It seems it's hip these days, to bash Christianity in film and tv. This movie does it with its' disrespectful position on the Christian faith. It's used a punchline to drive home the point that they don't believe in religion. I went back and forth on liking this movie, and hating it. What I decided on was, that the writer(s) didn't need to make fun of a religion, in order to convince us of the character's "place" in the universe, and of the Earth. It was readily apparent that the way they were living, the philosophies they spoke of (Buddhism mentioned twice), the way they were different from everyone else was a differing viewpoint - and that making fun of Christianity was just a cheap shot, something so very prevalent in Hollywood today. How can they ever expect to be respected for a differing viewpoint, when they don't extend the same courtesy to others ? Hypocrites, who are no better than me, no better than you. If they had substituted Christianity, with Judaism, Muslim, Wiccan, or any other "group", would it have been so easily accepted by the masses ? It should be just as easy to respect other's beliefs and customs, as it is to make fun of them. I was also offended at the continued vulgar language prevalent around and by the children in this movie. We're raising a planet full of kids who know no boundaries of decency. It's a form of child abuse. If you are 50 or over, then most likely, you were not raised to use or hear the words F***, God D***, S***, and others, until you were maybe 10 or over.
