Weekend Update: The Devil on the Catholic Church Child Molestation Scandal - SNL 5

The Devil (Jason Sudeikis) joins Seth Myers to denounce the Catholic Church for covering up the reports of child molestation, admit that he had nothing to do with it and talk about the priests' special place in hell. [Season 35, 2010]


💬 Comments on the video

I never realized just how politically charged these devil skits were. When ever he shows up it’s to show his offense at some horrible act (usually abuse) and it’s pretty much just SNL saying “yeah rapist? Abusers? Molesters? They’re worse than the actual devil, no if and or buts about it” and that can hit hard when their intended audience is religious. You can always tell when SNL’s accuracy hits home because the audience is always surprising quiet

"Did you hear who was molested? THOUSANDS OF KIDS!" Only Sudeikis could deliver that sentence in a funny way.

That pause after "Protect the children, not the priests" deserved an amen🙌🙏. The audience's mind set

"Even demons and gargoyles need to know who they live with."

Wait, I thought gargoyles were designed to scare demons away.

Well, it's an overwhelming subject to make fun of so when I was watching it, I was feeling a little bit uncomfortable. I'm pretty sure the audience felt the same because their laughter seemed hesitant to me. But it was funny though and the fact they broached subjects like this in the show makes me miss Jason and Seth more :< I don't know what to think about the new SNL cast, I miss Seth, Jason, Kristen, Fred and Bill so much, they've been comedic legends since their first appearances on the show <3

this is hilarious but so on the nose. So I'm from ireland and the school I go to used to be a boys boarding school run by priests. you can fill in the blanks yourself. what's disturbing is that there are still these old shower rooms up a back stairs by the office that everyone refuses to go near. Not just that, only two priests were convicted, (one's still in jail and the other's dead) the rest still live in a nursing home on the school grounds that is easily accessible by walking down a short path. I have to walk past those houses to get into school every morning. btw I am a Catholic and I found this funny.
