Richard Silverstein Falls For Yet Another Hoax Story

You almost have to wipe the spit off your keyboard when reading Israel-hating douchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein tweet his indignation at the latest slight against his beloved Islam.

You see, if Silverstein had done the minimum of due diligence (I know, a hard ask from him), he would have discovered the actual story.

Using an erotic, pornographic tone, Hollywood leading lady Scarlett Johansson reads verses from the Holy Bible on a new comedy album, in order to mock “misogynistic” quotes within the Book of Deuteronomy.

Former Saturday Night Live writer and occasional performer Mike O’Brien recruited the A-list star to voice a “Sexy Bible” track on his upcoming comedy album, Tasty Radio.

In the soundbite below, the 30-year-old Captain America actress reads a number of verses from the Old Testament’s Book of Deuteronomy:

“If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, his father and mother shall bring him to the elders at the gate of his town,” says the actress, while pausing to breathe and add a seductive emphasis to certain words. “They shall say to the others ‘this son of ours is stubborn and rebellious.’ Then all the men of this town shall stone him to death.”

“Oh s—t, that felt sexy,” says O’Brien. “How are you feeling?”

“I’m feeling like we could use a little music,” replies Johansson.

When Silverstein does discover he has been fooled yet again, he dryly tweets a link to the real story (and then deletes the incriminating tweet). But since the Holy book of Christians and Jews is the one being made fun of, there is no indignation there.
