It’s Easter Time, the holiest time of the year for Christians.
You know what that means.
Some cowardly bigot hiding behind the First Amendment takes it too far.
In this case, it’s a cartoonist at the University of Virginia’s student newspaper, the Cavalier Daily, a publication with a reputation of ruffling feathers, then apologizing, then getting into the same trouble over and over again.
The extremely offensive cartoon, according to The Bulletin, “vulgarizes the conception of Jesus by depicting an imaginary sex scene with the Virgin Mary and a man identified as God.”
The cartoon ran on March 14, just prior to the start of Holy Week, and has since been removed.
Surely, the cartoonist knew his work would anger many people. He simply didn’t care.
It’s a disgusting display that an institution of higher learning should be ashamed of.
