Dove è Bill Donohue?

martin kippenberger

The pope's red satin panties are all in a twist over a three foot wooden statue of a crucified frog. The wooden sculpture, "Zuerst die Fuesse" (First the Feet) was created by artist Martin Kippenberger as a self-portrait. It hangs in the Museion in the city of Bolzano, Italy.

The pope wrote to Franz Pahl, the president of the region,
[The sculpture] has offended the religious feelings of many people who consider the cross a symbol of God's love and of our redemption.
Pahl was so upset by the sculpture that he went on a hunger strike last summer.

And as someone who believes in Muppetantity, I too am offended. To think, someone took my superstition and mocked it! What next, someone making a movie mocking Santa or people saying bad things about fairies? When will this senseless insulting of our childish beliefs end??!?!?!?

Hell, Jesus wasn't the only person to be crucified. Haven't they seen Spartacus? (Kirk Douglas not Goran Visnjic)

Of course, but they had the good sense to not string up Kermit.

Poor Froggie...
Nailing a guy to a cross until he dies of starvation or exposure is "a symbol of God's love and of our redemption" REALLY?!?!?!?!?!?!
Nice.
