As been told by the press a planned Holy Week exhibition of a nude, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ was canceled Friday amid a choir of complaining Catholics that included Cardinal Edward Egan.
The 'My Sweet Lord' display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in midtown Manhattan, as said by Matt Semler, the gallery's creative director. Semler said he submitted his resignation after officials at the Roger Smith Hotel had shut down the show. Christians and non-Christians alike get into the Easter spirit by eating a chocolate bunny or two. Only an individual with deformed sensibilities would choose the Holy Week to exhibit a exposed, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ
