Already rather well-known for taking on Hell’s Bible (The New York Times) for its anti-Catholicism, His Excellency notices the rampant anti-Catholicism not only in the ant-covered-Jesus exhibit at the Smithsonian, but also notes that taking offense to this is, apparently: bullying, (ridiculous) censorship, and acting like a “blowhard.”

It almost seems to be an unspoken rule that Christians, and Catholics in particular, are not supposed to respond to criticism, insults, and slights towards their faith with anything more than a smile. Certainly we shouldn’t actually say anything.  For some reason, this is not expected of our other religious neighbors – Jews and Muslims – or of any other group, such as blacks or gays.

Apparently, Catholics shouldn’t take offense when our  sacred objects are depicted disrespectfully in the name of art. And we certainly shouldn’t let anyone know we are offended if we are.
