I was wondering why some Catholics are so upset about an art figure of Jesus that was made out of chocolate? It's not meant to be eaten. It was supposed to be shown in a building for people to see, but the people at the building backed out of the plan, because of the angry Catholics. Would they rather have had the figure be made of of something different, like a vanilla substance? Or plastic? Or sand? Aluminum?

Is it a sin to eat chocolate or something?


Maybe Jesus looked black and they couldnt deal with that image?

Maybe they should've put some red-coloured caramel oozing from the stigmata and sacred heart. Catholics love fire and brimstone. When I was in Ireland, in a place called Knock (big name in the catholic world) there are a million and one souvenir shops with all kinds of evangelical delights. One thing in particular has lingered in my mind over the years; You know those holograph type things that have 2 different pictures and make a rad noise when you scratch on them horizontally? Well this one was close-up of Jesus' face on the cross, crown of thorns and all that stuff. First off, all I saw was his eyes closed, which didn't strike me as all that odd. My second glance saw that his eyes were now open wide with a very staring gaze about it. How fucking eerie is that?
My people sometimes scare me.

Like I said, the chocolate wasn't meant to be eaten at all. It was an art exhibit.
