Some parishioners at a Catholic church near Oklahoma City are outraged over this crucifix that hangs above the main altar, which they say shows genitalia on Jesus’ abdomen. In fact, the crucifix is meant to show Christ’s “distention,” or abdominal swelling, according to the church’s pastor. You can read all about it in The Oklahoman. In a poll on the newspaper’s Web site, 58 percent say they aren’t offended by the image, while 42 percent say they are. Personally, I would agree with those who say it looks an awful lot like genitalia, but at the same time, I don’t find that the least bit offensive.
