Family Guy is no stranger to bashing Christianity and Sunday night’s Christmas episode on Fox, “How the Griffin Stole Christmas,” was no exception, featuring Jesus not only mocked but kicked at the nativity. Although the Griffin family longs to go sledding, Lois tells them to get ready so they can attend church. Peter rudely objects, proclaiming Jesus Himself loved sledding, calling it His “second passion”—obviously cheapening the passion of Christ, the period of suffering Jesus underwent leading up to His death on the cross for our sins.
Lois: All right. You guys ready for church?
Peter: Church? What are you, an idiot? It’s the first snow of the season. We’re going sledding.
Chris: Please, can we, Mom?
Lois: Well, I mean, it’s Sunday, and …
Peter: Come on, Lois. After all, sledding was the second passion of the Christ.
Jesus: Eat this, for this is my dust! CONTINUE
