God’s Androgynous Angels Looking Too Gay for Dominican Catholic Church

Unaware that Jesus Christ, his lord and savior, is usually depicted in just a loincloth and wears the long hair of a lady, a Catholic priest wants his church in the Dominican Republic to remove the painting “Allegory of the Virgin of Carmen,” by the local artist Roberto Flore, because the he-she angels look too gay.

The priest Johnny Duran sparked the controversy surrounding the painting, after promoting the adoption by the Jarabacoa City Council of a resolution that revokes an earlier statement by the same council that designated the mural as municipal heritage.

Explaining his reason to revoke the previous decision and destroy the mural, the priest argues that the church congregation feels uncomfortable by the painting and that the mural does not inspire religious sentiments because the angels there depicted have a “diabolical, homosexual look” in their faces. Further, he contends that it is not clear whether the angels are male or female.

Further, if they could do something about that rainbow flag-colored stained glass in all the windows, that’d be super.

      Hmmmm….I wasn’t aware that angels were male or female???? I guess if one always believe god is a male, rather than an all encompassing spirit, than I can see how one could mistake angels on this same issue.

      I thought most X-tians practice HATE as their inspiration of an expression of their religious sentiments, so it sounds like the mural should stay unchanged.
