I'm Not Sure What It Costs, But You Can Get Your Own Naked, Chocolate Jesus. Happy Easter!

By: The Dude on the Right
Easter is coming, and all of us know that for Catholics, well, Easter is all about the Easter Bunny, Easter Eggs, breaking out your new spring outfit, and going to church one of those two times a year.  In fact, lately, like Christmas has become about Santa Claus and presents, Easter has now become about chocolate.  Forget the Christian teachings of Jesus getting crucified and rising from the dead to save our sins, most of us just want the chocolate, or hope that that Easter Egg we found might hold a few bucks rather than candy.  And yet, when an artist, sculpturer, dude, decides to sculpt a life-size Jesus out of chocolate, and wants to display it in a New York gallery, suddenly a bunch of Catholics get their panties in a bunch and squash the display.  Sure, the Jesus is displayed without a loin-cloth, so yea, that means his wiener is showing, but maybe people should worry more about their religion rather than a naked Jesus made of chocolate.

And for me, this seems to be what is so screwed up about the world today:  Religion.  The problem is also that this seems to be what has been so screwed up about the world for, well, forever.  Religions preach tolerance.  Religions preach forgiveness.  Religions preach "Love one another" no matter what.  Yet when someone's thoughts, beliefs, ideals, religion, is different from yours, or you sculpt a six-foot Jesus out of Chocolate, suddenly all of that is thrown out the window, other people are heathens, and they will rot in hell because they aren't one with the Easter Bunny.

The dumbest part of this story - I would have probably not found out about this chocolate Jesus if a group of Catholics didn't complain.  It would have been another piece of art some fool would have spent huge amounts of money on to put in his living room (which now would have to be permanently chilled), so that he could say "Look, I've got Jesus, made out of chocolate.  Please don't eat his penis."

Welcome to the season of Easter.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

And, oh yea, the artist-dude who did the sculpture is Casimo Cavallero, and that's where I got the picture of the naked, chocolate Jesus from.
