Charlie Brown Converts to Islam?

Comedian Denis Leary‘s production company, Apostle, posted a Charlie Brown spoof that is sure to cause some laughter, anger and — confusion.

Perhaps Gothamist describes it best as a “very uncomfortable jihadist joke.” The premise of the short clip is that Charlie Brown converts from Christianity to Islam. As the video progresses, its themes become increasingly controversial.

What starts with Charlie saying, ”I’m so depressed. I think I’m losing my faith in Christianity,” ends with the beloved character in hell awaiting 72 virgins. Leary, who’s been known for his controversial work and commentary in the past, tackles other issues as well: praying facing mecca and Islamic garb, among other elements.

May 20, 2010: Freedom Day-Everyone Draw Mohammed Day-Updated with New Pics from Today

A lot has been said since the “South Park” incident. Comedy Central edited the episode, but then later came out with the news they are making a “Jesus” cartoon. Reactions were very much different. Christians did not get angry, throw insults and make death threats as some Muslims did to the producers of “South Park”.

Much is a stake here. Many have died protecting the freedoms of Americans. One of those freedoms is the freedom of speech. There are many outside our country and many within our country trying to curtail and abolish this right we have given under the U.S. Constitution. Do not give in, do not be intimidated or scared, however, stand tall and proud. Stand up for your rights and the rights of all Americans to voice their opinions, thoughts ideas and so forth.

God Bless America! God Bless Freedom!

As a Christian, I see how badly Christians are treated day in and day out around the world. I also see Buddhists and Hindu’s slaughtered around the world. And even so, I do not see or hear of these religions threatening death to innocent life. I see tolerance, love and peace in these religions, not death and murder.

God Be With You Today.
