Incredible: Norway's Postal Service Runs an Ad Suggesting Jesus was the Product of Mary's Sex with the Mailman (Video)

 

 

You’ve heard of the war on Christmas, no doubt, and the very notion of the season can be viewed, apparently, as a declaration of war; see here:

But in Norway, the postal service really went above and beyond the call of duty in their anti-Christmas antics.

According to a commercial meant, as reported by LifeSite News, to “create awareness about [the Norwegian Postal Service, Posten Norge] in a warm, humorous and surprising way,” the service not only declares Jesus’s Divinity — by way of a supernatural birth — wrong, but asserts Mary cheated on Joseph. Apparently, she was ready to have sex with whoever came to the door.

Here’s more from LifeSite:

In the [ad], after the postman makes his rounds he sets out to deliver a scroll sent by Emperor Augustus to Joseph and Mary ordering them to return to their hometown to register in the census.

As the postman bends down to deposit the scroll in a pot in front of the house, Mary opens the door.  Their eyes meet, and Mary is shown to be smitten with the blond-haired mailman.

Nine months later, we see Mary and Joseph in a stable. Brown-haired Joseph looks lovingly at Mary and Jesus, who is shown to have blond hair just like the mailman’s.

The narrator does admit, “Well, maybe that’s not quite how it happened in those days.”

Then:

“But whatever the story, the postman has always been an important part of Christmas.”

Here’s the commercial
:

LifeSite has begun a petition to the Norwegian Post to pull the ad, to which it refers as “spitting on [the] beliefs” of Christians.

Some online had a similar reaction:

Those of faith shared their various thoughts:

Some questioned whether the same would be done to another religion:

Others saw the postal promotion as a call to arms for Christians to publicly live their faith:

Could such a commercial fly in the U.S? Is Norway’s ad a sign of where we’re headed?

I don’t subscribe to the outrage machine of these last few years; but personally, I consider it inexcusable to insult someone’s religion.

What are your thoughts on all this? There are many implications here. I don’t have any more to say, because I have far too much more to say.

I look forward to hearing from you in the Comments section.
