Radio host Glenn Beck on Tuesday lashed out at the Fox cartoon comedy series Family Guy for a recent episode about Jesus Christ trying to lose his virginity.
Sunday’s episode of Family Guy sparked outrage from conservative Christians after characters in the Griffin family met up with Jesus at the mall while shopping for Christmas presents, and realized that he was a virgin.
On his Tuesday radio show, Beck likened the Family Guy episode to America’s problems with race, income inequality and religious freedom.
According to Beck, people who thought that the show was brave for taking on religion had it all wrong.
“Let me explain something about bravery, it is not brave to do the things that the elite and the powerful agree with,” he insisted. “That’s not bravery!”
“You want to be brave, do this about Mohammed,” co-host Stu Burguiere quipped. “Do it about Allah.”
Beck argued that “Saturday Night Live is the biggest group of pussies” because the show’s rendition of President Barack Obama was a “wuss” performance
And Jesus Christ had “done more good on Earth” than any other person in history, the Mormon radio host said.
“Every great act, every great, truly great freeing act was inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ,” Beck asserted. “Why would we take down just that man? Why would we make him into a joke? Out of all of the people you can joke about, all of the things you can do?”
“Why not just put him up on the pillar again,” he added, referring to the Flagellation of Christ, which Christians believe he was subjected to in preparation for crucifixion.
“Why not just whip him and beat him?” Beck asked. “Why not just publicly humiliate him, why not just tear his clothing from him, spit on him, and when he asks for water, we give him vinegar?”
“I think you could argue this is worse,” Burguiere said.
“Because we know now,” Beck agreed. “Father forgive them, they know not what they do. We do. We do.”
