Outright Sacrilege. Diabolical. Demonic.

I don’t do television these days, but even when I did, I didn’t watch SNL anymore, because I seldom found it funny. They do get it right now and then though, and the God Is A Boob Man sketch was one of those. (PZ has the video, but it is uStates-centric). Pat Boone (Do people younger than a dinosaur even know who he is?) is thoroughly riled up about it, and he’s certainly giving the skit a whole hell of a lot more power than it actually has.

Pat Boone is calling out NBC and Saturday Night Live for allegedly being anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, cowardly, “diabolical” and even demonic for a skit over the weekend that parodied God’s Not Dead 2, the actor-singer’s latest movie.


Boone called NBC and SNL cowardly because executives and creative talent know they can pick on Christians without fear of reprisal, whereas political correctness dictates that some other groups are off-limits.

“This skit was outright sacrilege. They know if they did this to Muslims they’d have to be put into the witness protection program,” he said. “There’s nothing sacred at SNL — except maybe the words ‘Mohammad’ or ‘Allah.’ They’d never take those names in vain, but when they called God a ‘boob man,’ they took his name in vain.”

There’s just the little problem of ‘God’ being a placeholder. It’s not the actual name of your god, so maybe it’s taking a placeholder in vain, but I don’t recall that being a specific no-no.

Oh my. We’ve never heard that line of reasoning before, oh no. Full rant here.

    I don’t think it’s cowardly to piss off an entity who can fry your spleen with lightning.
    If God™ doesn’t like it, let Him® do something about it.

    My sentiment too. How does Boone know God™ liked the movie?

    Nice song! Thanks for that.

    “Outright Sacrilege. Diabolical. Demonic.” is a perfect description of Pat Boone.

    Yes, it is. He’s just gotten worse over the years, too.

    Boone’s mythical “god” did nothing to the SNL cast.
    That tells me one of two things:

    (a) “god” is not bothered by it, or
    (b) it doesn’t exist.

    If it’s (a), then Boone shouldn’t claim to speak for “god”.
    If it’s (b), then he has nothing to whine about.

    He was never speaking for god. He was speaking for himself, upset that his movie was damn well skewered.
