    Is it that the sculpture is too big? I mean, from what we've been hearing, the catholic priests much prefer the smaller ones, found usually on young boys.

    There's an obelisk right in the middle of St Peter's square and plenty of nude sculpture throughout the Vatican. Somehow I don't see the pope batting an eye at this thing.

    He'd only be offended if they put a giant condom on it.

    You're right. He said he wanted it removed rather than covered up.

    Phallic object is disrespectful but covering up young boy touching catholic priest is ok?

    Right...

    Perhaps if they'd passed out more of those among the priesthood, they would not have had all the pederasty laws problems. It seems to have worked out this way for the Orthodox Church...

    Somehow the words Pope and penis just don't look kosher together.

    I did not think penis when I saw the photo... altho it is taller than it is wide, admittedly.

    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the treatises of Freud,
    He has charted out the pitfalls that my ego must avoid,
    A thing's a phallic symbol if it's longer than it's wide,
    And the id goes marching on....

    I wonder if he's also offended when he sees the Seattle Space Needle and the Washington Monument.

    There are over one billion members of the Catholic Church and more than 400,000 Priests. OK, there are more Chinese and more Muslims, but it's still a significant number.

    How many of the 400K priests are pederasts?

    Probably no more than the general population. I think the circumstances accentuate the problem.

    Artistic convention has always insisted on much smaller than average penises in painting and sculpture. This must be a Catholic hang up, goodness knows it has so many. The Celts exagerated willies in art then embraced (at the end of a sword) Romanization.
