    I laughed hysterically but apparently some conservative groups are a little upset.

    You want to talk perverted ... in the best sense of the word.

    Hilarious. Imagine the outcry if the Prophet Mohamed had visited Sarah.
    All U.S. embassies around the world would be on high alert.

    Silverman's piece was A+

    Well, of course they are. The skit's a trope for less stringent abortion laws.

    It was funny.

    But, in the end, we (Christians) will get the last laugh.

    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    with the cross of Jesus going on before.
    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
    forward into battle see his banners go!

    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    with the cross of Jesus going on before.

    2. At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee;
    on then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
    Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
    brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

    3. Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
    brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
    We are not divided, all one body we,
    one in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

    4. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
    but the church of Jesus constant will remain.
    Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail;
    we have Christ's own promise, and that cannot fail.

    5. Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
    blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
    Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
    this through countless ages men and angels sing.
    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    with the cross of Jesus going on before.

    The first two minutes of that were kind of funny. Then it went into being an infomercial for abortion and I turned it off about 30 seconds later. I felt like I got suckered into a time share pitch.

    Sarah Silverman quickly went from being a cute, kind of funny comedian to being off-the-rails batshit crazy. Almost everything she does is so anti-Christian as to border on obsession. If she were making jokes about African-Americans and Asians with the same level of venom she'd be alongside Michael Richards on the list of highly unemployable celebrities.
    Whether you think there's some merit to what she's saying or not, if you take a step back and listen objectively to her tone it's obvious there's some real hatred there. It's frightening on a certain level.

    Admittedly I felt a bit roped in as well, but she does have great tits. At least Christians have a sense of humor about this stuff. Muslims at this point would be getting ready to
    storm the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in protest.

    I think she's a) Batshit crazy. b) Knows what she can get away with.

    She tried pushing the envelope from time to time in her short SNL stint. It worked as well for her there as it did for Janeane Garofalo.

    That's also a balance of comedic skill.

    Sarah Silverman is funny. No question.

    Yet when you build an entire schtick around hating this or hating that, it limits whether people can see that you're actually a funny person.

    And as Boom referenced, she does do nudies. So.
