Last night Late Show host Seth Meyers delivered a great take on the anti-LGBT bills in North Carolina and Georgia. Watch below. Meyers’ bit already has right wing sites denouncing him as an anti-Christian bigot. Because of course. Via the wingnut Newsbusters:
Days after he smeared the Last Supper as bland and ruled the didn’t [sic] blame Judas for betraying Jesus, NBC’s Late Night host Seth Meyers spent over seven minutes early Thursday morning viciously berating and decrying conservatives backing religious freedom laws in Georgia and North Carolina as segregationists alongside Christians, Chick-fil-A, and North Carolina Republican Governor Pat McCrory.
Meyers began the truly humorless rant by whining that both would “discriminate against LGBTQ people, but the governors in those states, both Republican, dealt with those bills in two very different ways.”
After reminding viewers of last year’s Supreme Court ruling, Meyers lamented that “opponents at LGBTQ equality argue[d] that they could just ignore or disobey the ruling” and was illustrated by “Kentucky’s anti-gay rights Cathy cartoon Kim Davis.”
The anti-Christian host played a clip of Georgia Republican Governor Nathan Deal explaining his reservations about the bill since “what the New Testament teaches us is, that Jesus reached out to those who were considered the outcast.”
Being the smart aleck that he’s always been, Meyers provided this short lecture to Christianity that had the liberal audience laughing hysterically: “Yeah, that’s the New Testament. You need to read the New New Testament, where Jesus is opposed to same sex marriages, teachers unions, financial reform, and ObamaCare.”
