AFA Shocked By SNL’s “Djesus Uncrossed” Video

And the award for Jesus Outrage That Totally Missed The Boat goes to the American Family Association for its outrage over Saturday Night Live’s mockery of Quentin Tarantino. Yes guys, it’s a mockery of Tarantino for the silly historical revenge fantasy kick he’s been on with Inglourious Basterds and the recently released Django Unchained

In fact I owe a thank you to the AFA whose outrage brought the clip to my inbox long after my love affair with SNL ended.

My favorite part: a faux blurb from the Times‘ A.O. Scott: “A less violent Passion of the Christ.”
