Hollywood funnyman Jack Black has played a heavenly role in America's gay rights movement - he portrays Jesus in an online skit which mocks California's decision to ban same-sex marriages.
The Kung Fu Panda star appears in the three-minute comedy sketch alongside openly gay How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris.
Black takes a comedic turn as the Son of God in the short musical sketch, in which he tries to resolve the conflicts between gay rights advocates and California citizens who voted in favour of the controversial Proposition 8.
The law was ban on same-sex unions, which was overturned in May (08), was re-introduced after a ballot on Proposition 8 early in November (08).
The online skit was written by film composer and lyricist Mark Shaiman.
