Pat Boone, who stars in “God’s Not Dead 2,” says that “Saturday Night Live” missed the mark with their recent “God’s Not Dead 2” parody entitled “God is a Boob Man.”
Christian Today reports the parody skit featured a Christian woman fighting the Jewish American Civil Liberties Union, who demand that she claim “God is gay.” However, the woman appears in court and proclaims, “God is a boob man.”
Boone said the intended comedy skit was sacrilegious.
"God has only one real enemy — Satan,” Boone said. “Satan ridicules faith, and they're taking Satan's side. They're also ridiculing me and the film, telling impressionable young people not to see it because it's ridiculous. Then they throw in that the lawyer is Jewish to make the Christian look even worse, but it's just anti-Semitic."
The actor said that he used to enjoy “SNL,” and was even asked to host in the show’s early years. Boone declined the offer since the show could not promise not to mock his faith and family.
"I know they would have treated me like a complete sap," he said. "I used to love 'SNL.' I'd record it every week. It's gotten filthy, though, so no more."
Boone said he is not demanding a personal apology, but the show’s hosts and writers should repent to God.
"I won't waste my breath demanding an apology. They don't answer to me. They answer to the One they defame, and there are consequences,” he said.
