I received the below message in an e-mail. When I visited the Washington Post link, I found the cartoon to be offensive. Before you jump to conclusions, let me preface this by saying I don't think this has anything to do with the political season but everything to do with my freedom of religion being mocked. Even though I do not share the same beliefs as Sarah Palin, I don't think her choice of religion should be attacked. If they will attack her choice of spirituality, mine will be next. I did write an e-mail to the Washington Post and expressed my displeasure in allowing this offensive cartoon to run. If you find this cartoon to "rub your fur the wrong way," feel free to copy and paste this to your blog and e-mail Washington Post stating your complaint.
The Washington Post ran this cartoon by artist Pat Oliphant dated, 9-09-08. It apparently ran in today's paper, 9-10-08.
I encourage you, if you find this to be as appalling as I do, to let the Post know how you feel about it. Regardless of your political or religious leanings, the gall of putting a curse word in the mouth of God is borderline blasphemous, in my opinion.
