I've never watched this stupid liberals show. The fact that they will never mock "Mohammed,'the Praised One', the prophet of Islam and the founder of Mohammedanism" shows what liberal cowards they are.

Saturday Night Live” is known for pushing the limits, but the NBC spoof show may have gone too far with a recent skit that mocked Jesus.

The inflammatory Feb. 16 skit, inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s excessively violent “Django Unchained,” was titled “DJesus Uncrossed” and depicted a post-resurrection Jesus (played by host Christoph Waltz) slaughtering Roman soldiers with a sword.

“He’s risen from the dead,” the narrator announced.“And he’s preaching anything but forgiveness.”

The skit didn’t go over well with two of America’s oldest and largest retailers—JCPenney and Sears. Both stores decided to pull their advertising from “Saturday Night Live,” according to a press release issued Tuesday by the American Family Association (AFA), an organization which focuses on the social implications of television and media.

Good point. It is very easy to mock Christianity, but mock Islam and you live in constant danger or fear. I am no fan of preachers, but this is cowardly selectivism.
