If Margaret Cho Preached at a Church…

… I might actually attend on a weekly basis.

For those unaware, Margaret Cho‘s a Christian, gay-friendly comedian. Other Christians have been sending her angry emails lately for not backing Sarah Palin in the election.

So she responds to them.

(Umm… NSFW language below. Lots of NSFW language below.)

First of all — you fucking fake Christians — don’t fucking question my Christianity. I grew up in the church. My grandfather was a minister, who is with God now and talks to me in my dreams from God’s corner office. I am a former Sunday school teacher. I taught the Bible to children and showed them how to love God and invite him into their hearts. I believe in God — but I don’t fear him. God is my best friend. God is my ally. God is my boyfriend. God is my best fag. I am God’s fag hag cuz didn’t you know, God is a big fag. Serious bottom too. Butch in the streets, femme in the sheets. That is my God. God is my biggest fan. God gets me, dude.

Don’t fucking question my Christianity you fucking idiot assholes. If you continue to have a problem, then talk to God about it, not me, you fucking racist homophobic misogynist fake Christian shitheads. God thinks it is funny that I swear so much. He said I could use his name in vain or whatever. He just wants me to use it. He loves me. So fuck you. And I guess he loves you too. Even though you are fake Christian assholes. If you were truly Christians, you would let gays get married, and send them fucking presents from Bed Bath and Beyond!

If you truly believed in Jesus, you would try to be like him and love us, fags and dykes and feminists all. God bless you, even you. You fucking fuckers.

You fucking fuckers.

Also the subtitle to my next book.

    I can’t tell. Is she mad at these folks?

    Once again: 1st rule of comedy is BE FUNNY.

    Cho fails.

    Comedy is subjective.

    Cho wins.

    Thanks for sharing that. If she preached at a church I’d go and donate. :)

    You’re quite the funny today, Mr Friendly Atheist. I’m glad nobody came around the corner and asked me what I was laughing at just now.

    Margaret Cho used to be funny, back when she was on A&E’s Evening at the Improv and other such gigs where she couldn’t use foul language. Heck, I thought she even did a halfway decent job in her sitcom (considering that it was still a sitcom).

    At some point, though, she came down with Pryor’s Syndrome or something, rather like Eddie Murphy did. Either she ran out of funny things to say and decided that cursing endlessly would cover it so fewer people would notice (highly likely), or she found that getting shock laughs from cursing was much less hard work than writing actual humor (even more likely).

    The last thing I saw from her was the concert DVD Notorious C.H.O., and it was just dreadful; she seemed like an unholy love child of her funnier self and Roseanne Barr (with emphasis on the latter).

    I didn’t find it that funny, but I can certainly relate. She is yet another one of those people whom Sam Harris thinks couldn’t possibly exist, because she doesn’t fit the stereotype of What a Christian is Supposed To Be Like.

    Margaret Cho is more Christian than Pat Robertson could ever hope to be. Good on her.

  • ryot

    Oh that Cho. The great thing is the Christians can’t say God doesn’t speak to her because they would be using real logic, not Cristian Logic(tm). She doesn’t have to prove God’s speaking to her, they have to prove he isn’t.

    More ammunition for Christopher Hitchens

    It’s the ‘knight of the faith’ defence. i.e. “God himself told me so, so you can’t question it!”

    That’s why Protestants have so many denominations. They can basically tell each other “I’m doing it right” without much reproach.

    The only thing better than watching an atheist and a Christian face off is watching two Christians face off.

  • RockSalt

    you fucking racist homophobic misogynist fake Christian shitheads
    Go Cho!

    It’s good to see a True Christian (TM) in action.

    I maintain that there is no such thing as a True Christian.

  • Beowulff

    As funny as it is, and as much as I support her stance on gay rights, I am a bit disappointed that her response to “you’re not a good Christian” boils down to “Am too! You are the real bad Christian!”. I can only hope that was part of the joke.

  • geru

    That was awesome. Having a sense of humor about yourself is always a step towards being less of an ignorant nutjob fundamentalist, I would say.

  • Axegrrl

    Wow, I didn’t realize that Cho was a believer……

    she’s best friends with atheist icon and all-around mischief-maker Kathy Griffin!

    does….not….compute……

      Why’s that? Because you don’t believe a Christian and atheist can’t be friends? That sounds pretty ignorant. It’s all about tolerance and acceptance of another human being, despite differences. Happens all the time. I have atheist friends myself.

  • Brian E

    Looks to me like Margaret Cho is the same kind of Christian as Rev. Candace Chellew-Hodge – ignore or twist as much of the bible as necessary to get Christianity to fit your worldview.

    I just don’t understand what is the draw to Christianity anymore when you have to do that much tap-dancing around the difficult issues and the fundamentalists. Just let it go already! There’s better choices out there.

    Plus, she speaks as authoritatively about ‘knowing the mind of God’ as the ‘scary’ Christians do :( That position/attitude will always boggle my mind.

  • Marc

    I think the whole “I am a better Christian than you”-shtick is obviously some kind of “comedic” hyperbole. She seems to be the typical “God is love”, “I am spiritual” kind of believer.

    Why do I say that?
    In the piece Hemant quotes above there is a link to another blog post of hers in which she explicitly says:

    I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself a Christian anymore, because that would limit my connection with the Divine. Loving God is much like a successful long term relationship. You’ve got to try a lot of different things, be adventurous in order to keep things interesting.

    Not necessarily a position that I have much respect for on an intellectual level – but, while I largely agree with Sam Harris’ point about moderates/spiritual/vaguely transcendental types giving credence to the concept of unfounded beliefs, on a purely pragmatic level I have no problem with it.

  • Katie

    Christian Logic is the same class as Symbolic Logic, except if you answer any questions right you get sent to hell for blasphemy, and if you answer any of the questions wrong you get sent to hell for arrogance.

    I like Cho. I respect her and I’m thrilled to hear she’s a Christian. She loves people despite their lifestyles as it says is the Bible to do. Hate the sin, not the sinner. However, I disagree with her attitude on calling other Christians “fake”. We have no right to judge, that’s God’s job. We should help to enlighten folks, not put them down.
