Peeing on Jesus is funny and edgy
In a recent HBO Curb Your Enthusiasm episode, the protagonist, Larry David, urinates on a picture of Jesus. This has sparked some controversy amongst some Christians. HBO executives responded with the following statement:
Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire. Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious.
One wonders if HBO would consider it to be “humorous” and “playful” if a Christian comedian should piss on a picture of Mohammed or the Star of David?
