Jesus Christ cartoon in development at Comedy Central

Jesus Christ is regularly depicted as a supporting character on one of Comedy Central’s staple programs, “South Park,” but now he might star in his own animated series.

The network announced their programming plans for the upcoming year Thursday, and among some of the shows in the script development phase is a half-hour cartoon called “JC.”

The series would be about “JC (Jesus Christ) wanting to escape his father's enormous shadow and to live life in NYC as a regular guy. A lot has changed in 2000 years and he is the ultimate fish out of water,” according to a press release. “Meanwhile his all-powerful yet apathetic father would rather be playing video games than listening to JC recount his life in the city. JC is a playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb.”

It's important to note that script development is the very earliest stage a program can be in, said Comedy Central’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Steve Albani in a statement to CNN.

In fact, this stage is so early, Comedy Central's Albani "wanted to emphasize that projects at the script deal level are several levels away from being greenlit to series and appearing on air ... most script deals do not even get a pilot order, the next step in the development process.”

    Great, make fun of the Christians (we're easy targets); then the Muslims (wait, they will kill us); then the Jews (wait, they will kill your career and take your financing); then the Buddhists (wait, that's not really in vogue); then witches (for some reason that's politically incorrect). Yeah, stick to the Christians, you can get away with it easily enough because, hey, we are no threat. You better hope you are right in the afterlife.

    It is about time for the Christian community to pull there head out of the sand and put there foot down and say enough is enough. It makes my stomach turn to thank that all other faiths will stand for what they believe in and we as christian in a land that is to be free stand by and watch our churchs and children get run down. I say to all christian out there it is time to put our foot down we dont have to take it any more

    Jeremy, sorry to burst your bubble but Einstein was a devout Atheist. Maybe if you spent those 3 nights a week learning about things that actually did happen and can be verified (unlike the Garden of Eden, the talking snake, the burning bush, the 10 commandments, Noahs Ark, the enslavement of Israel by Egypt, the actual birthplace of Christ...I think my point is made), rather than keeping your nose stuck in Bronze-age literature you would have more of a leg to stand on in a discussion rather than pointing out smart figures from history that back up your point. But as long as we are at it, here is a list of renowned Atheists that were also extremely intelligent, see if it affects you in the way you hoped your examples would affect us:
    Albert Einstein
    Thomas Jefferson
    Thomas Paine
    Stephen Hawking
    Richard Dawkins
    See? Didnt sway you at all did it? Because faith has nothing to do with intellect. In fact faith doesnt even require intellect, it requires you to be trustful of the person feeding you the info, thats it. Dont believe me? Look in your Bible, it says you have to come to God with "child-like faith". A child will believe anything you tell them. That is why religion has stood the test of time, despite all the science and facts you can use to debunk such ancient beliefs. As a Christian, how many times have you heard the worn-out expression "God said it, I believe it, that settles it"? Does that frighten anyone else but me? That someone will just willingly believe something that someone else said, just because they said God said it? The only time in the Bible God spoke with an audible voice was when Jesus was baptized, and a voice came from Heaven saying "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." Now, if that really did happen, dont you think that would have been a convincing enough event to make everyone believe? But the debate still rages on. Hmm, maybe it didnt really happen. Maybe its BS. Maybe its not, but the only way you can truly find out is to find out for yourself, not just take the word of a preacher, or your parents, or your next door neighbor, and especially not from someone who wrote a book 2,000 years ago in an attempt to curb peoples behavior. How can that book even attempt to explain the creation of the world, when science wouldnt be invented for another thousand years? Take your blinders off, look around you and realize that you have been sold a bill of goods. And theyre not that good.

By not airing it they can declare themselves "sensitive" or "understanding of" the fact that religion is off limits to some people of varying religions. Then Comedy Central cowards can say they arent cowards..."so we censored M but we also didnt show JC, so we were Fair..." Never make it to air, not on CC anyway

    IT'S A TV CARTOON. A CARTOON. Judgment Day? Guiltless? Blasphemy? Religion should remain a personal issue and should not be used as a pulpit for idealism. This talk is madness and is designed to scare children and shame weak people as the collection plate is passed.

    See, my real objection to this is that a high school junior could have thought of this, and probably did. Never mind the whole blasphemy thing, there's just no way this would be funny. Not even amusing for a moment. It will die when the first test audience sees the first version, and it will take some producer's money with it when it goes. No need to crucify it, or the producers, all you Christian jihadists, because the management of CC will likely waterboard whoever gave them this dumb idea.

    I presume Jesus Christ, being human, farted once in awhile. I also believe that sometimes this act might have been humorous to those in his 'flock'.

    "The term, humor, derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours (Greek: χυμός, chymos, literally juice or sap, metaphorically, flavour), control human health and emotion." – wikipedia

    Therefore, the people at Comedy Central have every right to make light of Jesus Christ. Without humor, Jesus is inhuman, the same way that without humor, Mohammed is inhuman.

    I don't like it when Jesus Christ is put in any light besides being the Son of God. But I do also agree that we will have the choice to watch or not to watch. So the choice is up to each person. The mention of "boycotting" Comedy Central was mentioned. As for me, before you boycott the network, you have to watch in the first place, and I choose not to do that myself. I haven't watched Comedy Central in years. Again, that's just my choice. Just like accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, it is left up to the person to choose.

    Let me tell you of a universal law: There are 2 kinds of people in the world: the cultured and the uncultured.

    Obviously, this dumb idea is a mind-spin of the uncultured. Since the uncultured have no values, no ideals, no higher purpose,let alone a God, they are invulnerable when it comes to mocking people who have all of the above, and in great intensity.

    This show and those who look forward of seeing it only testify of their own moral emptiness. The moment you become a cultured person in any way, you automatically become the target of the uncultured. Why do you think the book of Psalms contains so many lamentation stories? Because the cultured are constantly being attacked by the uncultured, simply known as the evil and the wicked. They simply have no respect for anything in all situations, 24/7 round-the-clock.

    I would like to pull your attention to the following facts,
    First of all, if Comedy Central is to publish such an insulting Series regarding the Messiah, then with all due respect, this is the Christians fault, the bible clearly states that the Name of God is not be wasted in vain! A Cartoon series is nothing but VAIN. Action needs to be taken regarding that matter, and by actions, I mean diplomatic, peaceful and democratic actions.
    Just out of the offensive statements of Islam and Christianity written below, they could create series for next 5 seasons!
    Though I totally agree, that Muslims succeeded in defending Prophet Mohammad, this why you don’t find as such Series. But what’s worth mentioning, is that half of the Muslims, stated their opinions in a very offensive, barbarian and violent way, yet the other half led a public counter-arguments campaign through magazines, TV and radio stations.
    All I want to say, that insulting religions has gone way out of hand, and actions needs to be taken by the appropriate authorities regarding that manner. And for most of the people that commented on this post, I would like you to reread your posts and see how the Christian argument was “WHY not Mohammad?” and the Muslims counter argument is simply making fun of the JC series. Instead of the Christians defending the Messiah, and Muslims support them for that Muslim have been in almost the same situation before. This is a shame. Either ways, for either religion this is exactly what gives those comedians the right to insult your religions whatever it may be.
    Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion and my personal believe regarding this issue, just felt like sharing it. This is not an insult for Christians and Muslims nor Comedy Central, I respect the two religions equally, everybody has the right to live, believe and fall back to what he sees feasible and appropriate to his own considerations.

    This is basically Comedy Central's response for being shamed into censoring Muhhamed's image a few weeks ago, out of fear of Muslim retalliation. Since they're embarrassed about backing down and turning yellow then, they decide to take it out on the Son of God. As mentioned in a lot of the other posts, Christians will not fight back, they will not rise up....we just take it like the slap it is...and turn the other cheek. My conscience has been seared enough times just watching South Park over the years. It means nothing to Comedy Central, or to Matt or Trey....but they'll lose this viewer...and a few others too.

    Comedy Central is so full of themselves. A few weeks ago they're all up tight about mocking Islam, (even though it showed Muhammed for a fraction of a second) , now they're making a show about Jesus Christ. That's why I refuse to watch ANYTHING related to Comedy Central anymore, they're hippocrites. For years South Park has made fun of every religion known to man, but when Comedy Central heard about the death threats against Matt Stone and Trey Parker they almost wet themselves. But they have enough guts to make a show about Jesus Christ? That's very weak.

    If they have enough guts to make fun of Jesus, and make a show about it, they should have enough guts to make fun of Muhammed and every other part of Islam. Hippocrites.

