Stick Jesus

Looks like an ordinary group photo right? Look closer at the crucifix.

Why do we mock ourselves? Im wondering if in the past 2000 years the average Catholic church would have ever had such a thing since it looks like a mockery. Oddly enough it looks like they have the tabernacle right in the middle under the cross not off to the side as is the norm these days. Photo from this website

I should also mention you never see a modern art Buddha or Shinto deity here.  If anyone knows of such a thing let me know because right now Im convinced only us Catholics in particular have distorted our religion so much.

Rather typical resurrection-crucifix that you can find at way too many parishes. I own diocese had plenty of them till my new bishop came along and many have been replaced or modified into standard crucifixes.

It is quite incongruous to have the resurrection and the cross as one symbol.
