BBC News - Unholy row over New Zealand Mary and Joseph billboard


BBC News - Unholy row over New Zealand Mary and Joseph billboard

Some religious people were offended by this billboard in New Zealand.  I'm not sure I really understood it.  Is it somehow suggesting that God was better in bed than Joseph, as if Mary had some ecstatic sexual experience with God?  That's funny?  If that is what is being suggested here is actually seems more stupid and than offensive.

I guess some were offended by the nature of Joseph being in bed with Mary as if they had relations, insinuating that Mary was not the perpetual virgin that some claim she was, thus besmirching her character.  I dunno.  Maybe that's offensive if you hold that view.

What about you?  Offensive?  Funny?
