Saturday Night Live - What if Jesus came back & saw what was being done in His name?

A while back, Saturday Night Live used to have a animated segment called TV Funhouse. One of the funniest and on point was the video below. It shows what happens if Jesus came back to Earth during Christmas time and took a look at the stuff being done and said in His name.

The video stars Pastor Robert Schuller, Pat Robertson, Rev. Ike, Kathy Lee Gifford, Linus from 'Charlie Brown,' and of course Jesus. It's not necessarily an LGBTQ issue per se, but it is campy and makes a wonderful point.

'Tax gay sex' author claims that he was merely being satirical' & other Thur midday news briefs

LGBTQ icon and newly announced Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Janet Jackson proves that success is the best 'revenge.'

‘I Am a Gay Man’ Reveals Economist Who Says His Call for a Tax on Gay Sex Was ‘Satirical’ - The subject of yesterday's main news brief post is crying foul. Sorry Joseph Sabia It was shitty satire.

This was the piece which got him in trouble - Tax Gay Sex 

NOW, compare THAT "satirical" piece to one of actual satire written by myself years ago - Should white women be teaching children? 

That being said, there are some pushing for Sabia to face being fired from his job as a professor at the University of San Diego. No, y'all. He wrote crappy satire in 2002. That is no justification to fire him. 

Rep. Kennedy leads trans rights meeting as House Dems prepare for majority - THIS I like. Very much so.  

This religious right group forgot which side they’re on in the War on Christmas - Delicious!

Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Stevie Nicks to Be Inducted Into Rock Hall of Fame - Finally, several LGBTQ musical icons got this honor. I'm especially happy for Ms. Jackson, particularly after how former CBS head Les Moonves tried to ruin her career after the SuperBowl nonsense. Success is always the best "revenge."
