‘God Is Gay’: Blasphemous Saturday Night Live Skit Mocks Bakeries That Decline Same-Sex ‘Weddings’

SNL-compressedA blasphemous skit mocking bakeries that decline forms of participation in same-sex “weddings” aired on Saturday Night Live this past weekend, portraying two homosexual men taking a baker to court to force her to say that “God is gay.”

The segment, entitled “God Is a B**b Man,” features comedienne Vanessa Bayer, who plays a small town baker named Beth Walsh.

In the movie trailer parody of the “God’s Not Dead” films, a man enters Walsh’s bakery and requests a wedding cake.

“Of course,” Walsh replies. “Where’s the lucky bride?”

“He’s right here,” the man responds as his male partner approaches. “Now make the cake.”

“They wanted her to spit the face of God,” the announcer declares, as the man demands to a frustrated Walsh, “I said make the cake!”

As she states that she can’t go through with it, the man calls out, “You’ll be hearing from our Jewish lawyer.”

When Walsh appears in front of the attorney, she is told to confess that God is a homosexual.

“My clients just need you to say three simple words,” the attorney states.

“God is gay,” the man who had ordered the cake declares.

“But He’s not gay,” Walsh answers. “God is as straight as they come.”

“Then I guess we’ll be seeing you in court,” the attorney replies.

Walsh then appears to court to “prove once and for all that God is straight,” making sexual gestures before those gathered and declaring, “If God is gay, then why aren’t there any gay priests?”

A mock crowd stands outside of the court in support of Walsh, holding signs such as “God just needs to find the right woman” and “God is a ladies man.”

“Miss Walsh, you are on thin ice,” the judge angrily states. “You know God is gay. Just admit it!”

“No,” Walsh firmly replies.

The trailer spoof then shows Walsh interrupting her governor’s meeting on state crises to request help as she “wants to deny basic goods and services to gay people.” The governor then clears the room, declaring that her issue takes priority.

When she is given her last chance in court to declare that “God is gay,” Walsh stands up and blurts out, “God is a b**b man!”

The YouTube posting of the skit has now gone viral, generating nearly three million views in just three days.

Viewer reaction has been mixed, with much profanity unleashed from both sides.

“This is coming from a faithful Christian. I [expletive] love it. God bless you SNL,” one commented.

“I just want to say I’m Christian … and as much as I try to find this bad, I just can’t! Its so hilarious!” another wrote.

“In the last days there would be scoffers!” one said, alluding to Scripture. “When all stand before the Master and give an account, there will be no scoffing that day!”

“Isn’t it interesting when people defend God and base things off of His word, everybody gets upset and offended and wants to fight or go against it, but when someone makes fun of Christianity and mocks God, people love it get a rise and laugh?” another asked.

“Let me see you do a parody video like this about Muhammad and his 9 year old bride,” one viewer remarked.

    The reason behind this and similar presentations is that Jews hate Christianity and have for 2000 years since they crucified Christ. What else would you expect from the Synagogue of Satan?

      Sounds to me like you more often listen to propaganda then study your history. As to who crucified the Messiah ? It was everyone who ever commits a transgression . You nailed Him to the cross yourself, it was you who needed redemption. I nailed Him there also. As for the Jews… They Sir were blinded for your sake but one day the scales will fall from their eyes and they will return to their Messiah. God has never turned away a repentant heart. The bible says much , history reveals much… maybe you should read, study and pray more and watch propaganda less.

      • sorleyboy

        I accept my share of the blame; however, I have been forgiven my sins. I have turned to the Lord. Those who killed Him 2000 years ago have yet to embrace him and they never will simply because they are not the true Jacob/Israel. I also understand from Paul in Romans that God’s people were blinded for the Gentiles’ sake and that they will one day be grafted back into the tree. Though you and I, as sons of Adam, bear our share of the guilt, so do those who were immediately responsible for His death and whose blood they called down upon their own heads, generation after generation. I read and study the Bible and history every day and try and stay away from “propaganda.” And speaking of “propaganda,” who is in the best position to spew it constantly and create legions of misinformed Christian Zionists?

