The Council of Atheists… and Porn

Spain’s Federación Internacional de Ateos, a.k.a. International Federation of Atheists (coolest name for an atheist organization *ever*), is holding the first “Council of Atheists” in a Toledo church this December.

I don’t think I got the invite.

Curses to them.

(Here’s a translated version of FIdA’s website, by the way.)

What will occur at this council?

… [FIdA] will present a pornographic and blasphemous exhibit entitled Sanctorum, which features images of Christ, the Virgin Mary and the saints.

At first, I thought that said Santorum… which would have been funnier. Oh well.

It’s not being held at a church solely out of spite or anything:

Organizers said the event will be held in the old church of San Vicente of Toledo, which is now administered by the Toledo Art Circle. The International Federation of Atheists decided to accept an offer by Art Circle president Fernando Barredo to use the church for the exhibit.

Barredo said the Toledo Art Circle has administered the old church of San Vicente for fifteen years and is licensed to host events and exhibits that are free of intervention by public officials.

Meanwhile, Americans flip out over Chocolate Jesus.

    You know what I think would be the most blasphomous exhibit and something Christians really don’t consider? Using a wooden crucifix (or any cross) to kill a vampire with a bloody mouth. :D Make sure the chalice is beside him too. In a way, they are crucifying a vampire and it mixes the truth of paganism in Christianity. Of course, I probably insulted other religions too by saying that. OK maybe this should go in the Halloween dress up contest one or both.

    For the porn bit, make the Christ image naked! And bloody.

    OK Yes, I’m sick puppy around Halloween. :lol:
