TV watchdog coalition preemptively protests Comedy Central development of Jesus carto

Conservative and religious groups that have long complained about the irreverent treatment of Christianity on Comedy Central have a new target: an animated series about Jesus Christ living in modern-day New York.

It’s unclear whether the show — one of 28 projects the network listed last month on its slate of potential programs for the coming season — will ever make it out of script development. But that hasn’t stopped a coalition of media watchdog groups from launching an effort to persuade advertisers to boycott the project, if it ever comes to fruition.

The one thing about this is, from a religious or a non-religous viewpoint, I cannot see anyone, in my mind, who would enjoy watching a television show of this caliber on a rather overrated and dull 'comedy' network.

I do not think you have to be a Christian, necessairly, to see the lack of imagination in this. Why Jesus Christ? Why not make up some interesting dude - why take Jesus and put Him in the middle of this? What could possibly be so comedic about this? That evades me.