        • hytre64

          Perhaps you are ignorant that the Jewish people of that time had lost the right for the Sanhedrin to exercise capital punishment. A Roman ruler ordered him flogged. A Roman ruler ordered him crucified. Roman soldiers whipped him. Roman soldiers gave him the cross-piece to carry. Roman soldiers drove him through the streets on the way to Golgotha. Roman soldiers stripped him and cast lots for his clothing. Roman soldiers nailed His hands and feet to the cross. A Roman soldier pierced His side with a spear. A Roman ruler gave His body to Joseph of Arimathea.

          Yes, the Sanhedrin handed Him over to Rome, but Rome handed down the death penalty and carried it out.

          Are we then going to persecute the Romans?

          God has not forsaken His Chosen People. His choices are without repentance.

          • sorleyboy

            No, I’m aware of the limitations that had been place on the Sanhedrin. But saying that the Romans were responsible for the death of Christ is like saying that the man who throws the switch on the electric chair is responsible for the death of a criminal. You well know that Pilate tried several times to convince the Jewish leaders that Christ did not deserve to die and each time he was rejected. And too, I understand from His Word that God will never forsake his people; perhaps those who have refused to repent for some 2000 years just might not be that people, but imposters who are seeking to regain a lost birthright through guile and deception.

          • hytre64

            End just when, pray tell, did the Edomite people “replace” the Jewish? Was it during the Babylonian Captivity? During the Bar Kokhba revolt? When Rome Destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD? During the Diaspora?

            What then, happened to the “Real Jews”? Did they forget their heritage? Did they mysteriously become an Anglo-Saxon tribe? Are they Amerinds? Seriously, in the Middle East, there were families of Jews who have lived in the same community for over 2000 years.

            As for the “Edomites”; ever since the Diaspora began in 70 AD, the Jewish people have been foreigners in every land where they have gone. They have been put down, trampled upon, persecuted, and reviled for being Jewish. What sort of people would put up with that for 2000 years based on a LIE? It wouldn’t happen.

          • sorleyboy

            The ten tribes know as “Israel” were dispersed from Palestine in the 8th century BC during the Assyrian Captivity. According the Scripture and historical and archaeological sources, these tribes migrated north by northeast into the Black/Caspian Sea areas whence many of them turned westward and eventually made their way into Europe. Many of these “lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt, 15:24) indeed did eventually lose their identity. Those of Judah who returned from the later Babylonian Captivity were only some 50,000 or so; much of Palestine after their having been gone for 70 years was inhabited by mongrels who were Jews mixed with other local peoples, including the Edomites. It is obvious why a small remnant of the true House of Judah (who were Judahites not “Jews”) had to return to this area: so that prophecy regarding Christ would occur.

            In his day, Christ knew with whom he was dealing. See John 8:44. And he knew who would put him to death (a topic you seem to have forgotten to mention in your last post).

            As for “Jews” (whom I prefer to call Esau/Edomites), why do you think they’ve been kicked out of virtually every country in which they have lived (sometimes multiple times). After a while, it becomes obviously that it is not “they” who are at fault but “you.”

            In short, what the Bible tells us is a story. A great cosmic drama, if you will. God has a people, from Adam, to Noah, to Abraham, to David, to Christ. And he has always appointed Satan a people as well. The great break in the drama comes with Jacob/Israel and Esau–one he says he loves, the other he hates. From that time hence, Esau-Edom has been at war with God and his annointed, as well as his Church. Esau-Edom wants his squandered birthright back and will do anything, including masquerading as the Chosen People, to get it. Unfortunately for the Church at the present moment, Esau-Edom’s ploy is working.

  • boarderthom

    Both sides can win in this “culture war” if the intolerant bakers would simply tell their gay customers that they will be making an extra-large donation to their church from the profit from the cake. That way the bakers can use their church to absolve that evil gay money from those evil gays.

    • Peter Leh

      that would indeed work, legally.

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Why is the go to always “you wouldn’t do this to Muslims”.

    It’s almost as if you want the new slogan for Christianity to be “we’re not as bad as those guys”.

    Hardly a glowing assessment.

