HBO Defends Larry David 'Pissing on Jesus'

The October 25 episode titled 'The Bare Midriff' is deemed a shameless jab at Catholic but HBO said it was 'playful'.

HBO Defends Larry David 'Pissing on Jesus'
See larger image

Last Sunday on "Curb Your Enthusiasm", Larry David's new pill has increased his flow so much it is causing him to splatter, which leads to a misunderstanding about a miraculously weeping Jesus in Maureen and her mother's bathroom. Immediately after the air time, Catholic groups came out with disapproving statements.

These groups are deeming the episode as offensive and tasteless jab at their religion. The Catholic League president Bill Donohue said in a statement, "...That's what passes for creativity these days. Was Larry David always this crude? Would he think it comedic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother?" Donohue suggests David to quit the show while he's ahead.

In a more angry tone,'s Deal Hudson said, "I don't think it's funny. Why is it that people are allowed to publicly show that level of disrespect for Christian symbols? If the same thing was done to a symbol of any other religions-Jewish or Muslim-there'd be a huge outcry. It's simply not a level playing field."

While the man under attack has not responded to the criticism, HBO has released a defensive statement, telling E! News, "Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire. Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious."

Very shameful for all jews. Horrible representation and example to the rest of the world. "By their fruits ye shall know them."

Larry David is an idiot. Everyone know jews hate Christians. Wake up people. Larry definately needs to swing a few chickens around his head for that one, not like it will take away his sins. True repentance happens in the mind Larry. Shame on you.

"The talmud was written before JESUS" Actually, the talmud is a collection of dozens of books written over several centuries both before and after JESUS. And yes, JESUS of Nazareth is referenced in the talmud, which states that he deserved death.

What type of act are you outcrying about? Serendipity? He pees on Jesus by accident for anyone whos seen the show. Its just satire for the type of scenario we see a lot these days. Some fool finds Jesus's contour in a bag of potato chips or engraved with oil in a frying pan and instantly thing that they are blessed. Not saying that their not, hey believe whatever you want its all up to you. BUT what is so radical about an accidental drip on a picture of Jesus? There are satanists in Scandinavia burning down Churches every other day and you complain about a comedic bit? Again its not like he even gloryfies the act of peeing upon Jesus, it was merely an accident. Something his show is largely based upon actually- serendipity.

If you crazies hadn't noticed, David makes fun of every religion through the course of this series, jewish people included. More often than not, he makes fun of himself...if more people could do the same, the world would be better off.

Christ gets better treatment from the Muslims than from the Jews. I think we really need to refigure who we count as allies.

It's not as if he pees on Jesus on purpose. Larry David's character is potrayed as an often greedy shmuck who often comes up on the wrong end of the 'luck' stick and winds up in absurd situations. Like this one. It's not a joke to offend christians, just a poke at Catholic's love for crying statues. Do you think he would have went apeshit if someone made a satirical comment about the money hungry, big nosed Jew? Of course not. It's satire, its a joke. People are offended because G-d forbid we start laughing at and with each other instead of fighting and bickering.

it is more a light jab at fundamental, undereducated Christians. For example, look at the film Whatever Works. In that episode he is not pissing on Jesus, it is a picture of Jesus and and the woman in the sketch is hence portrayed as an idiot...

then why didn't they get Larry David to piss on a picture of Allah" Hmm just wondering... what would a picture of God look like (you know that "Allah" is the arabic word for "God", right ? In the Arabic Bible "God" is written "Allah). "the reason is cause they don't have the guts or balls to so this..." Oh really ? So they dont have problems to kill masses of muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon, but they would have a problem pissing on the Quran ? You must suffer from bad cognitive dissonance.

You idiots are taking this way too seriously. It's a little backsplash, he didn't whip out his piece and start urinating all over the picture! Get a life, or better yet... a sense of humour! Larry David is AMAZING!

What a hack. The only way he can get viewers to his "show" is by using his old Seinfeld cast and pissing on a portrait of many people's god. Now if this were a portrait of Mohammad or Moses, I'm sure Larry David would have been tarred and feathered.

OK Look! If Larry David had done this with a picture of Mohammed, I would have given him credit for having cojones. The fact that he did his "cute little shtik" with Jesus puts him in the same category as the rest of the great balless (read without balls) Hollywood left.

