Kathy Griffin's Emmy speech is still pissing Christians off two weeks after she made it. When Kathy won her award she said, "I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. So, all I can say is, 'suck it, Jesus.' This award is my god now."
The Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. felt so strongly about Kathy's speech that they dropped $90,000 of their own money to take out a full page spread in USA Today. The spread ran last Monday. It read:
"We at The Miracle Theater consider it an honor to stand for Jesus today. We may never win a national award. We may never be household names. We may never be seen in Hollywood. Although others may choose to use their national platform to slander our God, we are honored as professional entertainers to stand for Christ."
First of all, Pigeon Forge is a lovely town. A pancake house on every corner and Dollywood! What's not to love? Second of all, they should've used that $90,000 to throw themselves a 3-day long sex orgy, because they need to loosen up a bit! Disagree with her statement yes, but don't waste your money on it!
