Do you see what I see? When a Catholic church in Oklahoma commissioned an artist to create a unique display for them, they probably didn't realize just how unique it would be. The artist's efforts to give the Savior a distended stomach has turned into an epic FAIL as members of the congregation are quitting the Church in embarrassed shock.

See the hung crucifix after the jump.

Although I'm not a christian, having seen that I could love jesus!

"Truly, He is Risen" (compare with measuring tape, Matthew 27:64, Matthew 28:6-7, Mark 16:6, Luke 24:6, Luke 24:34).

When I saw the Article title "Hung Jesus: uproar over unfortunate art" I thought of a noose around Jesus neck (as if one form of execution could be better or worse than another?) But hey, according to "them" (the church, theology, etc) Jesus is supposed to be the "son of God" so why wouldn't or shouldn't Jesus be well hung? I mean "God" is the all mighty and supposed creator of man and man (especially Jesus his "son")is made in God's image, right? And the way the world is being taking care of these days by God, it's obvious that God is the Biggest prick ever, so Jesus can't be far behind, and is just a reflection of God, right? I like it.

I call this an Epic Win!! OMG, how could the artist have not seen a huge penis and testicles there?!

I forget the name of it, but there's a famous painting of Christ with the stretched abs that this work is based on. Apparently it's a popular art symbol, but this one is a little, shall we say, erotic about the style. I'll look for a link to the artwork and drop it in if I find it.

He has tentacles hanging from his balls.

Good thing they didn't ask for a painting of the
circumcision hung over the altar. You know, the Feast of the Circumcision, formerly on January 1.

One of the relics at Chartres was the prepuce de petit Jesus. It is no longer on display. Shucks.

If half these idiots went to Rome and took a gander at some of the statues they'd freak especially of Bernini's St Teresa in Ecstasy


Well, it is an accurate representation given the royal f#*king that so many people throughout the world have received in his name...
