Kathy Griffin and Jesus

Most people probably know by now that at the recent Emmy Awards ceremony, comedian Kathy Griffin publicly said:
"I guess hell froze over. A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this.
He had nothing to do with this. ... Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now,"
she said. (WorldNetDaily)

The really sad thing is the huge applause she received. Can you imagine the response if she had used a racial slur or said the name "Muhammad" rather than Jesus? Americans would rightly be outraged. But because she vomits her bigotry against Jesus and Christians, the crown applauds!

An actors group has started a petition which reads:
"It's time for Christians to stand up and say, "Enough is Enough!" The name of Jesus Christ should not be mocked, nor should those who love Him be slandered for their beliefs. It is time for people of faith around the country to stand firm against religious slander, bias, and bigotry of all types including Christianity."
If you'd like to take a stand against bigotry, please sign the petition.
