I can take joke, but joking about a historical and religious figure's torture and murder takes it too far. Please sign this petition, so that we can forward it to the people at Adult Swim to have this video, entitled "Everybody Hates Christ", removed from Youtube and officially banned by Adult Swim. This video makes the suffering and death of Jesus look like a joke. This is a complete insult and act of indecency. The media has gone too far this time. This type of stuff should not be shown on pubic TV, nor on recognized websites like YouTube.

I am asking all those who have some sense of respect, not only for religion and the beliefs of a large group of people, but also a sense of respect for a historical figure's life and death. [If you argue that Jesus was not real just because of the Bible, read up on Flavis Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews (written around 93–94 A), Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus' Annals (written ca. 116 AD), and the Tannaitic reference to the trial and death of Jesus (referred to as Sanhedrin 43a) at Passover in the Talmud. Even though the first two historians hated Jesus Christ and His followers, they still mention Him in their historical texts.]
They did this to Mohammad, and now they are doing it to Jesus in a far worse manner. All Christians need not hesitate in voicing their beliefs. Let us make this peaceful protest against this out right insult to our Lord Jesus Christ.
I also ask our non-Christian brothers and sisters to please join in supporting us in this effort, as it is also an effort to ensure that nobody pokes fun at a real person's torture and torment, for if they make fun of the suffering of great historical leaders, they will also make fun at the death of other innocents.
"Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also." [John 15:20]
This quote is the wisdom of Jesus Christ. Although those who would persecute Christ and his followers only prove him right, this is not something we should allow young people to see, as it can desensitize them to the suffering of others.