    • Susan M Khaury

      The point is not at all that Christians “aren’t as bad as….” anyone. The point is that the left, and society in general, persecutes us and gives the Muslims a pass, even though they also do not believe in homosexuality, and unlike us, they actually believe homosexuals should be executed! We love the sinner but hate the sin. Our position is balanced and theirs is not. Yet not a word against them. Why? You don’t dare.

      • Pollos Hermanos

        Oh please tell us how exactly you’re so persecuted.

        • gogo0

          you wont get a good answer, if any, but if you did it would be along the lines of ‘I’m being persecuted by being denied the right to persecute others! it’s so unfair!’
          fact is that no one is closing churches or stopping christians from worshipping. stopping christians from imposing their personal limitations and christian sharia law on everyone else, which is the ‘persecution’, is the same principle as stopping muslim sharia law from being imposed on America, which is perfectly acceptable to them. incredible hypocrisy

    The main gay guy is spot on in how gays are and can be. This just proves they want to force their abomination on everyone or else. Sure it was a skit, but a fairly good depiction of the mindset. A sad group for sure. I do disagree with one comment in the skit. We shouldn’t deny services to gay individuals, just gay couples.

    • Tangent002

      This is a caricature of what homophobes believe all homosexuals to be like. It was the same with the atheist professor in ‘God’s Not Dead’ – a straw man they had no problem beating up.

      • TheBottomline4This

        No, it was a pretty good depiction of most of them. Not all, there are some level headed ones who just want to live their lives and not force others to agree or else.

          • Tangent002

            What do you mean by ‘agree with’ homosexuality?

            I expect business owners to treat all customers equally.

          • TheBottomline4This

            An individual customer should be treated equally. But when it comes to a gay union event then that is a different story. Why should someone who has always serviced straight couple events be forced to service same sex events?
            They had chosen to do straight couple events, but are not being given the choice in same sex events. Why do you think they should be forced to do something they don’t agree with?
            Why would anyone want to go to someone who doesn’t support their event?
            Oh wait, it’s not really about the cake, the pictures, the access to a venue…because if it were truly only about the cake, the picture, the venue…if they were told we don’t service same sex events, then they would simply go elsewhere, but that’s not what this is all about.
            It’s about hiding behind the “you never did these same sex events before, but you’re going to now or else”.
            Even though they have other places they can go to that would welcome them, they want to bully the issue through.
            Do you really think those who are forced to do something they don’t want to come to agree?? No. It’s like a rapist saying that a woman who he forces himself on must enjoy it. SMH.

          • Tangent002

            They are not ‘doing an event’, they are selling a cake. The cake is actually not for the ceremony at all, it is for the reception afterwards. But that is beside the point. I can go to a bakery right now and buy a wedding cake and eat it all by myself. The cake does not ‘approve’ anything, it does not ‘sanctify’ anything, it is a pretty bit of dessert.

          • TheBottomline4This

            If a gay individual wants to buy a cake, good for that person and they usually have gotten the cake…but when they make it a cake order for an event and the baker says they don’t do gay events…then the rest is what I said above.

          • Tangent002

            Which is discrimination.

          • TheBottomline4This

            You discriminate everyday, we all do. We all make a distinction in favor of or against a person or thing. My neighbor smokes, I can’t stand the smell of cig smoke, so I choose not to go into the person’s home, but I will chat with them outside. I like my neighbor, but I don’t like their cig smoke. Am I discriminating? Yes. We all discriminate, it doesn’t mean we hate or wish ill to anyone.

            Well, we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one. Thank you for being able to carry on a decent chat. Some can be pretty nasty and I just let them be in their nastiness.

          • Tangent002

            Thank you for the civil exchange as well. It’s a sticky issue and I do find myself divided at times. I would be okay with accommodation for small businesses run by people with closely-held religious beliefs, but only if there were comparable businesses within a reasonable distance.

            I think a reasonable compromise would be to allow closely-held businesses to spin off the artistic portions of their operations into a sort of independent contractor that allows them to pick-and-choose commissions, much like visual artists do.

          • Oboehner

            It would then have to cover every ideology, opinion, hobby, heck it would even have to cover those who like to discriminate.

