Pat Boone Calls Out SNL ‘God’s Not Dead 2’ Parody As Offensive To Christians, Jews, Gays, ‘Feeding Cynicism’

by The Global Dispatch  |  published on April 21, 2016

Pat Boone says Saturday Night Live parody skit about God’s Not Dead 2 is offensive to Christians, Jews and homosexuals, and thinks the long-running show is feeding cynicism in America.

“I think a general antipathy toward Christianity…they think it’s fair game, like Bill Maher, to just attack and ridicule and literally make fun in light of almost any kind of genuine faith,” Boone told FOX411. “But in this case it’s particularly scurrilous and irresponsible because they presented God’s Not Dead 2 as if we were dealing with homosexuality or in some way with Christian Judaism conflict and the film has nothing to do with any of that. They made it up totally because they literally wanted to back us (Christians) into a corner on the subject of homosexuality, and of course the film had nothing whatsoever to do with it.”

The SNL skit, titled “God is a Boob Man,” centers on a woman (baker, played by Vanessa Bayer) who is forced by a Jewish ACLU lawyer to declare that “God is gay” after refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding. “I want to deny basic goods and services to gay people,” she says later in the clip.

“If I were in the homosexual community, or if I were Jewish, I would be just as irate as being presented fallaciously and ridiculously as the militant homosexuals are in there parody because they are demanding things that would embarrass any responsible homosexual, and I know quite a few,” he said. “They would not like to be presented as being so idiotic as trying to prove in court that God is gay. That presents them in a horrible light and very bigoted light.”

Boone, 81, says he, like most Americans, was once a fan of “SNL,” now thinks the show just builds on the cynicism in society.

  • I Seigel

    SNL has done plenty of lampooning of vegans, Jews, gays, Europeans, blacks and conservatives over the years. The Pope and Christians, too. Maybe ol’ Pat here is just getting a bit sensitive and a bit more intolerant in his old age. Like many of us.

  • Too big and heavy

    It is the systematic Ruining of the Christian Faith. It is all Planned out, on purpose by they Useless Actors and the Like. Why do not they do a skit like that about Muhammad??.. Because their on that side, Evil. Read about Albert Pike, it’s all falling into place.

  • Larry J. Overfield

    We need to remember that as we get closer to Christ’s return there will be more attacks on Him and His people. Put on the full armor of God, and do not be afraid to wield the sword of the Spirit; that is the word of God.

  • Climax

    I am offended by what SNL did and I as a Christian demand an honest apology or maybe the Christian Terrorists will show up!

  • ShemSilber

    It looks to me like more of the “jackass formula” that has been going about as comedy for longer than I’ve been around, since I’m not 80 by a few years. That formula ridicules any legitimate authority figure, from Yahuwah Almighty on down. That’s the reason that they would protray Yahuwah as so-called gay (which has become the popular euphemism for sexually perverted), to ridicule such instruction as He gives us in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, forbidding men to have sexual relations with each other. And Paul even states that the effeminate and homosexuals are among those who will not be allowed into His Kingdom (per 1Corinthians 6:9-11), “…and such WERE some of you, but you are WASHED…” he says. In other words, some repented and turned from their homosexuality and to the Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) to be saved from it and all their sins, so that they could receive the free gift of everlasting life that the Master Yahushua died and rose again to give us. That’s how zealously He want to save us alive! Are we so ungrateful as to refuse the gift? Shame on us if we are!

    Those who refuse to humble themselves and to continue flaunting their sins will find themselves on the outside, sent away to die the second death, because death is the default when we reject the choice of life. Doesn’t it figure?

    “Therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live,” per Deuteronomy 30:19, in the Name of the Master Yahushua, omein!

  • Gale

    Thank that worthless scum in the white house.

