The program often makes fun of religion gone extra crazy on their Oh My God segment. Their most recent episode is a collection of some of their funnier stuff. In it there is a parody interview with a parody Mitt Romney (voiced by Mike Macrae) which very neatly explains much that is wrong with Christian -- or indeed most religious morality.
Here's an embedded player version cued up the the right part (8:25). The full episode is here.
Romney is making excuses for Josh Duggar and the coverup actions of his family after it was revealed he had incestuously molested girls -- including his sisters -- when he was younger.
Lemme explain. Jimmy, you secular progressives have it all wrong. You don't understand Christian morality. People like you think that acts are wrong. Things that people do are wrong. And that people are judged by the actions they make.Exactly.
In truth the reverse is true. People are good or bad. If someone is, like, part of your class or race or tribe or religion, they're good people. If they do bad things, those are mistakes that God forgives. But if someone is not like you, then their sins are worse and they need to be set on fire.
That is Christian morality. I mean, what else would you expect from a tradition was born, literally, of tribalism?
Good comedy and satire can explain concepts so succinctly! If you liked that, I highly recommend you listen to the entire podcast.
