    Sweet Jesus!

    Sweet Jesus angers Christians

    March 31, 2007 Edition 1

    A life-size sculpture of a naked Jesus made out of chocolate has angered a Roman Catholic organisation and forced a Manhattan art gallery to reconsider exhibiting it during Easter week.

    The sculpture "My Sweet Lord" by Cosimo Cavallaro was to be exhibited for two hours each day next week in a street-level window of the Roger Smith Lab Gallery in Manhattan. It was set to open on Monday, days before Good Friday when Christians mark the crucifixion of Jesus.

    The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights called for a boycott of the accompanying Roger Smith Hotel, writing to 500 religious and secular organisations.

    "This is an assault on Christians during Holy Week," said Kiera McCaffrey, director of communications for the league.

    Gallery director Matthew Semler said: "It's intended as a meditation on the Holy Week." - Reuters



    Remember the Christian newspapers that printed the Muslim cartoons and wondered what all the fuss was about. Well, here is a Catholic artist that sculpted a chocolate Jesus to get closer to his savior and look at what the Catholics say about it. Christian hypocrites showing their true colors now that the shoe is on the other foot. Seems like they don't like a "naked" Jesus...... but I thought god created man "in his own image". So now I guess we should be disgusted with the image of god?


    :confused:

    The symbolism was just too hard not to miss... Easter, chocolate...
    I'm surprised the artist's Jesus didn't have a fluffy tail and long ears!

    Just how weak is their faith that they get upset with a chocolate Jesus at Easter... it's insane... Don't they know this could be the next Easter marketing trend??

    From what the photo showed there is absolutely nothing offensive about the image... unless they're offended that Jesus had a 'willy' and it was visible in the sculpture... BUT... wouldn't the Romans have crucified him that way?

    I thought the replica was quite proportionately accurate to man. Therefor, the claim that dark men are better endowed must be a myth.

    You know if he didn't have his junk exposed, "The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights" would have absolutely no issues with this. They probably consider it to be some type of pornography. :rolleyes:
