Billboard depicts Virgin Mary Holding Pregnancy Test – NZ

Whoa. This is rather wild. I love New Zealand. Was there two years ago for three weeks and it was way too short a visit. They certainly have a different take on things. Some of the people there, at least.

This church is in Auckland and this billboard is only the latest in a string of provocative, holiday-themed billboards for the church, according to local TV station 3 News. In 2009, they ran another Christmas billboard featuring Mary and Joseph in bed with the tagline, “Poor Joseph, God was a hard act to follow.”

The odd thing is that what comes to mind to me is whether Mary would weigh, as many modern women do, whether to keep the baby or not. Ah… maybe that is what this church wants us to think about. (duh… ;~p )

Sigh… considering all the extreme right Christians in the USA these days, one would have to wonder what life would be like here, or politics, if Christ had not been born. Many do just seem good at creating chaos and conducting themselves in ways very far removed from what the Christ would have done or taught.

But there would have been another prophet born shortly afterward regardless. Oh, I could go on and on here… Interesting and challenging times call for spiritual teachers to come on down and help us. Probably a few here right now. Yep. Probably.
