Humorless Catholics could be mad at Larry David



It's safe to say Catholics may not be the biggest fans of Larry David, since Sunday's episode of Curb Your Enthusiam involved urine splashing on a painting of Jesus. Who woulda thunk David had a penchant for being rude, demeaning and offensive?

"I don't think it's funny," publisher Deal Hudson told Fox News. "Why is it that people are allowed to publicly show that level of disrespect for Christian symbols? If the same thing was done to a symbol of any other religions — Jewish or Muslim — there'd be a huge outcry. It's simply not a level playing field."

The plot in question involved Larry's assistant believing her mother's painting of Jesus is crying because of Larry's unfortunate backsplash. And of course, that's the MOST SHOCKING THING EVAR!!!1!!

"Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire," HBO told E!. "Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious."

Indeed, disrespecting religion is a favorite pastime for David. Did you guys never see Seinfeld?
