This VeggieTales creator shocked Christians by teaming up with radical atheist Rob Reiner

Dec 21, 2023

The popular VeggieTales cartoons were once a staple for Christian families and children.

But parents may be second-guessing that decision today.

That’s because this VeggieTales creator shocked Christians by teaming up with radical atheist Rob Reiner.

Phil Vischer, who is the co-creator of the popular faith-based children’s cartoon series “VeggieTales,” has now joined radical leftist and atheist actor, director, and producer Rob Reiner in a documentary that will attack Christians and call them a danger to the nation.

From Meathead to anti-Christian zealot

Reiner, who famously starred as the much-reviled socialist activist Michael “Meathead” Stivic in the 1970s TV sitcom All in the Family, is pushing his documentary titled God and Country: The Rise of Christian Nationalism.

The anti-Christian movie is set to be released in early 2024 and has already received scorn from Christians.

The film, whose trailer was released last week, portrays Christians as people who support a dangerous, militant, hate-filled movement that threatens American democracy.

Of course, Reiner, like most leftists, doesn’t even understand that the United States is not a democracy but rather a constitutional republic.

But then again, facts don’t matter to Reiner.

Reiner, whose many films include the 1984 classic comedy spoof of rock bands This is Spinal Tap and the universally beloved 1987 fantasy comedy The Princess Bride, has often said he has no religion and leans toward atheism.

However, the clearly confused Meathead has also said he thinks Buddhism “kind of makes sense.”

In September, Variety first reported that the atheist Hollywood producer would be producing the God and Country film, which Dan Partland directs.

Partland’s claim to fame is his anti-Trump film titled Unfit.

Reiner thinks Christians are stoking the flames of division

God & Country looks at the implications of Christian Nationalism and how it distorts not only our constitutional republic, but Christianity itself … [it also] asks this question: What happens when a faith built on love, sacrifice, and forgiveness grows political tentacles, conflating power, money, and belief into hyper-nationalism?” the film’s synopsis reads.

“Not since the Civil War has our country been so divided. God & Country throws a spotlight on the role that Christian Nationalism has played in stoking that division,” Reiner said of his forthcoming documentary.

“With the deepest respect for Christians who are sincere in their faith, but who are misinformed about the dangers and history of Christian Nationalism, I was compelled to produce this film to use my voice to draw awareness to the threat it poses,” Reiner said.

And in a post on X in which he shared the film’s trailer, Reiner wrote, “Christian Nationalism is not only a danger to our Country, it’s a danger to Christianity itself. Our film will be coming to theaters In February. Watch the trailer here.”

So-called “conservatives” and “Christian leaders” join the line up

The film also features self-described “conservatives” and some leftist Christians like commentator David French and Russell Moore, the left-wing editor of Christianity Today.

These leftist mouthpieces spend most of their time attacking Christians instead of the radical leftists like Reiner.

And included in the long list of those trashing Christianity in God & Country is none other than VeggieTales co-creator Vischer.

The VeggieTales series launched in 1993 and was meant to help guide children with life lessons from a biblical perspective.

The show became a hit with Christian parents and even won many honors, including Emmy Awards and Parents’ Choice Awards.

But now it seems the vegetables have gone rotten.
