More on JP’s inconsistency

This article in The Guardian provides more background on the breaking of Jyllands-Posten’s refusal a few years ago to run potentially offensive cartoons about Jesus Christ.  [Thanks for the heads-up, Carsten.]

This piece left out the juicier (and in some respects more damning) revelations the newspaper’s editor strenuously objecting to a , shall we say, sexually charged portrayal of Jesus Christ that I mentioned in my earlier post.  Seems a glaring omission to me. 

Could it be that they’re skittish about discussing Jesus Christ’s private parts?  What’s wrong with these prudes? What are they, Muslims?
