Comedy Central considers show about Jesus Christ

Having already caused a fuss this spring with the depiction of the prophet Muhammad on “South Park,” Comedy Central said Thursday that it has a cartoon series about Jesus Christ in the works.

“JC” is one of 23 potential series the network said it has in development. It depicts Christ as a “regular guy” who moves to New York to “escape his father’s enormous shadow.”

His father is presented as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life, according to Comedy Central’s thumbnail sketch of the idea. Reveille, the production company behind “The Office,” “Ugly Betty” and “The Biggest Loser,” is making “JC.”

It wouldn’t be the first time Jesus Christ has been on a Comedy Central cartoon; he’s a recurring character on the long-running “South Park.”

Comedy Central was the target last month of an Internet threat for a “South Park” episode that supposedly showed Islam’s prophet in a bear costume.

Whenever “South Park” features Muhammad in an episode, Comedy Central obscures the character with a black box; Muslims consider any physical representation of their prophet to be blasphemous. Following the Internet threat, Comedy Central angered “South Park” producers by editing out a character’s speech about intimidation in a subsequent episode.

“It’s not certain what is more despicable: the nonstop Christian bashing featured on the network, or Comedy Central’s decision to censor all depictions of Muhammad,” said William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights.

Comedy Central wouldn’t comment on Donohue’s statement, said network spokesman Tony Fox, who declined to give further details about “JC.”

A development deal is a couple of steps ahead of a series making it to air and, in fact, most such deals don’t result in series. The network would have to like the scripts enough to produce a test episode, then like that enough to put it on the air.

Stephen Baldwin needs your money

May 6, 2010

Restore Stephen Baldwin is one of those things that is so crazy you hope it’s a joke. According to Restore Stephen Baldwin, Stephen Baldwin—an anti-gay, born again Christian—is Job, from the Bible. Like Job, he is suffering because of his faith. Stephen Baldwin/Job turned his back on Hollywood because of his belief in God, and not because he was a terrible actor. Now he is broke. We must now launch a movement to “restore” Stephen Baldwin from the condition of not having any money by donating via PayPal or major credit card. In this way, Stephen Baldwin will be able to focus less on collecting bottles to buy a Hot Pocket for dinner and more on spreading the Gospel.

See, according to the video, Stephen’s shame is God’s shame:

He has been publicly ridiculed and insulted by people who think that he has been abandoned by God. A simple search through the internet will reveal that people not only mock Stephen, but mock God as well.

And Stephen’s restoration will be God’s restoration:

Our vision is to see stephen baldwin publicly restored in front of millions. Stephen’s platform will increase, allowing him to reach even more people with the gospel, and god will get all of the glory, Publicly

Obviously, after watching this video you want to help. But how? Is there some sort of movement to join? A prayer to say? No. There is only a “donate” button to hit, with the default donation being $4.21 because that’s the passage from the Book of Job that inspired Baldwin to set up his spiffy begging website. This is essentially a website where you can directly contribute to Stephen Baldwin’s rent.
