Absurd, but not offensive, unless it was done with the intention to irk.

It's amusing, would people get pissed off if the stature was made out of marble or granite or gold? Just because it's chocolate, which is absurd to get pissed about.


EDIT: if you're angry about a naked jesus, then who cares, he WAS a man afterall.

It's art, designed to generate a response, which is exactly what it is doing.

I think it's very funny. I don't see it as being offensive nor do I really understand how it can be construed as such, but I do see a kind of funny tension between the fact that it's a sacred image but it's being presented in a medium usually reserved for childrens cartoon heroes or santa claus. That to me can be interpreted alot of different ways, and I think it's actually extremely clever.

No doubt some people are going to draw comparisons with this and piss christ but I don't see that the two are related at all. As I said, I see this as being pretty clever while piss christ was just cheap whoring of an offensive idea in the hopes to get attention.

I think that's what is pissing people off.

Jesus had a penis, get over it. I think it's unnecessary to put it there, but whatever.

To me, it's a stab at the commercialization of Easter.

Christians really need to stop *****ing about their being "persecuted."

"OMG, it's a statue of Jesis with a penis, someone is out to destroy our belief system!"

But when Muslims become outraged, people remove cartoons and make public apologies...

I don't think that was the reaction people had. I think the catholics were more offended at the fact that he was created nude at a time when they are celebrating their Lent season (Holy days?). I think MVP got it right.

I'm actually laughing out loud... SSJ was owned.

Yeah, when Muslims get upset, we need to learn "Religious tolerance".

With all the awful things in the Catholic church, there is other things they should be concerned with.

I wouldn't pay to see or, or recommend any Christian to see it, but people have a freedom to expression.

IDK. Would it appear more offensive to the clergy or the parishoner(sp?)? Either way, I think it is in poor taste (no pun intended), but I agree in the freedom of expression. Don't like it? Don't see it.

Maybe when the festivities are over, they'll break it up and eat it. Kinda like a revised Communion. I think it's funny, but Buddy Christ > Choco Christ.
