Just for the record, I think KG is a complete moron. If she had anything intelligent to say, she wouldn’t be a comic, she wouldn’t be on the D-List, she wouldn’t be in Hollywood at all. If she were intelligent and had anything meaningful to contribute to the well being of America and her citizens, she’d be sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. So I’m not sure why you are reading this post. It is old. I have written better things about KG and her current comments. Try those instead. Either way, I hope that whoever is reading this post, will bother to read some of the other posts here and learn about Jesus–the same Jesus that KG mocks.
I’m a big fan of irony. So, when I came across this short article at townhall.com I was actually shocked by its sheer stupidity and ignorance. Not the writers or reporters of the article, but what the subject of the article (Kathy Griffen) had to say: “America has got very Jesus-y. And you know Jesus … Jesus didn’t like homosexuals!” She went on to attack American Christians saying, “Well these Christians, they gotta twist everything, its how they are, craaaazy fundamentalists!” (From townhall.com)
The irony in this is that there is a whole segment of church folk out there right now trying to prove exactly the opposite: That Jesus did love homosexuals–they even have the Scriptural justification to back it up!!! And, since he did, there are clergy folk who officiate homosexual weddings, there are churches designed specifically for homosexuals, bi-sexuals, tri-sexuals, metro-sexuals, any-sexuals, there are homosexual theologians re-writing the New and Old Testament, there are openly and defiantly homosexual members of the ‘clergy.’ Ms. Griffen’s statements are either profoundly ignorant or surpremely ironic. I’m not sure which, but I’ll say this much: She doesn’t know much about the homosexual movement in the church in the United States. There are, to be sure, only a few places in the world where homoseuxality is more welcome and promoted as healthy, alternative, and acceptable than some supposedly christian churches in America. [And I am in no way, shape, form or other in support of such actions. The homosexual movement within the church and without is an abomination. The one within the church is surely doomed to complete failure and judgment when Christ returns. The Scripture clearly condemns homosexuality, indeed all forms of sexual perversity. The only sexuality the Scripture blesses is the marriage of one man to one woman, till death do they part.]

You can find the entire interview here: http://www.pinknews.co.uk/news/opinion/2005-4537.html But I warn you there are parts of it that are not for younger readers and some with other sensibilities might be offended.
In this interview I think she’s trying too hard to appeal to her audience (the interview is at a homsexual news service web-site). She also displays a surprising amount of ignorance and bias towards those who believe differently than she does–the exact thing she condemns in those she disagrees with. What is sad is that there are probably a lot Christians who watch her shows and laugh at her. I don’t know how seriously to take her because she also says Madonna has become very British-y. Iron-y. [Christians are not above ridicule or jokes, but KG knows nothing of the church or the way the church functions or what the church means. Unless KG finds Jesus Christ or, better, unless He finds her, she is leading quite a meaningless life doomed to failure and eternal separation from God.]
