McJesus artwork sparks outrage among Israel’s Christians
Church representatives demanded a suspension order for exhibit items including Barbie doll renditions of Jesus and the Virgin Mary.
An art exhibit in Israel featuring a crucified Ronald McDonald has sparked protests by the country’s Arab Christian minority.
Hundreds of Christians calling for the removal of the artwork, titled McJesus, protested at the museum in the northern city of Haifa last week.
Church representatives brought their complaints to the district court on Monday, demanding a suspension order for the exhibit’s most offensive items, including Barbie doll renditions of Jesus and the Virgin Mary.
The museum has refused to bow to pressure, saying that doing so would infringe on freedom of expression.
