Actor Jack Black Prays to Satan on MTV
#11
On an upbeat note, the stand-up comedian Nick Swardson (not condoning all his acts by any means . . .) uses humor to make the point that devil worship is wrong:  "Why would somebody worship the devil?... Has the devil paid off for anybody ever? What was the last award show you saw where somebody won and they came out and they’re like, 'Thank you so much. This is amazing. I got a lot of people to thank. Well, I gotta start out by thanking the man downstairs.'" (http://www.dead-frog.com/comedians/jokes/nick_swardson/) In the rest of this particular act, Swardson seems pretty serious in his rejection of devil worship as stupid and deviant.

Anyway, sorry for being out of the loop but I haven't had a TV since 1999. Is this the same Jack Black who played in comedy films like School of Rock? Say it ain't so. I always liked him. 

Sorry Lisa but thats an affirmative. He hosted something for MTV back in 04 and came bouncing on stage with a John Kerry T-Shirt ::) I've never been a huge fan of him I did think he did a good job in King Kong though considering he is usually just comedy.

Doesn't surprise me at all for MTV, or for Jack Black, with some of the songs he's written. Too bad, because I did like "School of Rock."

I saw an interesting analysis of all the occult/Masonic/Satanic themes that went on this year at the Video Music Awards.  Some of the things pointed out might be reaching, but I think it's a bit eerie how so many parts of the awards ceremony fell in line with this analysis (including the Jack Black Satan prayer).

Since legitimate prayer would be done in earnest, it would make sense that Satanic prayers would be made in jest.  Humor seems to be one of these things that people think carries absolution with it.  That's why the culture constantly uses sitcoms and stand up comedians to introduce the next major degenerating vice.  They then move onto dramas like Law and Order where the degenerate is the victim of the closed-minded criminals that can't get with the times because of their "conservatism." 

I think God has a sense of humor though and when He judges people for jokes, He says, "Boy that was funny.  You're still going to Hell but don't worry about it.  It definitely WAS funny.  Why the surprised look?  Where did I say that being hilarious was the great commission?  Now don't dither about with the begging and pleading, you had your chance and you made sinful jokes instead.  Go on...get down there." 

Spot on, Gerard.

Jack Black is Jewish. That should be enough information for an un-Judaized traditional Catholic.

That is downright disturbing. I tuned out MTV about 25 years ago.. and this having barely "tuned in." Good thing, too!

This is a brilliant observation.  Dirty comedians have been wearing us down as a culture for a while now, and long-term exposure to vulgar humor raises our tolerance to immoral topics.

I've recently had the misfortune of catching a few spots of some prominent comedians (most happen to be Jewish) who make jokes about pedophilia and incest.  And people laugh!  Is it any wonder Roman Polanski is being defended by the Hollywood elite?  We are rapidly increasing our level of perversion as a society.

I never knew he was a jew. That explains it a secular Jew. Surprised he isnt praying to Isreal.

A Fish for that.....there are even fewer no-TVers than Trad Catholics.  None for me since '95.  Isn't it GREAT?

You ever watch any TV shows, reruns, or broadcasts on Youtube or Hulu?