    @Paul Willson:
    There's a big difference: the Muslin religion prohibits any depiction of their prophets (in a quite effective measure to avoid the politheistic tendencies found in other religions by the adoration of representations, such as the Virgin of Fatima in the case of the Christian church). Any depiction, even by a non-Muslim, is considered intolerable. For Christians, depicting Jesus is OK. Mocking Jesus is not, but only for a Christian. Present day Christianity doesn't order attacking anyone mocking JC, whereas Muslims are mandated to do it for anyone mocking Mohamed.
    Now, no one gets angry if you mock Thor, Zeus or Isis, which tells me it is a matter of time before no one cares if you mock one of the present deities or prophets.

    What all the folks quoting the Bible seem to forget is that their holy books have no authority over nonbelievers.

    Citing all the dreadful things some (mythical) god is going to do because he's offended by a team of cartoonists is both laughable and pathetic - which should be a hint as to why Comedy Central thinks "Jesus in the Big Apple" would be an audience hit.

    In the United States of America, we have freedom of speech. We also have the freedom to practice religion any way we wish. It was expected by our founding fathers that people would follow the golden rule, and limit the exercise of their individual rights to the point where it infringes on the rights of others. Unfortunately for those who wish to innocently worship Jesus Christ, there are those who are thoughtless, and who really don't care whose religion they trample, whose deity they crap on, or whom they offend. It is not the Christian way to retaliate, simply shake our heads in disbelief and pray that God will enlighten them before they stray too far from His light.

    Bad idea, There is no such thing as God, so why expose young people to the idea that there is a God. It's one thing to acknowledge the spirit of mankind and feel the emotional power of the brotherhood and sisterhood we all share. It's quite another to attribute that human feeling to some supernatural mumbo-jumbo. It is time for religion to go, it has served its purpose and usefulness, but it is time to move on to simply caring about each other because it is in our own best interest to do so.

    Based on the information that this article offers, I am very dismayed. For one, those of us who believe in the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit), Jesus would never desire to 'escape' God the Father; doing so would ignore truth and integrity of the Bible, as well as His purpose of being sent to earth. So, the premise of the cartoon strip is baseless.

    What is the point of the cartoon strip? Is it to mock, to employ satirical humor, to be some sort of platform for political comment; or is it simply to be yet another thorn driven into the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

    Whatever the goal, the creators, writers, decison makers at Comedy Channel, and broadcast providers will have to answer to the millions of Christians who will cancel their subscriptions if the cartoon strip is developed and aired as reported.

    Mock God, mock Jesus Christ...where is the fear? This is beyond belief!

    Great response, Mark Wilkersham. It is one thing to reject God as an individual. It is another thing to blaspheme Him in the public arena and cause others to stumble; although, anyone who would watch this kind of lack of entertainment would already have serious spiritual shallowness. I cannot fathom the thinking behind a brain that would create this "garbage." The Bible says, "God will not be mocked." Just in case you don't know this, I am sharing it so that all may read and heed. After tiring with the choice to live in sin; God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone; He changed the languages and created the great dispersement from the tower of Babel; He flooded the earth and wiped out all men with the exception of Noah and his family......the path to righteousness is narrow; few may enter in. This kind of filming is a disgrace and should NOT be supported in any way. I strongly oppose this filming.

    The world will not end because Jesus is mocked. He endured much more than TV mocking so that we would not carry the weight of our own guilt when the world does end for us. So ironic that those he endured mocking for, are those that mock him then and now.

    "They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 27:29 and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him and mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" 27:30 They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. 27:31 After mocking him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him."

    Yet, because he loved, "He was wounded for our rebellious acts. He was crushed for our sins. He was punished so that we could have peace, and we received healing from his wounds." Isaiah 53:5

    I'm not sure how long if at all the Father Almighty or the Lord Jesus Christ would be amused or tolerant of being portrayed as an ordinary common family.
    The Christ came into the world (as Jesus) to be an atoning sacrifice for all the sins and wrongdoings of those who believe in Him. Jesus himself lived a life without sin, the perfect life. Never killed, never lied, never stolen anything, never even coveted. If somehow a person could live a perfect life without breaking a single command, he wouldn't go to the furnace. When Jesus died he accepted responsibility for the sins of all who believe. Since Jesus was covered in sin the Father forsaken Him while He was on the cross. The Father Almighty is awesome and perfect but can't stand to look at sin. When Jesus descended to the place of the dead covered in sin, Satan must have been shocked to find that none of the sins on Him were actually His. Since He had no sin of His own, death could not hold Him for anything and so He resurrected.
    Since the Father Almighty is higher than everyone and everything wouldn't it annoy the Father to be lowered to a common person.
    I wonder how long the Almighty would...
    I wonder if the Christ would be impressed...

    The first episode features a lonely JC going on a 'speed date', where his pithy observations about society will be rudely interrupted with questions like "what kind of car do your drive" "mountain or beach" and "where do you see yourself in 5 years".

    The next week, JC loses all his investments in a Bernie Madoff like pyramid scheme. He becomes so distraught he develops a bowel obstruction, and has to have an enema performed by a compasionate Muslm nurse. This will be the most inspirational message of the season about religious tolerance and the benefits of high fiber diets.

    The same Jesus that you mock is the same Jesus that will be coming back and every eye will see Him...

    His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
    Revelation 19:12-16 ESV

    The same Jesus that you laugh at and turn into a joke is the same one who created your mouth that you use to laugh at Him. Please know that this is more than humor, but an offense against a Holy God.

    If you are an active Christian, registered with your Church or religious organization, any denigrating, defamatory attack on your religion is a personal attack on you, and therefore is a hate crime.
    Comedy Central can invoke the 1st Amendment, and rightfully so when they are making fun of politicinas and celebrities.
    That does not apply to any of hundreds of millions of private citizens who are fully protected by privacy laws. Defamation is a hate crime.

    I'm a huge fan of South Park and although while their depiction of Jesus can be perceived as insulting to some Christians it is at least playful. To make it a regular series is entirely insulting to all those that believe and respect the Christian Faith.

    I truly don't understand at what point Christianity and Christians became a free target for mockery in the US. Is it because of the passive nature of the religion? Have some respect for others Comedy Central. If you won't depict Mohammed then don't turn your sights onto Christians simply because they won't try to bomb your facility and would instead choose passive protest to make their point. There are good Christian people out there that don't need a show dedicated to mocking their belief system.

    Is anything sacred anymore? Or is everything fair game if it might make a buck? This really has nothing to do with religion nor if Jesus existed or not. This has to do with the respect of a belief system that many people hold in high regard and is important to them and their families.

    First, I must say one does not have to be a devoted religious person, to find the proposed show in bad taste. It is a bad mistake resulting from lack of common sense, and poor judgment with negative consequences far greater than the initial stir it may cause.

    These consequences will be both:
    Social – which they obviously underestimate;
    And economic – the only thing they actually care about.
    Social reaction: I do not know what planet these people are living, but regardless whether they like it or not, the fact is that America is still largely made of people of Christian faith: Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Catholics, Mormons, and many more Protestant religions HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS in all.
    Never underestimate... Christians may not issue Fatwa’s like fundamentalist Muslims, but there are quite a few fundamentalist Christians out there, who consider themselves righteous, and they live and die for their convictions. Example: some went so far as to assassinate doctors and nurses at abortion clinics because those practices were anathema to their convictions.
    How can they be so blind, or in such denial not to realize that Christianity is the biggest elephant in the zoo?
    BTW: Jesus is also holy in Islam – it is considered a great teacher and prophet. His mother Mary is also a saint in the Curran – in case you did not know....
    People do not have to take it to extreme in dealing with this show.
    All Christians need to do is to get organized and follow the example of the Jewish Antidefamation League (who has an impressive track record of successes), and file a class action lawsuit against the Comedy Channel. Every Christian who considers him/herslef a victim of defamation in this case should get $300,000 compensation. Do the math: the number of Christians in USA (150,000,000) X $300,000 = $4.5 Trillions!!!. At that point Comedy Channel and all its affiliates will have to declare bankruptcy. Game over.

    I want to see what happens when they announce their new comedy mocking Muslim religious figures. Oh, of course that would not happen, it might offend someone of that belief system. We are Christians, our religious beliefs and rights can be mocked and restricted on a daily basis..

    To Comedy Central:

    As you sow, so shall you reap.

    What comes around goes around

    Karma.

    Go ahead, mock God. I dare you. Your nasty disrespect, intolerance and hatred will come back to haunt you.

    Before Jesus ascended into Heaven He said something like this "Whatever you do to the least of mine you do unto me". What Jesus meant was that He was leaving the people on earth to help those in need. Jesus could not be in Haiti physically, but He was there within the people that came from around the world to help the suffering people of Haiti whether they knew it or not. Good question!

