling you how dangerous it is to fill the pickle with the same energy that supposedly was making Christianity so great ten seconds ago.
