It is not news to have a Catholic art scandal — this goes all the way back to the medieval times. But Catholic art scandals, for me, bring up questions about body and sexuality in teachings of Catholicism. In addition, I wonder how much those teachings have influenced non-practicing Catholics.
This recent scandal includes a sexologist named Goedele Liekens who posed with a habit on the cover of her magazine. In addition, a bag comes with each issue with a candied host, her picture, and text that read: Take, Eat, This is My Body. Understandably, Catholics are upset (by clicking this link, you understand that I no way condone the terrible secular tone of the article therein).
