Christian Theater Troupe Spends $90,000 On Ad Denouncing Kathy Griffin

Adam Howard: Griffin says, "Am I the only Catholic left with a sense of humor?"
As you may already know, Sally Field wasn't the only actress attacked for an Emmy speech. Kathy Griffin, caustic comedian and star of "My Life on the D-List" has caused a stir of her own with her acceptance speech at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Here's what she said:
"A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." She topped it off with "Hell has frozen over. Suck it Jesus, this award is my god now!"
Now some Christian theater troupe called The Miracle Theater, which is based in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, has spent $90,440 to take a full page ad out in USA Today, that ran on Monday nationally condemning Griffin. It read:
"We at The Miracle Theater consider it an honor to stand for Jesus today," the ad said. "We may never win a national award. We may never be household names. We may never be seen in Hollywood. Although others may choose to use their national platform to slander our God, we are honored as professional entertainers to stand for Christ."
