New Ad Shows Ficticious Ultrasound Image Of Jesus

Eight words and a photo are generating conversation all across the U-K. A group of 700 churches are behind a billboard and ad campaign that features Jesus as an unborn child in an ultrasound image with a halo over his head. The words beneath read: He's on his way. Christmas starts with Christ." Check out the image here. Some are upset, though, that the ads send a pro-life message. The churches say it's merely meant to be a celebration of Christ's birth. Last year's ad, which featured a nativity held in a bus stop shelter, reached some 20 million people.
