Baptist Pastor: Sarah Silverman Is a “God-Hating Whore” Who Must Die

Brother Adam Fannin, who runs the Stedfast Jacksonville Church in Florida, an Independent Fundamental Baptist church, wants you to know that he’s not a fan of comedian Sarah Silverman.

That’s because, in her 2005 stand-up comedy special “Jesus is Magic,” she made a joke about killing Jesus: “I hope the Jews did kill Christ! I’d do it again. I’d fucking do it again in a second.”

That’s what known in comedy circles as a “joke.”

Silverman’s whole persona at that time was someone who said offensive things because no one expected them to come out of her mouth. Her fans knew she didn’t genuinely mean any of it, and her comedy has by and large shifted away from that in the years since.

In any case, Fannin didn’t get the memo, because during a sermon in which he ranted against Jews, he cited Silverman’s joke — without calling it a joke — and said Silverman needed to die.

[Update: The video was removed, so I’ve uploaded a mirror here:]

… have you heard of this comedian, Sarah Silverman? You guys know what I’m talking about? She brags about it! “I’d do it again!” Listen, she is a witch. She is a jezebel. She is a God-hating whore of Zionism. I hope that God breaks her teeth out and she dies. She is a wicked person and she is, like, the perfect representation of religious Judaism… I pray that God would give her an untimely death, and it would be evident that it’s at the hand of God…

That’s… a lot of hate directed at someone who made a joke. He’s not saying her jokes will lead her to Hell in the afterlife. He’s calling for her death now.

The scary thing is that Fannin’s audience doesn’t care. They go right along with it, as do commenters on YouTube. Granted these people say the same awful things about LGBTQ people and atheists and (probably) Christians who only agree with 99% of their theology, but that doesn’t mean we should ignore the very real, very brainwashed people sitting in that room. Who knows what they’re capable of.

On a side note, did you see the image Fannin used as a still for his video? This is the original image of Silverman. Fannin must have blackened out some of her teeth and darkened the others. It’s just petty.
