On its April 16 episode, the NBC show “Saturday Night Live” mocked Christians and the recent film “God’s Not Dead 2.”
“God’s Not Dead 2” tells the story of a teacher who is sued by the ACLU for referencing Jesus in a history class about the history of civil disobedience. She goes to court and refuses to recant, winning the case.
In the SNL parody, Beth, “a small town baker,” refuses to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. In what a dramatic voice calls “a story of liberal elites run wild,” Beth is sued. “My clients just need you to say three simple words,” one of the lawyers says. “God is gay.”
Beth refuses, and is taken to court. She is shown making hand gestures that mimic human intercourse, and says “I’m going to prove once and for all that God is straight.”
“You know God is gay,” the judge tells her. “Just admit it!”
At the climax Beth calls out, “God is a boob man!” The court gallery cheers.
