Sarah Palin to Appear on Saturday Night Live

Sarah Palin will appear on Saturday Night Live this weekend, John McCain told David Letterman on his show tonight.

Several people have told me that they watched Tina Fey's depiction of Palin before watching Palin's actual interviews, and it's been interesting to watch the tiny religion references in the skits.

During the first skit, Amy Poehler portrays Hillary Clinton saying, "I believe global warming is caused by man," which Fey responds with, "And I believe it's just God hugging us closer."

And then Fey's response in the debate replay: "Gwen, we don't know if this climate change hoozie-what's-it is man-made or if it's just a natural part of the 'End of Days.'"


Funny how poking fun at someone's faith isn't taboo in our society as long as he/she is a Christian...any other group and we'd hear cries of the ACLU rallying.

If it's in poor taste for one, it's in poor taste for everyone.

Or maybe we Christians are just too sensitive about it. The jokes on SNL are primarily not about faith. I don't understand how we can complain about not being Politically correct on one issue (faith) and then complain about political correctness on other issues. Many commented on the Obama Waffles post that it was not racially offense. Others thought that hanging an effigy and making racially intimidating statements was not a hate crime.

If it weren't so easy to make fun of Christians (or Christians didn't get so mad about it when it happens) comics and others probably would stop.

Anyone else think it's mind boggling not to mention disrespectful to the American people that someone who thinks themselves worthy of the second highest office in the land will appear on SNL but not appear on any of the Sunday morning political shows?
