Varnes letter: Cartoon offensive

As a Christian, I was greatly offended by the “In the Bleachers” cartoon in the Dec. 26 Statesman. The caption “Heckler on the Mount” was obviously a reference to the Sermon on the Mount, the figures depicted were dressed in Middle Eastern attire circa A.D. 30, and the person being heckled, in the context, had to be Jesus. How sad for a cartoonist to make fun of my Savior, and how sad for anyone who thought the cartoon was funny.
