Cartoon crisis in the Netherlands?


Last week the Dutch retailer Dixons distributed its new special Christmas magazine.
But some Christian clubs complained at the Dutch Advertisement Code and Ethics commission.
For them several cartoons about the birth of Jesus are blasphemy.
On one of the cartoons you see the Three Wise men of the East looking for Jesus with a TomTom (GPS system). Another one shows Jesus laying down and listening with his iPod to 'Dreaming of a White Christmas'.
I think they have a slight chance to stop the distribution of these magazines.
It's now waiting on the first threats...))

Finding Jesus with a Tom Tom ... that's funny.

BTW, nice Dutch gadget that TomTom. I got one for my birthday. I love it. It completely takes the stress out of driving.

Do they have TomToms for driving in Istanbul ? Or maybe the technology is not so advanced that it can cope with the streets & traffic of Istanbul :-)

You can actually find Jesus with a compass. That's right: a compass. Do you know about this compass ?The four points of this compass are Matthew , Mark, Luke and John.

Happy Christmas.
