The Washington Post has printed this cartoon poking fun of Sarah Palin’s former Pentecostalism. Brody has the understandably indignant response from the Assemblies of God.

Update:A reader notes that it was washingtonpost.com, not the paper’s print edition, that carried the cartoon. Post ombudsmand Deborah Howell alludes to the disctinction in her explanation of the incident, which strikes God-o-Meter as slippery; she doesn’t stand by the cartoon or denounce it. After receiving 350 letters about it, shouldn’t the Post offer some time of defense–or apology?
