A couple of offensive videos
Two videos today, both eliciting negative reactions of a religious nature.
The first from Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm which has got the Catholic League’s wannabe Irishman Bill Donahue in a righteous lather. In this clip, Larry, who is on meds which make him urinate with great force, visits a Catholic friend (watch 1st 2 minutes):
Was Larry David always this crude? Would he think it comedic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother? This might be fun to watch, but since HBO only likes to dump on Catholics (it was just a couple of weeks ago that Sarah Silverman insulted Catholics on “Real Time with Bill Maher”), and David is Jewish, we’ll never know.
The other vid is an ad for the German lingerie producer, Liaison Dangereuse, in which a woman dons a niqab over her sexy underwear:
This prompted a Norwegian religion historian to brand the ad “provoking” because it links the niqab with sexuality, rather than morals and virtue.
Hanne Nabintu Herland does not realise that the niqab has the effect of reducing a human being to a purely sexual object.
