… within 20 minutes of its installation. Story here.
If memory serves, Pope Francis loved the statue and took one home with him.
In this latest incarnation, the church that installed it got complaints from the observers that if they “really” loved Jesus, they wouldn’t put up a statue of Him. They “should” provide real benches for the homeless to sleep on. Maybe a blanket too. (As if their neighborhood, which complained in 20 minutes about a work of art, would like real homeless in the same place any better.)
