What About It, Robert?

Posted by on February 11 at 16:35 PM

In a column titled “Would Jesus With an Uzi be Amusing?” in today’s P-I, Robert Jamieson decries a Danish newspaper’s decision to publish images of Muhammed, calling it “a cartoon attack that strikes at the spiritual core of [Muslims’] religion.” What if someone made a similar “attack” on Christians, Jameson asks. “How many cartoons have you seen showing Jesus as a Level 3 sex offender? Or toting an Uzi?… Christ is off limits.”

Apparently, Jameson didn’t bother doing his research.

Is this like a set of Christmas cards you have or something?

I google image-searched Jesus and gun, and this is what popped up. I also looked for an image of Jesus from the cartoon South Park (where he frequently totes a rifle) but couldn't find one with high enough resolution.

That's no uzi. It's quite clearly an assault rifle, possible an M-16.

Its a 50 caliber sniper rifle.It can split a man in half from 2 miles away.not pretty and far from what jesus would have intended to do.but We dont see the west going to arab embassies or mosques and torching flags do we.

Thanks for the special work and information!
