Yet you found my christmas card "extremely offensive"?
Does not compute for this clown.
OBlimey, your cartoon of Jesus of Nazareth--the Christ of Christmas--being sodomized by Santa registers an offensive of a completely different order than this bloody gif nomo originally posted. The difference in order is the difference between the sacred and the secular. Your cartoon desecrated the Christian God and King of the universe, who--if the prophetic scriptures are true--you and every one of us will bow and confess that He is Lord.
And let me say, Seamus, I got the joke of the cartoon, and the profound truth that it was depicting. Nevertheless, it grieved me. But I'd like to point something out. Few people are going to be grieved and offended by the above gif. You'd have to have some serious corporate loyalties to be offended by the king doing a drive-by on the clown. Few people worship Ronald McDonald, he is not a God.
Here's a further difference that I hope might underscore the severity of your offense and the understanding, forgiveness and grace you will get from me and true Christians at your Christmas Card. When a person in many parts of the Muslim world desecrates Allah or his prophet Mohammed you have riots and calls for the death penalty. On the other hand when Jesus Christ allowed himself to be desecrated and hung naked on the cross so that he might take upon His body the offenses of the world (i.e., our sins), Jesus prayed, "Father forgive them for they do not know what they do." And in like manner, OBlimey, I extend my grace to you. I only wanted you to respect my sincere love for the Lord of the universe. You might not presently acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, but my knees are bowed to Him as God.
