Rome - A homeless catholic has protested against a drawing of Jesus in a Danish newspaper depicting the Jewish king as a poor carpenter.
The homeless man, who forgot his name ten years ago, first noticed the image three days after the newspaper editition of The Roman Times was released. He was preparing his bedding of newspapers and cardboard boxes when he happened upon the offensive picture.
He contacted the paper immediately, with a mobile phone he had borrowed from a generous passer-by. He said the picture was disgusting and offensive to Christians, Catholics and Jews alike. He has called for the Pope to issue a Matador (Catholic version of a Fatawa) against the artist of the picture and is organising an official protest next weekend outside the Vatican.
The man has also urged people to boycott all products made of wood in protest to the carpenter inference.
Since the incident a Danish pastry was found mutilated outside a cafe in Florence. It is thought protestors are responsible and religious leaders have expressed their concern that more violence may be to come.

Viewers are assured that the homeless man's park bench is made of reinforced steel, not wood or wooden by-products.
