Co-host Michael Che angered some viewers during the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards a line that seemed to mock Christians. The Saturday Night Live star’s comments came during a comedy set with his co-host Colin Jost, who is also on the cast of SNL.
The Emmy Awards began last night with a monologue from co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che. Che told the audience that his mother would not be watching the show. The reason: “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”Che continued: “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”
At the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC, they have a display of many burned Bibles. This is the book that, down through the centuries, has been burned more than any other. Ironically, that even happened sometimes at the hand of church officials. Now there are reports out of China of Bibles being burned.
