One Million Moms vs. Black Jesus
If it weren't for One Million Moms and a few other Biblehump organizations throwing a mass hissyfit, most of us wouldn't have heard about the upcoming TV series Black Jesus. It sounds like it'll be hilarious. Thanks, Biblewads; I owe you.
Black Jesus will be shown on the cable channel Adult Swim, which shares channel space with the Cartoon Network. (I've never seen Adult Swim listed on the Guide Channel, but I know we get the Cartoon Network.)
The program is produced by Aaron McGruder, who created The Boondocks. According to the One Million Moms website, Black Jesus “depicts Jesus living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of our Lord.”
So apparently Black Jesus would be acceptable if He were depicted living in white upscale Brentwood; they just don't want Him associating with those filthy minorities in Compton.
A One Million Moms spokesperson said:
“If we speak with one voice now, we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day.”
Yup, that'll work.
