I saw an image some time ago on Reddit. I remember thinking that it looked like Jesus had an erection. I thought it was funny until I realized that the image was a real picture taken in the Church of Warr Acres. I thought it unlikely that an artist can screw something like this up and still have it displayed in a church. I’m sure I was not the first person to react this way. Now I’ve read the a man is being sued for posting the picture on his blog under German obscenity laws.
I received mail today by the State Office of Criminal Investigation regarding an illustration of Jesus Chris on twitpic I linked to several weeks ago. I am accused of profanity.
Interestingly, the picture was taken in the Church of Warr Acres and is not photoshopped. Just recently it ignited a debate about the phallic depiction of the abdominal muscles.
Interesting is right, and dumb too. It’s just bad art, very bad art.
