Church Christmas Billboard Win

Jesus Christ!

Since it's debut New Zealand this church billboard has caused quite the controversy!

The picture of the virgin Mary — understandably — shocked by a positive pregnancy test is upsetting religious zealots all over the world.

Much like us Vicar Glynn Cardy doesn't understand why. He says the Christmas story,

"is about a real pregnancy, a real mother and a real child … Mary was young, unmarried and poor. She was certainly not the first woman in this situation, or the last."

Lyndsay Freer, a Catholic Diocese official in New Zealand, counters:

"St. Matthew's ignores the gospel account of matters surrounding the pregnancy and birth of Jesus, in which Mary is not a shocked solo mother but a young woman who has given her assent and trust to God."

Well, we think it's awesome.

It makes Mary's story relatable — NOT an easy task!!
