Imagine the film ‘Fridays’ with Jesus in the cast and you have ‘Black Jesus’ – a new company on Adult Swim. Well, as you can guess, wing nuts are NOT pleased with the concept:
One Million Moms claimed that the trailer alone “makes a mockery of our lord. The foul language used in the trailer, including using the lord’s name in vain, is disgusting.” The group hopes that “[i]f we speak with one voice now, we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day.”
On Facebook, Pastor David Rodgers, claiming to speak for “the Christian Community of America,” wrote a letter to Adult Swim in which it claimed that “level of disrespect aimed at the depiction of our Lord and Savior is inexcusable. We are hard pressed to find any value in this program, its message or its purpose. As a group of believers, we are prepared to launch a mass campaign and boycott of your channel and any advertisers that are financially profiting from this program.”
Moreover, Rodgers demanded “a PUBLIC APOLOGY to the Christian Community at large,” noting that “[t]here is no way that this show would be aimed at the Jewish or Muslim community.” Groups threatening to boycott the show were quick to note that their objections were religious, not racial.
And I mean they are ALL mad. Even Bryan Fischer put out an alert on his AFA radio show. And sorry, folks, your stamp of approval on what we get to watch is not welcome.
