Letter: Jesus no joke

Editor, the Gauntlet,

I am just wondering how it is possible to publish something that is so incredibly offensive in a campus newspaper. Obviously, the person writing [the joke],”Why doesn’t Jesus play hockey? Because he always gets nailed to the boards!” Has no moral or ethical compassion whatsoever.

How do you justify publishing something that offends more than three world religions?

The Crucifixion of Jesus is not something to be made light of. Truly, it is a cornerstone in the Christian faith and is a new beginning as well as the advent of the redemption of all mankind. Anyways, I’m sure this breaks some form of censorship law, considering that it states in your mandate that, “submissions judged to be sexist, racist, homophobic or attacks of a personal nature will not be printed.”

My final question, what kind of judge deems such a comment NOT an attack on personal nature and/or faith?
