Music icon Pat Boone joined The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday to speak out against a parody recently aired on Saturday Night Live. The SNL skit spoofed the movie God Is Not Dead 2 in an offensive and sacrilegious way.
How did Pat Boone feel about SNL's attempt at humor?
"My feelings right now are not so much anger as sadness for what I fear is ahead for the people that are doing these things," Boone said. "It was such a good show. It was funny. They can be so creative and hilarious without being dirty and sacrilegious. But for some reason, they rouse their audience and the ultra liberal and the kids who have never been taught now what's right so they think it's all this hilarious good fun. But I'd like to ask Lorne Michaels if somebody did a funny sketch and portrayed his mother as a deceased whore, would he find that funny, or would there be some limit to what he and the show can ridicule?"
Glenn and Mr. Boone talked about the need to return to the Constitution.
"I think it was John Adams who said, 'This Republic, this government has been created for a moral and virtuous people. It is wholly inadequate to the governing of any other.'" Boone said.
The pair also discussed the need for the church and pastors to stand up for the Bible and Judeo-Christian values.
"A lot of them are afraid of just losing congregants or losing money now," Glenn said. "And if we don't get our preachers to stand up -- and I mean really stand up -- we're toast. We're just toast."
