Veggietales Where's God When I'm S-scared ? Review By Logan Strohl

The one that started it all and one of my favorites too why it may not sound as good or look as good as other releases it's still has a great lesson about that God is always watching over you and me great stories and songs about fear.

VeggieTales: The Surprisingly Un-Christian Christian Show

When the Anti-Immorality Youth first heard about VeggieTales, we initially were full of hope for a mainstream Christian children's show spreading the Gospel to atheists around the world. However, to our shock and dismay we soon discovered that this show did practically nothing but pander to said atheists. Rather than actually present the Biblical figures as humans, it chooses to portray them as anthropromorphic vegetables, completely disconnecting them in the malleable child's mind from reality. Meanwhile, the show eschews true Christian values such as hard work and avoidance of temptation, preferring to create episodes revolving around such infantile concepts as, in this episode, *not being afraid of the boogeyman*. What possible possible outlook on life could be gained from this "moral"? Answer: None whatsoever.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
