Avengers Infinity War – Jesus was the Joke

Jesus Christ is not material for jokes!

Hello dear readers,

I hope that you are all doing very well. Over the weekend, I watched the newest installment of the Avengers franchise, a Disney production, entitled: Infinity War.
I am not one to review movies, and this post does not contain any spoilers, except for the following exchange between two characters that left me saddened for the remainder of the show.

The exchange:

“Who is your master?”

To which the other character responds,

“What, am I supposed to say ‘Jesus’?”

And then the theatre (minus our family and a few others) erupted into laughter.

Was that joke necessary? I hardly think so.

The movie is appropriately titled: Infinity War. This is how it feels; there is an infinite amount of attacks on Christianity.

This is not a call to arms against movies, Disney or anyone at all.

This is a call to prayer.

We need to pray for all those who think that this joke is funny, for those who think that writing this joke is acceptable, for our youth who will watch this movie (and others like it) and will realize how the world openly mocks our Savior and our Faith.

We need an Infinity War Of Prayers.

God bless,

After graduating with a Major in Journalism, Mireille’s career path took an unexpected turn away from her beloved pen and paper. It took an equally unexpected turn of events for Mireille to start writing again.After spending many hours (too many!) watching super hero cartoons with her son, she realized that most Christian children are unaware of their superpowers!She set about creating the SuperHolies: the Fruits of the Holy Spirit re-imagined as superpowers to grab the children’s attention and teach them about their faith and its glory.

    When people were laughing, I was also questioning why this was funny. I’m not that religious but this one really crossed the line. Like it’s funny that we believe in Jesus? They can say anything there to replace Jesus. Could be Buddha, or someone else. It’s just not right and yet producers approved it, people laughed at it….

    I was also left with a bitter taste in my mouth after that “joke”. When Dr Strange said “Who is your master”, immediately Matthew 6:24 came to mind, so I can see how Jesus would be a better pun than Buddha or anyone else. I still think it was distasteful, specially in a time in history where it seems that everybody is more sensitive towards hurting others, Christians are fair game to mock.

    The joke was to bring attention to how D. Strange’s vocabulary is fancy and formal. It’s not funny to believe in Jesus, it is funny to address people asking who they serve LIKE if you were talking in a religious context.

    We just saw the movie and heard the Jesus joke. Not at all funny. It ruined the movie. We will not go to any more Marvel films. We have seen every movie to date. We will not go to Ant man and Wasp or any future Marvel movies.

    I haven’t seen all of these movies but I did see this one and heard the line. It was very uncomfortable especially since it came from Chris Pratt, who is a professed Christian himself. Sad.

    Yea but the next lines were
    Iron Man: you’re from Earth
    Starlord: no I’m from Minnesota
    Iron Man: That’s Earth
    If Starlord was abducted at 8 his only knowledge of any Master, despite gallivanting the galaxies, is Jesus. His faith is so strong that it survived into adulthood.
