Garofalo: Bible a 'Work of Fiction' for 'Child-Like Audience' By Nathan Burchfiel Created 06/25/2010 - 08:43
Sometime-comedian Janeane Garofalo never passes up an opportunity to slam conservatives or, apparently, Christianity. The Huffington Post gave her an opportunity June 24 to kill two birds with one stone.
In an interview  promoting her upcoming special on a network called EPIX, Garofalo compared the most widely-read book of all time, the Bible, to a Bill O'Reilly autobiography and a children's book authored by former President Bush.
When asked by a Huffington Post reader which of those three publications she'd rather read, Garofalo said, "Actually that's like six and one half, that is six and one half right there." Presumably, she meant to use the popular idiom, "six of one, half a dozen of the other."
"That's just three works of fiction targeted to a child-like audience so any, all, any one, none," Garofalo said. "I don't know how to read either, so that's kind of a drag."
During the interview, Garofalo also expressed disappointment in President Obama. "It's a drag that he's such a conservative," she lamented.
Garofalo's made her disdain for religion clear in the past. During a June 16 appearance on "The Joy Behar Show" on Headline News, she called prayer "anti-intellectual." Behar later defended Garofalo on ABC's "The View," saying the comedian should have said prayer was "un-intellectual."
Garofalo has also built a long resume of attacking conservatives. She has compared the GOP to neo-Nazis  and called Tea Party protestors "functionally retarded ," and "racist backward motherf***ers ." She has called the stable of Fox News anchors and hosts, as well as conservative talk radio hosts, liars .
“Sometime-comedian Janeane Garofalo...”
That’s being generous. I don’t think she’s funny ANYTIME...
Did they ask her about the koran?
Did they ask her about the koran?
Oh, will someone just tell this worthless bi*ch to shut up and........well, whatever she does.
A candidate for Bellevue.
That witch never ceases to amaze me.
Im done. I think I have officially gone stir crazy mad. I cannot stand this crap anymore. They have gone and awaken a normally peaceful mom of 3 boys.
Id like just 15 seconds with this ole hag and you could throw in Behar too. I might only need 10 sec.
Gayafellow, how about the Koran, then? Hmmm? Gotta keep them intellectual musings consistent.
Something seriously wrong happened in her childhood, I guarantee it.
No one hates God like this without something to seriously embitter them.
The skank who single-handedly sunk 24.
At least she understands the basics...............
Actually, these anti-Christian bigots ARE being consistent.
The Koran and Islam are on the same side as they are,
opposing the Truth of Christianity.
Don’t be fooled by folks who claim to be anti-Religion. They are anti-Christian only.
Wonder if she believes in Global Warming?
“That’s just three works of fiction targeted to a child-like audience so any, all, any one, none,” Garofalo said.”
That ignorance of that statement is akin to the old story of some lummox looking at a painting by Picasso, or Van Gogh, or what have you and saying “my four-year old could paint better than that.” It’s trite and ignorant to the point of being laughable.
BTW, Janeane: read Augustine’s City of God or Aquinas’ Summa Theologica sometime. If you manage to get through either of them, then we’ll talk about whose belief system is catering to the child-like, sweetie.
We’d still be seeing ‘24’ if they had just let Jack Bauer torture her a year ago ....
Shouldn’t someone labeled a comedian be funny every once in a while? What an idiot.
Pray for America
...and you don’t know how much I prayed for that script!
