OneMillionMoms.com, an action-focused division of American Family Association, is urging Americans to contact the originators of new late-night programming on the Cartoon Network that portrays Jesus as a foul-mouthed, violent man with a message of anything but love.

Late-night shows on the Cartoon Network fall under the block known as “Adult Swim,” and a new program in the lineup includes the non-animated show Black Jesus, which portrays the Son of God as a “black guy living in the hood.” The blasphemous, irreverent and disrespectful show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of the Lord.

Cartoon Network recently posted on YouTube a trailer for the show, which debuts Aug. 7, and frequent foul language in the trailer alone is shocking and disgusting. In addition, violence, gunfire, drinking and other inappropriate behavior completely misrepresent Jesus.

“The garbage that passes for entertainment continues to disturb us,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “This new show is a complete misrepresentation of Jesus Christ and the message of hope and salvation He brings to the world. Even the three-minute trailer was too vile to watch, with multiple uses of the f-word by the actor portraying Black Jesus. Christians and anyone who believes in respecting faith must come together to make sure this program never airs.”
