Comedy Central set to blaspheme Christ with
The Comedy Central network is planning a
cartoon series about Jesus Christ entitled "JC."
June 7, 2010
its promotional material for the program, Viacom describes Jesus as a
"regular guy" - rather than the Son of God - and depicts him moving
to New York to "escape his father's enormous shadow." The Father is
depicted as an apathetic dad virtually addicted to video games and totally
uninterested in his son's life.
Comedy Central is set - unless we intervene - to blaspheme two-thirds of the
Trinity on a weekly basis.
See how we expect Comedy
Central to mock Christ by viewing this previous offering of anti-Christian bigotry from the
show "South Park." Warning - It is offensive, but depicts the
animosity the network has toward Christianity.
in recent weeks Comedy Central bowed to pressure from Islamic groups and
heavily censored an episode of "South Park" that showed Mohammed in a
bear costume. The hypocrisy here is staggering.
Central shows more respect for Mohammed and for Muslims, who represent two
percent of the American population, than for Jesus Christ and the 83% of
Americans who believe in him.
need to send a loud, clear message to Comedy Central and all potential
advertisers of "JC" that this kind of insulting programming is
completely unacceptable. If we speak with one voice now we can keep this
program from ever seeing the light of day.
