That is kinda perverted. I am quite sure many Christians will be offended.
While I have no respect for Christian beliefs I generally do have respect for them as people and would not want to harm or offend anyone no matter how delusional they had become. But I think there should be a limit to the ridicule that we would be prepared to initiate.
Even though I see gods and the Jesus fiction in the same light as fairies, lepracauns, and other imaginary characters, and we often consider these latter objects in a light-hearted manner, there is a qualitative differnce when compared to a major religion which many take very seriously.
It is one thing to ridicule the obviously ridiculous, but to ridicule something knowing it will also offend is a questionable practice. However, it is good that Christians see this and realise that there are many who do see their beliefs as quite ridiculous.

When did Jesus become off-limits for political cartoons?
As a longtime fan of one-framer political cartoons, I have to give that a thumbs up. As far as burning, Malaclypse, I must say that if the God of heaven and fire is real and supreme in the Universe, the only way He could exist is with a broad enough sense of humor to know that in its own way, such parodies of his Son are good for people.
Therefore, you get a Golden Ticket, admission for one.
And if they refuse, the Summerland is taking all competitors' coupons because it can't work any other way.

I am actually glad that you posted this. You see the world has more faith than they realize. what do most say when something happens. they either say Jesus Christ, or they ask God to damn the thing. I don't think that it is a lack of belief, but a lack of love.
What ever to get jesus spread out to the world.

For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
(Romans 11:30, KJV).
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
(Hebrews 3:12, KJV).
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
(Hebrews 4:11, KJV).
