Deb sent this link: Homoerotic Jesus Images or Gay Sex Christ
Both links refer to this story: The museum of Vienna’s Roman Catholic Cathedral staged a retrospective of Alfred Hrdlicka’s work (whom the article refers to as “Austria’s cherished artist”), which includes a drawing of what Hrdlicka himself describes as “a homosexual orgy” of the Apostles during the Last Supper:
the most disputed work was ‘Leonardo’s Last Supper, restored by Pier Paolo Pasolini’ which showed cavorting Apostles sprawling over the dining table and masturbating each other.
Not surprisingly, Alfred Hrdlicka is a communist and atheist.
Museum director Bernhard Boehler says he sees no blasphemy, that the museum never intended to offend people but that art should be allowed to provoke a debate, and that
the art debate can be compared to the Danish cartoon row, where an image of the Prophet Mohammad with a bomb in his turban enraged some in the Muslim world who saw it as blasphemous.
Except that I don’t see any Catholics asking for Hrdlicka’s or Boehler’s heads on a platter, but I digress.
That the Catholic hierarchy would allow such display of pornography at a Catholic museum shows that the moral compass of Europe has disintegrated to the point where even religious authorities, who are called to lead in matters of morality, can not distinguish between right and wrong.
Political correctness and moral equivalence have supplanted a moral compass. Because of that, the EUropeans have become their own worst enemies.
