I Wish I Were In Paris

From war to peace and politics to gossip, if we have an opinion on something we'll share it here.

The following commentary about the chocolate Jesus "scandal" is courtesy of my guest blogger. Enjoy!!

Speaking of crazed, why has the Catholic Church gone mental over this statue?

Well, let's see. He's chocolate which may lead one to think that the Christ was black or African or had dark skin, which, if he existed, he did.

Next, he's naked and anatomically correct. Jesus, cover that kid's eyes!


"'This is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever,' said Bill Donohue, head of the watchdog Catholic League. 'It's not just the ugliness of the portrayal, but the timing - to choose Holy Week is astounding.'

"'The fact that they chose Holy Week shows this is calculated, and the timing is deliberate,' said Donohue, whose group represents 350,000 Catholics countrywide.

"He called for an economic boycott of the hotel, which he described as 'already morally bankrupt'."

Oh, Christ, they chose "Holy Week"! (Why does that sound like May Sweeps or something else similar to me?) Don't they understand?

This Donohue guy has fucking flipped his wig. You can't really tell from the picture but so the statue is ugly. And? There's hundreds of thousands of pieces of ugly art the world over.

So Donohue isn't pissed because of that.

Could it be the chocolate statue has a bigger one than Donohue has and he's feeling inadequate?

But, personally, I think it's because they decided to unveil it at the time of the fabled crucifixion.

And Donohue says as much, about eight million times, while clutching at himself (it's that inadequacy thing again).

Why you wouldn't expect a crucified Jesus to be on display around Easter is beyond me but perhaps Mr. Donohue works on a different level than most mere mortals. Frankly, it's a level I never want to visit.
