The Catholic Defamation League is up in arms over Kathy Griffin’s acceptance speech at this past weekend’s NEmmy (Nerd Emmy) ceremony, and E!’s in a tizzy.
She excitedly told the audience “people are always thanking Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.” Big deal. She should actually be commended for, unlike some people, not accusing God of wasting his brain space on reality TV. But wait, she’s not done. “Suck it, Jesus! This award is my God now!”
First of all, LOL. You know that she will seriously be bowing down to that award for the rest of her life. It’s shiny and it was free. Second, Ruh-roh. Now you’ve got the Catholics on your ass, and they’re never fun. Ask any little boy who tried to move up the ranks in the altar boy racket. Kidding!
E! is in a tizzy. Not only are they dealing with Kathy’s JOKE, but the League is equally as furious over the possible airing of Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” video from SNL, which also won an award. A Jesus joke and a dancing Jewish penis in one show? They’re hellapissed.
Instead of using the most obvious argument: “um hullo! We’re the E! channel!”,the Network is apologizing profusely and promising to bleep out any offensive segments when the show is telecast on Saturday night. What’s next? Knee highs and patent leather shoes on The Girls Next Door? Give me a break, Catholics. You already have PAX, what more do you want?? I propose this disclaimer:
The opinions and statements made on this show are not made or approved by E! Entertainment Television. We are fully aware that homosexuals, anyone who has sex before they are married, and Britney Spears are going to Hell, but we have to make a living somehow. Praise the Lord, yay God, and please send fifteen percent of your money to the nearest Catholic Church to help pay massive amounts of hush money to a bunch of brats who claim they were molested by still practicing priests.
My question is this: Isn’t watching E! a sin in itself? Consider yourself trumped, Catholic Defamation League, and repent!
I guess it doesn’t really matter how E! handles the situation now. I mean come on, who watches the NEmmy’s? The real nail biter here is, how will Kathy deal with this on her show? You are now officially season passed, girl.
