With All My Heart I Passionately PROTEST >>>>>

The publisher Drawn & Quarterly, an independent publisher for Macmillan Publishers, has unapologetically published an illustrated book.

According to many press reports, author and illustrator Chester Brown contends:

  • “the Virgin Mary was a prostitute,”
  • “Jesus was in favor of prostitution.”
  • “Christianity is the reason why so many people think prostitution is wrong.”
  • “I think that’s what Matthew [the Evangelist – Ed.] is saying – that the Virgin Mary was actually a prostitute….And that there was some sort of religious association there, involved with religious prostitution and goddess worship and that sort of thing.”

Slate.com, while interviewing him about the book, stated:

  • There’s a lot of nudity here—male and female—and probably a lot more explicit sex than people are used to seeing in biblical adaptations.

To which Mr. Brown retorted: "I think that people who are most likely to be offended by that are Christians."

This book is an unabashed attack on Jesus, Mary, and on the Christian faith.

With All My Heart I Passionately PROTEST >>>>>

Petition Message to:

Ms. Peggy Burns, Drawn & Quarterly
Farrar, Straus and Giroux; distributor


   I protest your newly released, illustrated book Mary Wept Over the Feet of Jesus.

   This book needs to be recalled immediately.

   With its widely reported story line and illustrations that MOCK the most pure Virgin Mary, and her Divine Son Jesus, this book is an open attack on the Catholic Church and upon all Christians in America.

   Containing impure “interpretations” of the Bible by author-illustrator Mr. Chester Brown, I find your “graphic novel” to be highly offensive.

   Recall it immediately.
