I understand many have questions, just as those that were asked in that video. However, making fun of someone else or their beliefs is no way to find an answer to them in my opinion.
It was a satire; nobody who agrees with that video really has those questions. They are all rhetorical and intended to point out the inanities of the entire situation (which is being parodied).
Unfortunately for many Christians, certain fundamentalist views of the religion are so outlandish that they set the whole kit-and-kaboodle up for ridicule.
If an aggressive fringe of Christians start getting in everyone's business (which they do) and preaching their extreme viewpoint, then people are going to call them on it and ridicule the ridiculous. It's unfortunate, but the quieter Christians with a more spiritual viewpoint are going to catch some stray flack from that.
I really wish Christians themselves would do more to speak out against their own internal lunatic fringe. The lunatics are giving the rest of the program a bad name.
