Jay Leno spoofs the Belief Blog

"The Tonight Show" spoofed CNN Belief Blog's Sacred Spaces series on Thursday. Check it out.

You can see the original piece we did on the stone mason at the Washington National Cathedral here.

Sacred Spaces is an occasional series on the Belief Blog taking an inside look at worship spaces from unique perspectives.

    It's classic funny stuff. It wasn't even making fun of religion. It would have been the same bit if it were a football stadium and an engineer doing some kind of work. If this really bugs you, go see a doc.

    Why don't you post something original, instead of ripping off Douglas Adams?

    It must be a slow day in religion to cite Leno for spoofing said mason. After watching the 3 second clip which was very funny, one wonders why CNN even brought it up other than to note that the CNN Belief blog has reached the "pinnacle of interest" since Leno is now commenting on it. The CNN bosses must be overjoyed to have their religion blog being mentioned along with Leno's satire of movie stars, singers, politicians, athletes and con artists.

    To me the crashing cathedral represented the continual slide of Christianity.

    Doesn't anyone else find it odd that Jay Leno's funniest bit is when he reads out other people's typing mistakes from newspapers?

    HA HA HA HA HA. They typed "Soda Poop" instead of "Soda Pop". Jay Leno, you're a genius!

    CRIME
    I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY…, WHY IS IT YOU WISH TO DIE?!

    WHY YOU TURNED BEFORE MY EYES IN TO SWARM OF PARASITES?!

    HOW COME YOU START TO LEARN, WHEN THE SKY BEGINS TO BURN?!

    I AM ETERNAL CONSCIOUSNESS, LOST IN YOUR MIND.
    I AM ACCUSING YOU OF GREATEST CRIME
    OF SUICIDE, THY HUMAN KIND!

    AS I WAS PASSING THROUGH THE ENDLESS MAZE
    I FOUND TINY EARTH IN DEEP DARK SPACE
    I TOOK IT IN MY HANDS AND GAVE IT LIFE
    AND EVERYTHING ON IT THAT WANTED TO SURVIVE,
    INCLUDING YOU! THE MAD, WHO WILL BE GONE
    IT'S I, WHO GAVE YOU TRUTH OF RIGHT AND WRONG
    BUT YOU’VE INGNORED IT AND ABUSE TODAY
    THE VERY LAWS I MADE!
    YOU’VE MADE YOUR CHOICE, YOU’VE SEALED YOUR FATE,
    THE DAY IS COMING WHEN YOU'LL HAVE TO “PAY”!

    FOR YOU WILL NOT BE “SAVED” BY PRAYING TO “YOUR LORD”
    BECAUSE THE WORD YOU USE, IS “MAN-MADE HOLY WORD”!
    WHAT YOU BELIEVE, YOUR THOUGHTS ARE TRULY INSANE AND ABSURD!

    YOUR WORDS ARE SIMPLY NOISE AND NOTHING ELSE!
    THESE WORDS WILL NEVER BE A SIGN OF FAITH
    BECAUSE THE WEALTH IS HEALTH OF TONGUE AND MIND
    WHICH YOU DO NOT POSSES, NOR MANY OF YOUR KIND
    THE MIND IS TWISTED AND THE TONGUE IS MEAN
    DO IF YOU WILL, DESCRIBE THE PAIN OF SIN!

    SO WHAT IF WORDS SEEM BEAUTIFUL, YOU'RE BLIND!
    YOU THINK YOU ARE SO POWERFUL, SO WEAK IS HUMAN KIND:
    EACH PERSON CHOOSES WHAT THEY WANT TO BE,
    EACH HAS THEIR “BRAINS AND PERSONALITY”,
    EACH ONLY SEES THE THINGS THEY WANT TO SEE,
    EACH HAS THEIR OWN REALITY!

    TOO BAD YOU HAVN'T LEARNED QUITE YET
    WHAT I HAVE CHOSEN TO FORGET!

    I SEE THINGS HAPPEN AS THE TIME WILL PASS
    THERE EITHER WON'T BE PLACE FOR HUMAN RACE
    BUT IF THERE IS PLACE, THERE WON'T BE HUMAN RACE.
    IT IS NOT I, WHO SEALED THE FATE OF MAN
    ITS NOT A QUESTION IF, IT’S ONLY WHEN....

      OH FREDDLED GRUNTBUGGLY
      THY MICTURATIONS ARE TO ME
      AS PLURDLES GABBLEBLOTCHITS
      ON A LURGID BEE
      THAT MORDIOUSLY HATH BITLED OUT
      ITS EARTED JURTLES
      INTO A RANCID FESTERING
      NOW THE JORPING SLAYJID AGROCRUSTLES
      ARE SLURPING HAGRILLY UP THE AXLEGURTS
      AND LIVING GLUPULES FRART AND SLIPULATE
      LIKE JOWLING MEATED LIVERSLIME
      GROOP, I IMPLORE THEE, MY FOONTING TURLINGDROMES
      AND HOOPTIOUSLY DRANGLE ME
      WITH CRINKLY BINDLEWURDLES
      OR ELSE I SHALL REND THEE IN THE GLOBBERWART WITH MY BLURGLECRUNCHEON
      SEE IF I DON'T.

      Да упадет завеса с глаз моих!
      Пусть будет плоть прозрачна, голос тих,
      Чтоб вечное расслышать и взглянуть
      B саму неисчезающую Cуть,
      Cвященную основу всех сердец,
      Где я – творение и Я – Творец!
      Я есть Любовь.
      Безгласен, слеп и глух
      Без образа творящий вечный Дух.
      От века сущий, он творит любя
      Глаза и уши, чтоб познать себя.
      Я слышу голос, вижу блеск зари
      И рвусь к любимой, но она – внутри.
      И внутрь войдя, в исток спускаюсь вновь,
      Bесь превратясь в безликую Любовь...
      ....И там, внутри, как в зеркале немом
      Я узнаю ее в себе самом.
      В той глубине, где разделенья нет,
      Весь сон огней слился в единый свет.
      И вот, лицо, поднявши к небесам,
      У видел я, что и они – я сам.
      И Духом Дух постиг, освободясь от мук,
      Что никого нет рядом и вокруг,
      Hет никого "вдали" и в "вышине"
      Bсе дали – я и все живет во мне!

      In my best, but perhaps not really humouress, impersonation of a believer, I haven't read it, I don't understand it, but I believe it and am ready to kill for it...
