The comic above got Rob DenBlyker banned from Facebook for a time. After it had been shared and viewed over a million times, enough Christians complained about it that Facebook took it down and banned Rob for 12 hours. Both he and I are assuming that it’s Christians who complained because, of course, that’s who it was. Here’s the most interesting part of the artist’s follow-up post:
In fact, this particular comic doesn’t really make fun of Jesus or Christians. Christianity made the crucifix famous, yes, but it definitely existed historically as a thing. It is not in itself a religious device (it certainly isn’t in this comic), although the connection is obviously made by most readers. This strip is a dude innocently using a crucifix as a workout machine rather than a torture device. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but this could possibly be the most G-rated cartoon about a crucifix ever made.