    Jesus depends on us to help others and we will be judged on how we come to the aid of others in need. This is why Mother Teresa spent 50 years working in the streets of Calcutta with the dying. She said she was doing it for the love of Jesus, and that she saw Jesus in each dying person that she cared for. She also said each one of us has a contract with God (whether we know it or not) and we will be judged by God on what we do for God, which is how much we help those in need. Jesus was saying that when we help people in need we are helping Jesus himself. Which means that Jesus was with the victims of the earthquake and we would be judged on what we did for Him through them. It is a little complicated but if you read it a few times it might make sense. The mystery of Jesus as the victim is hard for us to understand, but He wants us to know that He suffered the worst for us so our suffering could also be redemptive for ourselves and for others. Jesus freely chose to die on the cross for us. Now we can freely choose how to respond to that. We can ridicule what He and God did for us, or we can skip the show and spend the time helping those most in need and making good on our contract with God. ... one last time....use your free will wisely and help others or you will be very sorry when you meet God face to face.

    It does seem like CC set the precedence for what is the line of appropriateness with SP's episode 201. Seems unfair to let them s*it on an important religious figure just because they're not likely to get bombed.

    Can't wait to see this show if they do follow through on it. I'm not a big fan of Comedy Central, but I think I'd make an exception in this case.

    Maybe this is one time someone should take the advice if the muslims. These folks dont care about anything but shock value, They know this will and already is getting free advertising. when thy tick off the wrong group and we hear that they or a family member is assulted by one of these groups they wiil be screaming all over the press, but its going to be their own fault they knew the risks. Personally i never watch comedy central and would never allow my kids to either. Total waste of a sat. channel.

  131. Escape the Coming Judgement

    The bedrock of the Christian faith is the resurrection of Christ. The is no other religion that makes such a claim, and there is no other supportable assessment than that it actually happened.

    If (since) the resurrection actually, in fact, happened, then a number of other things also fall into place. Not the least of which is that the claims that Jesus made about Himself can be relied upon.

    The Jews wanted to make sure that no one would steal His body and claim that He had risen. The had the Roman governor place a quaternion of guards at the tomb and place a Roman seal upon it. If they could have produced the slain body or our Lord, they would have demonstrated that He was in fact only a man, and Christianity would have died at that point.

    People have been trying to refute the resurrection ever since that day, but the (cowardly) apostles suffered martyrdom rather than retract a single claim about that glorious day. The turned the world upside down with that Gospel message, and the world has never been the same since.

    Jack... I do not think God will be very pleased with those who would use their intellect and free will to make His son Jesus or His Holy and Blesse d Mother Mary or his righteous father Joseph look like a fools and idiots. How many people knew ahead of time that they would be crucified for the sins of the world and then still went ahead and submitted without protest. Good luck to those who want to do humiliate Jesus and the Holy Family...I do not want to be in your shoes when you have to explain what you were doing to God Himself one day. I also agree that free will can also be used to watch the show at laugh at Jesus or not watch the show and do good for other humans who are suffering a Jesus would be doing if he were here. I am sure Jesus would have been first on the scene in Haiti, Chile and other place where humans desperately need help. Jack

    corrected version: God gave humans free will on purpose to see what people would do with it. Those who use it for good will go to heaven. Those who use it for bad purposes will go to Hell. For every Mother Theresa there are 1 million people who use their free will to do evil or spread evil. There will be no escape in the next life from what you do with your free will in this life. You can count on this!!! Free will is a dangerous thing to be given by God. Use it wisely and only for good or else you will be very sorry in the next life. Jack

    @ Adam I have read many of secular books and grew up in a public school sytems that teaches nothing but evolution theroies and sold as facts. I agree there is plenty of evidence for microevolution, no one argues that evolution does not exist, but what Darwin suggested and failed to prove was that one species would evolve into another.. Apes to man for example. Problem is that is macroevolution and No, your wrong the fossil evidence does exist to prove macroevolution. I suggest you read up and quit believing everything your secular professor told you.

    Something I've noticed about the name of Jesus Christ is that it cannot be mentioned and just ignored. The name of Jesus stirs something in people....either revival or riot. There are people on this planet who everyday literally lay down their lives for the name of Jesus...it's because they serve Him and believe He is the Savior.
    There is no other religion on this planet that the followers are killed because of the god they choose to serve. Muslims may kill themselves in the name of their religion, but they are not thrown into prisons and tortured BECAUSE they are Muslim. Neither are Buddhists, or Hindus.
    There are countries where it is illegal to be a Christian. That to me is something to think about. This isn't something new either, when the early church started, the Roman Empire made it illegal, and Christians would be fed to lions.... I don't know of anyone who would be willing to die for something they don't believe with all their heart is true. They are willing to die for the name of Jesus because they know that only through him there is life, healing, forgiveness, and hope.
    Regardless to what anyone says after this post I hope that if I'm ever called to lay down my life for the name of Jesus, I will do so with the same strength and courage that millions of my brothers and sisters in Christ have done before me.

    Keep in mind (out of the 26 religious books) there are no other religious books outside the bible that has specific predictive prophecy with 100% accuracy.
    The bible told before any scientific equipment was available that He suspends the earth over nothing when at the time no One believed them. Hindus believed the earth was on top of an elephant that was standing on top of a turtle floating in the sea, Hebrews believed the earth was hanging on the back of Atlas, and others believed the earth was flat. No one believed the bible and now we see today when these same SCHOLARS thought the idea of the earth held up by nothing was absolutely ridiculous. in Job 26:7
    In Micah 5:2 before 800 years before Jesus was born the bible predicted that a messiah would come out a city called Bethlehem. Keep in mind this city only had about 1000 people living there at the time. That he would come while the temple is still coming etc. The bible told where he would die and how he would die. ALL 800 years before he was born NOONE believed any of this ( FOR THOSE THAT DONT BELIEVE JESUS EXISTED) There are over 39 sources outside of the Bible that attest to more than 100 facts regarding Jesus’ life, teachings, crucifixion, and resurrection. for example there was A Roman historian by the name of Flavius Josephus and Cornelius Tasitus that spoke of Christ in there writings, 2 very famous Roman Scholars at that time of century. Now listen carefully the Key word to this point, is that they were Romans, the Romans hated the Jews , they killed them for a living, so if Christ didn't exists why would they dare speak of him. (any history lovers? buy there writings, look them up Google, Wikipedia, etc) .There are 37 more sources outside of the bible that aren’t, Christian sources that talk about him.
    In the book of Daniel chapters 2- 10 He predicts that the defeat of Babylon by the combined empire of Media and Persia, and the later rise of the Greeks under Alexander the Great. Daniel also saw that the kingdom after Alexander would separate into four main divisions all of which would ultimately fall to the rising power of the Roman Empire. These events have all taken place, and have been recorded even in our history books. These prophecies were absolutely beyond control of the Israelites to predate this. Only a God that is all knowing would know this to happen before it did, because at that time period people did not believe him at all. Which emphasizes that the bible is the word of God Himself?
    From the first book of the Bible, Genesis, to the last book, Revelation, the Bible is absolutely consistent. With forty different authors, the Bible was written over a period of approximately 1500+ years, covering some 60+ generations. Not only were the authors separated from each other by hundreds of years in time, but many of the authors were separated by hundreds of miles geographically. Many people don’t realize this, but the Bible was written in a variety of places on three different continents. a. Africa (Egypt) b. Asia c. Europe (Rome for instance).
    Paul wrote four letters while imprisoned in Rome, “located in Italy.” The apostle John wrote while a prisoner banished to the Isle of Patmos in the Mediterranean Sea. The prophet Ezekiel wrote his work while held captive in Babylon. Jeremiah was in a dungeon. Luke wrote while traveling. Daniel wrote from a hillside and in a palace.
    Outstandingly the bible was written in three different languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek). How could all these writings from different areas and different languages all fit perfectly together supporting one main focus. You would think there would be chaos, confusion, and contradictions, yet the Bible miraculously remains absolutely consistent and internally harmonious from beginning to end.
    The list can go on, there are so many other verifications that weren’t mentioned due to time restrictions. This was all, to inform you that the bible is a book that is without era, reliable, trustworthy and 100% accurate. Test it for yourselves. Are there ANY QUESTIONS?
    Hasn’t the bible been tampered or altered, I mean how do you know people haven’t changed it overtime?
    Okay, one would think since the Bible has been translated into hundreds of different languages down through the centuries. But the text of the Bible has been accurately preserved all the way through. How do we know that to be the case? First, there is the manuscript evidence. Today, there exists several thousand partial and complete, ancient handwritten manuscript copies of the Bible, some dating as far back as the third century B.C. These manuscripts have allowed textual critics and scholars to verify that the Bible we have today is the same Bible the early church had.

    hi marion, I'm sympathetic to your reasoning. I believed it for more than 30 years myself, since that's what I was told.
    But then it started itching. There's so much proof. Re the age of the earth for instance – why did god fool us making us believe it was created 10000 yr ago? So he created it with dynosaur fossils? And with oil in it for us to spend in one century – how weird is that? And then all these miracles ... you would not believe.
    Your arguments indicate you read Darwin's work a bit too quickly. And the fossils prove the fact of evolution everyday more and more – how much evidence do you need?
    Anyway – this is not the right forum probably. I applaud an initiative to take religion a bit more lightheartedly, just as I would if it concerned atheism.

