Church of Iceland Advertisement Features Bearded Jesus With Women’s Breasts
DAILYMAIL — The Church of Iceland’s new ‘woke’ ad welcoming people to Sunday School has sparked outrage after it featured a bearded Jesus Christ with breasts, makeup and a dress.
The advert, which apparently shows Jesus shaking his ‘breasts’ while dancing under a rainbow, appeared on the National Church’s Facebook page on September 11.
As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work.
