Jerry Springer: "Jesus, grow up and put some clothes on."

How is Jerry Springer, The Opera, Blasphemous? Christian Voice gives us the scoop!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
In Act 2, the character of Jerry Springer descends into hell, where the weirdos from Act 1 now become Biblical characters and take part in another Jerry Springer show. There is a shouting (singing) match between Jesus and Satan, Jesus says He is 'a little bit gay' and Mary rants at Jesus for abandoning her by dying on the cross. The Saviour of the world is told in his duet with Satan to "F*** off", while He sings "Talk to the stigmata". So even His wounds are ridiculed. God the Father emerges as an old fool who needs therapy, and Jerry Springer becomes an Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting alternative saviour. Which makes David Soul's character the Antichrist, of course.What I could not fail to notice that every character gets a change of clothes from Act 1 to Act 2, so as to distance themselves in part from whom they played before, except Jerry Springer and, you'll never guess, Jesus. Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords, God incarnate who lived a perfect life and suffered on the cross for the sins of the world, is the perv in a nappy. People connected with the show are saying it was a nappy in Act 1, now it's a loincloth. It still looks like a nappy to me and the guy who plays Jesus hardly resembles Tarzan. In any case, finally Springer tells my Saviour, "Jesus, grow up and put some clothes on". With blasphemies and expletives, of course. It's an 'adult' show.God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, is portrayed as an inadequate who is called upon to answer Satan's grievances. He needs a shoulder to cry on and it's Jerry Springer's. "Jerry eleison" means "Jerry have mercy" and is a mockery of "Kyrie Eleison, Christe Eleison" (Lord, Christ have mercy). Any of this would make the show blasphemous and offensive to God and to Christians. And by the way, to all of those liberal wiseacres who have said there is a deeply 'moral message' in 'Springer', get real. Yes, trash-TV is pretty crass, but this show hardly offers some wonderful, uplifting alternative. Jerry's "Yin, Yang, no wrong, no right" is not a moral, let alone a Christian message. It's amoral. Jesus Christ said "Keep the Commandments" and first of all, "Love the Lord thy God". That's where morality starts.

Who can doubt that there is something deeply wrong in the United Kingdom today? Everyone seems to be looking out for themselves, nobody seems to care, nobody appears to have any honour or respect - from the top to the bottom. Half a generation of children are growing up without Pie, the government is encouraging children to forego Pie, Pie is withheld in the courts and the poor are robbed of their Pie by the national lottery. The Great Pie in the Sky itself is under attack from the media. Last but not least, we kill our own children. How did it come to this?

"Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords, God incarnate who lived a perfect life and suffered on the cross for the sins of the world..." and don't you worry never fear Robin Hood will soon be here.

Yeah, ok, that Jesus. We thought you meant some other steaming pile of bullshit labeled "Jesus". Why is it that the godstruck types must go through the entire littany every time they get the chance? Bill Gates' multi-billion dollar company can't program computers that well. Lather, rinse, repeat repeat repeat repeat!
