Then there's magic

My goodness, that gives a new meaning to eating the Body of Christ. Hey, Father, hold that wafer, I found a sweeter one.
Just joking! I'm Catholic and wouldn't want to offend any of my fellow Catholics.

But I'm not interested in opera music or anything of that kind, so I have no intentions to go there.
I'm glad there were no protests. And I'm not an opera fan, either.

Chocolate Jesus Bites The Dust

Associated Press, March 30, 2007

NEW YORK--A planned Holy Week exhibition of a nude, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ was canceled Friday amid a choir of complaining Catholics that included Cardinal Edward Egan. The "My Sweet Lord" display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in midtown Manhattan, said Matt Semler, the gallery's creative director...Bill Donohue, head of the watchdog Catholic League, said it was "one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever."

The hotel and the gallery were overrun Thursday with angry phone calls and e-mails about the exhibit. Semler said the calls included death threats over the work of artist Cosimo Cavallaro, who was described as disappointed by the decision to cancel the display. "In this situation, the hotel couldn't continue to be supportive because of a fear for their own safety," Semler said.

It's a shame that it had to be shut down.

On Cnn, there was an interview with the artist. He said he was a Christian and the sculpture was a testament to his faith.


The Catholic League people seemed offended more by the penis(nudity) than anything else...

Oh, I know, because he didn't want to have to for the next 10 years.
Jump to conclusions much?

I read about him in the paper today. His past works have included painting a hotel room with melted mozzarella, spraying 5 tons of pepper jack cheese on a house in Wyoming, and putting 312 pounds of processed ham on a four poster bed. So apparently he has a thing for food..

It doesn't make me angry or bend me out of shape all that much, but a naked chocolate Jesus just isn't all that appealing to me. It's certainly not as offensive as piss Christ-but that's what some people do as art and consider art. It's art, it doesn't bother me all that much in the grand scheme of things. I don't consider what this guy does with food to have all that much artistic merit, but that's my personal taste.

I do love chocolate.

I don't like the processed ham, but the mozzarella and pepper jack cheese imagery is making me hungry.

Indy made a fair point.

Artists who offend Islam get brutally murdered.

Artists who offend Christianity get stiff letters from 'outraged of Tunbridge Wells'.

It has to do with some respect for other cultures or religions.

The Islamic religion asks not to portray Muhammad. So out of respect you shouldn't do it.

I've never heard that the Christian religion has generally a problem with protraying Jesus.

And the artist himself said that as a Christian it had to do with his faith.

There are fundamentalist Islamists, and also serious idiots.

You'll find the same with Christians.

I don't know about all these artists that got murdered over the last decades.

Probably you will come up with the fatwa against Salman Rushdie, but this came from Ajatollah Chomeini, so its a bad example.

The Danish cartoonists are still alive. And I'm sure if they portrayed Jesus as a suicide bomber and such the outcry amongst Christians would be similar.

I'll offend Muhammad - a long dead historical figure, and allegedly a mass murderer - any time it pleases me, thanks.

This is, after all, 'free Europe'.

Whoah, hold on there a sec.

Surely you heard of the murder of Theo van Gogh?

Sorry, but that's nonsense. The outcry amongst Christians would in no way be similar. Granted, there would be protests, but there wouldn't be terroristic threats to kill the cartoonists, kill the enemies of Christianity, etc.
