Unspeakable blasphemy - Petertherock - 11-19-2010

Warning: Caution.  This news is very disturbing.
Protest blasphemous statue of Our Lady wrapped in a giant c o n d o m!!!


Protest this blasphemous statue NOW.


Dear Mr. Darryl Smith,

According to press reports, there is a statue of the Blessed Mother on display in the meeting hall of the Lower Austrian Diet, in Austria...

. . . it's being called the "C o n d o m Madonna" because it is wrapped in a giant c o n d o m and s p e r m.

This is shocking.  Outrageous.  Terribly blasphemous!

The statue was designed by the Australian "artist" Mark Rossell.

Protest this blasphemous statue NOW.

This is a horrific insult to the Most Pure and Immaculate Mother of God.

And it tramples on the religious beliefs of millions of Catholics, because Our Lady is the Mother of God and ours, who is spotless and f r e e of sin and blemish.

Thank God, our sister organization in Austria is working hard to protest this horrific blasphemy.  Now, it is up to you and me to spread this peaceful protest all over the world.

Protest this blasphemous statue NOW.

Absolutely vile.

Perhaps we should all dedicate our next rosaries to repairing Our Lady's wounded Immaculate Heart.

They know that we won't send death threats or burn buildings or demonstrate violently in response, so they do things like this.

Two things:

1. Is this not a "Hate Crime"?  Sure, I know they call it "artistic freedom of expression", and all that. But it is indeed a hate crime.

2. If this happened to a picture of Mohammed, Moslems would be up in arms, taking to the streets. Why don't Catholics publically protest (perhaps boycott?) in situations like these? When do we take to the streets and demand justice (see #1)

It isn't a "hate crime" because it isn't a crime.  If the artist had vandalized a statue belonging to someone, that would be a crime and the prosecutor could then decide if it qualifies as a hate crime.

And why don't Catholics publicly protest?  I don't know.  Why don't you start?  I'll catch up with you later.  (Sorry, I'm just being facetious.  Protest would be a good idea but sometimes I think it just garners more attention to the blasphemy.  The "artwork" has no artistic merit.  It can be assumed that the artist is doing it solely for attention.  Why give it to him?)

Because in Austria there are very few Catholics left (minuscule numbers at most). 

Whacked out Novus Ordo goers, yes - but Catholics?  A very rare breed indeed.
