Comedy Central Now Developing 'Jesus Christ' Cartoon

Satirize Mohammed? No, do you want to get us killed? Jesus Christ? Hey, fair game baby!

Comedy Central might censor every image of the Prophet Muhammad on "South Park," yet the network is developing a whole animated series around Jesus Christ.
As part of the network's upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), the network is set to announce "JC," a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City.

In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, "the ultimate fish out of water," tries to adjust to life in the big city.

"In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable," said Comedy Central's head of original programming Kent Alterman.

When asked if the show might draw some fire, especially coming on the heels of the network's decision to censor the Muslim faith's religious figure on "South Park," Alterman said its too early in the show's development to be concerned about such matters.

Like all Comedy Central executives, Alterman declined to address the recent controversy over "South Park," where the network aired a heavily redacted episode after the show's creators were threatened by an extremist Islamic Web site.

This is more important than just some silly Hollywood suit showing the usual hypocrisy. What Comedy Central has endorsed,along with a lot of our media and culture is a 'special status' for Islam that makes it immune to criticism by adherents and especially by infidels...or in other words, an acceptance of sharia law.

While insulting any religion may be problematic, giving Islam a pass out of fear is a part of the Death of a Thousand Cuts of our culture.

please helps me write more gooder!

This concept has been rather blatantly ripped off from an animated, online show called JFCShow.

All they did was drop the F and steal the entire concept verbatim. Watch the whole first season on
