Fast-fading ’90s hunk actor and noted dim bulb Kevin Sorbo continues to try to explain his Jews Killed Jesus comment. As you may recall, previously Sorbo told jews, “News bulletin: you did kill Jesus!,” which started the whole controversy. But instead of apologizing for being an idiot, he tried to walk it back with:
After all, [Jesus] was Jewish and … the Jewish leaders and a handful of Jews [gave him up],” Sorbo said. “It was more like they were accomplices to his murder. They knew he was going to be murdered. There was no question.”
Oh, well that’s different. Jews are only accomplices to Jeebus’ murder.
And then, because he still could not leave it alone or apologize, he again tried to clear things up:
“And here’s another flash bulletin,” Sorbo said, “that was what was supposed to happen. That was the intention of God. Jesus came down here to die for our sin, right? So that’s the way it happened … Don’t tell me that the Jewish population at the time, the Pharisees, didn’t have a hand in something to do with Jesus’ death. I mean, come on!”
So now it is everyone else’s fault for not understanding that Sorbo only meant it in the best way that the Jews killed Jesus as part of God’s plan? Nice save, Slick.
Which brings us to our latest round of explanation: it was all a joke, he tells Alan Colmes:
SORBO: I wasn’t trying to say that Jewish people had a hand in the death of Jesus because quite clearly many mourned his death at the time he was being crucified. There was no question about that. You know, I was going for a joke, a bad taste joke.
Oh, yeah! A Joke! That’s the ticket!
