OpposingViews.com is a fun site to browse if you want to see stupid but kind of funny opinions. For example, the Catholic League — yes, that Catholic League — thinks Jon Stewart’s a misogynist.
See, in this clip, at about 4:50, Stewart, after pointing out that FOX News is more outraged over the Establishment Clause being upheld than it is over my right to medical care, joked that maybe they’d be more enthusiastic about vaginas and those who owned them if they fit the holiday theme.
Jon Stewart refused to apologize last night for the unprecedented assault on Christian sensibilities he launched on April 16. In that episode, “The Daily Show” featured a naked woman with her legs spread and a nativity scene ornament placed between her legs; with the picture on the screen, Stewart laughed at what he called the “vagina manger.”
The vagina manger thing wouldn’t be funny if it weren’t true that conservative groups in the U.S. have their priorities completely ass-backwards. One of the most effective jokes in the world is taking something to a conclusion that’s logically sound but completely ridiculous. The Catholic League and friends can’t stand women, but they love Christmas, so a logical (but absurd) thing to do would be to temper women’s ickiness with Christmas’s magical glow of love and cultural hegemony.
This is just the beginning. Over the next several weeks, we will contact every major Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Mormon and Muslim leader and organization in the nation; they will be sent the picture, along with Stewart’s remarks. We will contact Viacom (which owns Comedy Central, home to “The Daily Show”) making sure that all board members and senior management know about Stewart’s anti-Christian and grossly misogynist attack. We will take out ads in newspapers, etc. We are not going away.
Hey, Catholic League, you’re the ones who won’t let gross ladyparts anywhere near your favorite holiday.
