National Christian Group Launches Video Response To Controversial Saturday Night Live Skit
Asks NBC For Apology
Saturday Night Live went too far when it portrayed Jesus as a blood thirsty murderer. So says a national Christian group that’s so upset by what they saw that they have asked NBC for an apology and have launched a video taking the network to task.
“The Orthodox Christian Network is outraged by the DJesus Uncrossed Skit that was aired recently on Saturday Night Live”, said Father Christopher Metropulos, head of the Orthodox Christian Network (www.myocn.net). “While we realize that Saturday Night Live is a comedy show, we strongly believe that NBC has seriously crossed the line with material that is grossly offensive to Christians.”
According to Father Metropulos, “the skit was shockingly indecent and demonstrated a blatant disregard to the feelings of millions of Christians who would most obviously be sickened by the sacrilegious content of the material. This is especially difficult for Christians worldwide to witness as we prepare for the Resurrection of our Lord and Easter. Never have I seen such reckless irresponsibility from a national television network.”
JCPenny and Sears have already pulled their ads from Saturday Night Live in reaction to the controversy. The response video can be viewed at the following link: http://youtu.be/gIPMMn70dIA. For further information call Father Christopher Metropulos at (561) 251-0067.
