Louis C.K. Offends Religious & Atheist Alike
Louis C.K. – Monologue – SNL – Hilarious Stand-Up Comedy 2014
Louis C.K. starred on SNL this week. In his monologue he pokes fun at social issues such as Obama being the first black President, Women’s rights and the most controversial of the night: Religion. He begins by lightly teasing those who believe there’s a God saying, “Maybe there’s a God. There’s no heaven.” He continues by playing the role of God saying, “I’m supposed to make a whole universe and another whole place for afterwards?” The crowd all laughs. Then he switches to the ladder argument,“Some people think that they know that there isn’t a God. That’s a weird thing to know.” Then he goes on,“Did you look everywhere? I haven’t seen 12-Years A Slave yet, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” And of course, religious groups as well as non-religious have taken offense. Yet, there’s an element of intelligence and truth to C.K.’s jokes that makes his monologues irresistible.
