Was the previous episode a minstrel show in blackface?

Your comment made me realize that I had neglected to publish an earlier comment you made which was similar, so that's now published.

I'd forgotten I'd made the other comment. It's much more appropriate to this one than the other, though. The earlier videos made a point about attitudes toward same-sex marriage. They distorted the opposing position, but there was a point to them. This seemed to me to be ridicule for its own sake.

I guess I don't see it that way. People have been questioning orthodox doctrine for centuries and this seems to be another go at it. Because it's played out in current culture format, it's funny. Sort of a Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert rendition of orthodoxy vs. rationality, I guess.

Well, maybe I'm too thin-skinned. In any case, you certainly know that their depiction of the Trinity and the Incarnation isn't an accurate reflection of those doctrines. You don't need me to point it out.

However, I find it interesting that you see a natural dichotomy between orthodoxy and rationality. The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