    • ShemSilber

      Sure enough, he has his share of the blame on his very narrow shoulders, but the main culprit is his master, Allah, otherwise known as the satanic one, Azazel, who rebelled against his Creator and has been working ever since man has been on the earth to drag as many of us into his damnation, where he will soon be sent, into the fires of Gei-Hinnom that were made for him and his fellow rebels who were thrown out of the heavens, per Matthew 25:41. Soon this temporary age will be over and their sentence will be carried out.

      The Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) is able to help us through these hard times and into His everlasting Kingdom, if our trust is on Him and we hold fast to the end, omein!

      • bobnstuff

        Only two minor problems here. Obama is a Christian and Allah is based on the God of Abraham and Isaac. Islam is a much stricter religion and much more conservative faith. You can’t be a liberal Muslim.

        • ShemSilber

          That is not my perception at all. Obama has shown great favor to Islam rather than to any Christian belief. And Allah is an Arabic word for god, but he is a false god, the rebel whom we have called Lucifer in the KJV, whose demise is explained in Isaiah 14:12-20 and Ezekiel 28:11-19, whom the Master Yahushua saw fall from the heavens, per Luke 10:18. His time is short until he is sentenced to Gei-Hinnom, the Lake of Fire, at the power of the returning Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus), second to His Father and so assigned. He is our Creator and our Redeemer, and He will save us from ourselves, and from Islam and its master, the satanic one, omein.

          • bobnstuff

            I don’t think you really know all that much about Islam and you have been given a false path on it’s creation and where it fits into the Christian religion. You want so much to discount Islam that you would twist scripture to do it. I feel sorry for you, you are so busy worrying about what others do you haven’t figured out it’s how you live and how you treat others that counts. It’s not our job to judge and we don’t even have to understand others beliefs. We are to do one thing and that is to love each other. We are to show our love of God by serving our fellow man. You like the KJV of the Bible, it’s very pretty in the words but not the best translation. The only good thing is the words don’t matter if you open up your heart to Christ and the Holy Spirit.

          • cutterguy

            Do you know and believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior? The only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ?

          • bobnstuff

            Did you know that Jesus called on us to love one an other. It’s faith active in love that shows the true believers. I’m not a follower because of heaven, I will do my best to go there but it’s the peace of understanding here on earth that for right now is the greatest gift God has given me. It’s the perfect love of Christ that I try to copy. You must love God and your fellow man, that’s what Christ told us to do.

          • cutterguy

            I suggest you actually read the Bible rather than interpret it without knowing what it says.

          • bobnstuff

            I believe if you read the words of Christ
            Matthew 22: 36-40

            36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

            When Jesus speaks I listen.

          • I Seigel

            If Obama has shown great favor to Islam, why did he get a rather chilly reception in Saudi Arabia (Sunnis) yesterday? Why do the Iranians (Shiites) distrust him and the US? Exactly WHICH Muslims has he shown “great favor” to? Oh, you mean like going to a mosque to pray and to show solidarity with Muslim-Americans? That kind of “great favor”? Like he has gone to a synagogue and to churches to pray?

          • ShemSilber

            Mr. Seigel, just for example, the thousands of Syrian “refugees” that Pharaoh Obama is streaming into this country, to the point that Texas is seriously considering secession from the “Union” that doesn’t seem to be much of a union any more. There are a significant portion of those people who would just as soon take off your head and mine for the satanic cause of Islam.

            I praise the Almighty ha-Shem that He is soon sending Moshiach to evict the heathens from the Promised Land defined to Avraham avinu in Genesis 15:18-21 and to bring in hundreds of millions of the children of Israel from the four corners of the earth. In Jeremiah 16, it speaks of this coming Exodus that will dwarf the first one, and all the modern Pharaohs will be made to choose to let His people go, just as that one did a few thousand years ago.

            We will be back in the Promised Land after our long exile, which I declare to you in the Name of the Master Yahushua, who has been working on the restoration of the Malchut Yisrael Echad (Kingdom of United Israel) according to our Abba’s schedule, even since the foundation of this present age, for He knew the division was coming, omein.

            May we all be so blessed as to see it and see it soon, omein!

