Post-immaculate conception...

A handout picture released by the St Matthew-in-the-City Anglican church in Auckland shows an apparently naked Virgin Mary and Joseph in bed together. The billboard has sparked the ire of conservative Christians in New Zealand.

Good morning, Netizens...


Talk about creating a controversy. A handout picture released by the St Matthew-in-the-City Anglican church in Auckland shows an apparently naked Virgin Mary and Joseph in bed together. The billboard has sparked the ire of conservative Christians in New Zealand if not conservatives elsewhere around the world. Picture: (AFP/HO/St Matthew-In-The-City)


Of course, this does open the doorway to the the inevitable discussion of the immaculate conception of the Baby Jesus which, according to some, is yet another controversy of itself.


However the picture is perhaps controversial enough.
