Sarah Silverman has never been big on Christianity or Christians, but in a recent trailer for her show on Hulu, “I Love You, America,” she not only refers to Christians as “motherf**kers,” but also calls the Christian God “Allah.”
The trailer begins with an ominous male voice, who introduces himself not as God, but tells Silverman to call him “Allah.” The voice continues, “I will send you to hell for eternity if you murder, steal, do guy-on-guy butt sex.”
“That’s true?” Silverman asks. “You really put people in hell for eternity if they put their penis in an anus?”
“Sarah, take a chill pill, I’m kidding. I created gay people,” the voice responds.
“Oh phew! You got me. You’re a real son of a gun, God,” Silverman says.
“God”, who has speaking to Silverman corrects her saying, “Ah, call me Allah.”
Silverman looks straight into the camera and says, “Hey, everyone frantically typing emails about how I’m once again disrespecting the Christian God,” she prods. “Guess what, motherfuckers?”
In a January 2007 interview with then-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel for Esquire magazine, Silverman says, “I don’t believe in Jesus or God. But I do believe that fundamentalists in religion or anything else are bad, and that they have more hate than love. Jesus’ words have become so perverted over time — it’s been like a game of telephone. If he existed, Jesus would fuckin’ kill himself.”
Then of course, you have the infamous one liner from her 2005 stand-up performance “Jesus is Magic,” Silverman says, “I hope the Jews did kill Christ. I’d do it again. I’d f**king do it again, in a second.”
