Pat Boone Just Slammed ‘SNL’ For ‘Diabolical’ Skit Mocking The Christian Faith

Pat Boone wasn’t laughing when “Saturday Night Live” aired a skit that poked fun at Christianity and Kim Davis.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Monday, the 81-year-old actor — who stars in “God’s Not Dead 2” — said it was “outright sacrilege.”
“God has a sense of humor,” Boone said. “Why else would he invent the porcupine and the giraffe? Something can be devilishly funny, but this skit is diabolical.”
“God has only one real enemy — Satan. Satan ridicules faith, and they’re taking Satan’s side. They’re also ridiculing me and the film, telling impressionable young people not to see it because it’s ridiculous. Then they throw in that the lawyer is Jewish to make the Christian look even worse, but it’s just anti-Semitic.”
Boone said he was once asked to host the show.
“I asked them to promise that they wouldn’t make fun of my faith or my family, and they wouldn’t do it, so I declined,” he said. “I know they would have treated me like a complete sap. I used to love ‘SNL.’ I’d record it every week. It’s gotten filthy, though, so no more.”
He said “SNL” should apologize for the skit.
