Ads paid for by an Islamic group called MyPeace, want to raise awareness that Islam believes in Jesus Christ.
Mr Mohamed said he hoped the billboards would encourage Christians and Muslims to find common ground. They were not intended to downgrade the significance of Jesus. ''We embrace him and say that he was one of the mightiest prophets of God.''
MyPeace plans to extend the campaign, funded by private donations, to television.
Sydney Anglican Bishop, Robert Forsyth said
the billboard was not offensive... They've got a perfect right to say it, and I would defend their right to say it [but] … you couldn't run a Christian billboard in Saudi Arabia.'
The bishop said he would pay for billboards to counter those of MyPeace if he could afford it, and maybe the atheists should run their billboards as well.
I thought the atheists had already been prevented from advertising against religious bigotry... anyway knowing the likes of Phillip Jensen's responses, a religious war will rage in Sydney and everyone will eventually end up atheists!
