On a Catholic mailing list, a poster pointed out the similiarities between Kenny in South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut and Jesus (the real one, not the one in South Park). Kenny is killed and descends to Hell. On earth, everything turns to shit because people don't understand how to be. Just when everything looks lost, Kenny comes back from the dead and ends the war. Then, he shows people who and what he really is (by taking off his hood), and ascends to Heaven. Probably a coincidence, but interesting nonetheless.
