Wingnuts Slam “Anti-Christian Bigot” Seth Meyers Over Piece On North Carolina’s Hate Law [VIDEO]

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.”

    The self-satisfied Christianists ought to be asking themselves why Christianity is getting bad press – oh, that’s right, they don’t like US, they are fine with the quiet congregation down the street that does the homeless ministry.

    • Octavio

      They aren’t even content to leave the quiet congregation down the street alone. In the 80s I volunteered for an MCC church’s Feed-the-homeless outreach on Saturdays and Sundays. The dominant church filed a complaint with the State Department of Health that we all weren’t wearing hair nets. We were handing out sealed boxed lunches. But according to the Dept. of Health handing out food made us food handlers. We all got permits and started wearing hair nets. The Dept of Health showed up and said the lunches weren’t kept cool enough in the shade and the contents inside those boxes might be prone to bacteria. They closed us down four or five times. The MCC quit handing out food at the park where the homeless were and opened up their church kitchen, serving meals indoors. A few weeks later some evangelical bitch was serving food at our previous location in the park with the homeless. She had big open trays of lasagna, spaghetti, tuna casserole — all made at home and not kept at temperature in the open air. No one ever bothered her. But the MCC caught all the shit because, well, it was the “gay” church. Nope. The good christains won’t leave us alone. We’re all they have left to complain about, ’cause we be abominations — or bombing nations — or some such shit.

      • Henri205

        Thanks for trying, Octavio.

      • Jay George

        That just breaks my heart. Pretty sure that’s not what Jesus would do either. 🙁

  • sherman

    I’ve started recording his show just so I can catch his set at the beginning. It is often quite good.

    • Octavio

      Great minds think alike. I have as well. 🙂

  • Luther Kreiger

    So was he “humorless” or a “smart aleck”? Learn to proofread, you ideological hacks.

    Also “smeared the Last Supper as bland?” What the fuck? You can say with a straight face that this sort of thing is what really gets your cross-patterned knickers in a twist? Utterly pathetic.

    • David L. Caster

      That lot is pathetic all on their own without provocation.

    • Todd20036

      Hey, I worked all night to cook that last supper!!! BOO HOO HOO!!!!

      • grada3784

        Next time, use a lot more of the bitter herbs. And no excuses that you can’t find any one named Herb.

    • Mark

      Needed more salt and oregano.

      • Henri205

        A touch of Mrs Dash. We’re on a low sodium diet here.

    • Hank

      The “Last Supper” was actually a Passover Sedar! How many of them have actually eaten plain matzoh or gefilte fish (without horseradish)??? They have no idea what truly bland is!!!

      • Henri205

        You read ‘The Winds of War’ and/or the sequel. I never understood ‘The Last Supper’ until I read those books. Illuminating.

    • Henri205

      ‘Smart Aleck’ Such an old and tired attempt at an insult. What assholes these people are.

      • Luther Kreiger

        Yeah really, when used in earnest it almost always means “uncomfortable truth teller” anyway. Just a way for a daddy figure to keep his subordinates from pointing out his failure to practice what he preaches or hypocrisy.

    • Eric in Oakland

      And I thought they hated political correctness? If they were consistent they would have no problem with telling jokes about Christians (not that I think he was doing that. I’m just acknowledging their claim).

  • popebuck1

    And of course, Meyers being Jewish is the elephant in the room. Nothing like a little casual anti-Semitism to spice up the homophobia.

    • Steverino

      And the term referring to him as “anti-Christian” as in Anti-Christ. Hint…hint…hint…

    • KCMC

      “he does not consider himself Jewish,” (1 grandfather) wife is.

    • Hank

      In truth, they still have not forgiven “us” for Christ’s crucifixion, no matter how much history has been “corrected”.

      • Chucktech

        Honestly, I wish you guys hadn’t crucified Him. If you hadn’t, there’d be no such thing as “Christians.” Jesus just would have grown old and tired and yelled at kids to get off His piece of desert…

    • Octavio

      Hmmmm . . . according to his parents he’s Presbetarianistic.

  • teeveedub

    Proving yet again that right wing bigots have no sense of humor.

    I’m pretty sure Seth can withstand their criticism.

    • David L. Caster

      His ratings probably just ticked up.

  • sherman

    Take it away Maria-

  • thesunnysideofthestreet

    Condemnation by wingnut emails and teabagger “news” sites is a badge of honor. Seth should wear it proudly.

  • sherman

    Well, I guess this proves that we are indeed laughing at them, not laughing with them.

    • Octavio

      Yup.

  • bkmn

    They sure do hate being exposed for what they are.

    Nope. Not “anti-Christian”, but anti-anti-LGBT. There is a difference. There are LGBT & pro-LGBT Christians & under the 1st amendment they are Christians if THEY say so, not because reich-wing Christians violating Matthew 7 say so. Get over it & get a life that actually provides something of value to this world.