Yo, if ANYTHING is done to ANY other religion, it's horrible. If you do it to Christianity, it's ok. WHAT LOGIC IS THERE IN THIS? Just asking for fair play. But today, that is too much to ask? If I could, I would tkae Larry David and beat his head in with a baseball bat. I'd tear him to motherfucking pieces and torch him and his home down. Then I'd beat his trashy assistant. Bloody hate this mofo son of a fucking bitch.

The joke wouldn't have worked with a picture of any religious figure other than Jesus because it plays on the frequent, widely publicized instances of nutty christians 'worshiping' supposed images of Christ on ordinary objects or seeing statues cry or bleed. Remember the Jesus Toast?

Why is accidentally splashing pee on a painting of a (possibly) ficticious character from mythology such a problem? Would anyone be upset if it was a painting of Zeus or Thor? I doubt it. Here's a radical idea - don't watch the show. If your faith is that strong then I'm sure you you can take comfort in your belief that he'll be punished in an afterlife and you'll spend eternity playing harps and lounging about on clouds.

One thing for all so-called "Christians" to keep in mind... Jesus was spit upon, slandered, scourged, nailed to a torture stake... Yet what did he do? (He could of called legions of angels to slaughter his assailants) ... HE PRAYED FOR THEM... HE WAS PEACEABLE... In fact he stayed far removed from politics because he knows the ruler of the world is Satan... (John 14:30-31) . . .I shall not speak much with YOU anymore, for the ruler of the world is coming. And he has no hold on me, 31 but, in order for the world to know that I love the Father, even as the Father has given me commandment [to do], so I am doing. Get up, let us go from here. TRUE Christians are used to being pissed-on, beaten, fed to lions, tortured along side the Jews in Germany... Why? because they are TRUE CHRISTIANS and this world hates them... (John 7:7) . . .The world has no reason to hate YOU, but it hates me, because I bear witness concerning it that its works are wicked. (1 John 3:13-16) 13 Do not marvel, brothers, that the world hates YOU. 14 We know we have passed over from death to life, because we love the brothers. He who does not love remains in death. 15 Everyone who hates his brother is a manslayer, and YOU know that no manslayer has everlasting life remaining in him. 16 By this we have come to know love, because that one surrendered his soul for us; and we are under obligation to surrender [our] souls for [our] brothers. So there are many "fake Jews" and many "fake Christians" so each one of us should look and see where we stand in regard to Jehovah and Jesus lofty guidelines of love, mercy and righteousness...

Hey angry idiots: Curb Your Enthusiasm has shown humorous scenes mocking a variety of religious symbols (which is different from mocking the religion, despite what you people tend to believe), Judiasm most of all. Maybe if you spent less time saying ridiculous things on an internet forum about comedy shows you could spend more time being a better person, which is the supposed point of your religion, no?

Please read the bible. Repent for your sins. God and Jesus love all those who ask for forgiveness. I don't know why this is "funny", but I do guarantee you that if a "comedian" pissed on a Jewish symbol,an Islamic symbol, a "black" symbol (a picture of Barack Obama?), a Hispanic symbol, etc., we would still be hearing about it on all of the mainsteam (fringe?) media outlets. We have reached the point where nothing is shameful when it is done to whites, Christians, conservatives & America. All that is asked is to show the same respect to others as you would have them show you. (The golden rule.) But I guess that's just too much to ask. Sad.

JEWS WHO HATE CHRISTIANS Jewish hate is as old as some ancient Hebrew prophets. Speaking of anti-Semitism, it's Jerry Falwell and other fundy leaders who've gleefully predicted that in the future EVERY nation will be against Israel (an international first?) and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed, right? Wrong! It's the ancient Hebrew prophet Zechariah who predicted all this in the 13th and 14th chapters of his book! The last prophet, Malachi, explains the reason for this future Holocaust that'll outdo even Hitler's by stating that "Judah hath dealt treacherously" and "the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this" and asks "Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother?" Haven't evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the recent filthy, hate-filled, back-stabbing tirades by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard and Kathy Griffin and Larry David) against Sarah Palin and other Christians, and explain why most Jewish leaders have seemingly condoned the continuing "crucifixion" of Christians and even their Leader! While David, Sandra, Kathy and Larry are tragically turning comedy into tragedy, they are also helping to speed up and fulfill the Final Holocaust a la Zechariah and Malachi, thus helping to make the Bible even more believable! (For even more stunning information, visit MSN and type in "Separation of Raunch and State," "Michael the Narc-Angel," "Bible Verses Obama Avoids" and "The Earliest Hate Criminals" to learn even more about Jewish connections!)

