Singer/actor Pat Boone slams SNL for their recent “God is a Boob Man” skit meant to parody the Christian film God’s Not Dead 2.
The skit also appeared to poke fun at recent anti-LGBT legislation being passed under the moniker of “religious freedom.”
Nevertheless, the Blaze reports that Pat Boone slams SNL, calling the skit “outright sacrilege” and “diabolical.”
Watch the “sacrilegious and diabolical,” according to Pat Boone, SNL trailer below.
SNL star Vanessa Bayer plays a woman named Beth in the SNL skit. Beth is a “small time baker” who only “wishes to deny basic goods and services to gay people.”
Using the narrative of Christians being the most oppressed group in America, Beth must prove that God is as straight as they come, hence being a “boob man,” while being pressured to say that God is gay.
Twitter users, unlike Pat Boone, seemed to enjoy the sketch, however, including people who even enjoyed the actual film God’s Not Dead 2.
Boone, who plays Walter Wesley in the film, slams SNL, stating that the show would not run a skit spoofing Mohammad or Allah.
“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.”
Boone slams SNL while admitting that God does, in fact, have a sense of humor, but the SNL skit has crossed the line.
“God has a sense of humor. Why else would he invent the porcupine and the giraffe? 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.”
Pat Boone also slams SNL’s skit for being anti-Semitic for its “Jewish lawyer” jab. Boone slams SNL for basically being pure evil all around.
Boone knows that his comments will most likely fall on deaf ears as he slams SNL. Boone says that he is not expecting an apology from SNL producers, however, “they will answer to the one they defame, and there are consequences.”
The God’s Not Dead 2 plot is centered on Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart), a reserved Christian high school teacher. Grace, like Kim Davis, gets tangled in a fierce battle over separation of church and state regarding the history of Jesus Christ.
The official synopsis states in part, “High school history teacher Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart) comes under fire for answering a student’s (Hayley Orrantia) question about Jesus. When Grace refuses to apologize, the school board votes to suspend her and threatens to revoke her teaching certificate.”
Pat Boone slams SNL as the film, which he starred in, grossed nearly $17 million at the box office thus far. Boone slamming SNL also reflects conservative Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Erik Stanley.
He believes Boone’s beliefs are more commonplace than one would think, stating that “students and people of faith, teachers included, are silenced simply because of their religious beliefs” across the nation.
Hart, who plays Grace, says that she walked into the role knowing she’d be persecuted.
Do you think that Pat Boone was right to slam SNL for their “God’s A Boob Man” skit?
