Today's Sermon: Crucified Frog Angers Pope
Never mind that the crucified frog is a work of art.
Never mind that it's a "self-portrait of the artist 'in a state of profound crisis.'"
Never mind that the exhibiting "museum's governing committee decided 'by a clear majority' to keep it on display."
Never mind that the guy screaming the loudest (and writing to Il Papa for help fighting the frog) is a politician:
Franz Pahl, president of the regional council, said the work was "not art but a blasphemy and a disgusting piece of trash that offends many people."
Alois Lageder, the museum's director, told The Independent, "The controversy has been exploited by politicians including Mr Pahl for electoral reasons. It's true the pressure was heavy but we are an autonomous museum and we have taken our decision. The work aroused a lot of argument among visitors, many liked it and many disliked it – but the public row was merely political. And it has gone on long enough."
Thus endeth today's sermon.
Go forth today and consider the motives behind those who cry, "Blasphemy" at every possible turn. How proud this poltician must feel, having moved the Pope to action!
Wait a minute.
Proverbs 26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
Just think about it.
I mean it, damn it!
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
Here's Donna now...
