While they have not been viewed for quite some time, today was the day we finally disposed of every single one of our VeggieTales videos.
Who will join me?!
I heartily agree to throw out every single one I have, which is none.
Wow, Greg. You guys had VT videos? I’m shocked.
We did at that, Buckaroo! But, let it be known, they were VHS tapes (which should tell you at least a little about their age).
Have you upgraded to DVD’s?
Apples and oranges, Greg. Apples and orangutans, in fact.
The peas on Josh and the Big Wall reminded me too much of a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which I watched in high school (edited, etc.etc.). I did not want my kids going down that slippery slope. Congratulations on making the right move. Hurrah for antithesis!
Ahhh…. We beat you to it. We threw ours about 3 years ago. Something about “Joshy” & “King Davey” just didn’t inspire awe and respect in our eyes. THEN they went for the $ with Saturday a.m. cartoons and dropped any semblance of scripture although we actually had canned them before that.
One less thing to pack eh? :-)
We previewed them when our firstborn was small, and decided that there was just too much “familiarity”(davey as mentioned before) and not enough respect for scriptural things. The vhs fact is irrelevant, we just purchased some new things on VHS b/c the price was right. ( :
Bob and Larry get the last laugh:
You will never get those silly songs out of your head.
I appreciate that you “admit” to possessing the materials as much as disposing of them. Solid Bible believing Christians possess a lot of stuff and then reevaluate the choices. Sometimes we just do what everyone else does and later think through the reality of the choice. Folks arrive at conclusions at different speeds and in different ways. Our criticism of “stuff” like Veggie Tales should be informed and with a pinch of compassion. After all, at one point it did seem like a good idea, even after some solid Biblical training.
Absolutely ALL COPIES of Veggie Tales should be destroyed, as well as the Jesus-junk that goes with them, because it has the audacity to GLORIFY The Lord Jesus Christ who doesn’t exist. I’ve driven more children away from the “LORD” than Veggie Tales has EVER brought into the fold. Children are far better off being beaten, violently raped, and left for dead a million times over than having to grow up in fear because their psychologically violent Christian parents allow them to watch this overtly Christian garbage.
BTW, I have a funny story to tell. Once I was forced to stop at some backward convenience store in some fly-over state….Okly-homey or Nebrasky,or…or…I-o-way, I-dee-ho or whatever they call those places, and they ACTUALLY had a Veggie Tales tapes, and party favors on a display rack! You can bet that I read them the riot act and threatened to take legal action. You should have seen that HICK grandma cry as she moved the display to the back room. I also made her take down some plaques and remove bookmarks and pencils. All had Bible verses on them. I told her that she’d be monitored and if she ever tried to put them back, she’d hear from my lawyer and the ACLU. I know she obeyed, because I went back 2 months later, and the store was perfectly secular as every store should be.
Now wise up and STOP LOVING THAT LORD!
Umm… Ohhh kayyyy…
Assuming that was a sarcastic comment- I would challenge you sometime to listen for how often you actually hear the name of Jesus Christ mentioned in a VeggieTale video. You might be surprised.
