Religious Riot Over Blasphemous Cartoon
Episcopalians left their quiet cul-de-sacs today and swarmed into the streets to protest a Family Circus cartoon that depicted God and Jesus as large-headed freaks. Pausing only to sip an Evian, Babs Dickerson said, "Really, the cartoon has always been offensive to anyone with an IQ above two digits, but to draw the Creator and our Savior beaming vacuously like the other brain-damaged Bil Keane characters is just too much. And on Sunday, too." The crowd marched to the local Banana Republic, overturned a Washington Times vending machine, and returned home in time for cocktails. There were no reported injuries.
