What Do The Daily Show and Jack Thompson Have in Common?

So what could The Daily Show and Jack Thompson possibly have in common?

Answer: They’ve both taken shots at the upcoming, Christian-themed game Left Behind: Eternal Forces.

By way of Joystiq comes word that The Daily Show’s Rob Corddry lampooned the controversial title during a recent episode.

Corddry’s send-up took place during The Daily Show’s This Week in God segment. Naturally, he used the ever-popular God Machine to start the bit, in which he compared the violence in Left Behind to that of the Grand Theft Auto series. Best lines from Corddry:

Finally, a violent video game you can trust to help raise your kids.

…and…

Damn! He just saved that guy right between the eyes!

Controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson, of course, has been a harsh – some might say shrill – critic of the as-yet unpublished Left Behind game. Corddry, however, manages to get his point across in a way that is both funny and entertaining. Thompson? Not so much…
