Outrage Over a ‘Deadpool’ Poster That Mimics an Iconic LDS Painting of Jesus Christ
SALT LAKE CITY - An online petition is demanding the removal of a Deadpool poster, calling it a form of religious discrimination, according to KSTU. A self-proclaimed anti-hero like Deadpool has no business being compared to Jesus Christ, according to the petition. “A movie character which is all about crude humor and satire and sarcasm. They would see it being as precisely the opposite of the kind of characters and virtues that Jesus embodies,” said Patrick Mason, chair of Mormon studies at Claremont Graduate University.
