Why Messianic Jews?-Menorah.com
Besides it being a new premise here in America that individual free speech must be suppressed in order to 'safeguard' the rights of others (most of whom aren't complaining in the first place, and there will always be those who will complain about anything-my neighbor Burt comes to mind) to claim that any one particular group of citizens are going to be naturally offended by the name of Christ now and for eternity is the height of arrogance and patronization. Just ask any Roman citizen post-Constantine, or take Messianic Jews as an example; Jewish people who have accepted Jesus Christ as Messiah. I remember when Larry King still had his radio show how flabbergasted he was by a caller who mentioned that he was a Messianic Jew. Larry King had never heard of such a thing, and this from a fellow who had already been in the information business for decades. He had been Jewish even longer.
Thanks kindly to Jürgen Krafzik of both Rottenburg and Misunderestimated Germans for trackbacking to today's cartoon as well as for adding faithmouse to his blogroll.
Today's toon also appeared in the Sunday Funnies post on Stop The ACLU.
The completed version of the most recent Gaybear toon will be posted on Tuesday, as well as the previously promised (I promise lots of stuff) Vatican Kitty cartoon later in the week.
