Mark Morford slams the “stillbirth” of GodTube with a scathing column. Excerpt:

But wait! Salvation is, apparently, finally at hand. Witness, won’t you, the stillbirth of GodTube.com, the place where good, Net-fearing Christians can go to see awful Christian rap videos and grainy evangelical sermons and 101 flavors of all-American sanctimony with, quite naturally, not a hint of sex or deep humor or true spiritual exploration or religious tolerance. Praise!

Witness, in other words, the thing that modern Christianity seems to do best, and I don’t mean help justify brutal unwinnable wars or slam gay people or bash women’s rights or promote ignorance of stem cell research or science or music. Because oh hell yes, that’s there for you, in heaps and droves and mounds. I mean the other thing: to fracture. To splinter and divide and segregate. You know, to exclude.

I actually thought that GodTube was a joke, but it is 100% real. Crazy.
