But the Catholic League is not amused. "Was always this crude? Would he think it comic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother?" the Telegraph quoted League president Bill Donahue, as saying.
Donahue said: "At one point in the show, David goes to the bathroom in a Catholic home and splatters urine on a picture of Jesus. He doesn't clean it off. Then a Catholic woman goes to the bathroom, sees the picture and concludes that Jesus is crying. She then summons her equally stupid mother and the two of them fall to their knees in prayer."
A Catholic League spokeswoman added: "Our members are opposed to it. There's no one calling to support it, let''s put it that way." However, the broadcaster HBO has defended the show by saying: "Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire. makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humour is always playful and certainly never malicious."
