Posted on 10/29/2009 12:28:42 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Comedian Larry David is under attack from critics who say he pushed the mocking of religion and Christian belief in miracles over the edge in the latest episode of his HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which the cable network defended as "playful."

###

I refuse to contribute one thin dime to support the ongoing coarsening of American culture by such talentless, secular purveyors of cheap “humor” as the odious Larry David.

I define that as playful.

Thought I saw his ex-wife Laurie in a store shop window in downtown Amsterdam once, or maybe that was his mother.

One just never knows what's going on with such people.

Just curious, what if he p1ssed on a picture of Mohammed, or Ali, or some muslim poobah? What if he urinated on a picture of the Koran?

I am so sick and tired of Christians and Christianity being subjected to this kind of thing.

He wont because they know that Muslims will make an example out of him that goes FAR beyond picket signs outside an office.

The “joke” was really childish. True bathroom humor. Not overly funny.

A “brave” joke would be urinating on the Koran. Or toss the Koran in the garbage can while saying aloud “What a bunch of lies.”

That would be brave indeed.

It is the double principle of liberalism: Pitting groups against each other. What goes for A doesn't work for B. They are intolerant and self-centered.

It’s not even an original idea. It’s already been done on the taxpayer dime.

“Piss Christ is a 1987 photograph by photographer Andres Serrano. It depicts a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine. The piece was a winner of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art’s “Awards in the Visual Arts” competition,[1] which is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a United States Government agency that offers support and funding for artistic projects.”

Let’s see him do that with a picture of the Obamessiah. He could even ask for an NEA grant.

I am getting f’ng tired of atheists and other creeps insulting and mocking Christianity just because they know we have a commandment to not kill them. There is no way in hell that Larry David has the balls to piss on a picture of Mohammed. Maybe some enterprising person will edit the video and substitute a picture of Mohammed into the video and post it on youtube. Satisfying as that might be, it is probably illegal.

Newsweak caused rioting with false reports of korans being flushed down the toilet.

Christians are raised/taught to forgive and all the bashers know this. We don’t cut peoples heads off like muslims or behave irrationally otherwise the bashers would then say we are un-Christian

It's not simply "mocking of religion"

It's a case of a godless secular jew with hatred of Christians, who was allowed to peddle his hatred to the masses.

His peers in Hollywood (writers, producers, etc.) obviously did not have a problem with it, and thought it was a good idea to put the scene into the show.

Sadly for him, America is not wholly Godless yet, and they still maintain a vestige of a moral compass. Folks who do not have a god do not have an unchanging, immutable moral compass, no matter what their religion may be.

Some enterprising techie should take the video and alter it so it shows him urinating on the Koran.

Then post it on Utube and get the Muslim world involved.

Too bad for Mr. David that I don't buy ANY of his cruddy products.

Amazing how much gets done once the TV gets tossed out.

We moved into our house just as Hurrican Ike was waning. A lot of stuff was nonoperational. No cable, no internet, not even a phone landline.

I am a lot more productive!

When was this story covered by CNN? MSNBC? Rachel Maddow? Chris Matthews? Ed Shultz? Did Keith Olbermann get all bent out of shape over this? Just wondering...

Well then, let's hope he "playfully" pees on the Koran. What are the odds? :-)

Who in heck watches this show? I was told by a friend that I ‘had’ to see it a couple of years ago, so I rented a dvd. Couldn’t get through the second episode. I didn’t know it was still on.

I’m pretty sure the first time I heard of this show was when I posted the article. Maybe there was a previous reference and I tossed it from the memory bank.
