Our Buckley of Cork & Ross
June 24, 2011 by theraggedwagon
An exhibition in UCC Cork, Ireland, by Mexican-born artist Alma Lopez featuring a digital image of Our Lady of Guadalupe wearing a floral bikini and with her hands on her hips has been condemned as offensive by Irish bishop. Bishop of Cork and Ross Dr John Buckley said the image was offensive and unacceptable. This is from a member of a hierarchy that facilitated and covered up the sexual exploitation of children by clergy for decades. It beggars belief! In response I decided, as a show of support for Alma Lopez and UCC, to create my own little digital image.
