Yessir, controversial art is still alive -- even the old-school kind. Seems a Canadian artist named Cosimo Cavallero is displaying an all-chocolate Jesus (with private parts) in a NY gallery. The Catholic League got upset; here's a video or here's a transcript of what happened when the artist (who is, incidentally, a Christian himself) and the head of the CL got together on TV. The video is better so you can get some of the crosstalk.
OK, uncompassionate non-ultra-perfect-Progressive-Education-non-Buddhist-non-Goddardy speech follows in the next paragraph. Avert your eyes if you're allergic to spitfire realist bloggers with opinions, cuz I am still one of those.
Catholic League dude (whose fame I will not assist by writing out his name) is the classic right-wing American bully piece of shit, double chin spilling out over his uptight collar, ugly tan suit, bullying and blustering in a wide stupid accent, like someone out of central casting. Amazing. An embarrassment to pretty much everybody. He says stuff about "loser artists" and, because he's speaking to an artist, says "I've got a job and you don't."
