Chocolate Christ: Is it art or a mockery?
Sculptor Cosimo Cavallaro, 45, well known for his large-scale installations, has created a 6ft representation of Jesus Christ out of chocolate. It failed to get resurrected because of pressure from religious groups - including Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist with a combined reach of millions.
This only demonstrates the insensitivity and the pervasive culture of mocking that exists in the United States.
Anything goes, if money can be made. That seems to be the mantra driven by greed for making money and by a lack of respect for religion.
