French Jesuits have published a collection of Charlie Hebdo anti-Catholic cartoons on their own website.
We have decided to put online [on our site] a few cartoons of Charlie Hebdo that relate to Catholicism. It is a sign of strength to be able to laugh at some traits of the institution to which we belong, because it is a way of saying that what we value is beyond always transient and imperfect forms. Humour regarding faith is a good antidote to fanaticism and a spirit of seriousness which tends to take everything literally.
We express our solidarity with our murdered brothers , the other victims, their families and friends.
The link above is a translation of the actual site where the cartoons are available.
