Although I am not a Christian, I found one of the Dec. 22 cartoons most offensive ["Cartoon roundup," Opinion]. It shows what appear to be two Roman soldiers looking up at Jesus on the cross, and saying, "I hear he professed politically unpopular Christian beliefs in public."
I have many relatives and friends who are Christian, and some of them were offended too. The cartoon should never have been published, especially during the week leading up to Christmas. The cartoon seems sarcastic, and I believe you don't get sarcastic when you have a foot nailed to a cross.
