Bill Donohue is back in the news, this time he’s bitching about Jesus. Well, more specifically about one sweeeeeet Jesus:
NEW YORK – The Easter season unveiling of an anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ, dubbed “My Sweet Lord” by its creator, has infuriated Catholics preparing to observe some of their holiest days of the year.
The 6-foot sculpture by Cosimo Cavallaro was to debut Monday evening, four days before Christians mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday. The final day of the exhibit at the Lab Gallery inside Manhattan’s Roger Smith Hotel was planned for Easter Sunday.
“This is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever,” said Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, a watchdog group. “It’s not just the ugliness of the portrayal, but the timing – to choose Holy Week is astounding.”
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.
OH NOES==! No loincloth!== You mean Jesus had a penis?! A giant chocolate Jesus with a penis for all to see. I’m surprised Donahue didn’t keel right over.
