Mr. Deity

Mr. Deity is a video podcast by Brian Dalton in which he plays God as an underachieving character in a sitcom. With his assistant Larry, his son Jesse (Jesus) and the on and off ex-gf Lucy (Lucifer) he barely manages to cope with life as the managing director of the the universe. (feed)

Dalton describes himself as a Formone (a former Mormone) and comes from the angle of the atheist, but even if Mr. Deity is intended to show the absurdities of main stream belief systems in a comical way, the podcast actually manages to rise above that and be a playful prank on the common tenets of Christianity. I can picture a pastor actually use the short issues (3-8 minute video sketches) as a light entry into a serious sermon.
