He is Risen!

Happy Zombie Day!

 Matthew 27:51-53
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

Sorry, but I'm afraid you've mixed your metaphors here. See, Frankenstein's monster was brought to life using science. Just the word itself is powerful enough to send a plurality of Christians into apoplectic conniptions.

Also, Frankenstein's monster was afraid of fire, something good Christians used to burn witches and non-believers to death.

So, there's no need to malign the Frankenstein monster in such a way when there are so many perfectly good examples of zombies out there to choose from. Any of George Romero's movies would be appropriate, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video would work, as would any 5 minutes of the Glenn Beck show.

For a fun activity, I suggest asking Christians just out of Easter services to explain exactly what place symbols of fertility like eggs and bunnies have to do with their freshly undead Lord and Savior.

That's right... Here we're talking about the Doug Henning world of magic in which "anything can happen". Resurrection of the undead by scientific means doesn't hold a candle to resurrection by a magic man.

Even as a child, I was convinced Doug Henning was a muppet.
