OK, let’s have a quick recap and see where we have been so far prior to this latest blooper…
- we had a silly anti-atheist rant here (18th Aug)
- that was followed by an extremely ill-informed racist slur here about Ferguson here (Aug 21)
- then we had a truly daft claim that atheists secretly believe in god here (Aug 27) [I blogged about this one here]
… well it’s been a week or two, so given the above track record I guess he is about due for another, and sure enough he has indeed delivered.
This time it is an anti-Semitic slip on 5th Sept.
The context is that he was doing a phone interview on “Vocal Point” the radio show hosted by Jerry Newcombe and was discussing how Mel Gibson’s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, opened doors to other Christian-based films being made.
Newcombe: “I think Mel Gibson crashed a gate, in a very big way, 10 years ago.”
Sorbo: “Oh, he got attacked when he was shooting ‘The Passion’, From the Jewish community, saying ‘look at the way you’re portraying us,’ I mean, I go, okay, news bulletin: you did kill Jesus.”
Newcombe (corrected Sorbo): “Well, they delivered him over to the Romans, right.”
Sorbo: “Exactly, They did deliver him, so they had a hand in it. Um, and what did it do? A $30 million movie made $500 million, so Mel sort of had the last laugh there.”
Here is that actual dialog …
OK, so where are we so far?
… well he hates non-whites, atheists and now the jewish community, so he is indeed on a roll here. To fill the card, he simply needs to tick the homophobia and misogynistic box and we have a full house. He is not quite there yet, but give him a bit more time and let’s see.
There is one thought he should consider embracing from a source that he embraces as the ultimate bastion of all “truth” …
Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues. – Proverbs 17:28
