Would Larry David Urinate on the Koran? – by Jamie Glazov

In a recent Curb Your Enthusiasm episode, Larry David accidentally urinates on a picture of Jesus while he is a guest in someone else’s home. This, in turn, leads to a misunderstanding in which the homeowners think they have a miraculously weeping Jesus.

Some Christians are understandably upset.

Just some thoughts on what this episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm has revealed:

Are producers of this show, or Larry David, or anyone else connected to it fearing for their lives right now? Are there Christian groups calling for the death of anyone in connection to this episode?

In comparison, let us say, to the Muhammad cartoons riots and death threats, what does this say about Islam and Christianity? Which faith is a Religion of Peace and which one is not?

Would the producers of this show have just as easily allowed a scene in which Larry David urinates on a Koran? He couldn’t urinate on a picture of Muhammad because we all know that making a representation of Muhammad gets you an immediate death sentence. So we have to settle for the Holy Book. But how much does anyone want to bet that this would never be allowed?

Question: Why in our culture is urinating on Jesus easily permitted but urinating on the Koran is simply unthinkable? What does this signify?

And why is it that the people who right now are rolling their eyes and saying that Christians should get a life because this is freedom of expression, the same ones who would be up in arms if Larry David had done the same thing to the Koran? They are the ones who blamed the artists of the Muhammad cartoons for provoking and upsetting Muslims. They are the ones who argue that, when it comes to the sensibilities of Muslims, free speech has limits. If Curb Your Enthusiasm had an episode in which Larry David urinated on a Koran, they would be on the front lines saying that this is Islamophobia and that we must be sensitive to the feelings of Muslims, etc. It would be deemed as hate speech. There would be lawsuits and the show would be cancelled and David’s career would be over.

HBO has come to the defense of the episode, saying that it is all about parody. Everyone needs to lighten up. So, if Larry David urinated on the Koran, would HBO tell everyone they need to lighten up because it is parody? What does it say that we know for a fact that the latter would simply never happen?

What meaning and lesson do we draw from this?

    The lesson is simple: Some religious, racial, ethnic, and political groups can be ridiculed and offended with impunity; others cannot. The arbitrary rules are drawn up by a politically correct, purely result-oriented ilk who have apparently succeeded in imposing their twisted worldview onto the rest of us.

    Why didn't Larry David piss on a torah (old testament) or talmud? Or why aren't there broadway shows called 'Jerry Springer' which feature Moses wrapped up in a diper? Why is it usually only Christianity treated like this? I'll tell you why. Because not every one is a degenerate! Just because you christians get fooled by this crap of 'freedom of expression' doesn't mean the rest of us should/will. The jewish religion isn't insulted because jews respect it and have taken action so that others have to too. They've got you goyim by your uncircumcised privates. Try this 'freedom of expression' shit on judaism and see how quickly you get slapped with an anti-semetism charge. Muslims too respect their religion and aren't like a pack of hyienas who'll laugh at any old shit. Freedom of expression? What about expression of respect?! Christianity hasn't evolved to take humour. They're the retard children of world religions who laugh at the joke the other kid tells about why YOUR mommy has her legs up in the air every morning after daddy leaves for work; she was praying so that Jesus can pick her up and take her to heaven……But it wasn't easy for Jesus because the postman was on top of her keeping her down! Christians are degenerates! Just because you eat your own shit (thinking that your modern and evolved) doesn't mean the rest of the other religions have to eat shit too.

    response to Timmy

    hahaha U wanna stop Islam from spreading in the west????? What a joke LOL. U cant do this no one can stop people from following the truth no one has the power to do this. So keep dreaming OK?

    U're stupid cuz u think the Qur'an offends Jesus!! Jesus is considered one of the GREATEST prophets of God. Just like how we think of Mohammad. I'm sorry can u remind me which religion doesnt believe in him even as a prophet? oh right Judaism! Arent they the same people who brag about killing Jesus?? Yes they are but u're too busy with ur hate towards Islam than relizing who have been truly offensive towards Jesus (peace be upon him)

    u're also stupid cuz u say “God (not Allah)” cuz u're basically saying “God (not God)”. I know u're close minded and maybe uneducated as well. but open ur mind and read this carefully in order not to make a fool out of urself in the future. “Allah” is the Arabic word for God. Even the Arab Christians and Jews say “Allah” when they refer to God!!!!!

    u're also stupid cuz u think CAIR did what they did to defend Christianity. No u're wrong we defend Jesus because we LOVE Jesus. We think of him exactly like we think of Mohammad. They're both great messengers of Allah!

    It's funny how most of u defend “freedom of speech” and at the same time demanding that Islam shudnt be allowed to spread in the west??? what kind of freedom is this? I've never seen such public hypocracy!

    I'm tired of u blaming us for 9/11. u're just too busy victimizing urself not relizing that we're victims of that as well. Just look at some statistics of how many civilians and policemen were killed in terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, etc. Al-qa'eda is our enemy too! Islam never asks anyone to kill innocent people!!! They're just using Islam to manipulate young people who do not have full understanding of Islam and bring them to their side. They kill cuz they want power. They want to rule the world!!! Islam has nothing to do with what the talibans do!

    It's basically the same with what the whites used to do to blacks in the name of christianity! does that mean that they were following the teachings of the bible??!
