To be honest I had never heard of Kathy Griffin, but her comments piqued my interest on several levels, so I Googled her up and found this:
LOS ANGELES — Before Kathy Griffin won a creative arts Emmy last weekend for her reality show….
In her speech, Griffin said that "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim, "This award is my god now!"
It always intrigues me when someone who obviously depends on the public for whatever successes that may enjoy does something any intelligent person would know would anger a large chunk of that public.
Now if you assume that Ms Griffin is not dumber than a door knob then you come to two conclusions.
A. She doesn’t care because you are wrong and she really is dumb.
B. She doesn’t care because she knows that such statements will actually help her career among those who watch her show.
I pick door “B.” Simply put there are a large number of people in this country who are ignorant as to what Christianity is all about, and what Christianity has accomplished. To them nasty comments about Christianity is proof of the commentators’ sophisticated view of the world and her disdain of the dummies who get up, go to work every day and try to maintain a small amount of decorum and respect in the world. Her fans are the rightful heirs to the “Barbarians at the Gate” that destroyed Rome and launched the world into the Dark Ages. Without them Ms. Griffin would not exist in her present state.
So I do not blame her, I place the blame on those who created and sustained her. The answer is just as my classmate said. Don’t watch. Don’t buy. Flip the channel. The marketplace is the answer.
As to her statements, someone should sit her down and explain to her that she can say such things because our country is unique in the world because our rights are God given, not by man. Without that belief then our rights are not protected, and depend on man rather than God. Such beliefs have universally proved to be founded on sand and wash away at the first sign of flood.
As to the correctness of her statements, time will give her a clearer understanding.
