File this under "what the hell were they thinking". When I first heard this story I thought it was an April fools day joke. It opens on April 1st and closes on Easter. It seemed like a tasteless joke, but now I'm not so sure - the event has been canceled. Apparently, Catholics objected to a nude life sized Jesus hanging loose from an invisible cross. The display would have placed Jesus's penis at about mouth level for those viewing the exhibit. Who would be offended by that?
Oh wait, it gets better. apparently you can eat Jesus on Easter. I wonder what part of Jesus would be "eaten" first.
Now that the show is canceled - I hear nutball artist Cosimo Cavallaro will be selling his creation on eBay.
