DC backs down from blasphemy

DC Comics has cancelled The Second Coming prior to its release:
Last August, Bleeding Cool interviewed the amazing Mark Russell about a work in progress, Second Coming with the also-amazing Richard Pace for DC Vertigo. It was solicited for March this year. It looked aces.

Then at the beginning of the year, CBR mentioned its existence, and it got picked up by a few Christian news websites, who stripped our interview for parts. Then Fox. Then Brexit.

Then a Conservative Christian site got a petition going. And almost a quarter of a million people have signed it.

None of them have read a single panel of this comic, a light sitcom of a satirical story that sees Jesus come back to Earth and room with a Superman analogue.

Nevertheless, today DC Comics told retailers that they have cancelled the comic entirely. No issue of it will be published.
It's amusing to see SJWs complaining about people objecting to a comic they haven't read. Because none of them ever said a word against Alt-Hero before the release of Alt-Hero #1, right?

At this rate, the entire new Vertigo line will be dead before we manage to get the first 12 Alt-Hero issues out. And speaking of SJWs:
Peter Simeti, owner of Alterna Comics, a publisher that has made its name with 99 cent, $1.50 and $2 newsprint comic books, was to do a live YouTube video with a comic book store. Simeti’s promotional effort at the comic book shop was cut short, however, and that video was pulled. Because, it appears, of the events he later outlined on twitter. The publisher had been confronted by police, with guns drawn. Police had been informed by some individual posing as Simeti that he had stabbed his girlfriend and was in a suicidal state of mind.  Fortunately, as he notes, officers were able to quickly and accurately assess the matter, and prevented a terrible situation from becoming much worse.
Only one of the many reasons I don't do speaking tours, book tours, or public events. Notice how his attempts to distance himself from #ComicsGate only made matters worse for him.

All the comments. F’ing hypocrites. We all know that if ANY imprint had as much pre-release buzz as this one, but whose book was about The Prophet......well we know the rest. 250k signed petitions? Plz. A one day tweet storm triggered by CAIR would be all it took for them to pull the plug AND go on an apology tour!

Very OT: I'm sitting at my business' window and see 2 diesel pushers complete with $30k SUVs in tow behind each one. Doors open and 60ish people walk out of each one. No kids, no grandkids. Boomers. Yeah, who knew?

"Light sitcom," "satirical." Because tee-hee, it's so funny.

These are words and phrases I would never use to blaspheme my Lord.

Seriously, would they do the same "satirical" story for Mohammed? (Not without death threats, that's for sure.)

I can remember when boycotts and petitions were considered worthless, or even counter-productive. The saying was, "There's no such thing as bad advertising." If there's one good thing the Internet and social media have done, they've made it possible for people who are genuinely offended by something (not just virtue-signaling) to sustain effective pressure on a corporation, at least now and then.

a light sitcom of a satirical story that sees Jesus come back to Earth and room with a Superman analogue.

Yes, totally light-hearted and not at all mean-spirited, I'm sure. What's the over-under on the number of issues until they would have had gay sex? I'm taking the under at four.

Lighthearted, fine.

Now turn the other cheek. The 'Blasphemer' brand won't fit on one.

The historical problem with blasphemy laws is that every innovation in Christian doctrine created a competing definition, and there's some truth to the old observation that internecine fights are more vicious and bloody than external fights.

Nonetheless, at this point I'd rather take my chances with my fellow Christians than with either the globohomos or the Muslims. I know for certain that both of them want me and mine dead.

Bring back the obscenity laws too.

There is no way that they could have possibly done that comic without blaspheming in multiple ways.

On the related topic of "get woke, go broke", here's the sad story of a guy who refused to get woke, but still went broke:

Whatever will I do without a blasphemous portrayal of Christ? Why not just change the focus to Mohammed.

Those awful, evil Christians with no sense of humor.

They should recast the role of Jesus and use the PedophileProphet instead.

That's not a suspicious name at all.

Milo deplatformed yet again. This time by CD Baby, the day before his rendition of gospel song "Silver and Gold" was to be released through their distribution service.

It's nice to know the Brexit vote had at least some positive effect! But really, whether it was Brexit, Breitbart or Bolsonaro that put the pressure on, maybe it's a sign that rather than having trained their companies to follow social justice pressure, the SJW infiltrators have really just weakened upper management to the point that now they will bow to anyone.

I can't click through to their link at "brexit" due to a cookie awareness overlay that I can't cancel ... Can anyone demystify me as to how brexit had an effect on this?

I'm, pretty sure they meant Breitbart.

Not a boomertard thread. Boomertards are always selfish

Hey Vox

I recently finished A History of Freedom of Thought, thanks for the recommendation. It was interesting to see the early stages of Liberalism infiltrating the Church of England and how no one could fathom Europe's culture changing so much that Islam would get a foothold there one day. I wonder if those in the enlightenment would change their actions if they could see what was coming

I'm now onto The myth of the Andalusian Paradise

To paraphrase Owen Benjamin: We have blasphemy laws, they are enforced against anyone whom blasphemes against Satanism. Don't believe me? Say something homophobic or transphobic and watch what happens.

If we're going to have anti-blasphemy laws, we're going to enforce them against the SJWs, too. The complaints when we enforce their own rules against them are music to my ears.

Most of the Enlightenment thinkers were anti-Christian, and overall the enterprise was an anti-Christian intellectual revolt, sparked in part by the sectarian violence of the 30 years war.
