Why are SNL writers (not to mention South Park writers, Simpsons writers, Family Guy writers, etc.) so comfortable portraying Jesus in any way they think might get a laugh? It's simple. Christians don't go on killing sprees when people mock our beliefs.
But suppose SNL were to broadcast a trailer called "Inglourious Basterds II: Remember Khaybar," in which a group of Jews brutally slaughter Muhammad and his companions for the attack on the Jewish settlement at Khaybar. (Alternatively, the film could be about revenge over the massacre of 600-900 Jews in Medina.) Can anyone seriously doubt that the resulting international bloodbath would be . . . well . . . more graphic than a Quentin Tarantino film?
Here's the great irony. The lovely folks over at NBC (and just about every other channel) constantly bombard us with the absurd notion that Islam is just like every other religion. Yet they show by their actions that they don't really believe this, and that they understand perfectly well that Islam is a violent and oppressive ideology.
Perhaps we should take this "Djesus Uncrossed" trailer as a backhanded compliment to Christianity: "We like making fun of you Christians because we know that you're as peaceful as we keep pretending Muslims are."
I guess the only thing we can do now is sit back and wait for Obama, Hillary, and others to demonstrate their consistency by publicly condemning "Djesus Uncrossed," just like they publicly condemned the Muhammad spoof "Innocence of Muslims." Perhaps the Obama Administration will even hunt down SNL writers and have them arrested, just as Sam Bacile was hunted down and arrested.
Or, will politicians and the media treat "Djesus Uncrossed" as a matter of free speech, rather than as a matter of national security? Why, then, treat videos or cartoons about Muhammad any differently, especially when all religions are supposedly the same?
