Editor's Note: The video described in this article is offensive on many levels.
The mockers are manifesting some of their blasphemous best this week in a new pro-abortion public service announcement that shows the antichrist spirit is growing bolder.
Rising comedian Sarah Silverman is playing into the hands of the uber-liberal masses, donning a T-shirt that proudly displays the word feminist as she sits in a living room and curses God in one of the most offensive comic acts I’ve ever had the displeasure of seeing.
“Last night I was visited by Jesus Christ, like, the Jesus Christ,” she says before the camera cuts to her standing in the kitchen as a bright light and a character dressed up like Jesus appears. She says he told her how he was “really bummed” by all the people who use his name for intolerance and oppression.
In her perverse parody, Silverman then claims Jesus called her to spread his message to the people. What is that message? “Even if they think you're kidding,” this false Jesus said, “they’ll hear you and they’ll make their own choice.”
When Silverman protested the calling in what appeared to be a mockery of God calling Moses to deliver the Israelites from the bondage of Egypt, this false Jesus smiled and said, “I’m Jesus F-ing Christ.”
From there, she claims she sat with Jesus on the couch watching an NCIS marathon while pulling popcorn out of his beard.
Silverman asks him when life begins, to which the false Jesus jokingly replied, “At 40,” before going on to say, “The fertilized eggs aren’t people. People are people.”
From there, Silverman takes on an atheistic thrust, complaining about how “one nation under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance, our money and our courtrooms as an afterthought and arguing it’s a direct contradiction of the intention of our Founding Fathers.
“Using religion to dictate legislation is un-American, but it’s happening,” Silverman says before going on a rant over the rise of restrictive abortion laws. She bemoans the efforts of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose legislation would see the number of abortion clinics in the state dip from 42 to five. She’s also upset that women seeking abortions are “subjected to a violating vaginal probe and forced to look at the ultrasound of the fetus” before killing the baby.
From there, the video gets especially vulgar in describing what Silverman imagines as a similar procedure legislated for masturbating men carrying life-giving sperm. She concludes with a wicked representation of Jesus essentially bringing her to a mock orgasm, telling her, "I know where your spot is," and calling her a “good little Jewish girl.”
This is so far beyond the pale that it draws from the fiery wells of hell. I respect Silverman’s passion for her cause, but her poor comic rant was among the most blasphemous mockeries I’ve ever seen. Even before I was saved, I would find this too distasteful to watch, and I imagine many pro-abortion activists are ashamed of the display. Indeed, as incongruent as it seems, many who claim Christianity also tow the pro-choice line.
Ms. Silverman, you crossed the line. What you offered wasn’t witty; it was woeful. I don’t think you want any of Jesus’ woes.
I thank God that the First Amendment allows you to speak your mind—even if your mind is full of immoral thoughts of the Creator of the universe engaging in sexual petting with you on the couch—but laws of the kingdom are working against you. Ms. Silverman, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (Gal. 6:7-8).
I challenge you, Ms. Silverman, to truly seek God on this matter. Lay the mocking and publicity stunts aside and seek God. If you’re right, He’ll forward your cause and make your name great in the nation. If you’re wrong, you’re setting yourself up for an eternal fall. Please consider these words. I want to see you reap everlasting life with the God of love and life. Jesus died for you, and He's calling you to choose life.
