PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) - Kathy Griffin asks "Am I the only Catholic left with a sense of humor?"
She's reacting to members of the Catholic League who were upset over the thank-you speech she gave when she won her creative arts Emmy.
In accepting the Emmy for "My Life on the D-List," Griffin had said that many winners thank Jesus for their awards.
In her words: "I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."
She also held up her Emmy and made an off-color remark about Jesus.
Another group also is upset with Griffin.
The Miracle Theater placed a full-page ad earlier this week in USA Today saying they consider it an honor to stand for Jesus.