    P.S. This is a violation of Seth Myers freedom of religion & speech. Oh right, only reich-wing “Christians” are allowed to say & do whatever they want to and about whomever they want. Also Hitler would be proud of Newsbastards…. I mean “busters”:

    • DaveW

      Well, I am anti Christian. LGBT versions? Pathetic. Women too
      The NALTS? Simple question: why are you supporting a lie that everyone else uses to justify how they already feel? We al know it cannot be true, why join?

      The charitable type of Christian is charitable. Christian is a different thing that they are.

      • Sean

        For the same reason that there were Christians on both sides of the Civil Rights & Women’s Rights movements. The Same reason why there are Muslims who love ISIS & Muslims who disagree with ISIS. They interpret their religion the way they want and feel. I don’t care how they interpret it as long as they are not forcing, demanded, or requiring me to adhere to it & are not harming other people. That is religious freedom. The only difference between the wingnuts attacking Seth Myers and ISIS is the lack of violence by the former (for now).

        • JCF

          And the same way there are anti-theists like Joe Jervis, and like Mao. To me, the difference is whether one would kill for their belief-system.

    • DaveW

      No it’s not, they are not the government limiting his speech just commenting. First amendment has nothing to do with this story

      • Sean

        I was mocking the religious-reich who are the ones who first started saying that slamming reich-wing bigots is a violation of their religious freedom & speech (see boycott of Chick-fil-A, Duck DyNASTY, Benham Bigots, Duggars just to name a few).

    • Gene

      to be fair, he was
      1) not actually Christian, but interested in using it to his ends (and great men like Rev. Niemoeller “fist they came for the Communists..” fought him..others, gave in to his racist bullshit, to their eternal shame, they changed so much of what they professed, for purely nationalist pride/bigotry)
      2) not actually a socialist. I am not a socialist. Not impressed by them. But I get really really tired of right wing conservatives saying “National SOCIALIST!”..see! the NAZI’s were Socialists! uh…see #1 above. Nope. claiming a title dont make it so. Pres. Holland Of France is a socialist. Hitler was a fascist pig, NOT a socialist.
      3) any quote by Hitler…assume he is twisting a truth/good thing/fact to serve an evil agenda. it was his MO

      • Goodboy

        I hate using the Hitler thing but damn they sure have allot in common with him.

        • TuuxKabin

          Yes, they do share that task. /s

        • Harley

          Yes and we must continue to remind them of that fact on a daily basis.

      • Rrhain

        Hitler was actually Christian. That he including some Germanic paganism into it doesn’t change that fact. He was Christian.

        Please, let us not play the “No True Scotsman” fallacy.

      • pepón

        We have to remember Niemoeller was en exception, and by far, not the rule.

  • boatboy_srq

    Wow. That one wingnutty proponent in GA. “I’m not an attorney….” Dude, you’re proposing legislation that gives guidance to attorneys and judges statewide and that’s your “out” for difficult questions?

    Oh, right, job qualifications for public sector positions are for Democrats. I forgot.

  • Octavio

    I just posted the following over at Newbusters:

    “I thought Seth Meyer’s rant was very funny and characterized NC and other southern states very well. What could possibly be wrong with poking fun at the truth?”

          • Octavio

            I’m not sure the leather is Corinthian, but it’s soft and buttery. 🙂

    • Cuberly

      Uh oh, you busted their “news”! 😉

      • Octavio

        I’ve received a couple of comments that I’m a bigot. 🙂

        • Cuberly

          Mission Accomplished! (But fer realz.)

    • Gene

      Brilliant 🙂
      the Christocrats (not the average, I have other things to do than pick on my gay neighbors, Christian like Gov Deal, who pointed out the world is changing, time to adjust to it) HATE being mocked. they loath it. In their pride, they still think they should be making ALL the rules for the rest of us who do agree with them. Its sinking in that they dont rule any more, and being laughed at just burns them to the bone.

          FLAGGED

    • D. J.

      In their lengthy screed, they never accused Myers of lying…..because he didn’t.

    • I’ve often wondered about this–do you ever get any blowback (and not “blow” in a fun way) from any of the haters when you post like this? Not related to this specifically, but I’ve heard from other authors that some crazed pissed off fans will start stalking them and leaving rants on review sites that then can crush sales. Are you protected by just using what most would consider a first name (or what a lot of haters think of as your “Christian” name) so they can’t easily trace you and find your facebook and other social media reality?

      • Octavio

        The only crazed person I’ve ever had a problem with is the one, whose name shall not be written, who stalks everyone on JMG. Odd, that.

  • M Jackson

    Tried to post a comment on Newsbusters with a link to Kevin Swanson’s rally but I forgot I’ve been banned. I have a hard time remembering all the teabilly sites I’m banned at, mainly for saying unkind things about Mrs. Palin, and telling one guy to ‘kiss my rosy red pucker hole’ which I know will get you banned at WND and Barbwire. At least Breitbart continues to allow me to sling my feces at the other chimps in their sewer.

    • kaydenpat

      Shocked!! I thought Conservatives were all about free speech.

