And another thing

Jesus of Nazareth has no legal immunity to criticism, be it genuine or slanderous and in fact, a cornerstone of our republic is my right to say what I please about him. But you can't tell that to the cringing, timorous bastards of the media or the bombastic, peremptory theotwits who insist on badgering us about blasphemy while buggering kids and stealing from the alms box.

After receiving her Emmy last weekend, Ms Griffith said:
"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."
That's absolutely true and since it's a bit of a joke at her own expense, it's funny. The question of whether Jesus or any other god has a sense of humor is of course moot, but the people who pretend gods exist for power and profit do not tolerate humor and they have bullied the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences into bleeping and redacting her speech. Catholic League President Bill Donohue, called it a "vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech" yesterday. Bill doesn't know what hate speech is. This is hate speech: "Fuck you Bill - and the Bible you slithered in on."

Bill doesn't seem to know that we don't have and may not legally have blasphemy laws in the US and he doesn't seem to know that someone who does not exist can neither be harmed by anything or protected by law. Bill seems to think he has an invisible bodyguard. Fuck him too.

Of course they have every right to air what they want but the right is mine to decide to ignore their tawdry events as well.

I am sure if God is as powerful as they say and was offended by Kathy Griffin, he can handle it himself.

Yes, I've often wondered why anybody's God had to be protected, but then it isn't really a diety we're protecting from harm, but our comfort.
