The American Family Association is calling for the cancellation of a new show that it says depicts a black Jesus in a “denigrating” way.
The Cartoon Network may be a favorite among kids during the day, but after hours, it transforms into “Adult Swim,” an accompanying network that airs all-adult content.
“Black Jesus,” the Aaron McGruder series set to air on the network Aug. 7 portrays Jesus as a “profane, pot-smoking, alcohol-drinking character in the impoverished urban Compton Gardens,” according to an email obtained by BizPac Review that American Family Association sent to its supporters.
“The foul language used in the trailer, including repeated uses of the Lord’s name in vain, the f-word and the s-word is disgusting,” the association wrote. “In addition, there is violence, gunfire, drugs and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus.”
The group is urging supporters to email Turner Broadcasting Network President David Levy and Cartoon Network and Adult Swim President Christina Miller asking them to drop the anti-Christian show.
“Adult Swim is not ridiculing any other religion and wouldn’t dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims, but has no problem denigrating Christians,” the American Family Association wrote.
