NEW YORK – Did Saturday Night Live go too far?
After a gory skit involving the resurrection of Jesus aired Saturday night, at least one religious group thinks so.
“This past weekend, NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ aired an extremely violent and gory segment mocking Jesus Christ… just for laughs. And, it’s available now online thanks to Kmart, Sears and J.C.Penney,” said the American Family Association.
“The segment is a fake movie trailer depicting a Quentin Tarantino-style Jesus returning to get revenge. It’s called, ‘Djesus Uncrossed.’ Thanks to the funding by mainstream advertisers, NBC is painting Jesus as a revengeful murderer bent on killing the Romans who crucified Him.”
Watch the video and judge for yourself if the skit was out of bounds.
