Regularly Scheduled Blasphemy?

Not that this surprises me based upon Comedy Central's current track record of regularly blaspheming and mocking our Savior, specifically on the show South Park...
Comedy Central considers series about Jesus Christ
NEW YORK (AP) -- 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."
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."
Read the entire article here.
It gets even more interesting when you read the last paragraph of the article and the other new shows that are being considered. I refuse to post that paragraph here, however, because the show titles are quite bluntly inappropriate. Things like this make me want to cancel my cable entirely, except then I'd be without those treasured I Love Lucy reruns on other channels!

So what have we learned from this? It's not okay to mock the "prophet" Muhammad, but Jesus Christ is fair game. This truly is upside down and backwards.

  1. Hey, this is America where political-correctness reigns. Picking on Christ - politically correct; picking on Mohammed - not politically-correct!

    If Christians threatened destruction of whoever spoke of them, they'd also be politically-incorrect to attack. Let's all kowtow to Islam!
