This is ridiculous

I know I am going to get my butt kicked for that one from my fiance but I am just so mad about the Media censorship happening here.

Kathy Griffin, some actor I had actually not heard much about received a creative art Emmy yesterday. Fine. Who cares. As most or all winners she went up the stage and felt compelled to say a few words, well who wouldn't? How else do you get air-time right?

Anyway. She said: "...a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." and she finished up with: "The award is my god now!".

As you can imagine, the Al Sharpton of churches, the catholic church, called outrage. They call it a "hate speech" and to "denounce Griffin's obscene and blasphemous comment."

This is truly ridiculous. Since when do we live in a religious totalitarian regime? Since when can one not call a cheap plastic statue her god? It is her freaking business. No-one else's. Granted, 90% + of all people in this country will not agree with her but that does not matter. This country was supposed to be founded on the principles of free speech and belief.

E! who is airing this event said they may censor her speech and even bleep wards. So what will it be? "...a lot of people come up here _____. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than bleep." and "The award is my bleep now".

If I was Griffin I would throw that bleep right at them. Such narrow-minded idiots that cannot understand just because something is the minority it may be censored? Who cares if she thinks that little statue is her God? So be it! And if she does not think Jesus had anything to do with her getting the award, well so don't all Jews, Muslims, Hindu and Buddhist (just an assumption) which is probably close to half the worlds population. Maybe she believes, that she worked so hard getting this Emmy, no divine intervention happened. So?

All this does not have anything to do with my own belief. It should not have to do with anyone's belief as her belief is her own. How can a fundamental belief be called ridiculous even if it sounds like such to most people. E! and Catholic Church, you are ridiculous.
I pity the fool.
