Note to Churches: Don’t Involve Children In Your Jesus Torture Cosplay

Churches love to have kids act in Nativity plays around Christmas. That makesĀ a lot of sense. It’s an uplifting story (if you believe in it) of the birth of Jesus.

But why the hell would a church have kids act out the scene where Jesus gets crucified?

This is what one reader stumbled upon outside The Loft, a church in Shelbyville, Tennessee:

cross kids

Isn’t that adorable? Two crucified children flanking Adult Jesus with a couple of young spear-holding centurions for good measure. It’s like an elementary school version of The Passion of the Christ for the benefit of strangers driving on the street.

What a weird way to sell a religion. Come to The Loft! We’ve got death, torture porn, and weaponry!

And a basketball hoop. Can’t forget that. Then again, maybe I’m misjudging the whole situation and those kids on the end were just really bad during Sunday School.