          • I Seigel

            First of all, I WISH that Texas would secede already. Aren’t you getting just a bit tired, too, of their incessant whining? They certainly TAKE lots of handouts from the Feds – military bases galore, NASA, huge highway funding, FEMA aid for floods, fires and drought – but they don’t ever have anything nice to say about the Feds or Obama. Oh well.

            Secondly, where all these “thousands” of refugees “streaming into this country”? I see that Obama has made allowances for them, but they’re trickling in, after lots of background checks and vetting. Show me where all these FEMA cities are filling up with Syrians and other Muslim refugees? Show me the long lines of them waiting to get in. Where is the “streaming”? Pictures, facts, actual news stories would be greatly appreciated. Please no conservative websites and pictures of crowds in other countries Photoshopped onto our borders or airports

    Pat is absolutely correct. SNL is a perverted liberal show that constantly get’s away with attacking people/whatever. They constantly violate the principals of their own PC police and get away with it because they are screwed up liberals. If I, a conservative, tried just half of the garbage they put out, the freaky pervert PC police would have me in jail. But, the perverted liberals hate Christians because the Bible, God’s Holy Word, condemns everything they do and think. But hey, I don’t watch garbage!!

    In Acts 20 we read that Paul spent three months in Greece, where he wrote the book of Romans. In the midst of such important ministry, however, “a plot was made against him…” (v. 3). Persecution will not cease so long as our message contains God’s Word that goes against the position of the persecutor. We are naïve or maybe even egotistical if we think what happened to Paul will not happen to us. We haven’t seen anything yet!

      Yes Bobstuff, evil is here to stay, we as Christians must deal with Satan and his followers the best we can until JESUS CHRIST comes again and brings the world to it’s end. If we will stand with JESUS HE will never leave us, alone., HE will support us every moment, if we only accept HIM. Evil will continue to progress until that time and those who are shoving it in our faces will multiply.

      • bobnstuff

        God has a sense of humor, he created man didn’t he. If your faith is so fragile that SNL can shake it then you don’t truly know God.

        • Myrtle Linder

          I do not think I ever read a sense of humor and GOD connection, in HIS WORD; and this has nothing to do with my faith, I get my ideas from HIS WORD, check out; Matthew 24:21-22 and 2 Timothy 3:13-14.

          • bobnstuff

            God created the heaven and the earth, There are some very funny things in nature, If all you know about God comes from a book you truly don’t know God. He should live with in you and be part of you. You should feel his presents not just read about him. Have you never just felt so good in his grace that the joy filled you to the point of laughing. My God if a loving joyful God, I’m sorry if yours isn’t. Also he forgives anyone who truly asks. 2nd Timothy tells you that you will have people give you a hard time over your faith. It’s part of Gods plan. Read all of the third chapter of 2nd Timothy for the whole picture.

          • Myrtle Linder

            Actually most of what I know of GOD and HIS SON did come from a book, called THE HOLY BIBLE.!! The very first words say “In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth”. I believe it is self righteous people, something like you, that most of my problems concerning HIM, come from!! I have been reading this book for more that 70 years. I have a child and several grandchildren who graduated from a Christina College. Actually, I do have a fairly good understanding of GOD’S WORD, but am not self righteous, knowing more that anyone else.

            In addition to my Bible studies, I have read it from cover to cover twice. You may say that does not mean that I understand everything in there, and I would agree, remember that description fits you, too!! I and my husband raised two children and their college was a Christian college. My schooling was basically “The School Of Hard Knocks!”

          • bobnstuff

            I have read the New Testament in Greek but my faith is much deeper then the Bible and my joy in God my savior come from my own moment on my road to Damascus. I have been filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. All I am is because of God, a loving forgiving God that wants us to feel the joy only he can give. My school was not hard at all because I had given my life to my Lord and he gave me no task that was to hard for the great gifts he gave me. I was freed of fear and worry. It’s been 46 years now and a great life with him. I only wish ever one could have the feeling of peace I have been given. Praise God the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

            Boy what a switch from your previous post. Are you bipolar! You’re sarcastic and snotty previously and now you’re talking like a Spirit-filled, led by the Spirit, subdued, trying to come across that you’ve submitted your tongue and abrasive nature to the Lord…where you ‘walk peaceably’. Sounds like good words -but Jesus warns us we know them by their fruit.

