    The fact that the artist is trying to bring to a "taboo" topic to attention. Said topic is that some (a small minority IMO) of Catholic officials (priests, bishops, cardinals etc) are accused of child abuse and the catholic church has paid the accusers to buy their silence from them.

    He's completely missed the meaning of Christianity, and focused on the corrupt few that exist in the church (pretty much like any other organisation). Perhaps this idiot needs to read a few pages of the bible.

    You are aware the bible condones murder, mutilation, beastiality, and prostitution right?

    Allow me

    Exodus: Chapter 2, Verses 11 - 12
    11: One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people.
    12: Looking this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.

    Ezekiel Chapter 23, Verses 19 - 20
    19: Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt.
    20: There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

    Deuteronomy Chapter 25, Verses 11 - 12
    11: If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts,
    12: you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.

    Samuel Chapter 18, Verses 25 - 27
    25: And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines.
    26: And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired.
    27: Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.

    It seems a valid statement to make. Just because all organisations have a corrupt few, does not mean that it should not be highlighted, investigated and prosecuted where necessary. Which is what the Catholic church failed to do, for their own selfish motives.

    I'm not offended by the artwork. I'm not offended that he thinks there may be some officials whom have done bad things. I am offended however, that he has tarred all Christians with that brush with his comments.

    I think everyone's being tactful with their posts at the moment.

    I shared the link as I found it interesting. I have my views/opinions on the Catholic churches morality but I don't think this thread is the place for it so I'm abstaining.

    I think I kind of agree with Hightower. Not just because it tars everyone with the same brush but also because it attacks Christianity full stop. Were that to be a religious figure from any other religion it would not be allowed to be displayed for fear of offending that particular religion, whereas it appears that it matters not who it offends within the Christian world.

    So do I, but I'm not complaining about his view on the Catholic Church. I'm complaining about his view on Christianity - the following of Jesus Christ. That's what he is attacking in his comments - not the church.
