Another little hitch in the christianists’ “We heart Israel” equation

A satiric sketch on Channel 10 television prompted dozens of Christians in the Galilee to demonstrate against the channel this weekend, while the heads of local Christian churches published a denunciation of their own.

In their denunciation, the clergymen accused the skit of fomenting interreligious hatred.  The skit, which aired on Lior Shlein’s nightly program, was called “Like a Virgin,” after the Madonna song.

It denied that Jesus had walked on water, as stated in the New Testament, and claimed that not only was Mary not a virgin when she gave birth to him, as Christian tradition holds, but that she was promiscuous and had sex with many men besides her husband.  Haaretz
