Michelle Malkin is an Idiot
“Chocolate Jesus” exhibit canceled after gallery staff receives death threats from radical Christians

Michelle Malkin conveniently omits this bit of information from her tirade today:

NEW YORK — A planned Holy Week exhibition of a nude, anatomically correct chocolate sculpture of Jesus Christ was canceled Friday amid a choir of complaining Catholics that included Cardinal Edward Egan.

The “My Sweet Lord” display was shut down by the hotel that houses the Lab Gallery in midtown Manhattan, said Matt Semler, the gallery’s creative director. Semler said he submitted his resignation after officials at the Roger Smith Hotel shut down the show.

[…]

The hotel and the gallery were overrun Thursday with angry phone calls and e-mails about the exhibit. Semler said the calls included death threats over the work of artist Cosimo Cavallaro, who was described as disappointed by the decision to cancel the display.

“In this situation, the hotel couldn’t continue to be supportive because of a fear for their own safety,” said Semler.

Setting aside the comparisons to the Danish cartoon controversy, you’d think that after just recently accusing blogger Kathy Sierra of “cutting and running” for canceling a public appearance in the face of death threats, Michelle Malkin would have similar words for the hotel and gallery staff who bowed to the threats of radical Christians. You’d think. But you would be wrong.
