    Too bad, the question is more than relevant:

    How is a sculpture of Jesus in chocolate any more or less offensive than one of him in marble or Play-doh (which I'm pretty sure I may have made in Catholic grade school)...

    what's chocolate got to do with it?

    Why do Christians hate chocolate?

    Would someone please explain to me what the big deal/controversy is? It is an art exhibit - One person’s artistic expression. I just don’t understand why people are upset. This is as much news as my saying that I had tomato soup for lunch yesterday.

    Its not considered as taboo because Christians are the majority, making popular opinion that they can handle it.
    They get what they want in other areas, far exceeding any petty issues.
    They lobbied the government to ban gay marriage, i think a chocolate jesus isnt that big a deal.

    In the Quran there are "rules" to the effect that there be no imagery of the Prophet Mohammed,
    Christians hang Jesus from rearview mirrors.

    the artist didnt break any "religious rules", why not show images of it?

    People take offence because one person isnt sure they like the chocolate Jesus, so they decide they are against Chocolate and Jesus, before they even bothered to analyze the situation and come to a rational decision, theyre banning chocolate at easter.

    Relax about the chocolate Jesus.

    They don't know which head to bite off first.

    Seriously, suppose it was a naked, chocolate Mohammed. Would the Muslim communtiy be offended? Would the display be taken down? You bet they would and you better believe it would, quick, fast, and in a hurry. Personally, I couldn't care less if it was Jesus, Mohammed, JFK, MLK, or William Shatner. You're right, it's art.

    YOU BASTARD! Tomato soup? Commie. ;)

    I think that the reaction would be similar. Simply put, if enough Christians were offended, the offensive image of Christ would be removed. If enough Muslims were offended, the offensive image of Mohamed would be removed.

    I remember “Piss Christ” and “The Last Temptation of Christ”. Christians had a hissy fit.
