Jesus Had a Penis

I'm not Catholic, so maybe I'm missing why this is so offensive. Public - actually just the Catholic - outcry was such that a gallery owner did not display this nude depiction of Christ, made from chocolate. Full AP story here. Was it that you can see his God given reproductive organ? Was it that it was made from chocolate rather than wood or plastic? I don't get it. So sad that this is a priority in modern religions.

Bittersweet chocolate would have been a better choice (instead of milk) of chocolate for the crucification, I believe.

I read somewhere that when the museum unveiled the statue, the artist was on-hand and made a blasphemous comment along the lines of 'Take a bite out of Christ.' As a non-practicing Catholic, i think his comment was a little out of line. he's going to hell for sure.
