Religious Fanatic Attacks Poster of Virgin Mary

Well I suppose it was too real to be tolerated. A poster of the Virgin Mary receiving a pregnancy test.

So a religious fanatic attacked it with a pair of scissors.

"This is Satanic, this is the ultimate Satanic attack, when Lucifer attacks his worst enemy, the Blessed Virgin.

"This particular church - so called - is run by a gay, feminist-type lobby. They claim to be Christian and yet they put up a blasphemous image of the Blessed Virgin, attacking her virginity and the fact that she was the mother of Christ, the God-Man."

Even though the poster's message was gentle and human. 

The motivation for the poster was to get people to think about the social circumstances Mary faced when she found out she was having a child, he said.

"That she had been accused of having an illegitimate child, that she was a poor, young woman. This was a woman of tremendous courage and faith, she's not a sort of plasticised icon, someone who doesn't have human feelings.''

So why am I not surprised? The only thing that surprises me is that the religious fanatic didn't use a coat hanger.

And what would Jesus say?

By their ugly words we will know them.

By their violent actions we will judge them...

I always find it interesting (and sad) that the Catholic Church goes ape shit to defend the sanctity of women when it involved Mary but seems to lose interest in treating other women with the same amount of respect.

hi Way Way Up...I don't consider that poster to be disrespectful, because if I did I wouldn't run it. I think it reflects the humanity of Mary the woman, and the reasons the old eunuchs who run the Catholic Church don't respect women is because they can't accept that humanity. Sexual repression can turn humans into monsters, and in the case of the Catholic Church the results are sadly obvious...
