Comedy Central to Develop Cartoon About Jesus Christ
“JC” will feature Christ himself escaping the shadow of his father (God) to live a regular life in New York City. The news comes weeks after Comedy Central censored a Mohammed-themed episode of the animated show South Park when creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker received death threats.
The series will poke fun at religion and society while positioning the biblical figure as a foreigner to modern life.
God will be portrayed as a powerful, but apathetic force who regularly ignores his son’s complaints about his daily struggles.
“JC” will join other taboo testing productions such as “Supermax” where notable inmates such as Sammy “Bull” Gravano, shoe bomber Richard Reid and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski interact comically in a Colorado super maximum security prison.
All things considered, it sounds like a far cry from this Jesus who has the power to explode the Earth:
- What do you think, is this going to be funny, or just another meager attempt at cracking wise on Jesus?
