Denis Leary And Comedy Central Mainstream Bigotry For The Christmas Season

Let’s set aside the offensive title of the show -- “Merry F#%$in’ Christmas”.

Can you believe that the Comedy Channel is airing and promoting Denis Leary's blasphemous garbage during one of the two most sacred times of the year for Christians?

“Merry Christmas. Tonight we celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus, whose mom, Mary, just happens to be a virgin—even after she apparently gave birth to Jesus. At least that is what the Catholic Church would have you believe. “Tom Cruise is taking a lot of s--- for belonging to a religion, Scientology, that believes aliens came to this planet 75 million years ago. That is nothing. I was raised Catholic. We believe Mary was a virgin and Jesus ended up walking on water, creating a bottomless jug of wine and rising from the dead. Oh, yeah, and Tom Cruise is crazy. “Listen, Christmas is built on a line of bulls---. Do I believe there was a baby Jesus? You bet your ass I do. But I believe that nine months before he was born someone sure as s--- banged the hell out of his mom.”

Ask yourself a simple question – would any media outlet air such vile crap about Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, or Hinduism and the core beliefs of any of those faiths at any time of the year – much less during a period that is particularly sacred to the faith in question? I think we all know the answer, hence the absence of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Happy F#%$in’ Passover” or similar “holiday” specials.

Do I believe this idiot has the legal right to say such things? Yes, I do -- just like the Klan and the Nazis have every right to spread their preferred brand of hatred, so do Leary and the Comedy Channel. I do not support government action to punish this speech which I despise.

Do I believe there should be consequences for such rabid anti-Christian blasphemy? Yes, I do – in the form of the destruction of Denis Leary’s career and of the Comedy Channel's economic viability. We believers can make both happen if we are prepared to stand up and flex our economic muscles to support our faith.

Comments on Denis Leary And Comedy Central Mainstream Bigotry For The Christmas Season

I admire your respect for free speech, and I, likewise, respect your right to call for economic response. But, seriously, what harm is caused by this? I thought it was mildly funny, in the sense that many things that tip sacred cows are funny. Do you think that anybody was damaged by that segment? Do you think that anybody with faith lost it because of this piece?

And, don't you think you deserve some serious blame yourself? I didn't see the show, but you exposed me to it! Shame on you - and thanks for the chuckles.

And that you find nothing problematic with such a broadcast says a great deal about you, Dan -- and sadly, none of it good.

dude, come on. it's called comedy for a reason, and it says a lot about your intelligence that you would think he was even remotely serious. clearly you're not familiar with leary's particular brand of standup humor. the guy's been saying shit like this for years; his entire career is built on it. and yes, i know you will use that to attempt to strengthen your claim that this obvious attack on your faith (that's sarcasm by the way) should not go without consequence

point is, anyone who knew it was leary and continued to watch did so because they knew what was coming and were prepared to laugh at it and take it with a grain of salt. anyone who thought there was a kernel of truth to what he said should take a moment to ponder the definition of the tv station's namesake, "COMEDY central"

So the fact that the manhas said such things for years makes it more acceptable?

You must love old Klansmen and Nazis.

And the mere fact they label it "comedy" does not make it any less offensive.
