Cardinal asks ‘blasphemous’ artist: Can you do that to your own father? | Inquirer News:
"MANILA, Philippines—Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales condemned on Monday the art exhibit at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) depicting a crucifix with a wooden penis and a picture of Jesus Christ with the ears of a rabbit.
Speaking on Church-run Radio Veritas, Rosales said the exhibit of Mideo Cruz “abused” freedom of expression and urged the faithful to “rise up” in protest against it.
“It’s an abuse of freedom because the use of freedom must respect responsibilities. There’s a responsibility not to destroy culture, civilization or the good conduct of persons,” Rosales said."