    Dear Sensitive Bible Thumpers. Let me point out a few facts:

    God's name IS NOT God, this is a man-made name (just like all religions, man made NOT god made. No one knows the name of god be it god a he or she or both or neither. I suspect god IS both male/female.

    Secondly; a) There NEVER was a Jesus Christ. There was a Nazarene whom attained "Christhood" i.e. Became Illuminated (this should yank all you conspiracy nut-jobs chain.)

    b)His name was NOT Jesus, There is no letter "J" letter in Greek or Hebrew. There is I or Y.
    Best guess is that his true name was YHShWH (in Hebrew).

    Conclusion: All you self righteous christians worship a FALSE god (God with a little "g") and likewise do not follow the true teaching (hypocrisy) of that MASTER TEACHER from Nazareth.
    Please re read Matthew and the Sermon on the Mount and stop lying how much Jesus has come into your life, he hasn't and you are one of the blind leading the blind.

    The Nazarene probably has (had) a good sense of humor however WE ALL crucify him within ourselves daily. Read carefully again what he said and DO NOT TAKE IT OUT OF CONTEXT. The truth and nature of all humans is keenly hidden in plain sight "for those whom have eyes to see......"

    @ Adam, so you don't have a soul? When you die your just worm food? Just curious if yur family member a loved one dies they just become new fodder for the earth or is there life after death?

    I have read Darwins theroies and I do remember Darwin himself stated in one of his books on evolution if the human cell or any living cell was not as simple a physical matter as he had expected his own theoried held no water. His philosophy was based on a smple cell way before DNA was discovered and now most scientist realize micro evolution is simply impossible based on the complex make up of one single cell. Why do you think they can tell a person by their DNA? Because everyones is different as our creator intended.

    No educated Christian or muslim or Jew would argue that macro evolution does not exist. It's obvious that within a species living creatures do evolve. However, there is absolutely no evidence on cross species evolution (micro evolution) which is what Darwin suggested. This is why it was a theory of his because he didn't have the fossil evidence then and neither do they now. Where are the fossils of a creature between species (frogs with wings), etc.?

    Even famous astronomer Fred Hoyle a non christian has little faith in Darwins theory.
    "The Intelligent Universe" , astronomer Fred Hoyle wrote the following infamous passage:

    "A junkyard contains all the bits and pieces of a Boeing 747, dismembered and in disarray. A whirlwind happens to blow through the yard.

    I would love to see this if Jesus was played totally straight about the bible and accurate and the stunned reaction of the people he meets. He being matter-of-factly about His powers and people just not getting it or mocking Him and in the end He is right. I always said Jesus cheats. It's easy to accept death when you know the future and answer others probing questions when you are all knowing. He would make an awesome fortune teller also BTW!!

    Although I agree that religious sensitivity is ridiculous, especially among Muslims and Jews, I think having the show star Jesus Christ is better than any of the other prophets. Americans know more about Christianity and are more exposed to Christian teachings, traditions, and hypocrisy. Maybe it will teach us something. If Abraham is shown one episode and Jewish groups get riled up, it exposes which religions can't be criticized in the US.

    I'm excited about this. If not for the show, then for the controversy that surrounds it.

    If you fathomed the transcendent and loving nature of God in His essence, you would understand how Jesus Christ should not be put into a cartoon. If the knowledge of God is in your head, then it makes sense why you don't understand this love, but if God is truly in your heart then these types of things even are much worse than mocking your own Mother, Father and family erroneously for all to laugh at and not take seriously. You cannot take lower the infinite into our finite minds, it doesn't work like that. These things point more to the insecure and immature nature of non Christians than any Christian who you would say does not "have a sense of humor" This is sick, and there needs to be a limit drawn somewhere.

    By subverting and demeaning Christianity, and the Muslim faiths, Lucifer worshiping Network owners of stations like the Comedy Network achieve their ultimate goal. The end of the love for the Supreme God and the expression of Nous the Messiah. The vilification of these religions being seen now (Christians are pedophiles and Muslims are Terrorist) will lead to a Global religion and ultimately the worship of Lucifer.

    The vipers who try to deceive want to bring you down to their parasitic level with mockery of importance and the respect for moral indecency seen in garbage like South Park and Sarah Silvermans anti Jesus untalented potty mouth of vulgarity.

    Freedom of speech is great in America as long as you don't pick on Jews, Gays and direct it instead to Christians and Muslims.

    Ok Dude, tell me. In whose name did Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot kill? Communism is a secular system. They each killed for their secular beliefs.

    If there is anyone who is self-righteous, it is those who do not recognize a higher moral authority than self. That sounds like someone in a secular system to me.

    Christians are not self-righteous. We recognize a God-righteous standard that is higher than we ourselves can ever hope to attain in this life. We are humbled before God by that fact, and very much aware that it is only through the blood sacrifice of Christ on the cross that we obtain right standing with God.

    "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
    Ephesians 2:8-9.

    Since we are sinners, saved by grace, how can we think of ourselves more highly than others? The standard that we put forth is higher than we ourselves can live up to, so there is no room for boasting.

    Yet our standard is Jesus Himself.

    I'm a Christian and this idea seems kinda disgusting to me. But I don't really care if they do it or not. The difference between Jesus and the muslims prophet is not just what they said. It's what they did. Jesus did something that trumps every word that ever came out of any prophets mouth for all time. He died for you. There's nothing funny about that, and, no comedy cartoon can cheapen it no matter how hard they try. And if they try, they will look like fools. The character they've introduced to south park is nothing remotely like the real Jesus. Anyone can wear the name. But until they' stretch out their arms and die for me, I don't think I'll be taking them too seriously. So comedy central can laugh on at their made-up jesus.

So order today, the 2 step REDUX-set, and start reducing your intelligence now, because sacredness IS an oppressive force! Better to get rid of it, and now you can!

    Comedy Central has no idea what they are doing. They are not disrespecting Christians, or Christianity. They are disrespecting Christ, the Savior, Who died for their sins. If they reject Him, what hope is there for salvation? They don't need to be concerned about reprisals from Christians. That should be the least of their worries. Christians are concerned for their eternal souls.

    “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
    Matthew 3:2

    I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live.
    Deuteronomy 30:19

    "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."
    John 3:16-18

    I'll probably watch, should this proposal ever make it to air. And I'll keep a log of who the advertisers are. And those advertisers will receive letters. Lots of letters. Angry letters. And I reckon the bad puiblicity wouldn't be good for business given the overwhelming Christian bent of this country.

    It puzzles me as to what would motivate Comedy Central to suggest a show such as this. What's next, a funny skit about the Holocaust? Or maybe we can get some laughs from animated Catholic priests raping young boys. Wouldn't that crack everyone up! That might be just the ticket for Comedy Central.... Or wait! How about gay men dying from AIDS? Talk about a hysterical show! Oh there's no limit to how far Comedy Central can go toward offending viewers for laughs.

    Seriously, is this how Comedy Central wants to create "comedy?"

    Neighbor, it's OK, just stick your fingers in your ears and go LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU! Maybe we'll go away and you'll win the debate. It's kinda like prayer. Maybe if I just WISH it to be it will be! I won't have to do anything, just pray! Unfortunately your religion and book is designed in such a way as to be invincible:

    My logic dispels the bible, such and such doesn't make sense, AT ALL? -> Well hey, that's GOD'S WILL, us measly humans can't possibly understand it, right? (Covers almost any criticism)

    No proof of god, WHATSOEVER? -> You just have to have FAITH, god works in mysterious ways and wants us to figure him out... (like blindly believing in something without any evidence is a good thing!?)

    Or the hypocrisy: The bible says this therefore it is literal truth! Oh, wait, the bible also says this, that, and the other, but I don't agree or can't possibly live my life that way, so it must be FIGURATIVE! God speaks in tongues and code, yeah that's it!

    I can understand all the talk about the shepherd when you all act like you're a bunch of sheep! Your religion is just as vile and violent as most of the others.

