Babylon Bee Pushes Back and Laughs at Critics of Their Gospel Presentation to Elon Musk

With all the criticism sent their way for the truly wretched gospel presentation the Babylon Bee gave billionaire Elon Musk during an interview with him, you’d think they’d be a little more introspective and contrite about how it all shook out, but apparently not.

During a recent segment, the crew addressed the controversy, responding to a clip of a critic who took them to task and chastised them by saying:

“Number one is you cannot ‘do me a quick solid by accepting Jesus.’ That’s just not how it works. Number two is the emotional music does nothing for the video. Because there’s no substance to the gospel presentation or what they like to call it. If the gospel does not have the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, that He saved you from your sins, and all it takes is belief in Him, then it’s not the gospel.

In response to the critique, the Babylon Bee crew starts laughing uproariously, revealing:

“Pwnd. Wow, I don’t think we could ever do that again though.”

Kyle Mann: “I’ve seen some criticisms of that, like one guy released a video of that, and then everybody else dogpiled on it like ‘Oh, yeah, I hated that too.’ Yeah, the interview’s been up for a month and no one said anything.

But I actually hadn’t seen – some of them were a little more in-depth, where they’re just like, ‘oh, I wasn’t comfortable with joking around with the guy who’s actually not a believer.’ And, and making the gospel kind of a joke, even though they understood that it was satire and we were just being silly. But I hadn’t seen that. He’s like, ‘You guys did a terrible job at presenting the gospel.”

They conclude by talking about the emotional music that was overlayed at the end, revealing that it was on purpose, “It’s almost like that was the joke. That’s exactly what we were trying to parody.”

In short, The Babylon Bee and Editor-in-Chief Kyle Mann continue to treat the whole thing as a joke, sharing that they never intended the presentation to be taken seriously and never truly intended to present the gospel to Musk because after all, they were “just being silly” and parodying a real gospel presentation.

What a waste.

[Editor’s note: I wonder what Paul would have said, and if he would have seen the “parody” of the gospel as “another gospel” like he did in Galatia.]

  1. Wow. Their response to the criticism is even worse than their gospel presentation that they now say it was a parody. I think I am even more disgusted now. Tell me who(professed christians) in their right mind or (heart) makes a parody of the gospel presentation? Is it funny when the audience is mixed with lost sinners? Is nothing sacred anymore?

  2. Actually; the joke is on them now. They have totally made complete fools of themselves.

    On another note; out of all of the criticisms that they received; they respond to someone I am not aware of. Why didnt they respond to some of the WELL KNOWN men of God?

  3. Much ado over nothing – every conversation about the Gospel doesn’t have to be a solemn, organ-accompanied wake. These guys are satarists and Musk is, to be kind, a goof. Kudos to the BB guys for broaching the subject and giving Elon food for thought – you never know when a seed will take root.

  4. They do this for every guest they interview, whether the guest is Christian or not. I think it is a parody of the way many churches do altar calls while also not really preaching much about the gospel, but preaching Jesus loves you and helps you through life . I don’t think it is the wisest way to make that statement. I am only privy to what is shown on the video and not to whatever else may have been discussed privately with any particular guest.

  5. While I’ve always appreciated their satire, they should not be satirizing the gospel. Maybe they’re not actually Christians? Maybe Christians should not be supporting them?

  6. It appears their ‘satire’ switch is always turned on, however inappropriate. Musk viewed the conversation more sincerely than they, which brings significant shame upon their response. Indefensible, no matter how they try to twist what we all saw and explain it away. Someone who’s guided by the Holy Spirit would’ve reacted seriously or at least been regretfully repentant. It was not a ‘satire’ moment. They exposed themselves and made clear who they are not, IMO.
