Davey And Goliath Christmas - UPDATE


The Lutheran Church has a new, updated version of the Davey and Goliath cartoon series.

From the Davey and Goliath website:

Davey and Goliath’s Snowboard Christmas is a one-hour, action-packed holiday special perfect for the whole family! Produced by the ELCA for broadcast television, this holiday special features the magic of stop-motion animation at its best.

The story focuses on God’s love for all children. It introduces two new characters, Yasmeen, a Muslim girl, and Sam, a Jewish boy. Not only do Davey and his friends learn some dazzling snowboard maneuvers, they also learn about understanding and respect for each other.

Join Davey and Goliath as they meet new friends from different cultures and learn the true meaning of Christmas.

Davey and Goliath is an old Christian TV show which was, quite frankly, always pretty terrible.

However, it has become far more terrible.

In this new Christmas episode, Davey gets a new snowboard for Christmas. For Davey, the snowboard is the only thing which gives Christmas meaning, until he befriends the new Muslim girl down the street.

Yes, that's right. This show is apocalyptically stupid.

Davey and his furry friend Goliath are portrayed throughout as lacking in compassion, morals and sense. It isn't until Davey's lack of sense lands them beneath an avalanche, and Yasmin, Davey's little Muslim friend, teaches him the meaning of forgiveness that Davey comes to have any understanding of the place of his own "religion."

In other words, in this episode of Davey and Goliath, it is only within the context of other religions that Christianity itself seems to make sense.

The new Davey and Goliath is an abomination.

Watch this short video (which contains scenes from the new show) which gives you some insight into the thinking of the politically correct idiots who are in charge of the Davey and Goliath estate.

UPDATE: Apparently, the ecumenical idiots who produced this abomination believe you need a viewing guide to watch the video.

MSNBC, quite unironically, calls it "Politically Correct Davey":

Politically correct DaveyThe one area in which the old shows feel outdated is in its depiction of women, something that’s addressed in the new special.

In the modern update Davey tries to show off his snowboarding prowess to two friends: Sam, a Jewish boy, and Yasmeen, a Muslim girl.

Along the way, the three children compare their celebrations of Christmas, Hanukkah and Ramadan. They get into some trouble, of course, but it’s all resolved in the end. And Yasmeen wins the snowboarding race.

The lesson of respect for other religions is purposeful. Clokey credited his agent, Patrick Lauerman, for developing the concept in the anguished days following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Clokey is concerned that the message that God loves all people has been lost amid more judgmental religious fare.

“The church wanted it to be about love and tolerance, and that’s not the face of Christianity in America,” he said. “In the ’60s and ’70s, Christianity was more of a liberal faction. There are still millions of liberal Christians who go to church, but they are not represented on TV anymore.”

Shafer said “Davey & Goliath” is “very much an interfaith show about the oneness of the three faces of Abraham.”

In the Bible that Christians and Jews study, Abraham has only one "face". That's because he was an individual human being, not some Postmodern literary construct, or some Islamic Deconstruction. Abraham was the first Jew. He was a man, chosen by God, for the deep sincerity of his faith, which was credited to him as righteousness.

The Bible is not the Holy Book of Islam. Muslims do not believe the Bible.
Ask a Muslim, for instance, which son Abraham was willing to sacrifice and he will tell you it was Ishmael, not Isaac.

That the Lutheran Church would promote the idea that Islam is somehow a sister faith to Christianity is completely preposterous. Our church leaders have lost their faith in our core beliefs.

It appears regime change may be necessary in our churches as well.

say it isn't so?

Yeah,,,,but was Yasmine hot? I mean...I don't want to sound shallow or crass but things things really do matter. Anyway...her punishment for going off with Davey...even for a simple discussion, would be to have her clitless little body chopped in a hundred pieces.

Happy Christmas to all who deserve it~

Yasmin's mother wears the Hajib, but her father does not have a beard. Nor does he make Yasmin wear the Hajib (that's good since she is snowboarding). What's more, her father seems very happy to have her out snowboarding with boys he has never met.

Davey is completely clueless, stupid and even grumpy and overly competitive. Davey is the only main character in the show who exhibits bad behavior. Yasmin is a saint throughout.

The only good I can salvage from this is a perverse gratitude at discovering something even lamer than the last Harry Potter book.

Pastorius said...

Oh, believe me, this episode of Davey and Goliath is lamer. It is sick and disgusting. I am trying to locate a copy of it online so everyone can see it. Thus far, I have not been able to do so. I might be forced to buy the damned thing.

The woman on the video mentions that the special will show what the three faiths have in common. Puhleeze!

I wonder how the muslima felt about the dog, though.

Pastorius said...

Good point, AOW. I didn't think about that. Muslims don't like dogs much, do they?

And, truth is, Goliath is one of the heroes of this video. Heh!

Epaminondas said...

Yes, but you haven't seen the equally stereotyped sequel.

Yamine's father discovers her having sex with Sam in the changing room at Victoria's Secret. Her chokes her, kills Sam and then blows himself up at Babies r Us.

CAIR then accuses Sam of rape, and ritual suicide-murder, and discovers that jews actually wrote the first episode of Davey and Goliath, the same jews who supported invading Iraq, and donate money to anti - Walt and Smearsheimer book shows. MSNBC shows a special on tolerance and mistakes in handling semtex. Katey Couric asks Yasmine's mother if she still wants to live in the USA, triggering an investigation into how Couric became Islamophobic. She is fired and goes on to a career in ISRAEL doing commercials for Mrs Adler's gefilte fish

Yasmine's mother then appears on the VIEW and is such a hit she becomes a regular appearing every day for 5 years, by which time she has given up covering and is a model for middle age women with endorsements aplenty such as - Vera Wang. She marries a jewish furrier in Manhattan. At the reception her nephew, who has escaped from Nablus to live in Pakistan after joining HAMAS blows up the entire wedding party killing among others AL Sharpton. The ensuing investigation shows the ISA AND IRGC is involved and we nuke Pakistan and Iran.

Thus WW IV is begun over Davey and Goliath's PC Christmas Special

Ah, Davey And Goliath - The Final Countdown.

They really ought to bring that to the big screen.

Gee, Davey.