    Though He had the POWER to destroy every single person who nailed Him on the Cross, though He had the Authority to call upon the Army of Angels, He didn't do that, you know why? Because JESUS IS NOT A COWARD, HE IS THE KING OF KINGS. IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW YOU MOCK HIM NOW, THEY SPAT ON HIS FACE BUT HE REMAINED SILENT. HE WAS THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TOOK AWAY ALL THE SINS OF THIS WORLD TO THOSE WHO BELIVE IN HIM. REMEMBER THAT VERY SOON, AND YES VERY SOON HE IS COMING BACK AND HE IS NOT COMING BACK AS JESUS THE ONE THAT THEY NAILED HIM ON THE CROSS, BUT HE IS COMING BACK AS A JUDGE, HE WILL JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, THE RICH ND THE POOR. HE IS COMING BACK WITH GREAT POWER TO TAKE HIS CHURCH AND ALL THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT IN THE BOOK OF THE LIVING, THEY WILL SUFFER ETARNAL DESTRUCTION JUST LIKE THEIR FATHER, THE DEVIL.

    To all you bigotted narrow minded idiots trying to relate this to depictions of the Muslim prophet. ::

    IF there was a similarly strict prohibition against depicting Jesus within Christianity's doctrine, then yes obviously there would be some very volatile scenes and protest.

    The perfect egg on the face answer to the mainly Jewish Zionist interests which are stirring this pot was made by Iran when the original cartoon controversy was created about two years after the cartoons had actually first been released. The Holocaust (TM) cartoons which elicited complete censorship in the same media which gleefully spat on the beliefs of 1.5 billion people and which also elicited death threats and massive political reactions from the usual suspects.

    HYPOCRISY is more than just a word, it's a way of life in the Zionist infested West.

    I might add that I doubt the veracity of the tales of this Holocaust (TM) especially since its supposed victims have been proved to be the most brutal and non empathic people on earth and by expressing my doubts about some really quite ridiculous and sometimes easily disproved claims, is that I could face prison in some countries and death threats are common.

    If Comedy Central allows this, while backing down against the Muslims, then in my opinion its nothing but the actions of a pathetic bully. That is what bullies do. They try to find those who won't fight back and who they perceive as weak, and they abuse them and pick on them to make themselves feel better, but if challenged by someone who won't put up with it, they run away and try to save face by finding another victim to make fun of.

    Here is a definition of bullying from Wikipedia – you decide if it fits Comedy Central and South Park.

    "Bullying is a form of abuse. It comprises repeated acts over time that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful individual or group abusing those who are less powerful.[2] The power imbalance may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a target.

    Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as psychological manipulation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. Although the UK currently has no legal definition of bullying,[3] some US states have laws against it.[4]

    Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse.[5] Robert W. Fuller has analyzed bullying in the context of rankism.

    Bullying can occur in any context in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, the workplace, home and neighborhoods. It is even a common push factor in migration. Bullying can exist between social groups, social classes and even between countries (see Jingoism)."

You can go about your daily lives, hanging on Tiger Woods, Kate Gosslin, and Jesse James' every sin and mistake, but in the end you will finally realize the wool has been pulled over all of your eyes. The beast walks among men, and the moral decay and lack of obedience and love is just one more sign added on to a very very long list. Deny today, but without repentance, you will cry tomorrow.

    Simply, and sadly there is a certain degree of disrespect to Christians in this case.
    Shouldn't we greatly respect a religion who established the first schools and hospitals of western society? A religion that teaches values such as hope, truth, justice, forgiveness, love, to serve others...only to name a few. Are these not important values to have within our society? A religion that has been so integral in our society should not be so disrespected in such a way.

    Also, to those asking the creators to mock other religions, figures, etc. THEY HAVE AND DO ALL THE TIME. Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindu, they're *all* fair game to Matt and Trey. Along with every race, celebrity, etc. It's just a shame that Comedy Central censored Muhammed against Matt and Trey's wishes. That was a big loss for free speech and a win for the extremist Muslims.

    I "pray" that one day there will be no religion, and we can all love each other and do what's best for humanity and this earth. I "pray" that those of you who believe will someday see the truth, or at least abandon your organized religion and think for yourselves.

    "The simple question for Comedy Central is: why is Jesus perfectly okay to poke fun at in a "a playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb" [sic], but Muhammad is out of bounds? Could it be, for example, that the followers of the latter religious figure are not quite as peaceful, patient, and tolerant as advertised? Could it be that daring, "edgy" comedy actually depends on the existence of no actual risk?"

    Albert Einstein may have been a very brilliant man according to history, but he was a fool in God's eyes. What doth it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Matthew 16:26, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"

    Tristan,
    I regret responding to you with sarcasm, I am sorry. What I should have said was this: Anyone who will test the promises of God with real intent (meaning that when they receive a witness of the truth, they intend to obey) can receive a testimony of God and His Son Jesus Christ. I would invite you to read the Bible and ask God if it is true. I would recommend starting with The Gospel According to St. John in the New Testament, one of my personal favorites.

    Max,
    I don't know why you would assume all I am doing at church is praying? We learn how the teachings of Christ apply to our daily lives and how to follow His example of love and service. My participation in church gives me continuous opportunities to put off selfishness and provide service to others. We have donated millions of dollars and countless hours to provide community service at home and abroad. From disaster relief to helping a widow move. From providing thousands of wheel chairs to impoverished people around the world to spending a few precious moments with the elderly or sick.

    Southpark is offensive to my Christian values. The thought of a comical show about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is blasphemous!!! Jesus Christ is the one true God and that is why he is the only one the devils would make a comedy about. If you as a Christian watches this show they are giving up a part of their soul. Please stand up and say NO!!!

    @nailed – You didn't really address Chris' point regarding the Epicurius quote. This was an argument using logic, not authoritative decree.

    @Chris – Epicurius' error was in his logic. He assumed that only a malevolent god would be willing to allow evil. Not so. There could be other explanations – for example, if he wanted people to have free will instead of being robots.

    Whether or not you are a believer in Jesus Christ this is just not cool. Why can't people just leave others alone. People that believe in Jesus certainly do not need to be criticized and ridiculed. And, I agree with many people that have posted here that just leave Religion alone not matter what the faith and take comedy to other places.

    Can we produce similar funny TV shows on other type of comedy shows (for example making fun of a particula race or gender etc.)? If not, why based on religious beliefs?

    I would like to let those who are making the comedy show know that this is completely unacceptable and whether you believe it or not, they will pay the price for this one day. And the price might be too high and too late.

    JC meets a woman on the street "in-burka" and goes up to her to ask what it's all about (got a skin condition, avoiding the sun ?).....

    The voice of the 'woman' is a man's, and he says he is Mohammed and he is protecting all the camera-happy Americans from taking his picture and committing a sin (earth opens a crack and papparazzi fall through!).

    JC totally gets it and says "that sucks", lets go have some fun.

    ....so Mohammed and JC go to the fair and have an awesome time, and want to commemorate it by getting their photos done in the photo-booth.

    JC tells him its cool because he'd be taking his own picture.

    Mohammed nervously loses his grip on the coins, which fall into the slot after JC slaps him on the back and hollers "Go For it!"

    They strike 4 poses as the lights flash (Mohammed starts to have fun with shot 3 and 4, nervous during 1 and 2)

    They tumble out of the booth as Mohammed, laughing with JC struggles to put his burka back on.

    Someone recognizes Mohammed (somehow?) and a crowd gathers.

    Muslims in crowd murmer then shout about not being able to take his picture, Christians are outraged that JC would pose with Mohammed,

    Tense spaghetti-western music plays while the "Please wait" light is blinking, as the photos develop.

    Tense emotional music plays with focus shots on the eyes of JC, Mohammed (in burka) and crowd members.

    What happens next !!!!????

    Come on Comedy Central ! make it happen ! I'm anxious to see what happens next !

    Jesus didn't want his own life though. So if your going to do a show make it real. Unlike every one else in the world Jesus was completely selfless. He WANTED to do what his Father wanted. He wasn't forced or did it because he had to. He wanted to. I have to say that it is a lie to portray him as anything else, even if it is "incredibly funny." Today everybody lives for themselves, to make themselves look good, to make themselves happy, to do what they want. No one is interested in doing what God wants. So its not really a shock that some one is out there and thinks it would be hilarious to take Jesus Christ and portray him to millions of people as the EXACT THING HE IS NOT.

    Blasphemy is on many levels when it comes to the media in general. Yes, Christians, this is wrong, but what about all the other programs we watch on TV? What about the movies you allow in your homes that uses God's name in vain every time a character speaks?

    God is angry with this blasphemous non-believing world, but He is also angry at those who profess Christianity, but refuse to hold a Biblical worldview. We have conformed to the likeness of this world, throwing out everything we don't agree with, including this message and have refused the commandments of God.

    We as Christians, need to repent and humbly ask for forgiveness before God. We have hate as well on our hearts, which by God is also murder.

    We must never give in or give up. We must run the race till the end. We must help others, both Christians and those who are not. Our nation is in decay, and in order for us to be brought back to the place that Christ has for us, we must be obedient to His word and it's entirety.

