White Conservatives Going Insane Over Adult Swimâs âBlack Jesusâ
The right-wing American Family Association is one entity that is not in any way happy with the showâs premise and is urging advertisers to boycott it.
One Million Moms leads the conservative charge against the show with claims that âBlack Jesusâ is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity.â The group says that âThe late night programming on the Cartoon Network, known as Adult Swim, plans to air the non-animated show âBlack Jesusâ portraying Jesus as a âblack guy living in the hood.â The show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of our Lord. The foul language used in the trailer, including using the Lordâs name in vain, is disgusting. In addition, there is violence, gunfire and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus. This is blasphemy!â
The AFA took up One Million Momsâ fight, urging those on its mailing list to e-mail TBS and Cartoon Network executives the following:
Dear President Levy and President Miller:
I am disappointed that TBSâ Cartoon Network and Adult Swim plans to air âBlack Jesus.â
We are told in Hebrews that âJesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.â Obviously, âBlack Jesusâ makes a mockery of the Christian faith. It would be beneficial to all if TBS and Adult Swim showed a little more respect for Christians who believe the Bible.
I am joining others in asking you to cancel plans to air this show.
I know that American Family Association will keep us posted on which companies underwrite this program with advertising. I am prepared to contact them personally and urge them to pull all commercial support from the Cartoon Network.
Conservatives have swarmed the âBlack Jesusâ Facebook page to voice their disapproval for the mocha-colored protagonistâand nothing is funnier than watching white people complain about a non-white Jesus..right, Megyn Kelly?
