What Do You Think Of This?

22 Feb

Sarah Silverman is a popular, funny and edgy comedian. She is well-known from late-night television, her own specials, and many TV spots.  Her show “The Sarah Silverman Program” runs on Logos TV — a cable channel marketed to the LGBT community.

Here is a promo for her show that runs on Logos:

I would love to hear your thoughts on this. As a Christian, the representation of Christians makes me unhappy. On the other hand, I fully understand how Christians have developed this reputation. 

What does it say about the current state of relationship between the LGBT unchurched community and the church?

What can you, as a follower of Jesus, do to help bridge the divide?

What can your church do?

I think these are important questions to wrestle with, whichever side of the theological divide you find yourself on.

THOUGHTS?

    <p>Many years ago, I read an article in Playboy (25th Anniversary Edition- reprint from an earlier edition) by a theologian that contextualized Jesus’s message in terms of a stand up comedian. The Eye of the Needle does exist and probably got folks laughing, etc.</p><p>Meanwhile, be kind to Bruce and his brethren a sisters. They too may change and realize that we are all equal here on earth and that the judges will be judged. Plus, as long as they don’t go out and get violent, it is easier to congregate the homophobes and racists and other bigots in small areas.</p>
