“Suck It, Jesus” Censored

I’m watching the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Kathy Griffin just received her award.

Here is the full speech that was aired:

Can you believe this [*bleep*]? I guess hell froze over. You know, a lot of people come up here and they thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn’t help me a bit. If it were up to him, Cesar Milan would be up here with his… dog now. So, all I can say is… this award is my God now!

That last line was edited.

She actually said, “So, all I can say is, ‘Suck it, Jesus.’ This award is my God now.”

The word “shit” was bleeped. But “Suck it, Jesus” was censored entirely.

Somehow, I just lost more respect for E!: Entertainment Television.

Here’s video of her speech, as seen through FOXNews:

FOXNews liked Lauren Green‘s piece, too. I know. I’m shocked as well.

    I thought it was a pretty funny comment. More poking fun at the superficiality of celebrity faith than at Jesus himself IMO.

    Since we knew they were going to censor it, that’s about the best we could hope for from a free speech perspective. Censoring “suck it” is roughly equivalent to bleeping profanity.

    Plus the funnier part is pointing out the absurdity of attributing things like this to Jesus in the first place and they left that part in.

    I am sorry, any news anchor that says, “Jesus did have something to do with Kathy winning this award” might as well hang up their shiny teeth and fake hair and go teach Creationism somewhere. I cannot believe how much I am offended by Fox News, day in and day out.

    Would “Suck it Zeus” be censored?

    me too

    Would “Suck it Zeus” be censored?

    it would if they thought enough people (Zeus followers) were going to protest. I’ve only met 2 Zeus followers

    I just lost more respect for E!: Entertainment Television.

    Hemant! You had some for them to begin with? Now I’m the one who’s shocked.

    Athiest? Have you ever seen something come from nothing. It can’t happen. Its really not hard to understand there is a God. You have to study and think for yourself.

  • Ryan

    Atheist like to think there is no God so they don’t have to be responsible for anything in their lives.

  • Ryan

    But they are going to be. They don’t have to believe it to make it true. I can say Japan doesnt’ exist because i haven’t seen it or been ther but it still exists.

  • Ryan

    But not your prayers? I guess the SSA believes you can go out and kill,steal,be a drug addict ,ETC. Why would it be wrong if there is no God? Because a man said so? Pretty Sad!!!
