Jesus likes to relax with his Camel Lights and a PBR -- in India

According to the BBC:

The government in the Indian state of Meghalaya has confiscated textbooks showing pictures of Jesus Christ holding a cigarette and a can of beer.

The book has been used for primary classes and has caused a furore in the north-eastern state, where more than 70% of the population are Christians.

State Education Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh said legal action against the publishers was being contemplated.

The company, based in Delhi, has so far not responded to the complaints.

Publishing is a risky business, folks. You never know who will be offended and who will simply laugh it off. I'm sure my upcoming calendar "Hot Guards of Auschwitz" will raise a few eyebrows, but I'm giving all the proceeds to charity. The Westboro Baptist Church can really use the cash.
