Today’s challenge comes from a reader who asked that we imagine that there’s a fundy television station coming to your town. What kind of shows might you expect to see featured?
Here are a few from the suggester to get you started:
The Big Bang Theory is A Lie
How I Met Your Mother At Bible College
Game of Platform Thrones
That 50’s Show
Rules of Courtship
House of Decision Cards

A Fundy Family saga set in the mountain town of of Separation Junction. Watch as the numerous children grow up in a cocoon of protection, knowing how much holier they are than everyone else.
I love a good pun!
So do I. It is its own reword
The story of two Gypsy truckers and their rolling chapel they call “Hwy 1611 Rest Stop”.
Hey, Darrell, does this TV station have a sister station?
“This is WKJV radio coming at yuh live from 1611 on yer radio dial!”

Whose Outline Is It Anyway?
Where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter!
Saved by the Door Knocking
Boy Meets World (and then Regrets it)
The Odd Couple-
A BJU grad and an HAC grad get hired as first year teachers at the local Christian school and become roommates. Hilarity ensues, but only the type that Fundies will get.
This could also be Two Broke Girls, I suppose.
The type that Fundies will get?
You mean racist and sexist jokes?
My Strange Addiction
Hmmmm what sort of addictions?
Frank interviews with ifb pastors (some in jail) of their losing battles with addictions such as:
You get the idea
875 Extra-Biblical Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter
With a special five part series on the consequences for breaking any of the rules for dating my teenaged daughter.
Who’s Verse is it Anyway? Which fundie can take the most verses out of context? Bonus points for making a brother stumble with laughter.

So You Think You Can Prooftext
Dagnammit! I’m too late, and can’t come up with anything new after 300+ great ideas. These shows all sound great. I just wonder who’s gonna watch them all. After all, real fundies don’t own TV’s, Haymen?
Many of them DO own “monitors” connected to VCRs. Some even connect to the internet through a Wii and get NetFlix or Hulu Plus. Some watch everything on their computer, so they can still preach against television!
Running Around the Church Aisles and Jumping on Pews With the Stars
(Dancing is, of course, out of the question.)
Why would you dress a cross? Or do you dress up with a cross? Oooh! Yeah, a skit against Catholics! I get it!
The MoG wiggles his nose and dangerous questions, insubordination, and criminal allegations all magically disappear.
Old Paths Roadshow-
Where people bring in their traditions, and knowledgeable church and popular historians discuss how old they really are.—Wait, no, that wouldn’t go over very well would it, when people find that their rules for hemlines do not go directly back to John the Baptist.
Also… Knowledgeable historians? Hahahahahahaha!
C.S.I.- Church Sins Investigation -Where crimes by other Christians are committed against fundies are investigated and resolved with a gun battle at the end of the episode if the those heathen Christians don’t repent and become IFB by the end of the episode. All male cast because showing women in what are men’s roles is practically porn and we shouldn’t cause our brothers to stumble.
NCIS:Los Angeles – National Church Invesitigation Services LA edition – Pastors investigate if churches in LA are properly adhering to “Biblical” standards and enforcing the rules. Crimes committed against fundies are investigated but mostly it’s about church members and deep investigations into their lives, beliefs, and behaviors. Gun battles still ensue. Deacon Son’s mother is cast as Hetty Lange.
Patch the Pirate Pearl Islands. A grueling 40 day journey where random fundies are stranded in a random deserted island with no crock pots, no Bibles, and only unisex mechanic suits to wear.
Madmen of God
S#%*t my pastor says

The Rules Are Right (Gameshow)
This is YOUR Tithe! (Gameshow looking back in the life of a contestant’s tithing as seen from the perspective of his former Mogs)
And what punishments befall the people who fail to give their first fruits and much, much more to fund their pastor’s never-ending vision to build, build, build!
Spiritual Fight Club
“The first rule of Spiritual Fight Club is we talk about Spiritual Fighting anywhere and everywhere. We make ourselves obnoxious by artificially creating opportunities to talk about Spiritual Fighting.”
Where fundies must spend an entire day fellowshipping with Christians who listen to “CCM,” read the NIV, drink alcohol, and where the women wear pants and shorts.
Which fundy can endure the longest before bolting for the nearest door to escape being contaminated?
Forget watching that on TV. I get to enjoy that level of entertainment on a regular basis. All I have to do is post a picture on Facebook of me in shorts and my wife in pants and let the gossip chain take it from there.
@ I Came Out
I like your sense of humor!
“My Three Sons on the Pastoral.” To include wife and daughters let’s make that “All in the Family.” Also, the type casting for the MOG would be easier in the “All in the Family” scenario.
The Wild, Wild West
Two HAC Special Agents go to the Western states planting Old Path, 1611, KJB, Independent, Fundamental, Sin hatin’, Devil fightin’, Pre-Trib/Pre-Mil Baptist churches.

12 O’clock High
This series chronicles the adventures–over the airwaves and in the pulpit–of the men of the HAC Preacherboys Bombardment Group of the HAC Special Forces Evangelistic Group. First commanded by irascible General J. Frank Norris–and later by Colonel Jack Hyles, the son of a Pelagian General–the Group is stationed in Indiana, and flies long-range bombing missions into Catholic-held America.
Colonel Hyles? Ohhhhhh…I doubt he would approve of only being a colonel! You know how these fundies are with their ranks. Just call all the MOG’s “general” and they should be happy. :
I think he would prefer to be called Supreme Unallied* Commander.
*Because he’s an Independent Fundamental Baptist, hay-men?
A series chronicling the daily activities of an unusual prison facility and its criminal administrators.
The Good Wife
A M-O-g’s wife lives with the consequences of her philandering husbands secret indiscretions.
Tammy Wynette’s classic “Stand by Your Man” would be the perfect theme song.
House, ThD. (Lol. Just threw that in for laughs)
A Fundy man, yearning to be a doctor but avoiding the heathen university environment (besides, they wouldn’t admit him with his unaccredited high school diploma), studies medicine at his church’s basement Bible college. They print out a degree, and his mannogid arranges with another church member who works at the local hospital to give him a job…even though it is only in janitorial services.
Not to be deterred, he slips on his white coat and stethoscope and goes from room to room telling everyone what he thinks is wrong with them…and handing out tracts.
The cases of the CYA, an elite group of preachers that analyze the IFB’s most dangerous criminal cases in an effort to coverup, excuse and move them to a new ministry before the stories get out and cause harm to “the cause of Christ” and adversely affect tithes and offerings. .
A reality competition pitting aspiring songwriters against each other to see who can write the most patriotic song. If you can write a song expressing how wonderful the US of A is while simultaneously bemoaning the current state of the nation, this competition is for you!
I’m Proud to be an American, Fundy style:
Though today we have lost our freedoms to the commies with whom we strive.
Soon our guns will be taken away and left to defend ourselves with knives.
Obama will tax us into poverty for medical to pay.
But the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away
And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free…
Ouch. It hits really close to home.
It’s the story of a shipwreck ministry…
