NBC‚Äôs ‚ÄúSaturday Night Live‚ÄĚ spoofed famous Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino over the weekend with a gruesomely violent, fictitious movie trailer about Jesus wreaking bloody revenge upon the Romans who killed him.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs risen from the dead,‚ÄĚ the parody‚Äôs voiceover intones, ‚Äúand He‚Äôs preaching anything but forgiveness. He may be wearing sandals, but He can still kick ‚Äď.‚ÄĚ
The parody then re-enacts a number of Tarantino‚Äôs scenes, only with ‚ÄúJesus,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúSt. Peter‚ÄĚ and other biblical characters shooting, beating and slicing their victims, all while sprays of blood splatter the screen....
Yes, very odd, isn't it, Mr B? Tell the truth about Muhammed ir their moon god, Allah, and you have Jihad unleashed upon you by the Muslims and our fellow Americans call us intolerant haters. Make fun of Christ and everyone says, "come on now...relax...can't you take a joke?"
Mr b wrote: Why aren't we in an uproar over this? The musliums would be literally killing people.
I'm not really in an uproar for it was already pretty clear that Lorne Lipowitz (not Lorne Mohammed, or Lorne Ahmed etc.) was a christ-hater. In a way it's a good thing for maybe now Christians will see clearly on this matter and stop being partakers of such programming.
Jokes are one thing, but sometimes people take it too far. I have had to turn off 'SNL' and 'Southpark' on more than one occasion because of this. There's only so much of it that you can take. I don't think they would do any skits about Mohammad any time soon and get away with it, but they can mock Jesus all day. There will be a pay day some day...just got to hope most of your jokes were clean.