          • Tangent002

            Ideally, no business could discriminate against anyone based on who they were, what they believed in, where they came from, how they tie their shoes, etc.

            Businesses offer a product or service available for sale to anyone who has the means to pay for it.

          • Oboehner

            So McDonalds couldn’t discriminate against a nudist letting ‘er all hang out?

          • Tangent002

            Sure they can. Public nudity is illegal in most places. They could not discriminate against a fully clothed nudist.

          • Oboehner

            No, that would be discrimination, nudists have the same rights as homos – nudists don’t like clothing, like gays don’t like the opposite sex. Forcing one to change is discrimination.

            You do realize that most civil rights cases had noting to do with ‘basic human necessities’. Everyone had a place to eat, everyone had a water fountain, everyone had a place on the bus. The Civil Rights act was about more than ‘human necessities’ it was about ‘human dignity’.

            “There is nothing wrong with interracial couples.”

            You realize that’s merely your opinion. A few decades ago a great many people felt there was something wrong with interracial couples.

          • Tangent002

            People who follow the Christian Identity faith still have a problem with interracial couples.

            While I would like to think we, as a society, have moved past the need for anti-discrimination laws and the market would take care of it, I doubt that is actually the case.

          • TheBottomline4This

            I’m a Christian and I have never had a problem with interracial relationships. All skin colors are beautiful.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Most people don’t have a problem with skin color. It’s certain behaviors they have a problem with, such as the behavior of race-mixing.

          • Tangent002

            I was referring to a specific sect, Christian Identity, not people who identify as Christian. Sorry if that was not clear.

          • Oboehner

            What about those who identify as trolls?

          • Tangent002

            What about them?

          • TheBottomline4This

            You are born with your skin color. I hope you are fine with interracial relationships.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Who said anything about skin color? You are not born an interracial couple.

          • TheBottomline4This

            What does interracial mean to you??

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Are you a business that advertises that you will, for a certain fee, go into people’s homes to chat?

          • TheBottomline4This

            If you want to have that much control over a business, then any new businesses that choose to open from now on should have to sign a paper that they will service everyone whether they agree with them or not.
            But since that isn’t a requirement for those who are already are in business right now, they should be left alone instead of forced.

          • Tangent002

            You sign such an agreement when you license your business. All businesses agree to abide by the current laws of the state, not the conditions under which they went into business. Grandfather laws protect one from being prosecuted for activities before a law went into effect, but you still must abide by the current law.

          • Tangent002

            Actually, you have the right to boot homosexuals off your property if you so desire, and you don’t have to answer to anyone. Businesses of public accommodation are a different matter. Since they are licensed by the state, they must obey rules that do not apply to you in your household. For example, your restaurant cannot leave mayonnaise out on the counter for days at a time, regardless of what your religion says about cleanliness.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Why don’t these Christians who object to same-sex marriage simply place signs in their shop windows that politely explain to the public that they will not service same-sex weddings?

          • TheBottomline4This

            I think there are some who are doing that 🙂

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            If that’s true, then more power to them. Let the free market decide.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Yep. Let the gay couple read the sign and move along to a different bakery, photographer, etc. But, they probably won’t do that because it’s not really about the cake, pics, etc.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            I suspect it’s not really about “sincerely-held religious beliefs” either.

          • TheBottomline4This

            If the person isn’t a Christian, then I would agree. There are people who don’t have anything to do with God, but don’t support homosexuality.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Plenty of Christian business owners serve gay couples.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Were they forced? If they chose to, on their own, then that is between them and God. Those who choose not to, should not be forced to.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Those who choose not to can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Very telling.

            Wrong. There are more than you’ll admit.

            “Those who choose not to can be counted on the fingers of one hand.”
            How do you know this??

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Media. But I asked you first.

          • Guest

            Of course its not, if it were the business would obey the law and sell to the customer.

          • hytre64

            Because then the *biggots* will target them with lawsuits, vandalism and death threats.

            If we lived in a truly civil society, your suggestion might stand a chance. As it is now, it would just be like putting a sign on their business saying, “PLEASE SUE ME”.

