Fox Blasphemes Jesus Christ in Airing Family Guy’s ‘2,000 Year Old Virgin’ Episode.

Concerns are being raised over an episode of “Family Guy” that aired on Fox this past weekend, the parent company of Fox News Network and Fox Entertainment Group, which blasphemes Jesus Christ by mocking his purity and depicting the Messiah as desiring to lose his virginity with another man’s wife.

“The 2,000 Year Old Virgin” was broadcast on Fox on Saturday, and was meant to be the Christmas version of “Family Guy,” an animated sitcom that often features off-color humor known to push the envelope. The show is produced by Fuzzy Door Productions, run by atheist Seth McFarlane, and 20th Century Fox Television, run by Jewish President David Madden. Fox was acquired in 1985 by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, who also publishes both the NIV Bible and The Satanic Bible through his ownership of Zondervan and Harper Collins.

In the controversial episode, “Family Guy” character Peter Griffin learns that Jesus is a virgin, and in a similar plot as the film “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” sets out to help the Messiah lose His virginity.

“After running into Jesus at the Quahog Mall, Peter is stunned to discover that the Son of God is still a virgin,” a description of the episode outlines. “So, he enlists Quagmire and Cleveland to help him throw Jesus the best birthday ever by finding a way to help him become a man.”

When Jesus, who is played by Alec Sulkin and depicted as a man with long hair who goes out with the guys for a beer, selects Peter’s wife Lois, Peter agrees under the condition that he receive a massage chair.

The episode then depicts Jesus as lying about his virginity—that he only tells men that he is a virgin so that he can have sexual relations with their wives in exchange for gifts. As Jesus and Lois rent a hotel room together, Lois pulls out of the situation, stating that she doesn’t want anyone other than her husband. At the end of the broadcast after Peter and Lois thank Jesus for teaching them a lesson about resisting temptation, Jesus declares, “Who cares? I’m not even real. Merry Christmas.”

During a commentary on the broadcast in Season 4, creator McFarlane spoke on his hatred for Christianity.

“Do I have that much contempt for Christianity? I guess maybe I do,” he said. “The Big Bang has got a lot of support, live with it.”

“I do not believe in God. I’m an atheist,” he stated in a separate interview. “I consider myself a critical thinker, and it fascinates me that in the 21st century most people still believe in, as George Carlin puts it, ‘the invisible man living in the sky.’”

But McFarlane’s latest episode has disgusted even those who identify as fans of the often controversial sitcom, as they state that “Family Guy” has gone too far.

“This is thirty minutes of a ticked off anti-Christian making sure the world understands that he hates Jesus,” one commenter on IMDB wrote. “It was all about Seth MacFarlane forcing his views down our collective throats.”

“This is the first time I’ve stopped watching a Family Guy episode less than a quarter way through,” another wrote. “It’s absolutely sickening what they did.”

Some called for Fox to pull the broadcast before it aired, but it was given airtime anyway. The full episode also remains posted on the Fox website.

That’s Fox for ya, same company that brings us the neo-con Fox News…

    Fox staff carry pockets full of seeds of Murdoch’s own corruption, ready to sow at the devil’s direction. Down the dollar hole Fox will go. Where it lands nobody will know.

    The double-standard is really quite sickening. Mock Christianity all you want guys, but even a hint of disrespect for Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism or anything else and you are nothing more than a redneck bigot with the IQ of 2. Reminds me of the “controversy” surrounding the whole nun Halloween costume with Walmart that you talked about.

    So mocking and offending Christianity is all fun and games, but even hinting at the idea that Islam might not be the peaceful religion it claims to be and you are a racist bigot. The double standards would be funny if it weren’t so sickening.

    Well being a servant of God results in a bullseye put there by Satan anyways. Christians should stop expecting sympathy from a world ruled by the prince of the air.

    Ask for a heroic demise, not for sympathy for being pitiable victim.

    McFartland’s assumption that loss of virginity equals manhood is juvenile. Too arrogant to study Scripture so instead he brings his atheistic/secular
    (anti)wisdom to bear. In Jesus the Sequel, Christ lies about his virginity in order to game the wives of other men into giving him stuff, including sex. I guess if you look and act like McFartland, you figure the only people getting laid in the world are deities.

    These Hollywood twits sure have been getting anxious to dis Christ and Scripture lately in their secular and subtletized films. E.g., the new humanist and jazzed version of the Bible, where Noah battles half-breed fallen angel machine-hings . . . etc.

    ray, your point is quite apt. Another rather peculiar and perverse notion of Modernity and their take on manhood is this obsession with sex being a ‘rite of passage’. Virginity preceding covenant has gone from a sign of purity and righteous asceticism to a sort of virus for the Moderns that must be cured as soon as possible (for the Sodomites, it must be removed as early as 3 years old and by force if necessary).

    I did just pen an article on the manifestations of true manhood, neither of which is the loss of virginity nor even any sexual practice.

    Intercourse is actually rather trivial when it comes to manhood, and rightly so. Any wolf, falcon or spider can rut. Then again, the Moderns have always had a fixation with making us all nothing more than the beasts that crawl in the dirt.

    As for Mr. McFarland, remember always that he is a clown. His achievement in life will have been chuckles, and in spite of all the money and fame his works have brought him, at the end of it all his mark on the world will not have been different from a party clown.
