one must become meat always with one another and make meat

Without "reflection over the power of the meat" the art does not have radiant emittance strength.

What am I talking about?

The Last Supper as a gay orgy? Uproar in Vienna

The sketchy black-and-white picture shows the Twelve Apostles drinking, dancing, and well, getting extremely friendly with each other. It certainly isn’t the version of Christ’s Last Supper that most people are familiar with…

Austrian artist Alfred Hrdlicka’s version of the Last Supper as a homosexual orgy was supposed to be one of the highlights of an exhibition at the Dommuseum, the museum of Vienna’s Roman Catholic cathedral. An initial favourable review by the local Catholic news agency didn’t seem to find anything wrong. But blink and it’s gone — thanks to the intervention of Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, the archbishop of Vienna, after the painting sparked criticism in Austria and as far away as the United States. Here’s a protest article in German (with 61 comments and an explicit video about the exhibition) and a comically bad machine translation into English.wonderfully profound Babelfish Article with Angry Video (but you have to squint, my Lovelies)

Sigh...it's what year again?


All hail the power of the meat! Please, 12 guys wandering together... who hasn't thought "gay". I bet even Jesus' mom was a bit concerned when he didn't get married like good Jewish boys did.
I always thought the "This is my body..." shit was kinda gay.

Not in a bad way, though.
The Apostles went "fishing"...yeah.

Which reminds me, since I'm not Catholic. At what point is the wine and wafer actually supposed to transubstantiate? Catholics believe it literally and my niece is having her first communion this weekend. Does it magically change in mouth or the belly?

Yeah, gay boys all.