          • Guest

            Constitutionally each customer has a constitutional right to their own religious expression so the business has no right to require a customer to have or even act like they share the beliefs of anyone at the business – the business’s right to religious expression stops at the tip of the customer’s nose where their’s beings. That someone at the business thinks they themselves should only be in a multi-sex marriage and wedding has nothing to do with the customer which has a right to belief that people of any sexes can marry have have weddings in celebration.

            Civilly, sex is a recognized civil right in the majority of places in the United States and the business making public offer can’t use it as the reason they are rejecting the party responding to the invitation. Creeds, sexes, are off the table same as race, ethnicity, and any other civil rights the citizens have.

            If the business is selling a religious service they need to do so as a private club or non-profit corporation which can find the ‘right’ people to associate with first and then make the invitation to buy to just them.

            In a public offer the customer has a right to ignore any religious test the business might toss their way and still accept the offer of sale.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            I haven’t heard of any incidents where gay couples were having sex in so-called Christian-owned business establishments.

          • Oboehner

            Jared Kreft wasn’t having sex in the bakery either, but he still got arrested. Why is he any different from a homosexual?

          • TheBottomline4This

            Do you support gay sex?
            Do you support sex with animals?

          • Oboehner

            Irrelevant, why is he any different from a homosexual?

          • TheBottomline4This

            It’s not irrelevant. Are you ashamed to answer?

          • Oboehner

            After you, I asked first.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Ok. let’s see if you’ll answer…
            Why is he any different from a homosexual? Both sex acts are wrong, so no difference in that. I don’t think he should have been arrested though.
            Your answer…

          • Oboehner

            I also think they are both wrong, and if gays can do what they do, why can’t he?

          • TheBottomline4This

            Well I thought you were going to say one was right and the other was wrong, lol 🙂

          • Tangent002

            Non-human animals have no capacity for consent, so sex with them is considered abuse.

          • Oboehner

            What? I can’t hear you over my crunchy bacon, what’s that about consent?

          • Tangent002

            Even animals raised for slaughter have a modicum of protection from egregious abuse, though the law is far from perfect.

          • Oboehner

            Why is it abuse, are you speaking for the horse now or just being hypocritical?

          • Tangent002

            The legality of animal slaughter for food purposes does not cover sodomizing the animal and then hacking it slowly to death with a machete.

          • Oboehner

            Jared did no such hacking, and the horse didn’t object by running off implying some form of consent, so really what is the difference between him and gays?

          • Ronald Carter

            Hard to keep up when you keep using such bizarre comparisons. You’re comparing two consenting adult human beings with horse sex and Colonel Sanders. Why don’t you show everyone that you can stick to the subject at hand without veering off into strange and incomprehensible tangents? Here, I will help you get back on track. Who is being hurt, abused, or otherwise damaged in an act of consensual adult sex, whether gay or straight? Keeping in mind that you can’t single out a disease for homosexuals that doesn’t also apply to straights.

          • Oboehner

            Who is being hurt by two heroin addicts sharing a needle?

          • Ronald Carter

            They’re doing something unhealthy as well as illegal. Homosexuality is neither of those. Bad comparison fail #574.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Yum Bacon!! Don’t distract 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            The issue is cruelty and abuse, not veganism.

          • Oboehner

            Bacon is vegan now?

          • Ronald Carter

            Obtuse as always. The issue is cruelty and abuse, not veganism/carnivorism.

          • Ronald Carter

            Once again: you do not understand consent. Jared abused a child. A minor. One who cannot legally consent. Two consenting adults can do all manner of things that hurt no one but which you consider icky. Just like you are free to adhere to a talibanesque faith which believes in oppressing people which we consider disgusting. You have the right to be disgusting as long as you don’t hurt innocents who don’t or can’t consent. Get it now?

          • Oboehner

            Once again: while you eat a cheeseburger tell me more about that consent nonsense.

          • Ronald Carter

            Once again: while you make ridiculous comparisons tell me why anyone should listen to you.

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Depends. Was he having sex with a stallion or a mare?

          • Oboehner

            That matters how?

          • Gott Mit Uns!

