'Black Jesus,' Though Crude at Times, Is Honest and Accessible Portrayal of Christian Savior, According to Critics

The Christian Post - Sun, 08/31/2014 - 9:00am
"Black Jesus," a live-action comedy series airing on Adult Swim, drew swift condemnation before its premiere in early August.

They called "Black Jesus" blasphemous, disrespectful to African Americans, and just all around a bad idea.

We still will think and remember, but our thoughts will be perfected too. We certainly will know each other in heaven—and infinitely better than we knew each other on earth.
