Immodest Jesus statue riles Christians
(visit the link for the full news article)
GATESHEAD, England, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A statue of Jesus with an erect penis on display in England is drawing fire from outraged Christian critics.
"It's the Lord Jesus Christ being humiliated, ridiculed and vilified," declared Stephen Green, national director of Christian Voice.
Green told the Sun he not only demanded the gallery take the statue down but also destroy it for good measure.

Is the problem here than Jesus has an erection, and the statue of David doesn't?

Give me a BREAK! All you fundamentalists do is censor! Its art, thats all! There is art that depicts rape and murder and you say nothing to it. I think its more blasphemous that you people worship statues of his "normal" look. Doesn't it say you shouldn't worship idols?
And Jesus was a person, are you saying he never woke up with a morning wood? Jesus probably had thousands of boners in his life, this just more properly records moments of the man's life.
Sorry about that last part, couldn't help myself.

I couldn't care less if someone made a statue of me with a boner, or anyone else with a boner. I mean come on guys... It's just a statue.

We need much more art like this to keep the idiot christians busy whining and complaining in forums like this one and out of our laws and away from our children.

I think I understand why all you people are defending this statue.
You hate Christians and you want to piss Christians off.
It's not even that you think the statue is real art, you're just $#&%ing prejudice towards Christians
