I am currently planning to examine religion in pop culture on youtube. I would really like it if anyone could help by providing examples of depictions of religious people (especially christians in pop culture scenarios.

Marilyn Manson comes to mind. A really interesting artist in my opinion. Very popular with the atheists, but often a commentator through his lyrics on the oppressive nature of religion. His lyrics include the following: ""

I absolutely loath the Christian music artists. I won't even listen to them. Saccharin fluff. Nonsense. Pagan. But some artists who are Christian you wouldn't think are Christian like Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Bob Dylan in the late 1970's had an interesting conversion.

South Park is a great topical show which often deals with religion, though they are atheists and produce what you might expect atheists to produce. Like Manson they are an excellent topical source of religious commentary.

Thanks. This should be very helpful in my youtube channel I intend to make. Hopefully there won't be too many haters. Maybe I can even get some money out of it through ads and patreon if I'm popular enough.

It might help if you were to link to existing examples of how you present such work. I mean, videos, blogs, sites, for examples.

Three come to mind. The first is rock stars who ridicule or express anti religious sentiments. Maybe the Beatles "Imagine" or Mick Jaggers Satanic imagery. You are already on to some contemporary examples, such as that blonde lesbian from New Jersey, can't recall her name just now. Beyonce is another. Check out the famous you tube video on her Superbowl half time show where she morphs Satanic. I'm not saying it is true, but the whole field of stars selling their souls for fame is huge on you tube right now.

The second is a little trickier, but examples are on You Tube. That would be the Marxist/Stalinist/Islamic mission to destroy the Christian and Orthodox church. Each uses the popular media. You have to go back into the 1930's for this. I mean stuff like Nazi death cult.

Finally, third, would be the Illuminati, conspiracy, anti-Masonic, Anti-Catholic, web site on the internet. There are plenty of them. They come up with the weirdest graphics to show religious leaders in strange ways.

I don't have anything created at the moment. I am just researching into pop culture depictions and trying to gauge the demand for such a youtube channel.

Also thanks for the examples of religion in pop culture. These have been very helpful.

Three examples that popped into my mind.

Portrayal of Jesus in the Family Guy: http://familyguy.wikia.com...

South Park ep 201 controversy (Portrayal of Muhammad pbuh): https://en.wikipedia.org...(South_Park)

Saint Young Men (A Japanese comic that portrays Jesus and Buddha on a summer vacation) : https://en.wikipedia.org...
"Praise Allah."

Christian religion is really all over the american pop culture, and especially prominent in pop music. Mariah Carey is a christian and God/faith are recurrent topics in her lyrics. Her song "Fly Like a Bird" talks about God, and her song "One Child" is a christmas song that talks about the birth of Jesus.

Hope that helps

I thought Bob Dylan sold his soul (?) Yeah I'm pretty sure he said his soul was sold to become famous. If he has converted, no doubt it's only to get his soul back. But I don't think he can. These sales are usually final and iron clad. He should have read the fine print. Alice Cooper is definitely a Christian. The quality of music will always be an indication. Alice Cooper was terrible. He definitely kept his soul.

South Park is a great topical show which often deals with religion, though they are atheists and produce what you might expect atheists to produce. Like Manson they are an excellent topical source of religious commentary.

Or maybe they just pretend to be Atheists to further bump the Atheistic agenda. There's a lot of that going around.

Please do, we can always use more laughs.

Ahhh. Typical atheist use of mockery to disempower religion. I believe this might by touched upon on the planned Pop culture vs religion series.

Are you able to build content with a playlist? It has been a while since I used YouTube, but I think I recall it is possible to favorite videos and assemble them into a playlist.
Then, you need a way to comment, so we would know your thoughts on the subjects.
I was recently looking at the subject of stars who sold out to the devil. Weird ones like Elvis Presley, who everyone thinks was Christian. Really, he mocked the Pentecostals.

It's YouTube. There will be plenty of haters and critics no matter what stance you take. The trick is to be able to tell the difference between the two. I encourage acknowledging and responding to honest criticism and never disable Comments.

Oh I was going to disable comments for convenience so my viewers can engage with Christian ideas without trolls attacking them with pointless rhetoric and to avoid dangerous harassment.

I would like to have a free and open chat, however due to the very real issue of harassment and degrading of viewers it is likely a highly moderated space would be needed which I can't maintain so comments will be removed wholesale.

No. It's to stop the rampant hatred and harassment that is certain to be provoked by atheist trolls. I want a safe space where my viewers and myself don't have to suffer barrages of abuse.
