Woke joke leaves nobody laughing


THE Daily Mail reports that theChurch of Iceland’s new ‘woke’ advert encouraging children to attend Sunday school, which depicts a cartoon Jesus with breasts and wearing make-up and a dress, has ‘sparked outrage’. In defence, the church stated: ‘The goal was to emphasise diversity, not to hurt people or shock them.’ 

Can this be the same Iceland that has boasted about ‘eradicating’ Down’s syndrome by screening out such individuals before birth? So much for ‘wokeness’ when they seem to have been asleep at the diversity lecture. Indeed, this ad could almost be seen as a joke against wokeness, but sadly, although the ‘seek-and-destroy’ policy against disability hurts many, it no longer shocks us.
