Start Believing In God Or This Kid Will Shoot

Yuck, this is an ad for Christianity (in general!) by the self-appointed defenders of the faith and Creation Museum creators, Answers In Genesis:

I know: what? Let’s try to unpack this unarguably misguided commercial. First, I know this is supposed to be somewhat metaphorical, but why are you standing on a lonely deserted road with a skinhead kid with a gun? And it’s OKAY if he shoots you, because you’re not a Christian so you “don’t matter to God”? Does the kid represent the people behind this commercial? Because it really seems like the kid is doing what the people behind this commercial want to do to non-Christians. I think they had fun with this, in fact, and that is gross. Christianity needs a better advertising agency. (Thanks to Sarah for the tip!)
