Down with Religion, up with "Scarface" or "No Jesus please, give me Tony"

Thank goodness that Religion is so controversial that it is being slowly taken out of the public sphere.  Of course, because Religion is entirely a matter of personal choice and therefore Religion has no truth quota apart from what each individual believes as a matter of personal opinion, it should be done away with.  You see, we as a society stand to gain artistically, morally, aesthetically and of course personally when Religion recedes from the public domain.  How else can we get to see such critically acclaimed motion pictures like "Scarface" performed by our youngsters?  I would rather have this than the Nativity Story.  Tony Montana is a hero to help us transcend this life's woes par excellence.  Defiant to the end and the motif on many a t-shirt these days, Tony is the Man.

Take a look here:

Ah, good ol' Tony. God bless America.

Love your sense of humor. Its a sad state of affairs the way we're going so far away from God. While I've never cared for those who rub everyone's face in their version of belief and expect others to drop and adopt, I think all are entitled to believe, or not, as they choose and those rights should not be impeded. The wrongs of persecution used to be something that happened in Bible stories or in some other part of the World. Its sad that its happening here and is getting more and more wide-spread. Kinda goes hand in hand with our political landscape. Guess they all want to be Tonys.....very sad indeed.

This is disturbing. Especially the applause from the grateful adults at the end.

I guess if one finds the SouthPark movie with the gratuitous profanity in the mouth of children, funny, this Scarface play is not outrageous at all.

I remember when that movie came out how some people I knew thought how funny it was to have children mouthing the profanity they did.

And I guess in the Scarface clip we can take solace in the fact that the children did not actually swear but said such things as "fudge" a lot.
