Art or blasphemy?

You do not hear of people being found guilty of blasphemy in European countries that often any more. However, an Austrian comic book artist has done just that in Greece. Following complaints from the Greek Orthodox Church, Gerhard Haderer, whose book portrays Jesus Christ as a pot smoking party animal, was sentanced to six months in jail. Haderer faces imprisonment if he enters Greece.
