UNICEF warns that AIDS is at near epidemic levels in Eastern Europe.

In Europe, AIDS awareness was raised with religious services and agitprop art…

In Copenhagen, Denmark, artist Jens Galschioet put up an 8-foot sculpture of a crucified pregnant teenager outside Copenhagen’s Lutheran cathedral. He called it a protest against the idea that “God allows nothing but chastity and unprotected sex.”

City authorities gave the artist permission to erect the statue, named “In the Name of God,” outside the cathedral.

Anders Gadegaard, the cathedral’s dean, said, “It’s a good supplement to the crucifix we have inside the church.”

I’m thinking: What are the city authorities thinking? What is the Cathedral’s dean thinking? Does anyone on this blog know whether Lutheran pastors are funded by the taxpayers in Denmark?
