    I'm an atheist, but the idea of blasphemy has always intruiged me.

    Can someone explain to me how this is blasphemous?

    Surely, if your imaginary friend is so mighty and powerful, that would extend to having a sense of humour? A mighty powerful one?

    it would only be blasphemy for Christians. It makes light of the suffering and death of Christ. At the very least its in poor taste, even blasphemy might be a stretch.

    In a letter of support for Pahl, the Vatican said the sculpture "wounds the religious sentiments of so many people who see in the cross the symbol of God's love".


    A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. You think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fvcking cross? It's like going up to Jackie Onassis wearing a rifle pendant.

    Was Jesus the only person who was ever crucified?

    God is supposed to be the ultimate Alpha Male Gangsta. You don't disrespect him or his crew will curse you with magic spells and you might even get jumped!

    It's like pissing on the flag to a patriot.

    [1] no [2] no [3] but the point is he died without sin, and entered eternal life. but blasphamy is to use the lords name in vain, tho even this is forgiveable but not to the holy spirit, no not sure why but i except it.

    I pray that you came to light that God realy exist, that Jesus Christ realy is God and was crusified for our sins (yes yours allso), that the Holy Spirit is allso God. Once a guy challenged me to prove that God exist, you know to this day i can not give proof to anybody that does not believe. I hope that you dont find out that He exist after you had passed away, that would be a big calamity! 🙂🙂

    Isn't blasphemy the only thing giving value to that piece?
