Is it Right For Pastors To Allow Comedians Perform In Church?

Apparently a respected evangelist, Pastor Mike Bamiloye of Mount Zion Faith Ministries is not cool with the idea, especially with the way some comedians talk about the Bible, Blood of Jesus, some of them even use words like Blood of God and all sorts. You can't do that in a Mosque.

More on his position below:

As per COMEDY in Church Meetings and Events!!
We hear of other religions where they are obsessed with protecting the image of their Leader and we gleefully allow people to MOCK our Leader JESUS CHRIST and the
Holy Spirit and thereby indirectly MOCKING GOD!!! They look at us with disdain because we are BAD AMBASSADORS of our faith! 
Lukewarmness and cynicism has crept slowly into the life of Christians. We pull ourselves down publicly, abuse leaders of the gospel will glee, mock certain commandments of God. YET when we run into trouble who do we call upon??? 
Bible has already stated that towards the end times there will be mockers of the gospel and preachers doing wrong. WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELF TO BE ONE OF THEM??? 
We come into Facebook and spew out curses and abuses - mock the commandments especially when it comes to forgiveness issues and honour of parents etc and we go to church and lift up hands and voices to WHO??? HE who we MOCK with DISOBEDIENCE? 
We quickly mouth monotonous words - God is in control! Amen! It is well! Praise God etc but do we HONOUR HIM with our words and actions??? We are humans and not perfect but SHOULD WE MOCK THE CORE COMPONENTS OF OUR FAITH???
I was thinking of all this since Friday when a comedian was allowed in the stage at the EXPERIENCE to use a scripture in the Old Testament as foundation for his jokes! I LAUGHED also but later felt badly convicted and I said I will speak out...
