“CBS and actor Charlie Sheen have used the Christmas season to ridicule and mock Christ, Christmas and Christians. CBS approved actor Charlie Sheen’s vulgar adaptation of a favorite Christian Christmas carol. On the December 11 program, the network included in their Two and a Half Men an episode featuring Sheen singing about his sexual activity to the tune of the traditional Christmas hymn "Joy to the World."
CBS and Sheen knew that the lyrics would greatly offend Christians, but did not hesitate to air them. Click here to see the episode on CBS.
The episode opens with series star Charlie (Sheen) singing:
“Joy to the world, I’m getting laid; I’m getting laid tonight. We’ll light the yule log, deck the halls, and then we’ll play some jingle balls. It’s been a real long wait – this is our second date! It’s Christmas Eve and I’m getting laid.”
His housekeeper/cook comes in and asks:
“Hey, I’m mixing up the egg nog. You want this broad lit up or just slightly glowing?” “Well,” Charlie says, “let’s see, we’re celebrating peace on earth and good will towards all mankind, so let’s get ‘er plowed!” “Hallelujah!” says the cook.
Charlie returns to singing, “Glo-oh-oh-oh-oh-ria, tonight I’m boinking Gloria!” CBS punctuates every single line with a laugh track.
Such actions send a signal from CBS and Hollywood: “It’s ok to bash Christians, their religion and their God.” If you are tired of this bigotry from CBS and Hollywood, please take action and then forward this to your friends and family.”
Oh, the horror! Oh, the humanity! Oh, the blasphemy! (/sarcasm off)
I live in sunny N. California, and I watched this episode already (yeah, yeah, it’s lowbrow, non-intellectual humor: I like it. Gotta problem with that? Complaint department’s down the street) – don’t these people have better things to do? Yikes, get a freakin’ hobby already!
I don’t recall any atheists getting up in arms over this little ditty:
Why? Because we don’t take ourselves that bloody seriously. Lest we forget, there’s that little thing called freedom of speech, which leaves all forums (religious or no) open to criticism.
Don’t like it?
Then move somewhere where you CAN regulate criticism. Otherwise, welcome to the U.S. of A.
