A few years ago, comedienne Sarah Silverman disparaged God on her Comedy Central program by throwing him out of her apartment the morning after having sex with him.
On Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Silverman expounding on her anti-theism by introducing a new video wherein she offered a solution to solve world hunger: “Sell the Vatican, Feed the World.”
As she chided the Pope for preaching about living humbly despite residing in a “house that is a city,” she advised him that such a noble deed would absolve him of any guilt he might have over his alleged connections to the Holocaust.
More disgracefully, Silverman said, “If you sell the Vatican, and you take that money, and you use it to feed every single human being on the planet, you will get crazy py*” (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript, h/t Mediaite, vulgarity alert):
Think about it, we need a hero, and who is more primed to be our hero than the Pope? He’s literally a caped crusader. What is the Vatican worth, like 500 billion dollars? This is great, sell the Vatican, take a big chunk of that money, build a gorgeous condominium for you and all your friends to live in, all the amenities, swimming pool, tennis court, waterslide, and with the money left over, feed the whole f**king world.
You preach to live humbly, and I totally agree. So, now maybe it’s time for you to move out of your house that is a city.
On an ego level alone, you will be the biggest hero in the history of ever. And by the way, any involvement in the Holocaust, bygones. …]
The bottom line is this: If you sell the Vatican, and you take that money, and you use it to feed every single human being on the planet, you will get crazy py. All the py. I don’t mean that literally. That might not be your cup of tea. I don’t know what your version of all the py is. But you’ll get all the py. Amen.