    The signs are all around us, we must be ready and prepared. Let's get our house in order before a storm comes and our house is swept away.

    @ Chris, and what exactly were Jesus sins? Preaching peace and love, changing the we thought about society, ie, accepting those who were seen as less important such as the sick, the elderly, the poor, and women? Accepting people for who they are? He was hung on the cross by men for being a radical, for speaking out against the wrongs of society. He could have taken back what he had said and done, and spared his life, but he died to show how much he loved us. Cowards run, Jesus died for his faith, his beliefs, for what was right. And someone wants to make a show laughing at that, suggesting that these things were not important after all, and that if he could do it all over again, Jesus would be just a regular Joe, with no ambition, no morals, no faith, no love. Sounds hilarious.

    First off
    For those that are followers of Christ, . .
    make sure that we only use tactics of the bible, not of violence. We must not call unbelievers idiots and so forth. God still loves them just as much as he loves us. Pray hard over all there souls that they might be saved, from eternal hell fire. And of Course Let the producers know that you don't support this and how raged you are at them for even thinking twice about mocking our Lord and Savior. remember that Lucifer is certainly working, and they dont realize theyre being used as a vessel. Keep all of them in your prayers as we pray for each other and stand firm to the gospel that has been preached until we are taken away.

    For unbelievers
    .Keep in mind(out of the 26 religious books) there are no other religious books outside the bible that has specific predictive prophecy with 100% accuracy.
    The bible told before any scientific equipment was available that He suspends the earth over nothing when at the time no One believed them. Hindus believed the earth was on top of an elephant that was standing on top of a turtle floating in the sea, Hebrews believed the earth was hanging on the back of Atlas, and others believed the earth was flat. No one believed the bible and now we see today when These same SCHOLARS thought the idea of the earth held up by nothing was absolutely ridiculous. in Job 26:7

    In micah 5:2 before 800 years before Jesus was born the bible predicted that a messiah would come out a city called Bethlehem.Keep in mind this city only had about 1000 people living there at the time. That he would come while the temple is still coming etc. The bible told where he would die and how he would die.ALL 800 years before he was born NOONE believed any of this ( FOR THOSE THAT DONT BELIEVE JESUS EXISTED) There are over 39 sources outside of the Bible that attest to more than 100 facts regarding Jesus’ life, teachings, crucifixion, and resurrection. for example there was A Roman historian by the name of Flavius Josephus and Cornelius Tasitus that spoke of Christ in there writings, 2 very famous Roman Scholars at that time of century.Now listen carefully the Key word to this point, is that they were Romans, the Romans hated the Jews , they killed them for a living, so if Christ didn't exists why would they dare speak of him. (any history lovers? buy there writings, look them up Google, Wikipedia, etc) .There are 37 more sources outside of the bible that arent, christian sources that talk about him.

    In the book of Daniel chapters 2- 10 He predicts that the defeat of Babylon by the combined empire of Media and Persia , and the later rise of the Greeks under Alexander the Great. Daniel also saw that the kingdom after Alexander would separate into four main divisions all of which would ultimately fall to the rising power of the Roman Empire. These events have all taken place, and have been recorded even in our history books. These prophecies were absolutely beyond control of the Israelites to predate this. Only a God that is all knowing would know this to happen before it did, because at that time period people did not believe him at all. Which emphasizes that the bible is the word of God himself

    From the first book of the Bible, Genesis, to the last book, Revelation, the Bible is absolutely consistent. With 40 different authors. The Bible was written over a period of approximately 1500+ years, covering some 60+ generations. Not only were the authors separated from each other by hundreds of years in time, but Many of the authors were separated by hundreds of miles geographically. Many people don’t realize this, but the Bible was written in a variety of places on three different continents. a. Africa (Egypt) b. Asia c. Europe (Rome for instance).
    Paul wrote four letters while imprisoned in Rome, “ located in Italy.” The apostle John, wrote while a prisoner banished to the Isle of Patmos in the Mediterranean Sea. The prophet Ezekiel wrote his work while held captive in Babylon. Jeremiah was in a dungeon. Luke wrote while traveling. Daniel wrote from a hillside and in a palace.
    Outstandingly the bible was written in three different languages(Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek). How could all these writings from different areas and different languages all fit perfectly together supporting one main focus. You would think there would be chaos, confusion, and contradictions, yet the Bible miraculously remains absolutely consistent and internally harmonious from beginning to end.
    The list can go on, there are so many other verifications that weren’t mentioned due to time restrictions. This was all, to inform you that the bible is a book that is without era, reliable, trustworthy and 100% accurate. Test it for yourselves. Are there ANY QUESTIONS ?

    Hasn’t the bible been tampered or altered, I mean how do you know people haven’t changed it overtime?
    Okay, one would Think since the Bible has been translated into hundreds of different languages down through the centuries. But the text of the Bible has been accurately preserved all the way through. How do we know that to be the case? First, there is the manuscript evidence. Today, there exists several thousand partial and complete, ancient handwritten manuscript copies of the Bible, some dating as far back as the third century B.C. These manuscripts have allowed textual critics and scholars to verify that the Bible we have today is the same Bible the early church had.

In every prayer you make them sit through, in every "moral" law you pass re abortion, stem cell research etc., in every Easter or Christmas parade, party, holiday or tv show you put on.... life in Christian America is nothing but one, drawn out mocking of atheists.

    What I like about family guy is that they make fun of everything and everyone, using comedy to make points and get people thinking. I think this show is really for people who are able to laugh at differences, including their own, and not be offended. To me, this kind of honesty and candid humor is a refreshment compared to worrying about political correctness all the time. But that is just my opinion.

    "you won't know if there is an after life until after your life, now thats irony."

    That may be true unless you believe the scriptures to be the word of God – which means that you believe in personal revelation through the Holy Spirit.

    "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself." – John 7:17

    Some people have absolutely no respect for their religion or their prophets. I think we muslims care and have more respect for Jesus Christ (pbuh), than an average christian or catholic. First of all, we don't mention his name without following it by ( peace be upon him). We talk about him with the utmost respect as we do for all other prophets, from Noah to Muhammed (pbuh).

    Something I've noticed about the name of Jesus Christ is that it cannot be mentioned and just ignored. The name of Jesus stirs something in people....either revival or riot. There are people on this planet who everyday literally lay down their lives for the name of Jesus...it's because they serve Him and believe He is the Savior.

    There is no other religion on this planet that the followers are killed because of the god they choose to serve. Muslims may kill themselves in the name of their religion, but they are not thrown into prisons and tortured BECAUSE they are muslim. Neither are bhuddists, or hindus.

    There are countries where it is illegal to be a Christian. That to me is something to think about. This isn't something new either, when the early church started, the Roman Empire made it illegal, and Christians would be fed to lions.... I don't know of anyone who would be willing to die for something they don't believe with all their heart is true. They are willing to die for the name of Jesus because they know that only through him there is life, healing, forgiveness, and hope.

    Regardless to what anyone says after this post I hope that if I'm ever called to lay down my life for the name of Jesus, I will do so with the same strength and courage that millions of my brothers and sisters in Christ have done before me.

    Make your cartoon, don't make your cartoon. Believe in God, Don't believe in God. He gives you that choice, you just need to hope for your sake that you're right.

    Is nothing sacred anymore? I don't think any cartoon should be made about any religion. Why do people want so badly to ridicule religion? Why are people of any religion who believe in God laughed at and mocked, what exactly is so funny? Catholics are child predators, Evangelical Christians are crazy, Muslims are evil terrorists, Jews are cheap. I think those who believe in God, people of all faiths, should join together and go after atheists, make them feel as stupid as they try to make us feel. Oh wait, our faiths teach us to love our enemies, turn the other cheek, spread peace. And for that we are persecuted. The real crazies are such a small minority in any demographic, but that seems to be all that others can see.

    Some idiot wrote: "Can you point us out to any passage in the New Testament where Jesus was making a joke?"

    Problem with that is that the Bible wasn't written by Jesus. It was written by man. Therefore, I don't take it to be anywhere close to all inclusive. I treat it as any other book of stories. If God made us in the form of his son (Jesus), then that means Jesus was a sinner, Jesus had a sense of humor, etc.

    And for those who are thowing Bible verses and saying that people are going to hell, that's what YOU believe. It isn't necessarily what THEY believe. And who knows what's really going to happen? It isn't up to us. Remember that.

    Many christians and jews are ignorant of the fact that Muslims have NEVER made fun of any religious figures. I can challenge anyone to stand on Middle east soil (saudi, Kuwait , Qatar) and make fun of Jesus or Moses which could never happen. Any one can produce a book or literature from these countries that have blasphemised against Jesus or Moses. Why on earth western civilization take these people lightly? You cant be a follower of Christ and dont respect him, you cant be a follower of Moses if you dont respect him. These are people who have been sent by ONE CREATOR to call the people for HIS worship and follow HIS commands. It was Moses followed by jesus followed by Muhammed (may peace be on all of these). Wake up before we draw the wrath and turn in repentance and ask to be guided on the path that will get Allah/Jehovah/ELI ELI pleasure.

