Have to love it when you find someone who is on the same page with you.
Pistol Pete made a great post about this topic.
In celebration of Holy Thursday, All Soul’s Episcopal church in downtown Manhattan will unveil a contemporary ice sculpture based on Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. It’s called The Next Last Supper.
“We want to capitalize on the buzz with the chocolate Jesus,” said Pastor Ima Airettick. “We also want to carve away our tradition and shape it into something relevant, something that people today can digest.”
Necessary Therapy was given an exclusive sneak preview at the sculpture.
The part of Jesus is played by a pregnant bearded woman, sitting Buddha-style on the table. She has her arms around Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump. Others depicted in the sculpture include Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, Paris Hilton, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Yoko Ono, Osama bin Laden, Anna Nicole Smith, Oscar Wilde and the cartoon character Dilbert.
”Why Dilbert?” we asked the creator behind the sculpture, who goes by the = symbol. = replied, “We want to be inclusive of the animated world. Besides, Dilbert is a big draw.”
The part of Judas Iscariot in the sculpture is played by Jesus. When asked about this, he shrugged his shoulders and said, “Isn’t Holy Week all about making fun of Jesus? We’re just doing our part to add to the celebration.”
Sad to see the hatred of some towards the Christian faith. There is making fun, and responsible satire for self-reflection and then there is what is shown above.
