Sarah Silverman has seen her share of controversies — after all, her no-holds-barred style, coupled with her wit, intelligence and sweetness, has been her calling card for years. But in this new video, Silverman really pushes boundaries by using Jesus Christ himself as a platform to discuss women’s health causes, a cause about which she has been vocal recently.
Silverman describes a time when a very unlikely nice Jewish boy showed up in her living room to ask her to be a vessel of His word. They just hung out, watched “NCIS,” and had a heart-to-heart about the mysteries of life, such as when life begins.
“At 40!” Jesus joked. But then he got serious. “Fertilized eggs aren’t people, people are people.”
In keeping with his message of peace, he continued: “But people who believe fertilized eggs are people are people too. You have to love them. You’re not better than them.”
Watch the video to see how Sarah’s hanging out with Jesus led her down a path that made her question some assumptions about the law and religion.
