“Artists from DaVinci to Botticelli have embedded subliminal images into their art for centuries,” said Calace. “In this case we found penises on crucifixes, anarchy symbols, swastikas, demonic faces and in modern works even the word ‘sex’ encrypted into the images. The works in question include modern artists’ work currently on the covers of missalettes and hymnals that at this very moment sit in the pews of churches throughout the U.S. and on children’s religious teaching aids.”Calace said, “‘Rape of the Soul’ was created to heal the many that have suffered from these uninvited violations.”
You know how something can be so deeply deranged that it is just awesome? This is like that. What’s good for rock music and soft drink ads is good for centuries of devotional artwork!
I think that whoever named this “Rape of the Soul” should get some kind of “completely inappropriate use of a loaded word” award. You know, like if somebody were to refer to a blight on grapefruit as a “Citrus Holocaust.”

I almost want to see this, except for the fact that I would never get those hours of my life back.
