As reported earlier, Pam Anderson has been cast as the Virgin Mary in Russell Peters's new, comedic Christmas special.

And Catholics are PISSED!

Peters defends his casting choice of Anderson as many Catholic protestors go back to Anderson's more horizontal past of sex tapes and nude modeling.

The comedian went on to say the following about his casting choice of Pam:

I didn't even think of the other side of Pam Anderson which is so long ago, it's like come on, give the chick a break already…

We had written the sketch and we didn't know who we were putting in it and we thought, hey, Pam Anderson is Canadian, we can use more Canadian people in this show.

A Russell Peters Christmas Special is set to air on Canadian TV during December.

    I'm not religious, but once again we see Hollywood liberals to using christianity as the butt of their jokes.Like so brave and daring and avant garde right? Why do they never use Mohammed instead huh? We all know the reason why…..

    What do Catholics not get pissed about? Oh I know, priests being pedophiles. That's all fine and dandy with them.

    The mistake many make is that tacky isn't synonymous with comedy. Such devices are used by hacks and bad art students. Pam Anderson as the Virgin Mary is about as creative (and funny) and a kid thinking that putting boogers on the family's pizza is brilliant.

    If I recall correctly, seems like she spent more time sucking dick than on her back.

    Lets not forget that you can suck dick and still be a virgin.

    Pam's looking a little old and used up in this pic…

    Re: Shaniqua Jones – Yes, yes, yes and yes. Christian icons are open targets in the media.

    I'm the farthest thing from a practicing Catholic (i was never christened), but I don't blame some Catholics for being offended. At least they handle their discontent in a civilized manner, unlike OTHER religious groups that throw molotov cocktails and make bomb threats (you all know whom i'm referring to)!

    I guess that couldn't have found a dirtier, skankier whore to play the part. Just another way for fucked up hollyweird to bash Christians!!! Screw them all!

    I'm Catholic, my husband is Catholic and both of our children are baptized.
    I don't understand why people would get so worked up about this…either about Pam Anderson playing Mary or about a comedy about Christmas. Is it tacky, sure. Is it likely going to be a terrible movie, of course. But it seems like we've totally lost the ability to laugh at ourselves. People are so worried about this he said this about me or what I believe in garbage…who cares?!?! If you're comfortable with you are and what you believe, then why does it matter? If you don't like it…then don't watch. There are far worse things out there than a little Christmas spoof.

    Re: JD80 – Exactly what's wrong with america… .let's just be so overly tolerant that we get wiped out in posterity. If you haven't noticed….. ALL CHRISTIANS are under attack moron. Maybe one day if you're lucky, your mooslim rulers will take pity of you and just kill you quickly.

    Re: Shelah – I SO agree with this poster. I'm so sick of being tolerant about every fucking thing on earth. I'm done with whores.



  16. 16

    OMG! Piggy! That would have been an excellent job for BRISTOL PALIN! She's really not a virgin, but could play one on teevee.



  17. 17

    ITS suppose to be COMEDY people… Im catholic and a think collectively certain catholics need to relax. Its for ENTERTAINMENT purposes..

    Everyone can relax - it's for 'Canadian TV' and will probably air on the CBC (and no one watches that). Russel Simmons mostly appeals to the minority audience (East Indians, Muslims, & Blacks) so it won't be seen by a mass audience. Just like most Canadian programming…it will air, 3 people will watch, and it'll go away into obscurity - no harm, no foul.

    Re: 7tizz – Damn, why can't we edit posts like every other forum on the internet? *Russel 'Peters' is who I meant instead of Simmons.
