That quote cracked me up but I really need to hear the audio again. It was said in typical Larry King style. Maybe it's just me but, considering the source, this is one of the FUnniest things I have ever heard.

Finding the bones of Jesus makes as much sense as finding the Easter Bunny.

I didn't think it funny at all. Just extremely disrespectful to Christians. In fact, I was very irritated by King's overall continuous smug, condescending demeanor during this show.

Larry is worried that the Easter bunnies will no longer go up to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

I was up with my sick daughter last night and was watching Fox's Red Eye, the guy on there cracked me up by saying that James Camaron has found Jesus...making him the only one in Hollywood who has.

If evolution and the big bang did not bring an end to Christianity, then the fact that some archeologist claims he found some inscriptions certainly will not.

Besides, it seems to contradict the Da Vinci Code, so it can't be true. According to Dan Brown, Jesus' baby was a girl.

It was in the WAY he said it. Larry King style plus he boiled it all down to the Easter Bunny. I guess you sort of have to know Larry to see the humor in it.

ever see when Larry King was on Larry King's show and King kept sticking his finger in Brando's face. Brando said he was going to break it off- it was hilarious

If nothing else, you gotta love Red Eye for the lack of political correctness. Sometimes I feel guilty for finding it so humorous, and I am about as politically incorrect as one can be.

We live in the post-Christian era so expect more of this.

If someone the likes of Larry King said something intelligent, then I would be surprised.

It is a planned effort to create doubt.

A few people will buy it - not as many as they think, but they believe they are planting seeds in order to weaken Western religion.

One reason why its funny is the way Larry King takes complex things and breaks it down into simplistic Larry King style sensationalism that is really besides the point. Maybe I am overanalyzing this but that statement of his is FUnnie in a Larry King sort of way.

I think he's saying that you won't find the bones of the Easter Bunny (because the Easter Bunny is alive and well). I'm sure that's what he meant. Anyone that doesn't believe in the Easter Bunny is a nut, we all know that.

I doubt he was trying to be funny. He probably meant to take a really tacky cheap shot at Christianity, but ended up looking like such a moron that you couldn't help but laugh.

Actually this was Larry King being his simplistic, but unintentionally hilarious, self. Remember, for Larry King, the Internet is nothing but having to punch a bunch of annoying buttons. This is all part of Larry World.

Still, his quote is funny. You know, destroy Christianity - lose the Bunny.

Larry King's failings are sort of a part of his charm. I used to know him a bit here in South Florida and the guy is a mass of incredible insecurities despite his fame. He introduced me to one of his many wives and then kept asking me what I thought of her. King also had the Mob after him because of heavy gambling debts and went on the run. Yeah, he has his faults but he is like a character out of Elmore Leonard.

I know my King, and Larry ain't it.

They may change the name of Easter to Spring Break, or Christmas to Winter Holidays, but they will not eliminate God.

Even the satanic terrorists believe in God. But their god rules by hatred and murder.

Many societies have used God's name, to push their own objectives, in history, even some Christians. It is still happening today.

Why is it that some wish to slur the name of God or to try to prove there is no God?

If there is no God in their hearts, why do they even care?

To me, it's like a child trying to convince themselves not to be afraid of the boogieman. Maybe they are just hoping there is no God, so that they can continue their self serving lifestyle without remorse.

You think Larry King was funny with this comment?

Wait until next week when he interviews the GEICO cavemen.

"So, here you are living in prehistoric times, was it as easy to drive those caveman cars like Fred Flintstone did, it looked pretty simple, but how do you stop it without tearing off the soles of your feet?"

He wasn't TRYING to be FUnnie. He was just being typical Larry King. BTW, I found a Biblical Christianity blog that also found this same quote hilarious. The blogger said it ranks as a Larry King classic.

Chill out. Larry's quote had as much to do with Jesus as his quote about pushing a bunch of annoying buttons had to do with the Internet.

I like that show. I don't see it mentioned often but I started by watching clips on the FNC site. I saw Roger Freidman, my least favourite critic, and I was impressed.
He has much more presence on TV than on the page.

Anyway, they are quite a bunch of sharp people but the hours are awful!
