Arthur Jumbles: BarkingUnicorn: Arthur Jumbles: [media.kansascity.com image 430x550]Why does anyone think this is the Virgin Mary? Is the kid with the ice cream cone Jesus?I live with my mom Nobody in the Western world is so unfamiliar with Catholic iconography.[www.theworkofgod.org image 278x368]You're right, the similarity is shocking!

BarkingUnicorn: For those who know nothing of Mexican culture:The Lady of Guadalupe is a tangible icon of purportedly miraculous origin, similar to the Shroud of Turin. It is highly revered among Mexican Catholics, and there are quite of those in New Mexico.The Santa Fe Reporter's "creative" staff and editor surely knew this. Running that cover was a dick move, and they deserve all the Internet hate that they get.

Gyrfalcon: A Terrible Human: Gyrfalcon: Yeah, you did.You might as well own it. Whether it is or is not offensive is open to debate; but you were totally hoping SOMEONE would be offended. Otherwise, why do it?Cause it's funny?Things are funny because they are offensive. (Not an original thought with me, btw)So: You do things like this because you know they are funny/offensive to someone because that's what makes them funny. If it wasn't offensive, it wouldn't also be funny--it would be boring. And nobody would laugh.
Mirandized: How would anyone take this to be the Virgin Mary? Was it referred to in the story? I certainly saw no reference on the cover -- just some chick in a bikini.
