‘SNL’ spoofs Quentin Tarantino film in gory, offensive ‘Djesus Uncrossed’ skit

‘Saturday Night Live‘ took it about as far as possible this week, filming a bloody Jesus-centered skit that will no doubt offend religious Americans, especially during the season of Lent.

SNL‘ was hosted by Christoph Waltz, an Austrian-German actor known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Inglourious Basterds‘ and ‘Django Unchained.’ Playing off of Waltz’s acting history, ‘SNL‘ filmed a spoof movie trailer called ‘Djesus Uncrossed,’ which depicts Jesus Christ returning from the dead and exacting his revenge on the Romans.

And Christ’s revenge is incredibly gory, as the Son of God and his followers chop heads in half and blow holes in Roman soldiers with machine guns.

“No more Mr. Nice Jesus,” Waltz, dressed as Jesus, says.

While the movie trailer sketch will no doubt appeal to Tarantino and Waltz fans for its stylistic accuracy, the timing of the skit — as well as the extreme gore — come across as incredibly insensitive to those currently celebrating Lent. ‘SNL‘ is certainly never bound by ‘political correctness,’ fans of the show might wonder if the cast crossed a line with this one.

    “Offensive” my white, hetero POPO!!!
    This is a GREAT model for how today’s Right should confront the Left (call them “Democrats”, if you’re in a nostalgic mood): okay, perhaps not *literally* (unless DHS unleashes their 1.6 billion rounds of ammo first), but in the vehement, un-misunderstandable, up-yours-and-if-you-don’t-like-it-then-UP-YOURS! manner.

    I’ve noticed that the writers at SNL are much more comfortable mocking Jesus than mocking Muhammad.
