Pat Boone is sick to death of heterosexual White Christians being discriminated against, and he’s making sure his voice is heard!
Claiming discrimination? Check. Comparing his alleged oppression to Muslims? Double check and…yikes.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about the SNL parody (watch it here) of God’s Not Dead 2 (a movie with a trailer so bad we thought it was a parody when we first saw it) he unleashed a big ol’ bag of crazy that hit all the major evangelical Christian talking points:
“Something can be devilishly funny, but this skit is diabolical. God has only one real enemy — Satan. Satan ridicules faith, and they’re taking Satan’s side. They’re also ridiculing me and the film, telling impressionable young people not to see it because it’s ridiculous. Then they throw in that the lawyer is Jewish to make the Christian look even worse, but it’s just anti-Semitic.”
Pat, Pat…any 2016 movie that casts Melissa Joan Hart as the female lead is inherently ridiculous, but you’re not doing yourself any favors saying this:
“This skit was outright sacrilege. They know if they did this to Muslims they’d have to be put into the witness protection program. There’s nothing sacred at SNL — except maybe the words ‘Mohammad’ or ‘Allah.’ They’d never take those names in vain, but when they called God a ‘boob man,’ they took his name in vain.”
He then tells THR that believers in God “deserve an apology” and that the skit “went over the line.” Who knew evangelical Christians were so humorless? Oh…everyone.
You can watch the SNL skit below if you want to know what all the fuss is about. However, the real trailer for God’s Not Dead 2 is even funnier in an unintentionally campy kinda way.
Oh god I thought that man was dead and who even cares what he thinks about anything.
Me too. Thank you for bringing me up to date. I’d thought this fossil had long since been dead and buried. Surely it’s time his offspring got him into some sort of custodial care, though.
This man was a bore and a flash in the pan 60 years ago. He’s old enough to have seen Christ’s hanging himself. He was probably one of thosethat stole his clothes.
Poor butthurt Pat. I am always amused but the old “you wouldn’t do this to a Muslim” routine. First of all this is just a variation of the old argument used by all 6 years olds when caught doing something wrong – “mark did it and he didn’t get in trouble”. It is a logical fallacy. And secondly the fact is that regardless of what SNL says or does not say about Muslims, religious and other bigots have been talking nonsense about Muslims in the US quite openly and none of them had seen so worried they went into witness protection after doing so.
The fact is that this washed up old religious fanatic is still just able enough to shriek venom to the rest of the world. Soon he will be dead and then he will face the reality his fantasy belief in some sky pixie is exactly that.
I’ll give outraged Christians credit… at least they can be mad without killing anyone. Sorry not sorry, but it’s true. Hell, other Christians are laughing at the outraged ones with the rest of us.
how about a nice FUCK YOU to pat boone?
you know why the lions didnt eat the christians?
they were full of shit.
They should have posted Boone’s “Dick in a Box” photo with this article. Google it and you’ll see why it’s called that.
It isn’t photoshopped. The homophobic bastard really did pose for it in his college days.
This old once was but now passed gas went senile over twenty years ago. I was hoping the editors would have added a picture of this old fart when he went leather. He was on the 700 Club with that other old fart, Pat Robertson, when he suddenly decided to make a punk-style change feature a full leather outfit that looked more in line with Leather Night at the Eagle. It was said at the time (and I still believe it) that he did it to get out of his contract with the 700 Club. It worked. Even he could no longer take sitting next to and having to hear Rev. Robertson and his shit every day.
Do a google search of it and see for yourselves. I can’t find a youtube.com clip of his appearance on that award show but pictures of it exist for all to see. Yes, he sure as hell did do that.
I actually got more of a laugh out of the trailer than the SNL skit.
What’s more surprising is that Pat Boone’s Not Dead!!
What a weak god that it needs people to apologize to its followers. A real deity would have reversed time and said this skit displeases it to SNL.
Pat Boone used to be soooo good looking! I always thought he was a closet case. I grew up with him age-wise. I don’t know what happened to him but he is a religious extremist today and should be avoided at all costs! You’re right… WHY… are we even giving this fossil the time of day?!
That sketch first of all wasn’t funny.
Secondly I could care less what Pat Boone says and quite frankly he owes US an apology for the bs his religion and followers have perpetuated against US for years.
I love it when the right wing nuts keep trying to invent phony scenarios.
Gee Pat, you said that if SNL had said something about Muslims they would have to be put into witness protection.
Really? That’s funny because many many MANY politicians have come out saying the U.S. should ban Muslims, and multiple groups have gathered to “Protest” outside Mosques with guns and I don’t see ANY of them needing witness protection.
Oh, that’s right, what you said was a lie, but you just needed an excuse to cry and play the victim because because something somewhere didn’t get your seal of approval.
When people start defending magiciCal thinking then they need to sit down.when people start trying to censor media they need to have several seats. That Christians have resorted to passive aggression is terrible. They are running people off from their religion and Christianity more than any other is about recruiting more. That’s why they don’t like gays, abortion or birth control. Power in numbers and heteros breed.
Pat Boone was the poster boy for “a nice young man” in the late 50’s. He should have stayed in the 50’s.
Pat Boone made his living by taking black music and turning it around for white kids to listen to.
Hey, Pat, go eff yourself.
I just read the fox news version of the story and he said the snl skit is insulting to homosexuals. HOMOSEXUALS. Then the word homosexual is used over and over again (an insult these days). Haven’t seen the movie but isn’t it about an evangelical debating an atheist on whether god is dead. And the Christian wins. How do you prove a magical being that nobody sees, hears, etc.? I admire people of faith but wish they would stop with the bullying of gay people then claim they’re the ones being bullied.
Pat Boone may have as many sacred cows as he pleases, we are compelled to respect non of them. The arrogance of the evangelical mind is deeply disturbng… the notion it might be incumbant upon them to prove that their deity is anything other than their imaginary friend before cramming him down throats does not seem to occur nor the fact the omnipotent author of the universe is one imagines, quite capable of incinerating anyone who takes his name in vain on the spot and does not need christians to do his dirty work for him.
@Juanjo: I’m with you about corny, tired Pat Boone, who wasn’t even relevant when he was copying black music for white consumption in the 1950s. But you know, “butthurt” is homophobic, right, since it derides that fact that a man or woman would be sore after being an anal bottom. Just pointing that out.
wait…this guy is still alive? I think that’s a picture of Stan Lee.
” Secondly I could care less what Pat Boone says and quite frankly he owes US an apology for the bs his religion and followers have perpetuated against US for years. ”
I’d say that’s a good comment.
@robho3: no, he’s not dead. That’s his career you were thinking of.
Oh yes it’s time to start censoring the media (again). Let’s see, did that work the last time it was tried? Poor Pat. You and your other friend (Pat Robertson) can use the public media to spew HATE against Homosexuals but if a skit is portrayed on SNL it needs to be censored and the authors of such need to apologize? See a problem with your hypocracy there? Oh fuck probably not. Pat, you and Pat need to go back under the rock and preach your bullshit to the “lowbrows” who will have you. Have a nice life.
