In God's Name


Gerhard Haderer has been given a six-month sentence for blasphemy by a Greek court. The move comes after his comic book The Life of Jesus was banned by the country. The comic depicts Jesus as a hippie who surfs and is friends with Jimi Hendrix. It has sold some 100,000 copies in the rest of Europe. Haderer faces imprisonment if he enters Greece. His Greek publisher and booksellers were acquitted of blasphemy charges.