            Ironic that you would ask that.

          • Oboehner

            I’ve heard of mind over matter, but that’s a bit of a stretch.

          • Tangent002

            Could you choose to be attracted to a member of your own gender?

          • Tangent002

            Because bestiality is illegal and homosexuality is not?

          • Oboehner

            Not what I asked, why is he any different from a homosexual?

          • Tangent002

            Because he’s a rapist.

          • Oboehner

            How?

          • Tangent002

            He engaged in sex with an animal without explicit consent.

          • Oboehner

            Animals have to give consent? That’s not what Col. Sanders says, try again.

          • Tangent002

            There is a different legal standard for animals raised for slaughter. Those laws do not permit having sex with a chicken before it is killed. If you see that as hypocritical, so be it. The law refers to the intentional infliction of cruelty.

          • Oboehner

            Speaking for chickens now? You didn’t answer the question, what is the difference between gays and Jared beside some misguided legality?

          • Tangent002

            If you believe sex with non-human animals should be legal, by all means lobby for that right, just as homosexuals did.

          • Oboehner

            That’s not the point, but those who push the gay perversion always dance around that one.

          • Oboehner

            Stumped or what?

          • John N

            You do realize, Oboehber, most animal abusers do identify themselves as’heterosexuals, right? Most of them are farmers or living near farms.

            So I ask, why is an animal abuser any different from you – presuming you do identify as a heterosexual?

          • Ronald Carter

            Oboehner doesn’t understand consent. Recently he said that gay sex was an act of “mutual abuse”.

          • Oboehner

            Save the BS and simply answer the question.

          • John N

            I did answer your question. It seems you did not like my answer.

          • Guest

            Or a heterosexual?

          • Oboehner

            Or whatever, why does Jared get arrested and sodomites don’t?

          • Guest

            Because it’s illegal in most places to have sex with another species and it’s not illegal to have sex with another human being?

            that’s kind of obvious, right?

          • Oboehner

            Legality is irrelevant to the basic point, gays are supposed to be “born that way” and accepted without question, yet other forms of perversion are deemed illegal or whatever, sounds like just another case of the exact same discrimination the gays are always crying about.

          • Guest

            There’s nothing ‘perverse’ about being sexually attracted to adult men or women, that would make virtually everyone ‘perverse’.

  • Oshtur

    Underneath the derisive laughter there is the awareness that the LGBT “community” is its own worst enemy, that the men destroy each others’ lives by the thousands. I cannot imagine identifying with a “community” in which the members shamelessly and unapologetically infected each other with incurable diseases on a regular basis. When I walk through a cemetery and see tombstones with crosses or Bible verses, I know the people buried there were flawed human beings despite identifying as Christians. However, when I see tombstones with red ribbons on them (yeah, there are lots of those around), I have to wonder about the guy buried there – assuming it was his own choice to have that kind of tombstone, he’s saying, from the grave, “Proud to be gay,” but why? Proud to be part of a “community” that has for 30 years decimated its own population? People who love each other don’t behave that way.

    Christians have a lot to be ashamed of, but as of today, we are not destroying each others’ lives, so SNL and its snarky fans can laugh at us all they want to, we are not destroying anyone’s lives.

      “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
      If he is thirsty, give him a drink;

    Why r the Mainstream Media n Major Industries mostly centered in the Northeast n Northwest states of USA since the founding of America in 1776.?
    ……. Bc of their proximity to trading sea routes to Europe n Asia Pacific. So, naturally the North got richer n more influential that the distant n remote South, which the North used to their advantage to bully the poorer South into submission during the 1861 Civil War over the right of the “protesting” Southern states to secede from USA.
    …….The Civil War was not over slavery. If it was really over the evils of slavery, the North would not hv allowed discriminatory Jim Crow laws in the South from 1865 till the 1964.Civil Rights Act.

    So, it is no surprise that SNL of NBC, a media company based in liberal NY, likes to mock the God of conservative Christians of the South n defend the LGBTQs, Blacks, Hispanics/illegal immigrants, feminists/abortionists, unionized workers, the lazy n irresponsible poor, etc, to whom the power-crazy liberals of the North n West/Blue States pander for votes.

