As a catholic, I am trying to understand the humor in Charlie Hebdo’s caricature. I looked for anything that Charlie created depicting Jesus and I found these.
I don’t remember that Catholics went on an uproar and started shooting the cartoonist in France when it was published. This is not WWJD (what would Jesus do). Jesus promotes love and not killing.
Speaking of love, the Catholic Filipinos has so much love to give when Pope Francis visited the Philippines. According to the news, at least 6 million Filipinos came to celebrate the visit of Pope Francis.
Just take a look at these photos I found at Telegraph. This is good example of love and unity.
