No Maltese Dick for Pope Benedict! Mayor of Luqa, Malta, Pleads

     Pope Benedict XVI is visiting Malta, and all sorts of sordid discussions are taking place before his arrival.  One involves art, male genitalia, and an ancient Egyptian symbol that predate the Catholic Church (another, Hitler mustaches and Pedobear).

     BBC News reports:
     The mayor of a town in Malta has called for a "phallic" sculpture displayed close to the main airport to be removed ahead of the Pope's visit this weekend. Mayor John Schembri described the art work as "vulgar" and "embarrassing", saying it should go "as a sign of respect" for Pope Benedict XVI.
     Colonna Mediterranea was created by artist Paul Vella Critien and has been on show in the town of Luqa since 2006. Mr Critien responded by calling his critics "ignorant" and "uneducated". Mr Critien said his creation was not a phallic symbol but a modern representation of a symbol dating back to ancient Egypt.  [BBC photo to the left]
bloody crucifix Pictures, Images and Photos     As if the pope has never seen a cock before.  Please.  Give it a rest, Mayor Schembri.  Respect the pope by acknowledging that he's got a crosier and censer dangling between his legs, as tiny as they might be and even though the embers may have burnt out.

     Pope Ratzinger's probably got a poster of The Little Mermaid over the papal bed, right next to a naked, muscular, sweaty, and bloody Jesus hanging on an instrument of erotic torture.
