LARRY THE COURAGEOUS

Posted by Andrew Roman on October 28, 2009

In the name of equality – which is a value unparalleled to a liberal (as opposed to, say, liberty) – I trust that trailblazing writer/comedian Larry David will beckon the courage to be true to his edgy, ground-breaking self and figure out some way to step out beyond the hackneyed, trite world of Christian-bashing and take a walk on the real wild side.

If anyone can break free from the constraints of conventionality, it is Larry David.

If anyone can show the world that, in the name of artistry, the Qur’an and human urine actually do mix, it is he.

From Fox News:

Larry DavidComedian Larry David is under attack from critics who say he pushed the mocking of religion and Christian belief in miracles over the edge in the latest episode of his HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which the cable network defended as “playful.”

On the show’s most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ, causing a woman to believe the painting depicts Jesus crying.

In a statement to Foxnews.com, HBO downplayed the controversy.

“Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire,” the statement read. “Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious.”

Indeed, nothing tickles the ribs more than peeing on a religious Christian painting.

Cutting edge.

Incidentally, I missed the episode where playful Larry David accidentally sneezes on a depiction of Muhammad while strolling past a mosque. Talk about madcap hyjinx.

And I hear the show where the Qur’an is accidentally defaced by vomit and fecal metter is one of the great all-time knee-slappers.

The irony is, Larry David – a secular leftist with obvious contempt for all religion – is inadvertently demonstrating why, in the real world, creating moral equivalencies between different religions and value sets is untenable.
