Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow.

If you’re wondering what’s making baby Jesus cry now, the answer is a new billboard put up by a New Zealand church to foster conversation over the absurdity of literalism:

Yes, a church put this up. Of course the Catholic Church went ballistic, not about all the child buggery within their walls. . .but over the billboard. The local Catholic diocese responded thusly:

“Our Christian tradition of 2,000 years is that Mary remains a virgin and that Jesus is the son of God, not Joseph,” she told the New Zealand Herald. “Such a poster is inappropriate and disrespectful.”

You know they mean business because this is far more outrage than they’ve ever expressed over all that child buggery they’re responsible for.

Of course it wasn’t more than a few hours before those moral Christians decided to take the law into their own hands:

Catholic justice. Of course, I find it amusing that it’s brown. That Mary sure is into some kinky stuff. That’s the grossest money shot I’ve ever seen.

    That’s weird that they say Mary always stayed a virgin; didn’t even the Bible say that Jesus would end up having half-siblings who were children of Mary?
