This is Just Insane

As you may have heard, Kathy Griffin's hilarious remarks -- "Suck it, Jesus" -- have been censored from the Emmy's tomorrow.

But more insane is that Fox News "religion correspondent" Lauren Green is reporting as fact that Jesus died on a cross so that Kathy Griffin could speak her mind and win the award:

The freedoms we enjoy in this country to speak freely and to live freely are directly related to that man who died on a cross 2,000 years ago.

So, you see, Kathy Griffin, Jesus has everything to do with you winning that award. You live in a free country where your abilities can be recognized if you're willing to work hard enough. That's at least the dream of America. If you'd been born in many other parts of the world, your daily activity might involve seeking out a way to survive, or even trying to avoid persecution and death. Luxuries like pursuing a career in the entertainment industry would never have been realized; luxuries like being able to insult the founder of a religion of forgiveness and acceptance would not have been possible.
