Cartoon Network Disgraceful Portrayal In “Black Jesus”

It has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with portrayal or more to the point-Betrayal. The Cartoon Network is set to premiere a new TV show called, “Black Jesus”, that has their version of the Christ as a beer drinking, foul mouthed heathen. While some have tried to make this an issue of race, the fact of the matter is that the Cartoon Network idea of Jesus is nothing but a disgrace.

Cartoon Network Hits New Low With Blasphemous ‘Black Jesus’

Deborah Hamilton/Charisma News, an action-focused division of American Family Association, is urging Americans to contact the originators of new late-night programming on the Cartoon Network that portrays Jesus as a foul-mouthed, violent man with a message of anything but love.

Late-night shows on the Cartoon Network fall under the block known as “Adult Swim,” and a new program in the lineup includes the non-animated show Black Jesus, which portrays the Son of God as a “black guy living in the hood.” The blasphemous, irreverent and disrespectful show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of the Lord.

Cartoon Network recently posted on YouTube a trailer for the show, which debuts Aug. 7, and frequent foul language in the trailer alone is shocking and disgusting. In addition, violence, gunfire, drinking and other inappropriate behavior completely misrepresent Jesus.

“The garbage that passes for entertainment continues to disturb us,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “This new show is a complete misrepresentation of Jesus Christ and the message of hope and salvation He brings to the world. Even the three-minute trailer was too vile to watch, with multiple uses of the f-word by the actor portraying Black Jesus. Christians and anyone who believes in respecting faith must come together to make sure this program never airs.”

    God said that it is better for a milestone be tied around someone neck and thrown into the sea. He said thatin regard to some of us here on earthhow do you think you feel about someone disrespecting his sonhe also said touch not myanointed and do my prophets no home I think you’re better off playing with matches in a gasoline factory than playing with Jesus Christ.

      I donot understand why would someone want to role model Jesus as a sinner instead of someone divine. He was sinless & the son of God. Children, youth as well as Adult need to see Jesus as who the Bible says he is not as a figurative of someone imagination. This is not positive to the Christian faith, but an assault to our faith. Poor role model for people to see. I agree it should not be shown.
