Christians Threαten Boycott, Demand That Aaron McGruder’s “Black Jesus” be Canceled

Aaron McGruder’s “Black Jesus” hasn’t even aired and already Christians are up in arms, black-jesusdemanding that the show be canceled.

The Christian activist network One Million Moms and a flurry of pastors have taken offense at the character and are calling on the Adult Swim network to nix the show.

In the show, Black Jesus lives in Compton, California and goes on a “daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.”

David A. Rogers, pastor of the House of Prayer for All Nations Ministries in Chicago, Illinois, calls the show “utter foolishness and disrespectful” and wrote a letter to the Turner Broadcasting system expressing his outrage:

“We, the Christian community are vehemently opposed and violently offended at this upcoming program soon to air on your channel called, ‘BLACK JESUS.’ The 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. These continued attacks against our Christian values and the degrading imagery of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be met with social media awareness to the entire Christian community and a targeted boycott of your advertisers.

The organization One Million Moms has also expressed outrage, calling the show “blasphemous” and accusing it of “makes a mockery of our Lord…the entire program will be based on lies about Christianity.”

Have you heard about the new show yet? If so, what are your thoughts?