    How many people protesting the creation of the show actually watch Comedy Central on a regular basis. Based on the comments here, I'm going to say, "not many". CC only cares about what affects the number of viewers they have, so unless people who already watch CC on a regular basis write to them, I don't think they are going to do anything.

    I think its disgraceful that CC would depict Jesus Christ in a "cartoon." It's a sad commentary on how disrespectful many in the entertainment industry are towards Christianity and the contempt they have towards people who place their faith in Christ and the Bible. I agree with those who have written comments stating that such a program would never be considered about Muhammad. How are society has fallen!

    Can we all just remember..."CNN welcomes a lively and courteous discussion."

    Here the point. USA = Free Country. The freedom that allows someone to worship the Lord allows another to slap Him in the face with blasphemy. As Christians though, don't we believe that He loves ALL His children. Let's always set an example of respect and courteous interactions with those we disagree with.

    To address our concerns about content on TV – think of the impact if everyone who is offended by this writes a letter to Comedy Central execs asking them to not air this show. We, the consumers, drive the supply. And that is not about limiting freedom of expression, that is about asking for and honoring tolerance and respect. We don't have to push the bounds of civility to prove a point, in this case that in America you can create a show that is offensive to many citizens.

    I think it's ridiculous how many people are already offended when a) they've never seen the show and b) it might never air. I don't think Christians ask themselves that old question, "What would Jesus do?" nearly enough. Do you think Jesus would get offended and have a fit and start threatening people with fire and brimstone? Do you think God even has selfish, egotistical human emotions that would be hurt by a cartoon show? If you consider yourself a Christian and your concept of God is as simple as that, maybe you need to think more about what it means to be all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving.

    The issue really isn't that Comedy Central would dedicate an entire series to mock Christianity. The issue is that Comedy Central would never dream of dedicating an entire series to mocking other religions (Islam, Judaism, etc) nor would they ever dream of dedicating an entire series to mock races (Black, Hispanic, etc.). They are typical liberals in that they are mindless followers of political correctness and would be up in arms if anyone made fun of someone's race or religion except of course if the religion is Christianity and the race is caucasian. In the latter case, it's perfectly fine to be as offensive as you want to be. It's particularly outrageous for Comedy Central to propose this attack on Christianity, disguised as a comedy series, on the heels of their censorship of South Park relative to the mere mention of Mohammed. Unbelievable!

And rather than wait any longer, he comes back in a flash and condems all you idiots watching Comedy Central to hell. Yeah, now that would be funny! Only problem is that the only one laughing will be satan. Not to worry though, he gets it in the end too.

    The reason Christianity cant just be left alone (or for any religeon for that matter) is that you people who believe in fictional super beings are allowed to roam free and to make decisions that effect the rest of us grown ups. Belief in make believe creatures is for children. When adults shirk their personal responsibilites because "god said it should be this way" it cannot be tolerated in an evolved society. Grow up, think for yourself, gather accurate information, believe the science. Once you have an argument that is not based on faith you might be taken seriously. Religeon stifles human progress, inspires separation and hate, and has been the excuse for murder, war, geonicide, mutilation and slavery (not a complete list) For those religeous folks that are asking, "why cant you just respect our beliefs and leave us be?" – I have a ? for you. Why does the church dictate who can buy a liquor license and where? Why does the church get to decide who can and can't get married? NO MORE ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO GOVERN FROM FAITH.

    Many have foolishly tried in vain to wish away the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. There is only one True and Living God. He is the God of Israel. That is how the Almighty God wants to be known and addressed by all people, kingdom and nation.

    There is ONLY one way to have a relationship with God, and it is through the name of his only begotten Son, JESUS. He laid down his life on the cross because of our sin. He paid our debt with his life and blood to reconcile us back to God.

    We are talking about eternity here. Where will you spend yours. Only two options exits Heaven or Hell. The choice is yours.

    Make a joke, mockery and caricature of Jesus the KING OF KINGS at your own peril. Make no mistake, God is not Mocked. The earth and it's fullness belongs to the LORD God, that also includes your life.

    Please, before you the executives of the T.V station that intends to publicly mock the KING OF KINGS, go for your yearly comprehensive physical checkup with your doctor, and after you have had so much fun mocking God, go back for another medical checkup. Compare the results.

    The LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name is vain.

    I know plenty of Christians who watch South Park and have no problem with the Jesus jokes. Although, I believe Comedy Central will lose some respect from people of all Faiths (or no faith) when they are continuing to make fun of one religion while too scared to make fun of others.

    It is a matter of respect more than anything in my mind. Its like the school bully only picking on the "weaker" classmates.

    If I was the creator or producer of this new show, I would seriously be wondering if I could in good conscious go forward knowing I wouldn't do the same with Islam.

    So, if South Park shows even a picture of Muhammad, Comedy Central goes censor crazy, but then they turn around, just two weeks later, and start talking about an entire show about a wacky Jesus trying to get away from his even wackier dad? Do they not sense the hypocrisy? I'm Christian, and I've no problem with a Jesus cartoon.

    To the Christian folks who are offended and ask why a show is not also done on Islam/Muhammed: I am very confused by your reaction. You have every right to be offended, that is your business. But, the very man/god you worship preached peace and pacificsm. Are you not proud of that? You should be honored to know that others can make fun of your religion and its characters without fear of physical assault, etc. Didn't Jesus say you would be persecuted? So, let it happen and move on. Muslims on the other hand are shameful in that they do, in fact, carry out horrendous acts when they see their beliefs being mocked and fearing that is not cowardly but realistic.

    People that do not subscribe to the Christian religion do not have to follow any of its dogma (such as not taking the lord's name in vain, etc.) If you believe they will have to face a higher power or whatever as a result of their action then let that happen. The higher power shouldn't need any of your help if it is indeed so powerful.

    I don't mind a little humor about Jesus Christ; however, I believe a show about Jesus Christ would be crossing the line. What happened to respect of others beliefs or loved ones? I understand that as a christian I wouldn't have to watch the show; however, I don't want the show to represent Jesus Christ inaccurately. Its kind of like having a friend or a family member (your momma) represented inaccurately. If someone close to you was represented inaccurately you would get a little offended. Humor always has a line and it has to be careful not to cross that line, otherwise it is done out of spite, hate, disrespect, or to get a reaction, not for a healthy laugh that creates health, discussion, love, or unity.

    I disagree with people who don't believe in a religion but I won't attack them for their beliefs. Yet, why do these same people find it necessary to criticize and redicule those who have faith in a religion?

    Josh, I don't think a true follower of Christ is going to act in a similar manor to the Muslim radicals that recently threatened South Park with an agonizing death.

    No. A follower of Jesus Christ who believes that He came to this earth to seek and save people from all nations, tongues, tribes, skin tones, educated and uneducated or whatever.....

    No. I doubt a true follower of J.C would threaten to blow up Comedy Central headquarters and treat their exec's to a heinous death that involves chopping up their bodies and sending the body parts to various locations as a warning.

    Why would a true Christians seek to bomb Comedy Central instead trying to do what He asked of us to do? Simply, go into all the earth to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ. That means telling the people at Comedy Central, and even you Josh the message of Christ.

    I love when those offended cite the Bible as if that's supposed to scare people or turn them off from watching this. Obviously, this show is not intended for anyone who takes the teachings of the Bible very seriously. Those quotes about taking the Lord's name in vain come from the same book that contains this little gem:
    "Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything." Ephesians 5:22-24
    Ahh, yes. Let's all quote from the book that tells us women should act as their husbands slaves. Notice it says nothing of the husband doing the same for his wife. Sounds pretty righteous.

    To all the religious nuts out there getting a hair across your ass over this, grow up! Your fairy tales and beliefs are no more above scrutiny than any other myth, belief, or fairy tale. Welcome to a free secular society. Better get used to it because many people out there are waking up and realizing modern religion is no different than all the religions of old. If you find comfort in your warm blanket of ignorance that's fine, but don't expect others to tiptoe around it so as not to injure your insecure sensibilities. There was a time when it was punishable to speak out against religion because religion controlled the masses and governments, it was known as the Dark Ages.

    So the consensus is that if Comedy Central is going to make a cartoon about Jesus, they need to make one about Mohammed. The difference, of course, is that the Muslim religion accepts that Mohammed is not to be seen. So when you do a cartoon of him, that's punishable by death. Christianity doesn't have that little caveat. I have no problem with this, and I don't understand why people think this cartoon will be making fun of Jesus. I didn't see anything in the story about that. I'm a Christian, and I think it's a good idea. Who says Jesus doesn't have a sense of humor? I know he does, because I never thought I would have kids, and my fiancee was told she couldn't get pregnant. She did...with twins. Now tell me Jesus doesn't have a sense of humor.

