Prop 8 - The Musical

What's better than a short musical with songs by Marc Shaiman, who wrote the songs for Hairspray? A short musical about Proposition 8 starring Neil Patrick Harris, John C. Reilly, and Jack Black, who plays Jesus. My personal favorite part about this is that Jack Black, as Jesus, points out some of the stranger things the Bible says, such as not eating shellfish and stoning people. In under three minutes, not only does Shaiman satirize society's complicated relationship with homosexuals (for instance, it notes that people don't mind homosexuals when they are making clothes or fixing hair), it also skewers the fact that Bible-thumpers tend to "pick and choose" which Biblical edicts to follow. Enjoy!
