Kyle Sandilands outrages Christians and Muslims over Virgin Mary joke

Kyle Sandilands sparks outrage among Christian and Muslim communities for saying the Virgin Mary was a ‘liar’ who got knocked up ‘behind a camel shed’

Radio host Kyle Sandilands is under fire from religious groups for making offensive comments about Jesus’ mother, the Virgin Mary.

In a video shared to social media by KIIS FM, the 48-year-old joked that the Virgin Mary wasn’t actually a ‘virgin’ at all.

He ridiculed the idea of the Immaculate Conception by describing Mary as a ‘liar’  who got knocked up ‘behind a camel shed’.

Kyle’s joke suggested that Mary had cheated on her husband Joseph, and had conceived Jesus with another man. 

‘I thought Mary was his [Jesus Christ’s] girlfriend but apparently it was the mother,’ he began.

‘And the mother lied obviously and told everyone, “Nah, I got pregnant by a magical ghost”. Bulls**t. Someone chock-a-blocked her behind the camel shed!’ 

Blasphemy! Kyle ridiculed the idea of the Immaculate Conception by describing Mary as a 'liar' who got knocked up 'behind a 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 s**t,’ he added.

Listeners were quick to slam Kyle for his comments, which eventually resulted in the video being taken down, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Another unrelated video was deleted by KIIS FM’s social media administrators after fans began leaving comments directed at Kyle.

‘Low life scumbags @kyleandjackieo think they are funny when they mock the Virgin Mary who many Faiths believe in,’ one listener wrote.

‘That’s why the world turns to s**t because people have no religion and they don’t respect other people’s beliefs even if they do,’ another person commented. 

A third added: ‘Kyle we are going to pray for you. You are not well and need help. Everyone will pray for you. May God have mercy on you Kyle.’ 

Kyle’s joke seemingly offended Christians and Muslims from around the world, with one man even commenting on the post from Lebanon.

Sydney man Charlie Bakhos posted a response to the video that quickly went viral.

He wrote: ‘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.’  

According to the Telegraph, Mr Bakhos concluded by telling listeners to call into the KIIS FM studios and complain to management. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted KIIS FM for comment.
