The audience sprung into a fury and assaulted Wilmore after the broadcast, he was then executed by being beheaded and a video of the execution was promptly sent to The White House, demanding that mockery of Jesus be silenced. President Obama then issued a statement shortly after saying; "The future does not belong to those who slander the Christian Messiah."...
Okay, I'll knock off the nonsense because none of your are buying this, RIGHT?! Larry Wilmore is still alive and President Obama issued no such statement (nor do I want him to issue such a statement as that is not his role). I apologize for the Click-Bait title of this article but I felt it necessary to display a very stark contrast in our society and that contrast is between the perception of Christians & the perception of Muslims. When I posted an article dealing with a similar topic I was met with amusement & mockery when one commentor laughed that I said in the article that "Christians aren't known for slaughter people in droves when we get offended." and said it was the best joke he had ever heard. Setting that aside, allow me to display MORE evidence if you're not convinced that Christians aren't the ones you should be afraid of!
Christianity is mocked on a consistent bases, just a short list of the shows that openly mock Jesus & God and a list of their offenses:
"Family Guy": Displays Jesus as a raging alcoholic hippie who had sex with The Olsen Twins was dating Carrie Underwood and blamed The Jews for all the wars (al a, Mel Gibson). God in "Family Guy" is presented as being Autistic.
|Jesus behind bars in "Family Guy"|
|God in "Family Guy"|
"Black Jesus": Displays Jesus as a foul-mouthed African American man living in the ghetto.
"South Park": Displays Jesus as a talk show host who can only perform miracles when no one's looking at him. Displayed him getting beat up by Satan in a boxing match and displayed God as some kind of elephant, monkey, frog creature that eats flies and is a self-described Buddhist. Matt Stone & Trey Parker are also known for the off-broadway play "The Book Of Mormon".

Dave Foley: A stand up comedian, once said the following about Jesus during a stand-up comedy routine:
Sarah Silverman: A wanna-be stand up comedian now turned abortion and feminist shill, released an ad featuring her and Jesus:
Several other comedians have went on to mock Jesus & God, recently, Stephen Fry went on television and displayed his WOEFUL ignorance of Christianity (and I will deal with his outburst in another article later) where he said:
"I'd say, 'Bone cancer in children? What's that about? How dare you. How dare you create a world to which there is such misery that is not our fault. It’s not right, it’s utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?’ That’s what I would say."
Just to give a quick response to Mr. Fry, God didn't create a world with such misery...The Bible tells us that God made the world and it was GOOD, Genesis 1:31. However, because Adam didn't listen to God and didn't follow God's rules, SIN entered the world and Sin is a lot like a virus, IT EFFECTS EVERYTHING! And when I say everything, I quite literally mean EVERYTHING! Look at it this way, if I gave you a house plant and told you how to take care of it and you didn't follow my instructions and came back to me and complained about how the plant was dying, well you didn't take care of it the exact why I told you to and because you didn't the plant is dying. Yeah, God gave Adam and Eve specific instructions, they disobeyed and now there's a virus unleashed upon us all. And for Stephen to say it's not our fault...Stephen, you're openly disobeying God right now, aren't you? Therefore, you'd have done the EXACT same thing Adam & Eve did, wouldn't you? Irony much? That's just a quick reply, I'll go more in depth later. Side bar over.
Matt Stone & Trey Parker aren't running scared of Christian protesters who (wrongly, in my opinion) petition to have "South Park" removed from the airwaves. Granted, those Christian Protesters have gained ABSOLUTELY NO traction and NO media attention because "South Park" is still on the air and still poking fun at Jesus & God. Seth MacFarlane, a self described Atheist isn't running scared of offended Christians because of his portrayal of Jesus (MUCH worse than "South Park's" portrayal of Jesus, in my opinion...at least the Jesus in "South Park" can be counted on for good advice...). "Family Guy" is one of FOX's number one shows and is one of the few shows to rival "The Simpsons" in terms of popularity. Seth MacFarlane didn't suffer any massive media campaign against him or verbal reprimands from Politicians citing his actions as insensitive or racist (because there are, unfortunately some people who think Islam is a race of people and not an ideology).
Jim Parsons a.k.a Sheldon Cooper from "The Big Bang Theory" will be returning to broadway in a play titled "An Act Of God" based on the humor book titled "The Last Testament: A Memoir By God" where Parsons will be playing the titular role. Parsons, being an openly gay man, hasn't been met with any massive protests from Christians holding signs saying "Fags Can't Be God!" (which is easy enough because you know us Christians hate us some gays, right?) and things of the like. Every article written about Parsons' return to broadway have been positive and supportive.
But yet, thanks to such NON-CHRISTIAN groups as The Westboro Baptist Church & The KKK, Christians are cited as being just as bad as Muslims in our extremism. However, there are no Christian suicide bombers who blow themselves up and I'm certain if asked, Matt Stone & Trey Parker will tell you they've gotten no serious threat from Christians. Meanwhile, not too long ago, in France the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo (akin to MAD Magazine here in America) was attacked after publishing a cartoon of Muhammad. This mirrors the attack of a Danish newspaper by Islamic terrorists after publishing...(well look at that) a cartoon of Muhammad.
And a few years ago, Barack Obama cited a Youtube video entitled "The Innocence of Muslims" as the cause of the 2012 Benghazi attack, which prompted President Obama to say; "The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam". Funny, I don't recall FOX or Paramount getting bombed or attacked due to their mockery of Christians, and despite the title of this article Larry Wilmore is very much alive and well, as are Matt Stone, Trey Parker, Seth MacFarlane, Dave Foley, Stephen Fry, Jim Parsons, Sarah Silverman, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, the list goes on and on of Atheists mocking Jesus and going on to live comfortably. And while most of them are self-described Atheist and have no belief in ANY God, they seem to hold The Christian God in the most contempt, after all no one's exactly mocking Krishna or Buddha (and yes, I understand Buddha isn't a God) or any of the other various Pagan or Wicca deities out there. Nope, just Jesus.
And woe be tied to he who raises an issue with such portrayals of Jesus and God as most will cite you as being overly sensitive, or being offended because you're actually afraid that the mockery is rooted in truth, butt-hurt (or much more vicious way in saving overly sensitive, to the extent of being petulant and whiny), and you'll be told to get over it or be forced to give a justification for the actions of The Spanish Inquisition, The KKK, The Westboro Baptist Church (and in some VERY ridiculous cases The Holocaust) and a few other Non-Christian groups that have unfortunately been labeled "Christian Terrorists". And upon failure to provide an adequate enough explanation for those atrocities, you'll be told that "Christians are just as bad as Muslims!"...despite the fact that The Spanish Inquisition & The KKK were acting on perverse understandings of The Bible and their actions cannot be justified by it and therefore are rejected by it...and not to mention neither are in full effect today. The Spanish Inquisition is over with, The KKK has dwindled down to a few members and aren't holding massive marches on Washington, and The Westboro Baptist Church have never fired bombed CBS for their showing of "Will & Grace" and never bombed theatres showing "Brokeback Mountain".
However, Muslims today are burning people alive (that just happened yesterday), and are beheading people on the regular bases and have exploded into global protests over cartoons and satirical portrayals of Muhammad. But don't take my word for it, you can ask the still breathing Larry Wilmore and everyone else I listed how much they fear for their lives due to the OVERWHELMING violence of Christian Terrorists and how terrified they are to portray an overweight, alcoholic, sex crazed, Jesus or a hideous elephant creature, autistic God...I am 100% certain they're all shaking in their boots.
