What do you expect?

Conditioning of the masses render them incapable of doing anything else.

Could it have been the anatomically correct representation?

It is possible, what I find amusing about the uproar over Christ's nudity by the Catholic Church is found right in their stations of the cross.

Station X

The Mystery

This Station represents how our Lord Jesus Christ ascended Mount Calvary, and was by His inhuman executioners stripped of His garments. The skin and congealed blood are torn off with them, and his wounds renewed.



Consider the confusion of the modest lamb, exposed naked to the contempt and derision of an insulting rabble. They present Him with vinegar and gall for a refreshment. Condemn here that delicacy of taste, that sensual indulgence, with which you flatter your sinful body. Pray here for the spirit of Christian mortification. Think how happy you would die if, stripped of the world and its attachments, you could expire covered with the blood and agony of Jesus.

Prayer

Suffering JESUS, I behold You stripped of Thy garments, thy old wounds renewed, and new ones added to the old. I behold You naked in the presence of thousands, exposed to the inclemency of the weather; cold, trembling from head to foot, insulted by the blasphemous derision of the spectators. Strip, O mangled Lamb of God, my heart of [attachments to]the world and its deceitful affections. Divest my soul of its habits of sensual indulgence. Let me [give up] cup of pleasure, that I may dash it with contempt from my lips, and through Christian mortification arrive at Thy never fading glory. Amen, Jesus.

What I never got is why when a male religious statue is portrayed naked, well....why is the penis so small in comparison to the rest? And I know this sounds hard to believe but I am serious. Like Michelangelo's David, beautiful work. however, I would be insulted ermmmm, well, I do not possess an appendage but if I did and was portrayed as such I would be insulted.

But back to comment, I mean come on, if it is going to be nakey anyway, make it right! It makes them appears impotent. So are they saying they are males who were asexual? If Jesus was tempted by Satan in the desert then is that not saying he could be tempted?

I think it's the "sacred cow" mentality. They probably feel that this would open Christ up to mocking about his genitalia size or something. They feel is would be "disrespectful" in some manner. Given the fact they have quite a few "in the buff" statues in their sanctuaries (cherubs, saints and the like) I fail to see the problem myself.

As for size, I feel Seinfeld covered it best. "Shrinkage". Wink
