love family guy and it appears to be the same to me, of course it is probably a "imiataion is the best form of flattery" type thing. he must need the money. they copy stuff from tons of shows, so i don't think it is a big deal. i like when they copy the twilight zone myself.

Family Guy does constant popular culture references. Wouldn't the appropriation of this piece of popular culture, portrayed by Jesus, be considered a parody and therefore protected? It's a spoof.

The Family Guy version is funnier. That non talented jerk should be happy. It made his crap famous all over again.

Yes they may have stolen his 'act' but he needs to get over it, this guy is a loser and needs to deal with the fact that his so called 'career' is over. This is just his way of striving for attention.

Why does he care, I'd be psyched if the Family Guy wanted to copy ANYTHING that i've ever done.

Hey, Art, you should THANK Family Guy! It's an honor to be spoofed by that show...and it's making you famous again. Lighten up or Seth McFarlane will probably taunt you mercilessly on future shows.

How can this guy say Jesus stole it from him when Jesus lived 2000 years ago? Jesus should sue him!

Is that you again, Deb? Calling people "losers". Methinks this is self-projection, my dear.