    • John N

      I can imagine that the idea of people being tortured in hell for eternity by your god, would really make you happy.

      I mean, after all the terrible things they did to you, like making funny movies mocking your all-powerfull god that is unable to speak for himself, eternal punishment would only be fair.

      • hytre64

        First – God already has spoken for Himself. He sent Moses & His prophets, and in the fullness of time, He even sent His own Son.

        Second – God so loved the world (that includes everyone in it, even the mockers) that He sent His Only Son, so that whoever believed in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) This means that the mockers will not be in Hell for making fun of Him, but for having rejected His offer to pay for their sins. He loved them enough to die for them, but it is up to them to choose either Eternal Life with Him, or Eternal Death in the Lake of Fire. Their Choice.

        • John N

          Right. He so loved the world that he sent his only son, who was also himself, as a human sacrifice to pay for the sins which we committed against him, who was also his son, and which we wouldn’t have committed if he had created us directly the right way. Sins which he could also simply forgive us, without any of this sacrificing of course.

          But the only thing he wants from us in return is to believe this incredible story.

          And of course you think it is a good and loving thing to let someone else take the blame for your mistakes, to sacrifice humans, and to punish people for thought crime with eternal torture.

    To be clear, nothing in the video is making fun of God, it’s making fun of modern-day Pharisees who prefer a self-righteous, self-aggrandizing, intolerant and hateful interpretation of His word over one based on love and humility.

    It’s also turning the tables on the makers of claptrap like the “God’s Not Dead” movies, whose depictions of atheists and other non-Christians are laughably cartoonish, and which are based not on reality but on reality but on delusions of Christian persecution, of the kind passed around in mass E-mail forwards.

    • Peter Leh

      the pharisees indeed see it as persecution. In general, anyone losing power over another view it as “persecution”

      • hytre64

        I don’t see the sketch as “persecution”. I see it as the ignorant mocking what they either do not understand (ie. having a personal relationship with the Living God), or that with which they disagree (ie. not being willing to “bend” your morals if you believe that certain actions are contrary to them).

        • Peter Leh

          I see the mocking of what needs to be mocked…. those who oppose equal protection of all americans.

    Fools. They and their fans may laugh and mock now, but the Lord God almighty will be laughing at them when their destruction falls upon them.
    ~Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
    But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
    When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
    For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
    They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
    Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
    For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.~ Proverbs 1:24-32

      Seriously?

      • hytre64

        Very Seriously.

        What do you really think happens when you knowingly choose to mock and denigrate your Creator? Do you think He just chuckles and says, “Oh those funny guys”, while people ridicule Him and the people who love Him and the price that His Son paid for their redemption? There will come a day of judgement for those who have chosen not to shelter themselves in Christ, and on that day their sins will be revealed and their judgement will swiftly come upon them.

        Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked [He will not allow Himself to be ridiculed, nor treated with contempt nor allow His precepts to be scornfully set aside]; for whatever a man sows, this and this only is what he will reap.

        • Ronald Carter

          No one’s mocking or denigrating God in this sketch. The people being mocked and denigrated are those who adhere to bigotries and do so in the name of their faith. And it’s not Christians being picked on, exactly, but the fundamentalist brand of Christian.

          • hytre64

            Sorry, but the phrase, “God is Gay” IS denigrating to God. Declaring that God’s word is not only incorrect, but so far wrong that Homosexuality is right and heterosexuality is wrong IS mocking God.

          • Ronald Carter

            Then I would suggest you fail to understand the humor as it’s being put forth. No gay person would believe that “God is gay” – the phrase is there only to push the buttons of anti-gay people like yourself, and judging by your reaction, it upset you exactly the way they hoped it would. Pushing people’s sensitivity buttons is the point of this sketch.

          • hytre64

            I would suggest that their attempt at humor has failed, and instead went into the land of grossly offensive.

            Saturday Night Live in a nutshell – offending people since 1975.

          • hytre64

            At least John Belushi as a Samurai was funny. I remember the sketch of him showing up at a birthday party as a Samurai and trying to cut the cake with his sword – cake went flying everywhere.

