Let’s offer some congratulations to AMC’s Preacher for giving me the fastest, most efficient subject for an article yet. The latest episode featured a subject so embarrassingly crass that I’m shocked I got through the entire episode without slamming my head against a wall. It only takes three simple words: Jesus having sex.
The August 21 episode “Dirty Little Secret” adds a new wrinkle to Jesse Custer’s (Dominic Cooper) search for God as he eventually crosses paths with the religious organization known as The Grail.
But before we get into the plot, the show decides to spend its first five minutes depicting Jesus Christ having gratuitous sex with a married woman the night he is arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane. And when I say gratuitous, I mean gratuitous! They are shown moaning and screaming in multiple positions and the woman asks Jesus, “Could you just stick your finger in my…” So, so, so wrong!
After the marathon sex session, Jesus admits he was a virgin and then gets ready to leave, subtly referencing the Last Supper and upcoming crucifixion.
Jesus: I gotta go.
Woman: You won’t stay for supper?
Jesus: I already ate.
Woman: Oh. Okay.
Jesus: Oh, no, it’s… It’s not like that. I just — I have to do something… For my dad.
Woman: In the middle of the night?
Jesus: I made him a promise. Tonight meant a lot to me. And no matter what happens, I want you to remember one thing. I love you.
Jesus: Y-you — And also… You can never, ever tell anyone about this. Cool?
Disciple: Jesus! Jesus, are you in there?!
Jesus: Stay right there. What’s up, guys?
Disciple: Where the hell have you been? We’ve been worried sick. You said you were going to the garden to pray.
Jesus: Yeah. I was in the garden. You guys were passed out, so I came here… to bless this ailing woman.
Disciple: The Chief Priests are on the warpath. We gotta move.
Jesus: Chill, bro.
Disciple: No, I will not chill. They wanna kill you, man.
Jesus: Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Disciple: The hell does that even mean, man?
Jesus: You’ll understand… Someday.
Disciple: Come on. Judas is meeting us at midnight with the getaway donkeys.
Jesus: It’s been real.
I do not remember that piece of history in Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John, either. Nor do I ever recall the passage where Jesus uttered the words “chill, bro.” If I didn’t already despise Preacher for showing me a Jesus sex scene, I would have tossed them into a pit for that moment alone. But it’s not like the show even pretended to care what was in the Bible besides ingredients for a decent joint.
A previous episode already revealed the existence of a group that protects a descendant of Jesus Christ, so I suppose in the writers’ depraved heads it only makes sense to show how that happened. After all, it helps satisfies their craving to sully one of the world’s largest religions and tick off people like me.
It’s times like these that actually have me wonder why shows never think to touch on Islam since they do have a prophet who was more than a little promiscuous – Ok, I don’t really wonder why. That show would practically write itself, but it would require equal opportunity religious scorn, just about the only equality liberals don’t stand for.
But wait! There’s more! The show continues to follow its graphic novel origins by portraying the Messiah descendant of Jesus as a mentally handicapped result of inbreeding. Yes, even in their backwards interpretation of a major religion we can’t have a speck of dignity in religion. The only purpose it seems to serve anymore is for shock value when Jesse sees him.
Herr Starr: Jesse… This is the Christ Child. The Holy bloodline. Our most precious figurehead. The Messiah. Look upon him.
Jesse: I… I don’t know what to say. I’m just a humble s– This power, I think I’ve been given it to find your Father — God. Tell me, am I on the right path? All I ever wanted was to serve you. Please. I don’t even know what to call you.
Herr Starr: We call him… Humperdoo.
Jesse: You call him…? Aah!
Herr Starr: Ah. He likes you.
Humperdoo: Hello. Nice to meet yous. Is so happy to see yous.
Jesse: Who the hell is this?
Herr Starr: I told you. This is The Messiah — Humperdoo.
Humperdoo: I Humperdoo.
Herr Starr: That’s right. Good boy.
Herr Starr: Very good, my Lord.
Har-dee-har. I’m sorry, but at this point, these jabs aren’t funny. Not even satirically. It’s like making fun of Trump’s hair or Republicans being the party of rich, white men. Those jokes are no longer new, relevant, or even close to original. All we have left is the basest form of contempt disguised as something funny, and it’s only getting worse.
But that’s just what Preacher does. Anything connected to Christianity is fair game for mocking or outright hostility. I can’t speak for anyone tired of me writing about it, but I am getting sick and tired of seeing it.
A piece of “performance art” released by the taxpayer-funded Scottish National Portrait Gallery describes white people as “inbred spawn soon to die out.”
The spoken word video, performed by Mercury Prize-winners Young Fathers and published on YouTube last week, features Aloysius Massaquoi racially insulting some of Scotland’s most iconic figures, including King James III and architect Sir William Bruce.
Set to ominous background music, Massaquoi states, “Gold. Edged and decorated. A coat framed with gold surrounding white skin, wrapped around your body fat and muscles and bones like a magic cloak. The signs of power. The signs of wealth. Insignia. Details that seem small and inconsequential but they are proof of status. Your status. White. Powerful. Rich.”
“Am I meant to admire the brushwork and the colours and the historical context, without considering how you came to be here? And people who look like me aren’t? Am I meant to just accept that this is how things work out,” questions Massaquoi as he throws air punches at the paintings.
“I am here, too, now. And you are dead. Dead, random white dude. What’s so special about you?” he goes on to ask.
“The signs of wealth, the insignia of status, they are a gravestone that a dog pisses against, shifting, cracked in clay. They are a long line of in-bred spawn, soon to die out themselves,” states Massaquoi.
“Perhaps someone could inform this idiot these men are framed in gold because they’re highly distinguished and achieved real accomplishments in their lives beyond rapping?” writes Chris Menahan.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery YouTube account responded to the backlash by disabling likes and comments on the video.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is primarily funded by the Scottish government using taxpayer money. The gallery’s 2011 refurbishment was also largely funded by the Scottish government and in turn taxpayers.
Not that this should even have to be explained, but the reason there are no portraits of black men hanging in the gallery is that the black population of Scotland is infintessimel even now, never mind hundreds of years ago.
According to official government statistics, Caribbean or Black individuals make up just 0.1% of the population of Scotland.
The notion that it’s racist to showcase the accomplishments of some of Scotland’s most iconic historical figures because they were white is patently absurd and is itself racist.
This would be just as ludicrous as getting outraged at South Africans for celebrating Nelson Mandela because Mandela is black and South African is a majority black country. It’s completely ridiculous.
This is yet another example of the far left, with the aid of dominant cultural institutions, attempting to either re-write or taint western history merely because the most influential figures were white men.
This is explained by the fact that countries such as Scotland have been historically and still are to this day overwhelming populated by white people. To claim any other reason is completely preposterous.
But with the BBC and others now inserting black people into historical events such as the signing of the Magna Carta and the Norman invasion of Britain, who knows where this idiocy will end?
