Malaysia closes paper that showed Jesus smoking and drinking


news.bbc.co.uk

Malaysia has shut down a newspaper for a month after it published a picture of Jesus holding a cigarette and what appears to be a can of beer.

Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi himself stepped in to admonish the editors of Makkal Osai, a Tamil-language paper.

It apparently shows Jesus smoking and drinking and appeared with the paper's daily spiritual message on its front page with the caption "if someone repents for his mistakes, then heaven awaits him".

Well it seems a bit odd, considering no one actually knows what Jesus looks like!

But anyway... I think the main reason it was closed was because the government wants to keep all the religions of their country on the same level - so they're just making an example of this paper really - which isn't bad - in my book.


Sensing perhaps that it has to be even-handed between all of Malaysia's many faiths, the government moved quickly to punish Makkal Osai, the BBC's Jonathan Kent reports from Kuala Lumpur.
