Adult Swim's 'Black Jesus' Comedy Offends Christians With Pot-Smoking, Beer-Drinking Jesus
Christian Post ^ | 7-22-2014 | Katherine Weber

The new "Black Jesus" comedy has some protesting the depiction of Jesus as a marijuana-smoking, beer-drinking character in the show. Paul Scott, a self-proclaimed minister of the Messianic Afrikan Nation, has called for a boycott of the upcoming comedy, arguing that it "[makes] a mockery of the concept of a Black Messiah."

According to his blog, the North Carolina-based minister argues that "the show does a disservice to the Black leaders and theologians who have dedicated their lives to advancing a Black Liberation Theology," adding that he believes "the Black community needs to see a proper image of a Black Messiah in 2014."

Yet another attempt to demonize and minimalize Christianity by the PC Media...

How soon until Christians start being taken to the camps?

The only person complaining is the guy that wants to see a proper black Jesus

Do we resist?
We certainly have the means to do so, still.

That’s probably the only thing keeping the trains from running.

But nothing will happen to the POS. Now if he had made a sketch of a certain other founder of a certain middle eastern “religion” he would be getting death threats.

And it’s not much of a stretch— I’m pretty sure Mohahmed actually WAS black.

Adult Swim cartoons specialize in the dark, depraved and disturbing take on life. I don’t watch them now that I know what to expect. I’m surprised they don’t show their character sharing needles along with everything else.

I said this earlier today. We are obviously in the Last Days. So much hatred against Jews and Christians has reached a boiling point. I suspect that Christians in this country will have to register soon so they can be picked up later, like the Jews were in Germany. So much hatred. All because Jesus and Israel represent Morality and Sanctification and Repentance.

Yes. You’re paying attention.

This is not threatening to Christians.

Sad, yes.

I don't like people telling me what I should be offended about.
I'm not a leftist and can think for my own damn self.

Maybe, but in my show the mo-ham is going to be North Korean. In every show he’ll kill people for some reason or no reason at all. And then he’ll kill the little girls he rapes for the family’s honor. Then he’ll kill them for letting him kill the little girls. Then send an executioner out into a field to behead the family, and then he’ll direct mortar fire on to the family, and when people protest “But you’ll kill the executioner, too” he laughs and laughs and stabs the person protesting and orders “open fire”. Then he has sex with a goat. He’s angry because he’s short, fat and has a pile of bouffant under his head rags.

So, at least it’s got THAT goin’ for it. Anything that mocks liberation theology is okay in my book. And Jesus is not hurt a whit by this adolescent “comedy”. And BTW: “Make no mistake - God will not be mocked.”

Awww...HELL no!

Where is the outrage from South Park:
Jesus v. Mohammed v. Santa Claus?
Where is the outrage of South park mocking Joseph Smith and the Mormon cult?

Does both the Mohammed and the Mormon cult champion “liberation socialism”?
I’d think they do....

Although the creator of this television show, Aaron McGruder, is a liberal, he has been one of the harshest critics of "Black Culture" in the last decade. He has attacked BET Television, the rap music scene, race-baiters like Sharpton and Jackson, welfare dependency, etc. Although much of his work comes across superficially as being racially "political correct", his underlying themes are all generally opposed to the self-destructive nature black celebrities and politicians.

His previous television series, The Boondocks, just concluded after four seasons. Interestingly, almost all contemporary depictions of racial prejudice where by black characters. I would not be surprised if this new series was a vehicle for satirical criticism of the welfare state.

Exactly. I don’t know why Comedy Central has these shows on. They aren’t funny. The concept is stale and banal. Its been done a million times before. It certainly isn’t “edgy” or “controversial.” Quite frankly, its pathetic. As you mentioned, a real “edgy” and “controversial” show would be “pot smoking Mohammed” who curses and sits around getting high. But we all know we won’t see that.

Sometimes I think, do we really need Christians to start killing people and slitting throats go gain some respect? I’m certainly not advocating that but it seems like the only way to get society to respect Christians. Our media elites will flat out tell you that the reason that they don’t ridicule Islam is because they are afraid.

This is Cartoon Network watched by children.

They really need to make “Adult Swim” a separate channel

Black Liberation Theology [...] a proper image of a Black Messiah

I'd be 100% in support of mocking Black Liberation Theology if they hadn't gotten Jesus involved.

Cartoon Network's commercials for the Adult Swim shows are very informative: they show me exactly why I don't want to watch them.
