The Cosimo Cavallaro “Chocolate Jesus” front page art story has been kicked around like a confectionery political football since Wednesday. The religious side has spoken, as has the free speech cadre.

One makes allusions to the Mohammed cartoons while the other retorts with white vs black chocolate observations. I am more interested in what everyone else thinks about this more then the sum of the news itself. Since this is just the same type of front page story the fine art’s get year in and out just with different mediums or iconography each time.

While you are writing your POV listen to the even older Chocolate Jesus by Tom Waits.
