Could the title be any more clear? Let's try this. Suck it, Jesus. Hmmm. Still not enough. Suck it, Jesus!
And not just Jesus, oh no. Suck it, Catholic League, Suck it, Donohue, and Suck it! to anyone who honestly believes Kathy Griffin saying "Suck it, Jesus!" is hate speech.
Are you offended? Are you upset? Are you ready to flag this blog as offensive? Is your persecution sense tingling?
Then buy a fucking helmet and get over yourself.
Christians, seriously. You are a majority in the United States. At the least, 90% of elected officials are members of a sect of your religion. There is a church on every corner. Four stations on my cable system are dedicated to worship services and creationist lies. Your holidays are national holidays. To be elected president, you must at least claim to follow your fairy tale. From the Super Bowl to finding a quarter on the street, everytime something good happens to someone, you can bet they will be thanking your sky daddy and his son.
The "Help, help, I'm being oppressed" routine is getting old. No one wants to feed you to the lions. No one wants to outlaw your religion. We just want to live our damn lives without being affected by your belief in your imaginary friend. I don't want my tax dollars to support the study of unicorns, or invisible dragons, and I don't want it to help your faith based whatevers, your attempted destruction of science, your "christian nation" mythology, or your abstinence only course in how to get pregnant as a teenager.
Kathy Griffin saying "Suck it, Jesus!" and stating the truth; that jesus had nothing to do with her winning an emmy, is not persecution, it is not oppression, and it is not hate speech. Next time you want to open a bottle of whine over how unfairly christians are treated in this country, don't. Instead, go talk to a holocaust survivor, or a christian from a part of the world where they actually face death due to their belief. Or hell, just read Maus. It's even in graphic novel form, you can pretend it's a book length Chick Tract that replaces the lies and slander with actual truth.
Then go here and sign the petition to uncensor Kathy's award speech.
So Suck it, Jesus. Hell, even my sidekick, the Holy Ghost says "Suck it, Donohue."
