Stand up for Kathy

Okay, kind of a dirty little secret here: I like Kathy Griffin and her TV show. Of course, a lot of what I like about her is how outspoken she is about the war, women's rights, censorship, and being an atheist.

So she won an Emmy this week, which is great, and she'll be on TV Saturday night.

Sort of. You see, some people were offended by her speech, so they've already said they're going to censor her speech when it airs. You won't get to hear what she said, and if you read most news sources you won't get to see it either, so here it is:

". . .[A] lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim, "Suck It, Jesus. This award is my god now!"

If you believe in Jesus, maybe the person you should really be offended by is the guy who thanks him for letting him hit a home run when maybe he should be busy stopping that hurricane that's about to wipe out cities, kill innocent babies, and spread disease and devastation for miles, but hey, what do I know?

If you believe in free speech, maybe you should sign this online petition.
