LeClaire Warns Jon Stewart About His Eternal Soul

Jennifer LeClaire of Charisma News is one of the more ridiculous voices of the Christian right (imagine the competition for that status) and she is now warning Jon Stewart that his eternal soul may be at risk because he made fun of Hobby Lobby.

Believe it or not, the Daily Show is a key source of news for millions of Americans. Stewart puts a comic bent on headlines and generally mocks anything and everything—including religion. The irreverent Stewart often crosses the line, but with an important case in the U.S. Supreme Court, he took the opportunity to completely blur the truth and take Christian-bashing to a new level.

During a six-minute segment on Wednesday night, Stewart called Hobby Lobby—a Christian-owned arts-and-crafts store that argued its case against Obamacare’s HHS contraception mandate in the U.S. Supreme Court this week—a “Jesus Christ Superstore.” Clever play on words, I suppose, but its still an antichrist view that is leading people astray.

Wow! Christian bashing on a whole new level. I find it amusing how the Christian right continually conflates criticism of their inane political views with attacks on Jesus himself.

It’s disappointing to see Christians mocked at any level, but when an intelligent guy like Stewart insists on misrepresenting the facts to millions of viewers who may take what he says as gospel truth, it’s simply irresponsible. Although his show is hardly considered journalism, it is, again, the main source of news for many. Propagating lies in the name of humor or an antichrist agenda is a sad way to be remembered in eternity. Let’s continue to pray for Stewart and those who find comic value in his half-truths.

I agree, keep praying. Better than doing something that actually matters.

    And the Seattle Mariners are first in the West! Pigs are flying, at least until the second game.

  • Trebuchet

    Shitte. That was intended for Comradde Physioproffe.

    Stewart, IIRC, is Jewish. He’s going to Hell anyway, according to many Christians.

  • Kevin Kehres

    @2…beat me to the punch. That’ll teach me to do things like walk the dog and actual real work.

  • flyv65

    Isn’t the Hebraic hell called Sheol? Until I had a cousin marry a nice Jewish boy I though that their hell was called Gefilte fish… Blecch.

    Honor thy Hobby and thy Lobby that thy crochet chains might be long. May have gotten a bit garbled in translation.

  • marcus

    Hell is sounding like a much more interesting place than the alternative. Who would want to spent eternity with assholes like LeClaire anyway?

  • marcus

    (“spend”) Damn you auto-correct! I’m tired of your shirt!

  • anteprepro

    Oh noes! “Jesus Christ Superstore”! Such blasphemy! Much persecution!

  • eric

    The lack of a hyphen in ‘antichrist’ is kind of wierd. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but without the hyphen it reads less as “Stewart says things againt Christ and Christians,” and more as “Stewart is defending the position of a real, individual person, the antichrist, who is walking the earth as the son of satan.”

  • Pierce R. Butler

    … viewers who may take what he says as gospel truth…

    Not at all – doesn’t everybody know what Stewart says contains some factuality?

  • Chiroptera

    Well, I guess it’s something that LeClaire isn’t saying that Stewart should be publicly whipped and his tongue pierced with a hot iron.

  • dugglebogey

    How is calling a christian-run place a “Jesus Christ Superstore” anything but a compliment? This was the worst thing they could cherry pick out of what he said? Are people really upset about this? Or is this an attempt to crank up the outrage machine by throwing everything up against the wall and seeing what sticks?

    1) Stewart had best watch out or he’ll be in trouble like Bill Maher. Yahweh is making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who’s naughty or … Oh, wait, wrong imaginary friend.

    2) Stewart’s show has much more news value than most of our broadcast so-called news networks (especially the one that starts with an “F” and ends with “X.”)

    3) “Antichrist Agenda” would be a freakin’ awesome band name.

    How is calling a christian-run place a “Jesus Christ Superstore” anything but a compliment?

    Because it’s a lie, that’s why. A damnable lie that will damn Stewart to damnation. A lie, yes. It’s, um. Hobby Lobby can barely reach an F#, and everyone knows that to be a Jesus Christ Superstore it needs at least a high E.

    Or something.

    Ms Eclair looks a bit like Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads, except I think Flo is less smarmy.

    I don’t know why, exactly, but on reading about her I feel like offering HER my soul, if only she would orally pleasure me…Oh, get your minds out of the gutter! I wasn’t talking about a blow job, I just want her to SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

    There’s a nice little ad on the left for Mormon.orgy or something like that. The young feller in the picture is saying, “I know when I die, I’ll see my dad again.” So what’s the hold up?

  • dingojack

    LeClaire piped: “…but when an intelligent guy like Stewart insists on misrepresenting the facts to millions of viewers who may take what he says as gospel truth, it’s simply irresponsible…“.

    ‘it’s our responsibility to misrepresent facts to millions of people who may take it as gospel, sheesh talk about demarcation disputes…’ she went on to say.

    Although it’s nice to see that ‘Charisma’ News is pitching-in material for Mr Steward’s up-coming shows..

    I just saw this:

    http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/ore-pizza-delivery-man-gets-own-shocking-special-161644970–abc-news-Recipes.html

    No, it doesn’t have anything to do with the OP but I really like that he didn’t see JESUS face in the hand drawn cupcake on the outside of the card and didn’t THANK JESUS, at all.

    I’m thinking of starting a new blog called ,”A day without JESUS is like a day without whine.” And even if I never get it launched, just the thought of doing it has doomed me to the 9th circle of hell.

    What fifthdentist said.

    I imagine most folks here know this, but folks who watch just the Daily Show for news are more knowledgeable than all but NPR and Sunday talk show viewers. Also, there’s a study somewhere (google-fu failing me here) showing that Jon’s guest lineup is not biased, or stacked for/or against any particular political group.

    I don’t know what that says about life in these United States, but it has to mean something! (Doesn’t it?)

  • Thumper: Token Breeder

    I like the way the first paragraph conflates religion with Christianity. Because it’s the only one that matters, obv.

    Also, “disagreeing with Hobby Lobby makes you the antichrist”. K.

  • anubisprime

    OP

    misrepresenting the facts to millions of viewers who may take what he says as gospel truth, it’s simply irresponsible

    So the likes of Schuller, Falwell, Warren, Barton etc etc…are by association pristine in their claims…

    Not only bent the needle but busted the glass on that irony meter….
