Today's letter from the "American Family Association":

Comedy Central set to blaspheme Christ with "JC" show

The Comedy Central network is planning a cartoon series about Jesus Christ entitled "JC."

Dear Charles,

In its promotional material for the program "JC", Viacom describes Jesus as a "regular guy" - rather than the Son of God - and depicts him moving to New York to "escape his father's enormous shadow." The Father is depicted as an apathetic dad virtually addicted to video games and totally uninterested in his son's life.

So Comedy Central is set - unless we intervene - to blaspheme two-thirds of the Trinity on a weekly basis.

See how we expect Comedy Central to mock Christ by viewing this previous offering of anti-Christian bigotry from the show "South Park." Warning - It is offensive, but depicts the animosity the network has toward Christianity.

Yet in recent weeks Comedy Central bowed to pressure from Islamic groups and heavily censored an episode of "South Park" that showed Mohammed in a bear costume. The hypocrisy here is staggering.

Comedy Central shows more respect for Mohammed and for Muslims, who represent two percent of the American population, than for Jesus Christ and the 83% of Americans who believe in him.

We need to send a loud, clear message to Comedy Central and all potential advertisers of "JC" that this kind of insulting programming is completely unacceptable. If we speak with one voice now we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day.

Sign our petition today and make your voice heard. This petition, with your signature on it, will be sent to the decision-makers who will determine whether this program airs.


So, here are my points:

- If you're offended, don't watch. Do not tell me I can't watch/support it.
- You got your way with the "V Chip" -- now use it and shut up!
- Comedy Central was WRONG to cave into Islamic groups and they shouldn't cave to CHristian groups either!

Thanks for re-broadcasting the video with everything taken out of context -- it made me laugh thinking you think people will believe only your viewpoint. Isn't that what started rebellion against religion to begin with? You tried to control every aspect of everyone's lives -- starting with freedom of speech and the press.

I'd sort of sad to see the public is turning it's back on all sorts of religion, as I believe there could be a good use for them... However, because they're being proven to be the biggest hypocrites in the world from such examples as priests that abuse and molest children, sexually frustrated nuns that take their pent up sexual aggressions on children to Ted Haggard (who was a drug using closeted homosexual), they are losing their flocks in record numbers.

Thank goodness for the internet, where freedom of speech and mass-communication can't be stopped by you lot!

i do believe in The Father son and the Holy Spirit, i just don't beleive in the people that decided they are worthy to dictate and judge others without juding themselves.

That said, what the hell happened to freedom of speach? This right was decided after Americans spilled thier blood. People always scream that the Founding Fathers wouldnt want this or that, or never had that in mind. However they DID have freedom of speach in mind. People are cowering to this one religion, where they have never cowered to any other religon.

Freadom of Religon is alsoe the right not to have a religion, or let one push us around.

Unless, of course, you live in a country where the government has decided that they will decide what you can and can't see on the internet. Greetings from Australia :(

I know of China's "great firewall", but what's this in Australia?

Do a Google search on Conroy filter. Senator Conroy is the Australian Federal Communications minister. The filter was sold to the electorate as a protection against kiddie p0rn but it's going way beyond that now. It's biggest supporter is a group called ACL (Australian Christian Lobby), which should give an indication of where this thing is going.

As an extract from a recent news article puts it - "Refused classification material includes child pornography and detailed instruction in crime or drug use. But it also includes any material that the Classification Board judges will "offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults".
