Celebs make musical mockery of Prop. victory

An online musical takes a direct shot at Christians, especially those who believe homosexual conduct is a sin.

Actor Jack Black is responsible for the video called "Prop. 8 - The Musical" that was produced after California's Proposition 8 passed, overturning the state Supreme Court ruling legalizing homosexual "marriage." Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission has seen the video and understands its purpose.

"[T]hey portray Christ as essentially condoning a very wicked view of human sexuality, and insinuating that Christians are picking and choosing the verses that they want to pick and choose," he explains.

According to Cass, the video distorts the meaning of scripture. He calls it a cynical, sarcastic hatchet job. Since the video went public, Dr. Cass has been flooded with phone calls. "Actually we've had to stop answering the phones because the tone of the messages that we are getting are the most vile and obscene kinds of calls that I've ever received in all my years of doing activism," he notes.

The short video used an all-star cast of Hollywood celebrities to sell its view of Christianity.
