    I saw this and am just amazed that Comedy Central wants to do this. They lack the stones to show Mohammed hiding in a bear suit and yet don't seem to see the inappropriateness of this.

    *********************************************************
    Conference call: CARB protests Comedy Central series JC
    conference call staged by Citizens Against Religious Bigotry (CARB), which is protesting a decision by Comedy Central to air a new series titled JC, a satire of Jesus Christ and Christianity.
    Bozell talked about a “glaring double standard” at Comedy Central. The outlet refuses to air any satirical content that targets Islam, but has no problem airing criticisms of Christianity, Judaism, and other religions. Bozell says JC is “designed to be offensive to Christians. … “We know they are jumping up and down with glee” at the publicity CARB has created, but they feel the need to speak out regardless. Eighty-three percent of Americans consider themselves Christian, “but you don’t have to be Christian to be offended” by anti-Christian bigotry, Bozell said. No “decent” company will want to sponsor this show, and they plan to make that clear to their list of sponsors.

    Why are you surprised? Christians don't kill people who upset them, only Muslims do that. It takes real balls to insult Muhammad, and none to insult Jesus.

    Who cares? If you're so easily offended, don't watch Comedy Central. I doubt they'll care. I know that I don't.

    Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing. If you don't like it, don't listen.

    I'm not planning to watch the series. I'm also not going to murder someone or threaten violence because of it. We all have to face God someday. And I don't intend to do so with blood on my hand.

    Jesus is an angle of the god. He gave his own life sacrifice, for the sins of the others. He showed the fact that a person should believe in God which is like merciful and kindness. Some people had followed him while some where making fun of him as well as hated him for his kindness. He live in every human being who believes in him.

    Does that mean they can't make cartoons about him?

    Those who feel the need to mock any religious figure are simply covering up for their own inadequacies.

    Indeed, Allah seems to be the little God that is so insecure he needs fanatics to defend him with threats of death.

    Allah is so weak he can not persuade people, he has to threaten them.

    This is a God that should have died in the Stone Age. This is the God that can not dream beyond sticks and stones.

    Comedy Central is chickenshit.
