The Virgin Mary as a Voodoo Doll

Let me ask, would that piss you off? To see an artist's rendering of the Virgin Mary as a Voodoo doll, or the Pope as Adolf Hitler? Well, apparently it is pissing off a religious group in southwestern Ontario. The Art of Resistance is a documentary that features Argentenian artists who deliver powerful social commentary via artistic expression. It is going to be part of the Guelph International Film Festival which runs from November 3rd to the 5th. The religious group view the art as disrespectful to Christ and Catholicism. Can we please stop the madness?!
