According to Comedy Central, the story line would have included Jesus moving to New York City to "escape his father's enormous shadow
" in order to live a normal life. The network said that God would have been portrayed as an "apathetic
" father, obsessed with playing video games.
In April 2010, Comedy Central censored South Park's depiction of the prophet Muhammad after intense Muslim protest. Click here

The liberal media has had a double standard for Islam and Christianity for several years. On one hand, they go the extra mile to respect Islam. On the other hand they malign, mock and defame the Christian faith shared by tens of millions of Americans.
It appeared in May 2010 that Comedy Central may not show the same respect to Christians regarding their plans for developing the program JC that they did regarding South Park’s depiction of Muhammad.
Florida Family Association felt enough is enough with the liberal media's double standard regarding the Christian faith. Florida Family Association prepared a campaign with an email for supporters to send to Viacom and MTV network officials urging them to cancel plans for the JC show. The emails from supporters informed Viacom and MTV network officials that “If Comedy Central follows through by airing the JC show, Florida Family Association plans to record all episodes of the program and send out future email alerts regarding the companies who support it with their advertising dollars.”
Thousands of supporters sent emails to network officials. Florida Family Association sent out three email alerts regarding this issue during the past eighteen months.
The year 2011 has come to an official end. Comedy Centrals plans for the show JC within the “development slate for 2010/2011” did not materialize.
Florida Family Association would like to thank the thousands of supporters who sent emails regarding this soon to be deactivated issue. Your emails made a difference. Thank you.
