Protest Defeats Blasphemy at University of Virginia

[LEFT] The University of Virginia’s student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, finally issued a reluctant apology for printing two blasphemous cartoons against the Catholic Faith on August 23-24. A Nativity-like cartoon of Our Lady holding the Infant Jesus beside Saint Joseph was most offensive.[/LEFT]
[LEFT] The figure depicting Saint Joseph said: "Mary…I don’t mean to ruin this special moment, but how did you get that bumpy rash?” suggesting a sexually transmitted disease. To which a Mary-figure says, “I swear, it was Immaculately Transmitted.”[/LEFT]
[LEFT] After nine days of protest, the offensive cartoon was removed from the newspaper’s online edition which coincided with the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, September 15.
