Mary and Joseph billboard upsets Catholics
Posted by Mr DoctorE on December 17, 2009
Hmm Mary had the master of the universe before Joseph.. she felt nothing, zero; In fact the master of the universe had to send an angel to tell her that he did her with his omni-luft-dick..
Hmm I wonder what people will feel if some crazy insane nutter was sneaking around, breaking into houses and giving women IVF… giving teen girls IVF, but it’s ok if you are the master of the universe
A RISQUE billboard that depicts Jesus’s mother looking dejected after unsatisfying sex with Joseph has given Kiwi Catholics a nasty pre-Christmas surprise.
The huge ad erected in downtown Auckland today shows the unhappy couple in bed accompanied by the slogan: “Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow”.
In the fresco-style work, Joseph looks down red-faced while an anguished Mary looks to the heavens.
It was the brainchild of a progressive Christian church, St Matthew’s, whose vicar Archdeacon Glynn Cardy says it was a cutting-edge strategy to engage non-believers.
“Progressive Christianity is distinctive in that not only does it articulate a clear view, it is also interested in engaging with those who differ,” Cardy said.
“Its vision is one of robust engagement,” he said.
But the city’s Catholic diocese is not impressed, saying the implication that Mary and Joseph had just had sex was “disrespectful” and “offensive” to Christians.
Spokeswoman Lyndsay Freer told the New Zealand Herald it was particularly inappropriate given the inference was wrong.