            You turn it off and on don’t you?

            I fight the battle for truth, if you post something I know to be wrong I will point it out. In life I try not to put myself first but serve others. My life choices have been based on the needs of others and even though I have had to give up much I know that they have been the right ones. I don’t say what is popular on this sight but what I know to be the truth.

            Yes indeed, Myrtle, keep growing in the faith.

            Our Redeemer has a sense of humor, yes, or He wouldn’t have given us such animals as the duck-bill platypus to confound the evolutionist, and He wouldn’t have given my dear wife to such a clinker as I am for a husband, but His humor is for our benefit and not to run down anything that is right and good and proper. HalleluYAH for His patience with us foolish mortals, in the Master Yahushua’s (Jesus’) Name, omein!

          • ShemSilber

            Yes, indeed! Even Elijah the prophet thought he was alone, but what did Yahuwah, the only true Mighty One, say to him? Per 1Kings 19:18, He told Elijah that there were 7,000 in Israel (the ten tribes that Jeroboam had led into apostasy) who had not bowed the knee to Baal nor kissed that idol. Even so, there are many more than we think whose trust is in the Messiah, who will live in His Presence and never die, but rejoice in working with Him forever. We don’t even know yet how wonderful that will be. Praise His Name who has saved us for everlasting life, omein!

      Unless they turn to the Redeemer whom they are ridiculing and ask for His forgiveness, the SNL personnel will find out that they SHOULD have gotten over it before they were sent to burn to ashes in the fires of Gei-Hinnom, for the wages of sins, says Romans 6:23, is death, not everlasting life in hell fire, but the gift of Yahuwah Almighty is everlasting life in the Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus), omein.

      • bobnstuff

        It is God alone that gets to judge their action, it’s not our job. We can act on our knowledge of God’s will but we don’t get to judge others. We don’t see the whole picture, only God can see into their hearts. Judge not less you be judged. God may have used this as a tool to get people talking about him and his true nature, you don’t know. If you believe in an all powerful God you know some fools on TV can’t reduce his power. There will always be people who will make fun of God and think they are being funny. There will also always be people who will do harm to Gods people. They can only hurt my body, God has put his seal on my soul. In other words God is greater the SNL.

        • ShemSilber

          Keep the faith, Brother Bob, and ask the Master to help you grow in it, for we all need to keep on growing and not be stagnant.

          You are right that it is not for us to judge, but it is right and good and proper to pass on to them what the Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) has said in His Scriptures to us. I am among those whom the Master has called to be a watchman. That is not a judge, but a witness to give warning concerning danger. As Isaiah says, all nations are less than nothing before Him, per Isaiah 40:17, let alone a pipsqueak operation like SNL.

          HalleluYAH for His patience with us mortals, in the Master Yahushua’s Name, omein.

          • bobnstuff

            Here is my feeling about Mr. Boone’s reaction. Had he said nothing to the press SNL would have just been another bad skit which they have had many but now it’s a news story and people who would never heard about it will now go watch it. His actions did two things, it got his name out in the news and it gave free advertising for a show that most people think went of the air years ago. Instead of serving God he served SNL.

          • ShemSilber

            That very well may be, that SNL got some free publicity.

            On the other hand, Mr. Boone was no doubt feeling the responsibility of a watchman, one whose responsibility is to hear the counsel of Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud! Spare not! Lift up your voice like a shofar and show My people their sins, their Torah violations!”

            At any rate, I’m expecting to meet both you and Mr. Boone in the Master’s Presence, for we shall all know who are all the other millions of citizens of His Kingdom. Keep the faith, grow in it, and be there, Brother Bob!

            Shalom (peace) in the Master Yahushua’s Name, omein!

