Sarah Silverman Spurs Outrage — Surprise — By Calling Jesus ‘Gender Fluid’

For those who are students of comedian Sarah Silverman’s take-no-prisoners humor, this one seems almost tame.

On Christmas Day, just as the sun was coming up, Silverman posted these words on Twitter and Facebook: “MERRY CHRISTMAS! Jesus was gender fluid!”

She’s been trending on social media ever since.

One critic scolded on Twitter: “Have some respect.”

Another social media wag challenged her to say something about Islamic holidays.

Silverman has hit out at Christmas in the past, including in the video,

And at Jesus, specifically with 2005’s film, “Jesus is Magic.”

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Jesus was gender fluid!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
