Pamela Anderson, the silicon enhanced sex tape star and Playboy centerfold, will be playing the Virgin Mary in a sketch comedy show that will appear on the Comedy Network and in Canada.
Anderson will play the mother of Jesus opposite comedian Russell Peter Joseph in a mock manger scene in a comedy sketch Christmas special. CTV described the special as Peters’ “irreverent twist” on the Christmas special.
But I have to wonder – what’s the twist? There’s no twist to irreverence anymore. It’s been done and overdone.
Irreverence is so commonplace that it’s now the norm.
Honestly, how is it an “irreverent twist” when nobody’s making reverent Christmas specials anymore? You want to shock us, show a little reverence. But I fear that too many of us have forgotten how to feel or show reverence. It’s not so much that we’ve forgotten how to worship, it’s just that we’re worshiping all the wrong things.
