This Sunday an Austrian state-artist, stalinist, blasphemer and pornographer Alfred Hrdlicka was buried in Vienna.

The mediahungry vienese Cathedral Priest Anton Faber provided a Catholic burial for the blasphemous artist.

What followed was a caberet act where many of Vienna's leftist politicians came to mourn in the presence of unappealing bronze statues where Father Faber in his solemn black cope read the blessing for the unrepentant Communist and blessed him with holy water as his red laquered casket was lowered into the ground with a hammer and chisel atop it in place of the traditional crucifix; meanwhile a gypsy choir sang Communist songs predicting the victory of the Red Revolution, which had cost the lives of so many Christiains.

It should go without saying that canon law forbids the burial of non-Catholics (Hrdlika was Old Catholic) and unrepentant sinners.

The following video shows some of his hideous "artworks" which adorn the Barbara Chapel in the St. Stephens Cathedral in which his funeral service was held, where Fr. Faber announced that "we are hopeful of his eternal life". Perhaps he meant something about posterity? We want to be charitable and not take things out of context after all...

Disgusting.
See thisis why I dont believe the NO Church is the Catholic Church
I did a quick search on this guy and found out about his artwork... specifically about one show, sponsored  by the church  In which the last supper was depicted as a "homosexual orgy"  this angered some people and so...

" Vienna's archbishop, Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, has now ordered the "homosexual orgy" picture, entitled Leonardo's Last Supper, to be taken down.
"This has nothing to do with censorship", said the Cardinal, adding that it was removed with "reverence for the sacred".

...It might be art, in as much as self expression in a medium is art, but did the Cardinal just call it sacred?

"Sedevacantists are welcome, but are not allowed to promote sedevacantism or post in such a way that invites debate about whether, in fact, the sede is vacante. '

While I certainly don't approve of the burial, I think the Church has had a problem with this kind of thing for quite some time before VII.

I don't know the poster personally, but just by stating that the NO (or post-Conciliar) church isn't the Catholic Church doesn't make one sedevacantist. Otherwise priests and bishops like Archbishop Lefebvre would be branded sedevacantist.

Sure, the Church has been buying frescoes of homosexual orgies, parodying the Last Supper for centuries, and then defending them as "great art" and condemning the offended masses as, gasp, unenlightened for centuries;  of course, long before Vatican II.  Yeah, the Quatracento was full of that sort of thing, the gay porno thing.
I wonder what happened to His Eminence to go nuts in the last couple years. He used to be one of the good guys.
