Kiwi Church erects shocking pregnancy test Mary billboard.


(click images)
And the "virgin" looks none too pleased about the positive result!
St. Matthew in the City Angelican church of Auckland—the coolest goddamn church in the world—just erected this copy-less billboard for the holiday season. Look at all that steam over Iowa, via the ears of pious Republican Presidential candidates. I LOVE it. Previously, St. Matthew ruffled homophobic feathers with this Noah's Gay Ark poster. Watch a video of their vicar Glynn Cardy discussing the billboard here.

My favourite religious advertiser of all time!

Here's a better shot of the creative, and a bunch of links to their previous campaigns:

2 Corinthians 9:15

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27
To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34
Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

36
And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Luke 1:26-38 KJV

That was then and now for something completely different, an updated version of the magical baby's birth:
