Skip to comments.Jack Black and Hollywood Stars Defame Christ and the Bible; Apology Demanded
Posted on 12/04/2008 10:49:30 AM PST by Sopater
In a short video posted on FunnyorDie.com entitled, "Prop 8 The Musical," an all star cast of Hollywood celebrities perform a low budget musical farce that defames Christ, mocks Christians and distorts the teaching of the Bible.
"Jack Black should remember from his days at Hebrew School that homosexual acts aren't funny and are roundly condemned in the Bible," said Dr. Gary Cass, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "Appearing as a sarcastic, rotund Christ, Black distorts the Bible and condones shameful, homosexual acts. Associating Christ with perverse activity is an affront to all people of faith, especially Christians. Apparently Black and company find it hilarious to falsely accuse Christians while they intentionally distort the Bible. Black ought to apologize."
Proposition 8 which amended the Constitution of California to define marriage as a union of one man and one woman was passed this November. Prop 8 was a response to a California Supreme Court ruling that struck down a similar state statue, Proposition 22. Since passage, Prop 8 supporters have been assaulted and threatened and churches, homes and cars vandalized.

The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is a non-profit organization devoted to protecting the rights of Christians to confidently live their faith. Dr. Gary Cass has degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary. He previously served as Executive Director of the Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, an outreach of Coral Ridge Ministries founded by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy.
And disgusting as well...
Amazing. They portray those who supported Prop 8 as bigots and haters. Yet, in that play, they are the ones doing the hating. The entire play is about them hating a specific group. And I notice that in the “bigot” group there is a lack of black people who overwhelmingly supported Prop 8.
Right when I think I have found the right celeb to like, this happens.
I thought that looked wrong, but I didn’t bother to check it out. :-o
Uh, it’s Jack Black.
It’s like demanding an apology from the raving homeless guy on the corner; even he gives it, who cares?
I will NOT be clicking the link.
Why give these hollywood jerks any more eyeballs?
I know that a sodomite is called such after the city of Sodom. What is the parallel for those eating shellfish if Jack Black is going to make an equivalency charge?
What an a$$hole. Try defaming mohammed, Jack. See how far you’ll get afterward.
This is like getting all worked up over The Last Temptation of Christ, when it was a mediocre movie that justifiably bombed and would never have received any notice at all if Scorsese hadn’t done it and Christians hadn’t picketed it.
Jack Black is a low-talent and not worth the fuss. So Hollyweird doesn’t like us? Yawn.
....if I lived there I’d try to cut the budget of Sacremento Community College....you’d best believe that school wouldn’t dare perform a musical mocking Islam.
Just curious....who in the hell actually thinks Jack Black is talented or even mildly funny?
I dare them to put a video out ridiculing Islam.
Still waiting for the Prop. 8 musical with Jack Black dressed as Mohammed.
Personally, I take advise from Jack Black on relevant life issues somewhere after a lady who lives with 100 cats in her house.
I think the left has been making a huge mistake. If they remained low-key they might ultimately get their way on same-sex marriage. The left does its best when they use the old frog in a slowly boiling pot trick. But by attacking Christians they may pull blacks and Hispanics away from the Democrats. I say give them enough room to hang themselves.
They excuse the anti-homosexual doctrine of Islam. They excuse it because Islam shares their hatred of human life.
That is so gay.
I watched him hosting something on Nickelodeon, I think it was the Kid’s Choice awards, and I still can’t figure out why anyone thought his audience included the 12 & under group.
The man is an epic douchebag.
If it was about Mohammad and Islam, the rioting will be starting in 3...2...1....
I loved him in “High Fidelity”. He was pretty good in “In the Line of Fire”. Someone decided he was a leading man...big mistake.
Islam does not teach turn the other cheek.
They may be losers, but they are not suicidal
its also the result of a process that began when Mr. Shaiman, who splits his time between New York and Los Angeles, alerted his friends and colleagues that Scott Eckern, the musical director of Sacramentos California Musical Theater, had donated money to a Yes-on-Prop 8 campaign.
So it wasn't enough to pinklist someone who they opposed politically.
On a related note: Stay away from the DVD ‘Tropic Thunder’ with Black and Stiller. Foul.
Also from that NY Times link:
Is this the first time youve created a viral video for the Internet?
Im so old, I cant remember. To this extent, certainly. I have done things that have ended up on the Internet. Luckily, nothing sexual. Yet. But the night is still young.
So homosexual sodomy is not sexual, got that?
I don’t know who Jack Black is. Is there anybody in this that’s a known name or just wannabes? Um, no. I’m not watching it.
The only thing he has been good in is Mars Attacks when when he played Billy Glen who got nuked by the martians. That movie is hilarious. Otherwise he is a big fat loser like the rest of Hollywierd.
Saw him for the first time in "High Fidelity." Thought he was great. Then, I saw him in some other movies and he grew tiresome quickly.
Everyone in "High Fidelity," with the exception of Lisa Bonet, was excellent. It's just one of those films.
Yes. He was very funny in “Mars Attacks”. Cute in “Shallow Hal”. Okay in “Kung Fu Panda”. Unwatchable in everything else.
Agreed. Even Tim Robbins was good in “High Fidelity”.
If you’ve seen any of the current crop of fat comic beer and pot joke movies, then you’ve probably seen Jack Black and John C. Rilley in something. Neil Patrick Harris was Doogie Howser and is an out of the closet sodomite.
Queers are bigots and intolerant.
Ok. Thanks. I know who Doogie is. lol
GOD will not be mocked..
They will know soon enough....
I have to say that my kids loved his appearances on the Nick Awards and his acting in School of Rock. I have found him entertaining in quite a few things.
I also remind myself and my kids that an entertainer can be monumentally stupid in how they live their lives. When their preaching oevrshadows their performance, I no longer buy their product. It sounds as though Jack Black is getting into that territory for me.
What else can we expect from these self-important Hollyweirdos?
Says it all.
Is this the way that homosexual activists win the hearts and minds of normal heterosexual Americans?
Well, he’s off the viewing list.
“GOD will not be mocked..
They will know soon enough...”
I am actually frightened for them...I picture similar types standing in the pouring rain outside the Ark screaming “We want in! We believe you now Noah!”
Let’s hope these folks get right with the living Lord before it’s too late for them.
JB was in the King Kong remake and was the worst member of the cast. Without him, the movie was quite good. He just could not come up to the demands of his role. But it isn’t his worst—see him as a south-of-the-border monk/wrestler in Nacho Libre. What a waste of celluloid.
Absolutely agree on "King Kong". I don't know what Peter Jackson was thinking, but then the whole first hour was a waste for me too. The shipboard sequences went on forever...AHHHHH!! Casting Jack Black has almost made "The Lord of the Rings" series a fluke. We'll see how he does with "Lovely Bones".
I once expected that at least a few of them would be great to hang out with.
That may have been true once,but it seems that Hollywood is overrun with padded cell candidates today.
Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life Jack.
Or drugged in Jack’s case.
Jack Black, Jesus, and Prop 8

What about Jet Li and Cate Blanchett? Are they safe to be a fan of?