  • Blake Jordan

    Not the funniest stuff ever, but where were the lies?

  • Alan43

    Myers is right, there’s nothing in the Gospels, the foundation of Christianity, about gays. There IS an awful lot about giving away possessions and sharing things equally, but for some reason the right wing never emphasizes that…

    • customartist

      Greedy people cannot claim the title of “Christian”

    • Robert Conner

      Here’s something else Christians never emphasize for some reason:

      “For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let the one who is able to receive this receive it.” (Matthew 19:12)

      I’m still waiting for a Christian leader to exercise his faith and cut his balls off, but evidently there are no Christian men ‘who are able to receive it.’ Like everything else in Jesusland, it’s all talk and no walk.

  • metrored

    Seth Meyers is probably my favorite late night host. Though that may change if I get cable. Samantha Bee’s youtube clips are amazing.

    • popebuck1

      Stephen Colbert is still wonderful, but he hasn’t had the overwhelming emphasis on politics so far that he had on his old show. I get the distinct feeling that Colbert is keeping his powder dry, playing nice to placate the network and waiting until closer to the election to pull out his most devastating material.

      • customartist

        Oh GOD I hope so!

      • metrored

        It’s funny that you mention the network because part of the reason why I haven’t seen much of his show is that CBS wants you to pay a stand alone subscription fee to see most of there stuff online. I don’t care about acronym crime procedurals or diorama comedies so there is no way for me to make it worth my while.

        • Paige Turner

          “I don’t care about acronym crime procedurals or diorama comedies”

          So well put. Thanks. Im stealing this.

          Here in Australia we suffer the same network low brow garbage but its mainly reality shows. As a friend of mine says

          “I cannot watch another show about fat bogans (rednecks) singing, dancing, cooking and renovating houses”

          • metrored

            I’m not gonna lie. I’m sometimes tempted to tune in to Hawaii 5-0 in the hope of catching a Daniel Dae Kim in a love scene. As much as there is to complain about some American TV, at least we can count on a minimum quotient of hot people to look at. I’m surprised you wouldn’t be able to say the same thing about Australian TV since we import so many of our attractive people from your country.

          • Paige Turner

      Panties in a bunch.
      Knickers in a twist.
      Underalls all over all.

      Let’s keep this going, I’m in a mood.

      • McSwagg

        Under-roos in a pouch?

  • DaveW

    Only liberals laugh at funny jokes? Only conservatives are nutty Christians? This is so stupid, mixing cult and politics and requiring/assuming an even split of two sides. So stupid.

    Plus since religion is a chosen activity and not a characteristic it seems unlikely to be able to be an anti chrstian bigot.

    I guess peta are anti carnivore bigots? I am against Christianity and hope people get help, but My bigotry if you can call it that is only against the stupidity that buys it and of course the peddlers

    But if people educate themselves and stop funding hate, I have no prejudices against them. Still struggle to call anti Christian stance as bigoted

    • Bj Lincoln

      There are good christians. They are not bigots and are LGBT welcoming. The issue I have is they are NOT as loud as the bad ones so people often forget they are around. Maybe they should speak up and help us instead of just praying.

      • customartist

        Birds of a feather worship together.
        People who stand by while others are beaten up by their fellow congregants, and while supposedly not being of the same mindset, are NOT my friends.

      • popebuck1

        As Dan Savage likes to say, if the NALT (“not all like that”) Christians don’t speak up and proactively take back Christianity from the haters, they have no one to blame but themselves if people DO conclude that Christians ARE “all like that.” Silence is the equivalent of a vote in favor.

      • Henri205

        There are some good Christians. They’re rare but out there.

      • Robert Conner

        I am quite content for Westboro Baptists, all 30 of them, to be the de facto spokesloons for Christianity which is, after all, a religion with a history of at least 18 centuries of homicidal violence, book burning, and support for slavery, genocide and colonialism.

    Good for Meyers for highlighting the ridiculous of “religious freedom” laws which are just excuses for anti-gay discrimination.

  • I don’t honestly see why the christeaters have their panties in such a wad. Seth simply laid out FACTS.

    Oh wait….

  • Curieux Bleu

    It is not the supporters of equality and tolerance that are the bigots.

    It is in INTOLERANT CHRISTIANS who are the BIGOTS. And they cannot turn that fact on its head by whining about Jesus, who has never showed up in person anywhere to clarify his intentions as regards treating people with dignity, respect and equality.

    And I am sure Jesus IS or WOULD be ASHAMED of his so-called “Christian” followers”. ” Christians” in name only who have fought a vicious culture war against the human rights of LGBT, ( and women and blacks and other minorities.)
    And have LOST that WAR.

    Because they are FALSE adherents, that is to say FAKE CHRISTIANS as shown by their behaviour and total lack of true CHARITY, and NO they are not “Saved by Jesus” or given immunity from the task of acting like decent civilised citizens who are prepared to live and let live. AND DECENCY INCLUDES letting people take a pee when nature demands it in whatever facility they feel safe and comfortable.