  • Josey

    SNL is a vulgar show in all regards.

  • Peter Leh

    If you change “gay” to “black” it is still funny and accurate. Whether in 1845,1964,or 2016.

    And god being a boob man would prove he is white. See? still funny

  • Gena B

    People who constantly reject God will get exactly what they deserve, and God will be completely fair and just in dealing with the guilty.

    Christ will have the last laugh.

  • Found One

    Some say god is black, some say god is white. There is no reason he cannot also be Gay and straight. Even Paul was all things to all men. 1 Corinthians 9:22

  • Found One

    I should think a truly loving god would be offended by being pigeon-holed as straight or non-sexual also. He obviously is all things. Everything he created is to be treasured. God is all. God is the World! Remember any of this?

    • hytre64

      God is NOT “all things”. One thing that God is not, is sinful. I believe that you are confusion Panentheism with the God of the Bible. God *created* all things, but is Himself uncreated. God did not *create* sin. That was Satan (and later Man) walking outside of the will of God.

  • Found One

    Shame on you for thinking it blasphemy to call god Gay. This shows more of your own problems with bigotry and hypocrisy than anything else.

    • hytre64

      Since God condemns homosexual conduct as sinful in both the Old and the New Testaments, has declared that marriage is between a man and a woman… God cannot sin – literally – it is against His nature. Therefore, to propose that “God is Gay” (ie. actively homosexual) is to say that God is a sinner – something He cannot be.

  • Roger Aak

    I don’t understand why some of you tend to believe that God will be happy to destroy the homosexuals. God lovs all people, but He doesn’t love their sins, He will judge their sins unless they repent.
    1 Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
    There is no eternal hell in the Bible, only sudden destruction.

    • hytre64

      Let’s see what Jesus has to say:

      Mt 18:6-9 – Jesus talks about it being better to be crippled than to be thrown into the eternal fire.

      Mt 25:46 “These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

      Mark 9:47-48 “If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.”

      Rev 14:9-11 “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.

      And then there is Paul:

      2 Thes 1:9 “These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power”

      Jude says:

      Jude 12-13 “These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.

      Seems pretty conclusive that there IS an eternal Hell, where people will be conscious in eternal torment. God does not desire that any should perish, but that all should come to Him. Men, though, have rejected Jesus and the Salvation He brings. Without Jesus, there is no Salvation, for there is no other name by which men must be saved.

      • Roger Aak

        Let me answer by forging a verse in the Bible. What is wrong?

        Mal 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be asbestos; and the day that cometh shall burn them forever, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

        Too bad we are made of asbestos.

        • hytre64

          You will need to look into the context of Malachi 4. When does this occur? Every commentary I have looked at refers to this as “The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord”. It is a day of Earthly judgement against those *living* who have knowingly chosen evil.

          If you look in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, you will see that the Day of the Lord comes before the time of the Great White Throne of Judgement.

          “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” – Rev 20:12-15

          This lake of Fire is the Eternal lake of fire that Jesus spoke of in the scripture that I referenced in my previous post. Notice that those previously killed/destroyed were resurrected for this judgement, so yes, they could have been utterly physically destroyed, only to be resurrected to face a judgement on their eternal fate.

          • Roger Aak

            So, when the lake of fire is the second DEATH, it is not death after all?
            The scene is the final judgement after the thousand years, when all wicked, even the dead, shall be sentenced to eternal destruction. Sodom was given the same judgement, and the whole city is today a thick layer of ash littered with millions of encapsulated sulfur balls (2 Pet 2:6).

          • hytre64

            Death can mean more than just the separation of the soul from the body. In this case, it is the eternal separation of the person from God.

          • Roger Aak

            What is soul according to Gen 2:7? A living soul is a living person. A dead person is not a soul. A dead person is not missing soul, but breath (ruwach/preuma).

          • hytre64

            Soul is Mind, will and emotion. These came to Adam at the same time as God breathed life into his body.

            Look at the story of Lazarus & the Rich Man. Their souls were separated from their bodies. Both were conscious after death, possessing thought, will and emotion.
