Explaining Religion to the Hollywood Generation

...whatever the "Hollywood generation" is, I thought this was pretty funny. When I found it, it had already been divorced from it's original author - if someone can attribute it, I'd be happy to add the attribution.

“Think of it like a movie. The Torah is the first one, and the New Testament is the sequel. Then the Qu’ran comes out, and it retcons the last one like it never happened. There’s still Jesus, but he’s not the main character anymore, and the messiah hasn’t shown up, yet.

Jews like the first movie but ignored the sequels, Christians think you need to watch the first two, but the third movie doesn’t count. Muslims think the third one was the best, and Mormons liked the second one so much they started writing fan fiction that doesn’t fit with any of the series canon.”

I like the Qu'ran as retcon. And Mormons as fanfic writers. Yes.
