Oh The Blasphemy ( That is a sarcastic title in reference to the demands that AMC remove Preacher )

Here is a clip from Preacher on AMC where the descendant of Christ ( who has been inbred to preserve the bloodline ) is revealed. It is a comedy satirizing religion and conspiracy. Of course christian groups are screaming to have it removed. We would never see similar satire of Muhammad on TV. The South Park creators , for example, wanted to air a satirical skit of Muhammad on Comedy Central, as they have of Scientology, Jesus and Joseph Smith but were not permitted to do so. Is that due to fear of a Charlie Hebdo inspired murderous incident ? Just to be clear to replies that do not get sarcasm - I do not really think this is blasphemy. On the contrary, I think it is an exercise in free speech.

Meh, doesn't look like my kind of show.

The thread was not intended as an endorsement of the show but to ponder why satirizing Christianity is tolerated but Islam is not.
