Danish paper rejected Jesus cartoons

It seems that there are limits to how far certain Danish newspapers will go to exercise their free speech muscle and apparently it is as far is they want provided that it is unlikely to offend anyone who might actually buy their paper. The money quote:

Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that first published the cartoons of the prophet Muhammad that have caused a storm of protest throughout the Islamic world, refused to run drawings lampooning Jesus Christ, it has emerged today.
The Danish daily turned down the cartoons of Christ three years ago, on the grounds that they could be offensive to readers and were not funny.
