Lambuel Shares the Love

I’ve got a thing for really well-done parody, which sometimes leaves me foolishly admiring something that wasn’t actually meant to be funny, but just seems like it ought to be. I previously provoked quite a few comments for and against the theory of evolution by linking to an essay by Richard Paley, and it turns out Dr. Paley is just one of the fine people doing God’s work as part of Objective: Christian ministries.

Anyway, here’s another fun one for you to chew on. Is it real, or is it parody? Objective: 4 Kidz (with Lambuel).

Hello! My name is Lambuel and I hope that we can be friends. I would like to share with you my love for Jesus. Did you know that Jesus loves each and every one of us? It’s true! In the Bible, He says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”… Isn’t that COOL?!

    I seem to remember finding proof last time this page came up that it was a hoax, but I can’t find it right now. The fact that they have an official cafe press store ( specifically featuring the various funny non-christians from the Lambuel page suggests it is though. I do wonder how many fundamentalist types happen across this page and take it completely seriously though. I mean I get mass email forwards from people that aren’t a fraction as credible looking as that page manages to be.

    holy crap in a hat … that’s unbelievably creepy.

    this organization has to be either an assembly of the silliest people on the planet who are professionals of parody, or a pathetic group of moronic neophytes.

    Kirk Cameron’s involvement in this site leads me only to believe that these people are truly sad individuals devoted to converting everyone to their ridiculous system of beliefs. But it could all just be a wonderfully crafted joke … THE MYSTERY IS KILLING ME.

    Too funny! I especially liked “Hopsiah, the Kanga-Jew”, and “what to do if you meet an atheist.”

    I’m afraid there are probably too many people out there who actually believe the “creationists theories” on this website. Some time ago I responded to an emailed invitation by a co-worker to see her collection of childrens books. What I found out she was selling were Christians Childrens Stories, which is not what I had in mind. I quickly looked past most of the biblical references of the majority of her books, but found one titled: “What really happened to the dinosaurs?” with a cute cartoonish dinosaur on the cover. I thought “great”, I loved dinosaurs as a kid, and knew my 2 year old did as well. And it seemed a bargain for only $2.

    It wasn’t until I got the book back to my desk that I realized what I had purchased. I’m the proud owner of a childrens book of how God created the Dinosaurs, along with the rest of the plants, animals, and of course Adam and Eve, all within six days. The rest of my department and I got quite a kick out of reading the preposterous theories it contained. It had the same kind of theories as “Professor Giarrafenstein”: God made all dinosaurs to be vegetarians– even the ones like T-Rex with razor sharp teeth. It was only after Adam and Eve sinned that some dinosaurs “probably” ate meat, etc.

    I didn’t have the heart to return it, so rather than give it to my son, I gave it to my wife, an 8th grade science teacher. After sharing the humorous book with her department at school, she now uses it as a handy clipboard for writing in bed.

    So: yeah, sadly I think this website is for real.

    After looking through their Cafe Press merchandise, and finding the “Will You Be My Husband” juniors thong “to be worn under traditional underwear”, I’ve re-evaluated my opinion. There are people who believe this stuff, but this has got to be a hoax. Maybe they are just trying to make a buck?

    Perhaps the answer is that it is both a humor and a Christian site. It seems to both mock fundamentalists and point people towards authentic mainstream Christian answers.

    I don’t think that’s anywhere near as funny as Kirk Cameron’s “Way of the Master” site which only sounds like a Kung Fu related site until you see it:

    This Lambuel site is hysterical. Whether it’s real or not, we spent lots of time dressing Lambuel on the dress up Lambuell site.

  11. Trav Says:

    Ok, that site… yeah… that’s scary. I’m almost tempted to email the good Doc just to see his response ;) Cuz if that site is real, the world is worse off then I ever thought :)

  12. tee Says:

    Although I would like to believe that there are not people out there this brainwashed by Christianity, I think this site is actaully real. It appears to be part of a larger christian websites network. Some of the clothing makes me think it isn’t real though.

    Did anyone see the ruby matrimony thong and chamise? Thats got to be a joke. A MATRIMONY THONG?

  14. Julian Says:

    What the hell happened to Lambuel. is it gone? that site used to give hours of entertaiment. Has it really left forever or just moved?

  15. Joey Says:

    This site is the sickest thing my friends and I have ever seen, whether it’s real or not.
    There is one picture on the site that depicts a picture of heaven and hell: find it, and note how only the white man is up in heaven, and a man with a turban is down in hell – can we spell R-A-C-I-S-M?
    What kind of future is in store for us when websites allow things like that to be posted online and viewed by all who wish to see it?
    I’m almost ashamed to be classified as a human being, right now…

  16. Julian Says:

    I looked into and it is connected with some research by a man called Dr. Richard Paley who as far as I can tell is a real person. there are people out there that think this is the way to save us. its sick but sadly its true. I am pretty sure this Lambuel site is for real.

  17. Joey Says:

    …and some people wonder why the world’s going to hell in a handbasket. That site is a hate-site for nonbelivers.

  18. Ben Says:

    Scaaaary site. I Beleive it is indeed true. Check how Santa is evil, Coffee is evil, and DINOSAURS ARE REAL!

  19. Mere Says:

    Ok, I am a Christian and I hate this site for what it makes us look like. Even if it is a hoax, people who see this site will think, “wow, those christians are crazy and hate everyone who is not like them”. All Christians do not share views with this site and as we will not just you for your opinions, I would appreciate you not bashing my beliefs cause of some dumb website.

    Several years ago, I ran across the parts about taking back Halloween, witnessing in the malls, and shutting down Landover Baptist. I spent three days worth of spare time trying to figure out if the thing was parody or real. The purple-cum-rainbow beanie bear was the one thing that made me think it was parody. I finally gave up and forgot it and lost the bookmark, but last night my daughter showed me the site having surfed across it herself; she was laughing her butt off because she thought it was for real. Now that they’ve added Lambuel, Hopsiah the Kanga-Jew, and the Cafe Press stuff, I’m finally convinced that it’s an outstanding parody site. I hope they’re raking in the money selling anti-fornication thongs to the unsuspecting masses as well as the savvy few. No doubt Betty Bowers has the whole wardrobe.

    It’s a joke. Please. Take it from someone who knows. They are all ex-fundamentalists or evangelicals who are lampooning their roots with irony so subtle most outsiders and many insiders are likely not to get it.

    The unicorn in the creation museum, the racism and cultural insensitivity are all part of the satirical purpose, to make light of the faintly absurd culture of child-oriented fundamentalist and evangelical publishing world. Real evangelicals would never produca a laughing Jesus thong, let alone fundamentalists.

    People who have come out of evangelicalism (or fundamentalism) tend to have a weird, quirky sense of humor, and are used to such “normative” rules of behavior that what seem to be slight deviations represent ingenious statements coming from them. And the depth of reference is absolutely a by-product of the culture.

    The site does link to real fundamentalist sites–like the bombadier beetle one–as a joke. They are exhibiting the absurdity of these arguments.

    If you are still in doubt about this, click the blue link at the upper left on the site to view disappointed baby Jesus. This page is a joke of the type REAL evangelicals and fundamentalists would consider an act of blasphemy. The authors may be very very liberal evangelicals, but I think more likely they are out of that fold completely.

    But they must have come from inside. No one from outside could ever hit it that close to the mark. Like the movie “saved,” only insiders could do that. Outsiders never pick up the fine points. And they often wouldn’t guess the actual arguments and beliefs that real people actually have.
