Christians-how do you feel about using funny animals (& other things) to convey the Gospel to kids?

Is creating them a form of idolatry?
Idolatry was originally where the statue was worshiped, mainly in Greek Temples where it had a mechanical device to trick people out of money . They believed the statue was actually the God (on special occasions when the God was on earth) .

Unless you plan on worshiping the image, it is perfectly alright .

@JGoldman10,
Express yourself doesn't include sending me abusive PMs.

Get over it.

Here's a pic of the guy who created Gospel Duck:

I've seen him talk about his character on TBN- if there was something wrong with doing stuff like this The Lord would convict them.

Um, the 'Lord' hasn't even raised a finger against priests who sexually abuse children - I'm guessing ventriloquist ducks aren't near the top of his **** list.

Afterthought: duck needs pants.

Then he is ducking his responsibility for exhibiting modesty - a foul proposition, in deed.

@hingehead,
Pedophilia is sexual perversion and a sin. We aren't talking about Catholic priests. Please don't get me started on Catholics.

It's a CARTOON duck-there's no rule about toon animals wearing pants.

The second from left looks real cute... I wonder if she would like to come around to my pad? Do you know what race she is?

If you are going to use humanoid animals you have to be careful. Out of respect for God and the things in the Bible you're not going to depict God, Jesus, the saints, the angels and the people in the Bible as funny animals. That's blasphemous.

My 5 year old tabby believes in Cat Jesus, and who am I to take that away from her?

Fluffy is really religious, she crosses herself at every opportunity. Who are we to say that Jesus din't die for pets as well as humans, and anyhow the conventional depiction of him is no more accurate than pointy ears and whiskers.

However, its protected under the clauses of free speech, assembly, and freedom of(and from) religion as stated in the First Amendment of the US COnstitution. Bible loses.

@farmerman,
Many people aren't going to go for a funny animal Jesus. The Bible says He made MAN in His image.

I think the idea of a cat- or dog-faced Jesus is offensive. Or making Jesus any other type of humanoid animal.

I've seen a Looney Tunes parody of the Last Supper, which featured Bugs Bunny as Jesus, Daffy Duck as John and Elmer Fudd as Judas, among other characters and found it deplorable. A lot of other folks found that offensive.

Unfortunately, there's also about 50 other artist parodies of the Last Supper.

Furrydom and bestiality are abominations.
