Controversial chocolate Jesus...again.

And a question:
What do you think Jesus' opinion of this artwork is???
(If you are not Christian, please be tactful in your answer as I am not trying to incite controversy.)

You can make a statue of me out of chocolate if you like, and I wouldn't care in the least. I'd be pretty surprised if Jesus felt any differently.



Some might see it as sacrilegious though. Some also might see it as a graven image. I guess it just depends on who you talk too. The Catholic Church was not pleased about the first statue which hung on the wall (also naked).

I don't think that was the official Catholic Church. I think it was Bill Donohue of the "Catholic League."

He's not an official spokesman. He kind of appointed himself Guardian of the Faith, and makes a very nice living for himself by being outraged on television.

I think Jesus would, after living, preaching, being tortured, and killed, and the ascending, would not find any reason to bat a divine eye at this.

He may have a bit more concern with the intention. If it is intended simply to hurt Christians, and cause anger and strife just for the sake of it, I think He would frown on that just as much as he would when others do so via different means.