    Yes, those who don't like it could simply change the channel. But I think its time to send these exec's a strong message. Not a message of physical violence mind you. No we can't have that. Instead, for those of you who are fed up with this kind of disrespect, I suggest sending a message of financial violence. Yep, attack their pockets. Find out who Comedy Central's sponsors are and stop buying their products. Contact your cable company are tell them you want Central off of your plan should this show get the green light.

    Its o.k. for South Park, and other animated sitcoms to do this because in these shows, Jesus is a recurring character – not a member of the main cast. While it would be interesting to see a pilot episode...there would, of course be too many limitations on the character to keep the series alive. They wouldn't be able to show Jesus having girlfriends or hanging out with so-called sinners, without judging them, because even some liberals, might have a problem with that – depending on how its handled. Conservatives would be insulted whenever the show took on, pretty much any, specific topic because many disagree, even amongst themselves, on a wide range of religious/political topics. The show would constantly be stuck trying to find ideas that qualify as neither crude nor bland.

    How sad that we live in a society where tolerance is only a beautiful theory.

As a Muslim myself, I am deeply embarrassed by other people who claim they are Muslim and react violently or otherwise against anything Islam teaches, so I know if I asked non-believers to be tolerant and respectful of believers, that might seem hypoctrical. But, two wrongs don't make a right.

    I wish Comedy Central would refrain from insulting something so sacred to Christians and Muslims (FYI, Jesus is our prophet, too). However, even if the creators move forward with this, the best thing for Christians, Muslims, and other believers to do is to be role models by example (honesty, purity, tolerance, and faith).

    This isn't ground breaking. Jesus Christ has been depicted in humorous animation for many years (obviously, "humorous" is left to the discernment of the viewer). "Family Guy" has Jesus Christ as a re-occuring character. "Robot Chicken" also visits the character frequently, depicting him in a funny yet religious light. "Moral Oral" was a three-season animated series about a child growing up in an overly-zealous Christian community. "Lucy, Daughter of the Devil" was an animated series that saw the devil's daughter (Lucy) dating Jesus Christ, who was a modern day performing artist a-la Cris Angel.

    Indeed, using Jesus Christ as a character of a TV show isn't shocking at all, it's actually quite mundane. Truth be told, if this show makes it to air it probably won't be half as offensive, or funny, or insulting as people imagine.

    Everyone is calling Comedy Central cowards for censoring the Mohammed episode. But maybe this show will just be their proof that they're not anti-muslim. Maybe they're just making sure Muslims know that they're equal opportunity offenders. I understand that they already depict JC on Southpark, but this would make muslims look even more ridiculous protesting one picture of Mohammed when JC has his own series. Or maybe their trying to show that a lot of Christians are hypocrites – they want Mohammed mocked but not Jesus.

    Now "South Park" can't even say the words "Prophet Muhammad." Hollywood Reporter
    After last week's episode of the Comedy Central series sparked a threat (and yes, it was certainly a threat) from a radical Islamic website, the network has cracked-down-for-their-own-good on creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone during last night's continuation of the show's storyline.

    For those who missed the drama, the show's 200th episode mocked the one "celebrity" that the show has been largely unable to depict, the Prophet Muhammad, who was hidden from view in a bear costume. A website then warned Parker and Stone they could end up like Theo Van Gogh (the Dutch filmmaker who was murdered by Muslim extremists after depicting Muhammad on his show) and even posted the address of the show's production office.

    Last night's episode continued the controversial Muhammad storyline, but with a key difference: every instance of the words "Prophet Muhammad" were bleeped out, making the episode practically incomprehensible, especially to anybody who missed the previous week.

    A Comedy Central spokesperson confirmed it was the network's decision to censor the words.

    The content is also not available on the South Park Studios website.

    The character of Muhammad was once again hidden from view, covered by a large block labeled "censored."

    Someone already did a novel-length treatment of this several years back. it was called "Lamb." Funny and thought-provoking. Jesus arrives in New York to write a book explaining where he got all those "funny" ideas - during the missing years (12 through 30) of his life.

    So many posts about "why not do a show about Mohammad?"

    Jesus, peace be upon him, is a Prophet in Islam. The only other religion to recognize him as a holy person. Islam is the only other religion to truly believe in the Virgin Birth. Islam honors and respects Jesus just like Mohammad and Moses.

    So quick to point out the differences.

    Yes, I am muslim. No, I dont like the reactions of other Muslims when Mohammad was depicted in a cartoon.

    I would be against both Jesus or Mohammad (or Moses, but we all know they wouldn't do that) to be depicted in such a way as in South Park. But that being said, I would simply change the channel.

    Too much hate.

    Interesting. Look how hard mankind tries to put Jesus in their own image... maybe to relate to Him more? Jesus dealing with shadows of His Father (when really, Jesus is just the human form of God). I know it's a comedy thing, but Jesus' ways aren't our ways.
    I think it's more interesting to think about how, maybe the creators of the show really just want to relate to God, but all they've got is what all who don't earnestly seek God have- a false representation. I hope they find what they're looking for. Since God created us, He's not too hard to find.

    Of course you should fear Him. He made you. He made the stars with His breath. And, He has promised to destroy you if you do not close with His son by faith. Why? Because you fell in Adam your Federal head.Jesus warned us all of this. There is no room for comedy in the bible or the life of Christ. This is life and death. Even worse–the second death which is spiritual and forever. Run to Him now before you find youself alone and in the dark forever.

    Western culture has been making fun of Christianity for years and in some cases brilliantly; who remembers the late great Irish Comic, Dave Allen who sat on a bar stool with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other, poking fun at his native Catholisism?
    Pure genius (look him up on YouTube).
    Mind you, a cartoon about Jesus in a modern world setting might offend some but it could also be hilarious too.

    This would be acceptable ONLY if Comedy Central were also willing to mock and ridicule Islam and it's "prophet" Muhammad. But since they have already demonstrated that they will kowtow to fanatical stone-age Muslims by censoring references to Muhammad in the recent episodes of South Park, all this does is provide further evidence that Comedy Central is controlled by clueless, hypocritical, moronic LIBERALS.

    It is the same stupidity over and over again, when people ran out of ideas or want to call attention the first thing that they do is behave stupid. In this particular case Comedy Central has both. They ran out of ideas, in order to make people have a good laugh and they are trying to call attention. I hope their stupidity buy them a ticket straight to HELL! However, that's not for me to decide.

    Tristan – Do you realize the crusades were a reaction to 500 years of Islamic aggression to Christians. It was Islam that instigated the wars of the crusades and not the other way around. They conquered all Christian lands in Western Asia, North Africa, Spain, and attempted Frankish lands as well but were crushed bu Charles Martel. Still they kept the violence going until the Western Kingdoms developed enough to make a response. They are still pursuing their aggression against the west with Jihadism and terrorism. Islam is as aggressive today as it has been since the beginning of their false religion preached by a false prophet in the name of conquest and political domination. Christianity teaches us to love one another and that God loves us more than we can imagine. Islam teaches "Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world's life for the hereafter; and whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward. [4.75] ...fight in the way of Allah... [4.76] Those who believe fight in the way of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the way of the Satan. Fight therefore against the friends of the Satan... [4.77] ...when fighting is prescribed for them...Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us?..."

    Religious parody is nearly as old as religion itself; but unlike religion, its persistence is ever so necssary. Satire is always the best way to criticize, and no belief is sacrosanct.

    Still, I doubt they'll ever top the moment when Jesus tells a terrorist that he's "packing," and proceeds to gun him down. classic.

    Honestly, folks, if all you've ever dealt with are idiot fanatic people who don't read the Bible, better yet study it, then please stop lumping us all into the same group. Just because someone calls themselves a follower of Christ doesn't mean they are one.

    There are those of us who actually live according to the bible, study the Bible, teach the Bible and are educated, rational people. So, yea, enough of the sideways comments and random scripture quotes that are out of context.

    Many have asked why not mock Mohammed, seems comedy is found in mocking Gandhi, Jesus or perhaps even Buddha, but Mohammed is 'off limits' If they do, they would have a fatwa issued to them and those responsible at the network.... courtesy from the 'religion of peace' So of course it's much much easier to mock the religions that encourage it's followers to forgive and forget.

This is very dangerous to God's eye or ear that we made fun about God. Please don't watch that stupid defy people whoever put foolish about God. That's Satan's influence the innocent people who don't know about God as thinking as innocous about God! Don't do it. I WILL REFUSE TO WATCH THAT STUPID SHOW!
