Several items – bigotry, vulgarity, and foul language alert.
“(Comedy Central executive Jake Weisman’s) incendiary comment was in response to a news release I wrote about the February 14th episode of ‘Corporate’… A woman dressed like a nun was shown seductively sucking a cross-shaped popsicle. She remarked, ‘My favorite flavor – the blood of Christ.’ It doesn’t get much dirtier than this… While Hollywood was not always a bastion of anti-Catholicism, in the past half-century it has certainly evolved into one. Let’s be honest: If Jews were portrayed the way Hollywood portrays Catholics, it would be labeled the premier anti-Semitic industry in America.” (Emphasis added) – Bill Donohue, “Comedy Central exec threatens church” – Catholic League, Feb. 16th, 2018.
“Last week we noted how the Comedy Central show, ‘Corporate,’ assaulted Christ… after we flagged what happened on the February 14 episode, Jake Weisman, co-creator and writer of the show, responded by making incendiary remarks about the Catholic Church on Twitter… The worst of Weisman’s tweets was a remark he made about Christ, saying that our Lord ‘sucked his own d***’… (Viacom president Robert) Bakish needs to have someone call this guy in and hold him accountable. To do nothing is to say that when it comes to vile hate speech directed at Christianity, Hollywood is incapable of being shamed.” – William Donohue, “Christ defiled by Comedy Central exec” – Catholic League, Feb. 20th, 2018.

“In what is my life’s crowning achievement, I have now gotten the Catholic League to report on me saying that Christ sucked his own dick. I do not think I can ever top this. Please enjoy the funniest most insane article ever and laugh forever.” (My emphasis) – Jake Weisman FB page, Feb 20th, 2018 – see it here, take a look at the comments as well…
