Mormon Church Publishes Sunday Program With Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Front Cover


A Mormon church in Minnesota has seemingly been on the end of a hilarious prank that’s made its way to the headlines of a local news station!

Now, if you’ve ever seen the Star Wars prequels, you’ll be familiar with Ewan McGregor’s portrayal of Obi-Wan Kenobi but have you ever realized that he looks a heck of a lot like the classic illustrations of Jesus Christ…?!

Well the prankster responsible, Mandy McConnell Wright, thought it would be funny to sneak an image of Obi-Wan onto the church’s Sunday prayer program which features other ludicrous images of Jesus.

Speaking to Fox 13 Salt Lake City, McConnell Wright claimed credit for the prank:

“I have seen a lot out there where people think this is fake or was an accident from googling Jesus pics not knowing it was Obi Wan. I was fully aware of what I was doing.”

She shared an image of the program to her Instagram, which has since been made private.

You may be familiar with the story on Reddit about a man from Utah who placed a portrait of McGregor’s Obi-Wan in his parents’ living room…


The man who only wanted to be identified as “Ryan” said:

“It stuck out to me as looking like a picture we had growing up of Jesus.

I kind of chased that thought to, how funny would it be if my parents didn’t recognize who it was and actually hung it up on the wall. I have always tried to get away with things or pull some pranks on my family members and this seemed perfect.”

Both of these pranks shine a light on certain aspects of religion that are genuinely hilarious. The notion that even if there was a Jesus, he’d be a white, fair skinned man, with blue eyes and luscious hair is absolutely absurd, all you can do is laugh with those who exploit that ridiculous concept!
