"Progressives" at work in new Zealand. Mary remained a virgin according to Catholic doctrine.
"An inner-city Auckland church, trying to promote debate over Christianity, has given up on a controversial billboard which made international headlines.
The billboard, featuring a dejected Joseph and a quizzical Mary in bed, with the message, "Poor Joseph. God was a hard act to follow", has been attacked four times since it was erected outside the Anglican church on Thursday. After the latest attack, by an elderly woman with a knife, the church said the billboard would not be replaced.
The vicar of St Matthew-in-the-City, Glynn Cardy, said: "[The billboard was] attacked by a knife-wielding Christian fanatic who was then apprehended by a group of homeless people who care about our church. Later in the evening, another group of fanatics ripped it down.
The church had no regrets about fuelling discussion about God: "We are glad that discussion about Santa, food, and present-buying was momentarily usurped by a discussion about Jesus."
A bit of direct action there. Must be learning from the Muslims
