Cardinal Sin

Banksy's latest is this sculpture for the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.  It's called 'Cardinal Sin', and he offers this Christmas greeting, “At this time of year it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity – the lies, the corruption, the abuse.”   

Merry Christmas everyone!

Footnote - Cardinal Sin was the real name of the head of the Catholic Church in the Philippines at the time of the overthrow of Marcos after crowds of people refused to accept the corrupt elections.  Some of those leading the line were nuns who sat in the path of tanks.  Grrrrrr - those pesky Christians, nothing but trouble!
