Christians Call for Boycott of New TV Show 'Black Jesus'

"The Boondocks" creator Aaron McGruder has come up with a new controversial comedy show entitled "Black Jesus" for the Adult Swim network.

A trailer (below) for the TV program portrays Jesus as an African-American living in the predominantly black city of Compton, California, which is part of Los Angeles County.

Black Jesus, played by Gerald "Slink" Johnson, tries to spread love and kindness while people ask him for winning lottery numbers and gang bangers harass his neighborhood. Black Jesus occasionally curses, but his profanity is bleeped out, notes The Christian Post.

However, Christian-based activist group One Million Moms and Pastor David A. Rodgers of the House of Prayer for All Nations Ministries in Chicago want the show pulled before it airs.
