A six-foot-tall chocolate sculpture of Jesus on exhibit at the Roger Smith Hotel Lab Gallery has incited outrage from NYC's Catholic community. Bill Donohue, head of the watchdog Catholic League, says that "this is one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever". Really? I'm not quite sure I get what is so offensive about it. Is it because it's made of chocolate? Why is that offensive? Chocolate is delicious! Is it because he's naked instead of wearing his traditional loincloth? Apparently the sculpture is pretty well-endowed, so I don't know why people would be so upset about that. Is it because chocolate is brown? Hmmmmm...
