:: [Prev] I'd like to thank Jesus for this blog post [Next]
Was Kathy Griffin's Emmy acceptance speech really more terrible than the actors, sports figures, politicians, etc., who say publicly that they won because Jesus likes them more?
In her speech, Griffin said that "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."
She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ [ed. note: I believe the remark was, "Suck it, Jesus!"] and proclaim, "This award is my god now!"
She's clearly making wry social commentary on the cheapening of religion by people who claim divine intervention at awards ceremonies. Does anyone really not see the humor in that?
Oh, right. Cue Bill Donohue:
The comedian's remarks were condemned Monday by Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who called them a "vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech."
And nobody knows vulgar, in-your-face hate speech like anti-gay, anti-Semetic, frothy-faced looneypants Bill "Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It's not a secret, okay? And I'm not afraid to say it. ... Hollywood likes anal sex" Donohue.
