Now why does the news media plaster pix of Chocolate Jesus all over the airwaves when they're too wimpy to show Cartoon Mohammed? It's OK to offend Catholics and Christians but don't you dare offend Muslims!

re your "British detainees " link:

It cracks me up that Europe was so keen on forming the EU, and into melding with Britian into one big, happy family; now they're leaving Britian high and dry. So we see the EU doesn't really mean anything or stand for anything when times get tough...

While I can't say I'm crazy about a 6ft. chocolate Jesus, I personally think the lack of a loin cloth is in very poor taste, and perhaps indicates a lack of knowledge of Christianity.

The "statue" itself leaves the door wide open for all manner of comments. Sadly some of these will undoubtedly fall into the area of pure filth.

And we wonder where our country is going, all the while denying God and refusing to do our best to obey the Ten Commandments and our own Constitution.

Rather than complain about the repeat and/or a new episode of "What Is a Christian?" we should try to take something from it and apply it to our daily living.

I was just thinking, has Bernard Law, Bishop of Boston, ever returned to the US with all his information and records about moving nasty priests who touch boys and probably girls around the U.S. or is Bernard having fun checking out bits and pieces, drinking wine, telling jokes, and living in the Vatican and protected by the laws of Vatican? I guess he will never return to the US for justice.

So, is this leader of the Catholic Church, the Pope, just as responsible for harboring priests under the safety and security of the Vatican himself?

Do we call this sane? I guess in the Catholic Church it is called sainthood.

All of this, to be honest with you all, makes me sick!

I agree with xtina 100%. Where is the reproprocity?

To Xtina,

Could not agree more with you, it's an outrage, for the sake of provoking ratings and shock value over what is accepted in today's society, just toss it to the curb when it comes to anything founded on a belief in God, To Maggie, I agree with what you stated as well, just imagine what our founding father's would think of our hip' free wheeling society today, these are just some of the reasons why they play a part of the larger picture , and the reason why America now seems so whimpy in the face of our enemies.

RE: British Detainee 'sacrificed....

I think that Iran is doing all of these things to try and provoke the US and Britain. I think they want us to make a move so they can retaliate. They've probably wanted to do this all along but had nothing to provoke us with.

They want to look like the big dog that can stand up to the best nation in the world. And have all of the world look at them as a nation that's up to par with the US. So they can feel like they are this great nation that in their minds they think they are. But in reality they are far, far below us. And if they keep on they may soon find this out the hard way, unfortunately!!

It is a real concern that the situation in Iran has escalated to the point it has. I am teaching WWI to my 10th grade students and we were talking today about the causes of WWI. It sure seems like history is repeating itself- the MAIN causes that got the world in trouble then are still true today. Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism and Nationalism. We should pay attention!

Let me make sure I'm understanding this correctly, a chocolate sculpture is angering a Catholic group? So, what your saying is that even though your savior died a terrible and painful death on the cross but the sight or mention of a harmless chocolate sculpture is enough to enrage you??? hahahaha how weak is your faith that this would have any imapact on you?

Let me guess, you're the same people who get upset when someone wishes you a happy holiday insead of merry christmas??? If you want to believe in some winged fairy in the sky and live your life in strict accordance to the bible (good luck on that one)then you absolutely have a right to do that but don't expect everyone to jump on your band wagon and have the same beliefs that you do. You don't have to be a Christian or even religious in order to be a good person.
So why don't all of you fundies get off your high horse, live your life as you see fit and leave the rest of us alone to do the same.

re: chocolate image of Jesus

My take is God gave us all bits n' pieces (hopefully), himself and Adam & Eve who didn't cover theirs until they were bad. Presumably, God was never bad so no reason to cover up. So I'm fine with it. I think we have bigger things to fuss over ;no pun intended!

About the chocolate Jesus. It was meant to get a rise out of christians. This is the sort of things wars are made of. Acts like this should be ignored and not given media attention. Without the attention, there would be absolutely no reason to do stupid things like create a chocolate Jesus for Holy Week just to tick people off.
Have a nice day.

Sculptures made out of food. What a wonderful idea. It allows the food industry to earn capital but doesn't add to the obesity epidemic.
Change is a good thing. Eventually the sculptures will decompose, which will allow for new ones to be built.
Chocolate has a great scent. Stick to foods that have a good scent.
