A controversial New Zealand church has rolled out a publicity stunt in time for Christmas – with a billboard showing the Virgin Mary holding a positive pregnancy test. Auckland’s St Matthews in the City Church launched its festive advertising campaign to “avoid the sentimental and trite” and “spark thought and conversation”.
An American gun club has invited children and their families to pose for pictures with Santa Claus – and a high-powered firearm!
