Chocolate Jesus is evil

In honour of Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League:

To fill you in, Bill called a sculpture called 'My Sweet Lord' by Cosimo Cavallaro [frontal shot here] "One of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever". This from a man whose professed religion was responsible for the Congregation of the Doctrine of The Faith. How about we sit down and have a chat about assaults on sensibilities, Bill?

It also occurs to me - is this a body of christ which may actually be appetising? This one was possibly in apple juice, possibly not, but is this the first truly edible full-size saviour?

There's been a fair amount of blog reaction [technorati search], mostly reacting positively to the sculpture and negatively to our friends in la-la land. Fucking cannibals!

One more. Can't resist

... and theists lose.

That's right - you believers can just pack up your revival tents and fuck off

By a margin of 1205 votes to 778, a clear mandate, the case "We'd be better off without religion" put forward by A.C.Grayling, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins was carried. Opposing were Rabbi Julia Neuberger, Professor Roger Scruton and Nigel Spivey.
