If the Vatican's is sacrilegious because the Lord is hard to spot, what would you all say about the above Nativity scene?

I don't think the Vatican Nativity is blasphemous because Our Lord is hard to spot, I think it's blasphemous because it contains a figure of a nude dude, with sexy five o'clock shadow, who looks as if he forgot his clothes after a porn photo shoot or had them stolen at the gay gym!

Of course, I'm no longer surprised. If you haven't read this, you should.

Listen, I am definitely not a fan of nudes in religious art, but if it's always blasphemous to do so, then the Vatican has been covered in blasphemous art for centuries, yet only now it's bad? Ever since the Renaissance have artists been projecting their fascination with the human body onto religious art and even figures, just look at the Last Judgement, you can't even count how many fully or nearly nude figures adorn it, certainly makes this nativity scene look tame.

For centuries art was the primary "media" and every work of art has a message.

Christmas is time for reflecting on the innocence and purity of Mary and the Christ Child coming into our fallen world.

That is not the message coming through on this nativity scene.

Nude art is not blasphemous unless the message conveyed is blasphemous or sinful.

There is a time and a place for nudes in art and the message communicated by their presence in the work.

This is neither the time nor the place.
