Whole milk or plain?

Because I don't like plain chocolate.

the really offensive thing would be if the naked Jesus had a penis.

Tom Waits, George Harrison and Michelangelo Buonarroti references all in one...

I assume there isn't any actual tradition of such a candy however?

I wonder why the "artist" didn't favor us with a rendering of a chocolate Mohammed?

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

Yeah, the possibility that Easter is a Christian holiday is probably too far fetched.

Vincent, you should have read the article.

"We're obviously surprised by the overwhelming response and offense people have taken," said Semler, adding that the Holy Week timing was a coincidence.
Not that I believe that for a second.

By the way, did you get a chance to see Mozart's Idomeneo last Fall at the opera house before Muslim protests closed it down?

I've read another article, and there was no mention about the "coincidence"

There were no Muslim protests at all.
The only thing was that the Secretary of the Interior called the manager of the opera house saying that he was afraid the Idemeneo could cause an attack by Muslims and he suggested the showing be cancelled. The manager did so, but in fact there were no threats at all.
A few months later the Idemeneo showing came back into the prgramme, and there was no uproar at all. Just nothing.

And there have never been any protests.

But I'm not interested in opera music or anything of that kind, so I have no intentions to go there.

The artwork was created from more than 200 pounds of milk chocolate, and it features Christ with his arms outstretched. The Cavallaro creation does not include a loincloth.
I think it is fine if people want to complain, be offended and get this thing taken down.

It won't be any real loss for 'freedom of expression".

Bottom line for me?
I guess they have the right to create and display this.

And public pressure should be allowed to influence it being taken down.

Damn glad to hear that sanity prevailed. And I agree with you about opera, except when Bono sings it of coarse.
