Anti-Catholic Cartoon Targets the Pope
Le Monde Magazine in France published a cartoon showing the “Pope” sodomizing a little boy.
The vile cartoon appeared in the Holy Week issue of the Le Monde Magazine. The author, Jean Plantu, is known for his blasphemous insults against the Church and the Pope. However, this might be the first time an insult against the Pope has reached this extreme.
The American TFP chose not to reprint a copy of the cartoon because it is simply beyond comprehension.
Last year, Le Monde published a Plantu cartoon showing Our Lord Jesus Christ handing out condoms from a boat to the excited masses. The cartoon read: “The multiplication of the condoms followed the multiplication of the loaves.” That cartoon hit the Pope too. He was shown as a decrepit old man who says: “Anything goes!”
So, the most recent cartoon against the Pope in Le Monde Magazine is not an isolated case. It is part of a series. That is why it is important for us to raise a powerful yet peaceful protest against Le Monde.
The American TFP’s protest message to Le Monde reads as follows:
To Le Monde Magazine:
I am deeply pained, more than words can express, to know that your magazine published a sacrilegious cartoon showing the Pope sodomizing a little boy. I do not accept this indecent insult to the Pope. This is beyond the pale!
As the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ on earth, the person of the Pope is sacred. And he teaches the holy and eternal truths taught by Holy Mother Church, which is absolutely against all sin, especially unnatural vice.
I demand that you apologize for the Jean Plantu cartoon and pledge never to publish such terribly insulting material again.
