Christians Are Furious At Kyle Sandilands For Saying Virgin Mary Got 'Chock-A-Blocked Behind The Camel Shed'
Radio host Kyle Sandilands has said things over the course of his career that have raised eyebrows. It's got him in a lot of trouble in the past however his latest outburst might alienate a lot of listeners.
The team behind The Kyle and Jackie O Show on KIIS FM uploaded a video on social media that prompted so much outrage that they had to pull it off their pages.
In the video, Kyle rants about the Virgin Mary, aka one of the most sacred identities in the Christian faith, and how she wasn't really a virgin.
"I thought Mary was his [Jesus Christ's] girlfriend but apparently it was the mother," Sandilands said in the video. "And the mother lied obviously and told everyone 'Nah I got pregnant by a magical ghost'. Bullshit. Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed.
"You might believe everything that's written down 2,000 years ago to be absolutely accurate and good on you, you're dumb. Dumb as dog shit."
It's not hard to see why this would prompt such a furious outrage from people who hold the Virgin Mary pretty highly in their minds.
Christian Lives Matter administrator Charlie Bakhos posted a video online tearing Sandilands to shreds and asking him to show a bit of compassion to cultures outside of his own.

"You offended Christians, Muslims, people of faith. You called the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ names, you accused her of sex, you said some disgusting things.
"Your words are just words and what you don't understand is there are a lot of fence-sitting Christians out there and you've angered them and pushed them off the fence towards getting closer to Christ.
"We will bring the prayer to you, prayer groups and thousands upon thousands to your doorstep, to your studio, until you repent and change your ways."
Kyle isn't the only one in Australia who has copped criticism recently for a rogue take on the Virgin Mary.
A painting, titled Holy Family by the artist Juan Davila, has been chucked up in a museum at the Griffith University and there are loads of people who want it taken down.
There are a lot of voices calling for it to be taken down, even from the state government, who has called it 'vulgar' and 'in poor taste'.
However it seems like it's going to stay
Griffith University's Museum director Angela Goddard said in a statement: "The role of art is to challenge and push boundaries with the freedom of artistic expression central to that mission."