          • bobnstuff

            Mr. Boone is promoting his movie. I may not have believed it at first but he was out complain about SNL again and it is clear now to me that he was put up to it by his PR people. Calling out evil for Gods sake is one thing but doing to promote a movie is something else. I think Mr. Boone’s halo is slipping a bit.

            I hope to see you in the hear after, If I’m lucky I will be the one tending Gods garden in heaven as I try to do on earth. Peace.

          • ShemSilber

            Thank you, Brother Bob, and may the shalom of our Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) also surround you and lead you in His merciful and kind Way, until we are all in His Presence, omein.

          • I Seigel

            I’m sure SNL benefits a lot from free publicity on right-wing websites and FOX. Lots of their intended audience are part of that demographic. Or maybe not.

          • ShemSilber

            I wouldn’t know, not being a fan either of SNL or Fox. WND and Arutz Sheva are both a lot more reliable news sources, and if I’m looking for a laugh, the Dry Bones cartoon is usually pretty good. I didn’t even pay much attention to Pat Boone until he turned out to be a writer for WND.

            As for those who speak evil of the Master Yahushua (Lord Jesus) and what He stands for, they would do well to pay heed to the Torah principle not to follow a crowd to do evil (Exodus 23:2). Life is a lot simpler when we act according to the instructions that Yahushua gave Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses our [highly respected] Teacher), as 1Corinthians 10:4 and Hebrews 11:24-26 indicate He did. Omein.

          • I Seigel

            As much as I find your religious hallucinations entertaining, would you mind if I just pointed out one teeny tiny little factoid? You’ll find that Jesus and Moses never had a chance to have a conversation. Moses died, oh maybe a thousand years before Christ was born. If Moses and Jesus shared the same time in history, that would mean Jesus was witness to the plagues, the Red Sea incident and the Ten Commandments story. I think you’ll find that that’s not the case. Omein.
            Unless, of course, you want to tell me that the dinosaurs helped the Pharaohs build the pyramids, and then we have a whole other thing we can talk about.

          • ShemSilber

            The Master Himself will tell you otherwise, when you meet Him, as you will. He will tell you that He is the Son referred to in Proverbs 30:4. He will show you that He is the Living Torah, as explained in John 1:1-18. He told the Jewish bigwigs in the time that He came from the heavens, “Before Avraham was, I AM.”

            He was whom the Father sent to call Moses from his daddy-in-law’s place in Midyan to go free the children of Israel from Egypt, and who inflicted the plagues on Egypt, took all the firstborn of Egypt, and who drowned the Pharaoh’s million-man army in the Yam Suf (Sea of Reeds).

            He it is who will rule from Yahrushalayim (Jerusalem), generating peace on earth, per Isaiah 2:1-4 and Micah 4:1-4.

            And He it is whose blood atones for the sin of all mankind, and whose resurrection assures those who trust in Him of everlasting life.

            You don’t have to believe it for it to be true. Truth is eternal, regardless of what people think. But it sure is neat to be on the winning team under Him in the battle against the evil one. He has the victory sewn up solid.

            As for me and my house, we will serve Yahuwah, in the Name of the Master Yahushua, omein.

      It says in the last days, there will be mockers and scoffers- So we’ll just have to get over it huh Bobnstuff? It’s a warning! Even in God’s grace He has given that warning to all man kind believers and nonbelievers.so they can be aware of the times and, if not fools, get their hearts prepared. The fool in his heart says there is no God. The fool also has an I-could-care-less- attitude and says, he’ll get over it. Which is a reckless,careless attitude because it indicates you’re not really aware of the seriousness of the hour we live in. Are you one of the mockers? You sound like it. Maybe you should work on getting the cynicism out of your heart..Or maybe continue to condone the flippant arrogancy (which is prophetically come to pass and is here) of what Jesus said would be manifest in the last days.

        I will let you worry about the last days, I live in today and trust God for the future. Christ tells us not to worry but to live a life in his love. I choose that life.
