In an attempt to encourage more Britons to go to church this Christmas, an image of Jesus Christ in the froth of a half empty pint of beer will be used on posters.

Pastor Francis said he "hoped the poster and accompanying radio advertisements would spark a debate about religion." The church will also use a Jesus MySpace Profile (Jesus hasn’t accepted my friend request), the social networking portal for teens, to promote the frosty miracle.

Some of Jesus’s interests on the MySpace page include "Beard-care, extreme waterskiing" The message of this bizarre advertising stunt? Where is God these holidays? "For many, Christmas is just drinking and partying and God is excluded, yet many young people are interested in finding deeper meaning and exploring faith."
