Blasphemy!

Kudos to Cardinal Egan for putting a stop to this [MSNBC]:

A planned Holy Week exhibition of a nude, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ was canceled Friday amid complaints from Catholics, including Cardinal Edward Egan.

The “My Sweet Lord” display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in Manhattan, said Matt Semler, the gallery’s creative director. Semler said he resigned after officials at the Roger Smith Hotel shut down the show.

The artwork was created from more than 200 pounds of milk chocolate and features Christ with his arms outstretched as if on an invisible cross. Unlike the typical religious portrayal of Christ, the artwork does not include a loincloth.

Poor history, poor theology, and very, very poor taste. This is but one example of New York City’s contempt for religion. Why does this country continue to allow sacrileges like this to occur? I, for one, am befuddled.

Update (by Psycheout): Here’s what the sordid display looked like:

Chocolate Jesus

Update 2: (by Psycheout): CNN link broke. Alternative MSNBC link added.

  1. Oh, Sisyphus, you beat me to it! I can’t believe this garbage. I was monitoring a moonbat radio show where they actually questioned whether Jesus had hair down there and how it would be sculpted in chocolate! What a sick demented world we live in. It’s time for a moral revival. This is just another in a long line of examples of the sickness of our society.
