    Poor crucifix used as a toy. I’m sorry I don’t like it because I love too much Christ to see Him represented this way as a toy, but I understand the point because there are people that use Him instead of listen to Him and learn of Him. I’m sad, very sad. All my life trying to be a good Christian, having friends of different religions or not religion at all, believing in that Christ message of loving each other as He loved us, and then seen how he is treated and here portrayed as a toy in a political war. Yes, I’m deeply sad but this will not change my ideas about the situation in the Middle East an particularly between Israel and palestinians. I still think Israel is smashing palestinians without regards to the international and humanitarian laws and rights because they are powerful and have a powerful protector and that palestinians have a lack of support even in some of the arab states and they are suffering for too long a bitter agony and their people needs help. I wear a chain with a cross in my neck because I’m proud to be Christian I hope this will not be an offense to you. I’m not offended when people of other religions wear symbols or their faith. Maybe is that because saying the toon my first reaction was sadness.

    There is a difference in humor in regards to religion and humor to degrade peoples faiths and border if not cross the line to sacrilege. I don’t consider myself as Christian or a member of any religion. But I do read the Bible and Koran from time to time. So I can say from my own observation of that Picture that it was not made to insult those of true faith in Jesus. But rather to be used as a satire on those “Christians” who sell the word and image of Jesus as a merchant would sell a TV set or a pair of socks. The ones who truly offend me and should offend every self respecting Christian are those cross that line to sacrilege! (Examples below)


    I wanted to put Sarah Silverman’s insensitive remarks up. About how she would crucify Jesus again. But could not find a video without the explicative language on it. I also wanted to put up Penn and Teller’s show on HBO drilling a 3 to 4 inch hole in the Bible. But could not find it.
    These Jewish Actors and Comedians are the ones who seem to go out of there way to offend and denigrate any one who believes in the savior. No matter if they are Christian or Muslim!
    As opposed to me seeing a practical joke that was on some foreign TV show. Showing a nun putting up a crucifix and when she leaves the room,seeing other person face(that was helping her)freak out because it starts to bleed. Do to someone using red dye in a syringe in the nail holes on the other side of the wall. That to me was funny! Because it did not call the question there faith or said how they would kill Jesus again. I hope I made my point.
