STOP Public Sacrilege at the MET

The world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is attacking the Catholic Church with an exhibit -- open until October 8, 2018 -- called "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."

For example:

The rosary is attacked: Currently on public display is a perverse sexual bondage mask draped with multiple rosaries.

The Mother of God is insulted: One of the dresses featured has a very short black skirt with a sleeveless and shoulderless top and an icon of Our Lady on the front and back.

The priesthood is ridiculed: The exhibit includes many women’s dresses modeled after clerical attire worn by bishops and priests. Many of the dresses are transparent and extremely revealing.

Tell the MET that sacrilege is not art!

Sadly, part of the exhibit displays over 50 vestments and sacred objects on loan from the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture approved of the Vatican’s participation in such an exhibit.

Leftist media outlets and Hollywood bigwigs are celebrating the degrading mix of the sacred with the sacrilegious.

According to Andrew Bolton, Head Curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, the exhibit’s purpose is to express the influence of Catholic imagery on designers.

However, this is not the influence of the Church upon the world, but of the world upon the Church! Immodesty, women priests and mocking Catholicism is not part of the religion Our Lord Jesus Christ founded.

But the exhibit sinks lower. One of the "highlights" of the exhibit is by designer John Galliano for the fashion brand Christian Dior. Andrew Bolton (who lives with his same-sex partner) describes the showpiece as “A sort of figment of John’s imagination of a pope.” It is a dress made to look like papal vestments, with a miter and a narrow female waistline.

This public sacrilege must be stopped.
