Say what you want about Kathy Griffin, but at least she had the cojones to not thank Jesus for her recent Emmy Award. Actually, she did a little more than that. From the Associated Press (emphasis added):
"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.”Well, that “off-color remark” was a little blurb that went like this: “Suck it, Jesus.” And it also won’t be heard by anyone watching the show this Saturday night. Her acceptance speech is going to be abbreviated because of her “offensive remarks.”
She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-colour remark about Christ and proclaim, “This award is my god now!”
I think it sucks that she is being censored, but not at all surprised. Some douchebag from the Catholic League called her words a “vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech.”
Question: Is it really hate speech if you don’t even believe in the existence of the being you are supposedly insulting? I mean, its not like we are going to see a quote from JC himself later, saying something like: “You know, I totally did everything for Kathy and this is the thanks I get? I mean, Curt Shilling really needed me during a few of his starts this year, but I blew him off for Kathy’s show. I mean, the nerve of this broad!”
And in gossip news, Kathy is dating Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple.
