(Creator of Boondocks) Aaron McGruder’s “Black Jesus” hasn’t even aired and already Christians are up in arms, demanding that the show be canceled. The Christian activist network One Million Moms and a flurry of pastors have taken offense at the character.
In the show, Black Jesus lives in Compton, California and goes on a “daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.”
David A. Rogers, pastor of the House of Prayer for All Nations Ministries in Chicago, Illinois, calls the show “utter foolishness and disrespectful” and wrote a letter to the Turner Broadcasting system expressing his outrage.
OF COURSE WE WOULD THESE CRAZY ASS WHITE RELIGIOUS POEPLE EXPRESSING DISGUST FOR THE SHOW. Would it be better if Jesus lived in South Dakota and were portrayed as the stringy haired, pale face and blue eyed image that has poisoned the minds of so many?
Aaron McGruder is not one of these who conforms to White America’s definition of a patriotic citizen. Mr. McGruder knows of the lies taught across United States lands in our history classes. He knows the lies told on mainstream TV about foreign affairs and governmental hypocrisy.
To the religious people out there who don’t question much or anything – I hope one day your minds will be open to the truth. There is a God | Higher Being(s) as we cannot be that is all. But, we don’t know all the answers, and that is the beauty of life.