As a Jewish woman, I was first shocked that LD got away with this, then I started laughing and haven't stopped for over a week. Maybe only Jews can recognize and appreciate this character as their own, with his dire mishaps as a consequence of his foolish, exaggerated behavior. This is our 'schlemeil.' What's funny is his going way out on a limb to either assert his 'correctness,' or to cover something up, only to be bitten in the butt as a consequence. I think I'm about to have a Larry David moment. On Sunday I passed a display of scarves hanging from some rings outside a store. I was taken with the bright orange color and the gold-threaded musical notes. The clerk came out to assist me and quickly bagged the item. When I got home, I unwrapped the scarf. Then, as I examined the scarf more carefully, I realized that it also says "I Love Jesus." If I tried to give this to a Christian woman as a gift and tried to explain it, I would open myself up to a lot of 'tsooris' and epitomize the LD character.

It is not an issue of Jewish people being so low-class and ugly. It is a matter of those on the left being consistently this way. A practicing Jew would *never, ever do something like this. And for those of you who have made anti-semitic comments here, please remember that Jesus was/is Jewish. He was a good (read: perfect) Jewish boy to His forever wonderful Jewish Mother.

What a pathetic person Larry David is. HBO defending such humor is beyond belief. Jesus died on the cross. How funny is that? Jesus died so that sinners like Mr. David's people, the Jews, could have a relationship with God that they never had before. Isn't that funny? Hell is full of the Mr. Davids of the world, who reject the Father's provision. Sad, pathetic. Even Mr. Savage, a Jew by birth, is outraged. How about some courage from the Jews of the world?

I don't see the humor - nor do I understand why others would think it appropriate to use Him for a punchline.

If I urinated on a picture of Moses or the Star of David on a television show, I would be instantly banned from further broadcasting. Many, many "gentiles" understand that the Jewish media, epitomized by comediens such as Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, believe they have carte blanche to belittle Catholics, Protestants, and Muslims in the broader media and in Hollywood. We will not suffer insults to Catholicism by a group of stale comics ignorant enough to take for granted the ludicrous assertion they are the "chosen people" while at the same time finding the sloppy and broken functions of their aging genitals comical. To profane Christ Jesus or religious imagery of any kind is simply malicious, and contradicts the Jews’ own infamous and aggressive insistence of enforced respect for Jewish images, culture, and history in the most remote instance.

It seems Larry David fears insignificance and is behaving badly for attention. This is quite a mockery, but from the beginning people have mocked our JESUS. Personally I pray GOD bless Larry David with a more sensitive heart in knowing he is significant and loved. As this JESUS died for us all. I also pray that people stop rewarding this bad behavior by paying HBO and watching Larry David. As the choice is ours to support them or cut them off and feed their appetite for attention.

I wasn't offended... I just thought the episode wasn't that funny. It seemed like a stretch to get to the Jesus joke. However, I can see why they weanted to poke fun at the "extreme" Christians who actually do freak out and swoon when they think they see a picture of Mary or Jesus in a potato chip or sandwich (actual stories in the news). This country is freedom of religion and speech, so HBO can do anything they want. The constitution is always used to defend gun toting, so why can't you accept it for this and move on. All the press just gives the show more ratings, which is actually a good thing because it's a great show.

They are not going to sweep this under the carpet. They are going to reshow the episode, make it available on demand, and in 6 months sell the entire season on DVD with the entire episode intact. This episode doesn't offend me, insult me, or shake my faith one bit.

This guy is by all standards ignorant of what can anger people. he is someone who does not believe in god, and there is something special waiting for him when he dies. HBO sucks for showing trash like that.

The crap about how we Christians have to stand for Israel is just that, crap! Their run of being the chosen race ended when they rejected Jesus.

I am a Christian and have always prayed for Israel but I am beginning to realize that perhaps Jews do not respect Christians and that maybe Israel has been unfair to the Palestinians. I have always been Pro-Israel to an extreme but after reading about who controls the media and Hollywood my mind is changing somewhat, sadly.

I canceled HBO today and called HBO Headquarters in New York and told them what I thought. They said, "Thank you for your opinion" in to which I replied, It's not an opinion if the Quran or Torah had been pissed on that backlash would have been much more severe!

typical jewish behavior. this is not suprising, the talmud states what the jews think of jesus, and this is just more of that. if a muslim comedian pissed on the torah, the jewish media would have him banned from the entertainment world. this event is just what, from the jewish controlled media.
