Comedy Central Plans Show to Mock Jesus Christ
Having already caused a fuss this spring with the depiction of the prophet Muhammad on "South Park~" Comedy Central said Thursday that it has a cartoon series about Jesus Christ in the works.
"JC" is one of 23 potential series the network said it has in development. It depicts Christ as a "regular guy" who moves to New York to "escape his father’s enormous shadow."
His father is presented as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life~ according to Comedy Central’s thumbnail sketch of the idea. Reveille~ the production company behind "The Office~" "Ugly Betty" and "The Biggest Loser~" is making "JC."
It wouldn’t be the first time Jesus Christ has been on a Comedy Central cartoon; he’s a recurring character on the long-running "South Park." Comedy Central was the target last month of an Internet threat for a "South Park" episode that supposedly showed Islam’s prophet in a bear costume.
Whenever "South Park" features Muhammad in an episode~ Comedy Central obscures the character with a black box; Muslims consider any physical representation of their prophet to be blasphemous. Following the Internet threat~ Comedy Central angered "South Park" producers by editing out a character’s speech about intimidation in a subsequent episode.
"It’s not certain what is more despicable: the nonstop Christian bashing featured on the network~ or Comedy Central’s decision to censor all depictions of Muhammad~" said William Donohue~ president of the Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights.
A PRAYER TO ALMIGHTY GOD~
It has come to our attention that Comedy Central is considering airing a new TV show that mocks and belittles Jesus Christ~ when you have already pulled or canceled programs that poked fun at the false-prophet Muhammed of Islam. Why do you favor anti-Christian~ pro-Islam hypocrisy?
We respectfully request that you do not air anti-Christian blasphemy~ or anything that impugns our faith~ and please cancel any plans to air any such program that mocks or belittles Jesus Christ. If you offend us~ we will launch a nation-wide boycott of your network~ and any other network who airs such a program.
We the undersigned pray in Jesus’ name~ Amen.
