A TV series finds Jesus living in present day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers. – IMDb
Tonight (at 11pm EST to be exact) will see the debut of BOONDOCKS creator Aaron McGruder’s new Adult Swim show, BLACK JESUS. Yep…Black Jesus. I can just see the switchboard at the FCC lighting up with calls from every conservative Christian group in America once this thing actually hits the airwaves. The angry ladies over at One Million Moms (you would think they would change that name since they have nowhere near one million members) have already taken to the Internet screaming about “blasphemy!” and calling for the Cartoon Network to cancel the show before it ever even airs one episode. To that I say: grow a sense of humor, you grumpy cows!
The trailer for this show looks hysterical and seems like a return to irreverent form for McGruder who abandoned his once great BOONDOCKS series to helm this new show. I can’t wait to watch it and just let the blasphemy wash over me like a warm summer breeze because a weed smoking, fine yak drinking, foul-mouthed Jesus who hangs out in the hood all day is exactly the type of messiah I have been looking for.
