This is the thirty-ninth installment in the Sacrilegious Humor series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a comedy bit that is irreverent towards religion, makes fun of religion, pokes fun at sincerely held religious beliefs, or challenges the firmly held religious beliefs of others, please email me the name of the bit or a link to it.
Today’s bit is Put the Bible Down, it Will Fuck You Up by Eddie Griffin.
Warning, many of the comedy bits in this series will contain profanity. You have been warned.
Oh, I never heard of Eddie Griffin before… I’m pretty clueless about comedians. But damn, that was funny. I don’t quite agree with his theology, but I did laugh pretty hard… Thanks, Bruce!
Ha! Now THAT is some funny right there!
That was hilarious. I really liked the part about cain and abels wives
Funny… he seems to believe in God but maybe that is more about not getting lynched than really believing. I prefer the the George Carlin straight-talk. He never pandered to woo-woo. Still, Eddie is funny alright, made me laugh.
Yeah, I came away thinking he believes in some sort of God too. Now, a God who loves comedy routines like this might be an a-ok God. 🙂
My God is probably pretty close to Eddie’s. After all, the God I still believe in is the same one who made (designed) the duck-billed platypus (apparently out of spare parts) and a multitude of reptiles and amphibians who change colors based on their environment. Either God has a wonderful sense of humor or is very fond of some of the mushrooms He created. Quite possibly both. The theological point I am most certain of is that as soon as I try to describe/define God, I’ve screwed it up. Any deity worthy of my worship must be so out of human experience as to be inexplicable, or only a tiny glimpse of Something almost unimaginable. He certainly is NOT the God preached in American Evangelical churches.
