Comedy Central developing Jesus Christ cartoon

What a bunch of hypocrites.
They were too afraid to air even one episode mocking Muhammad, but they're doing an entire series to insult Jesus.

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.

Jesus-south-park 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.


They don't even mention it on their site, and they really don't appear to want any feedback or comments:  HERE is their "feedback" page.   Their parent company, MTV, is not much better.  HERE is their "feedback" page.
