So Comedy Central is developing a new animated series “about Jesus trying to live a normal life in New York.” He is there “a regular guy,” hoping to “escape his father’s enormous shadow”; dad is presented “as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life.”
Although there is yet to be a completed script, an outfit called Citizens Against Religious Bigotry (CARB) has formed to keep the thing off the air. The CARBs “call on Comedy Central and its parent company Viacom to stop this blatant anti-Christian attack.”
The CARB people should back off. Terry Gilliam already went there, with The Fisher King. Everything worked out fine.
