Chocolate Jesus is back… it’s not the same as the original (which was eaten by mice), but this time, Jesus has chocolate-y friends:
The exhibit, at the Proposition Gallery in Manhattan, will be accompanied by a set of chocolate Catholic icons created by Cavallaro, a group that includes the Virgin Mary and saints Francis, Augustine, Michael, Jude, Anthony and Fermin.
The Catholic League isn’t protesting this time, either:
“We don’t approve of the piece at all, but it’s not something we’re going to protest,” said Kiera McCaffrey, the league’s director of communications. “This is much less an in-your-face assault on Christians, and it’s not happening during Holy Week.”
Apparently that’s only true during certain times of the year.
