Bake Jesus Day - July 3rd

This posting gives details of the upcoming Bake Jesus Day which is a protest against Spanish suppression of freedom of speech.

Javier Krahe, a musician from Spain, has been charged with blasphemy simply because of a benign and victimless act of self-indulgence committed over 3 decades ago. Krahe made a satirical home video in 1978, in which he oven-baked a properly seasoned statue of Jesus that he pulled off a crucifix. A few frames from this 54 second video were shown on Spanish TV more recently and the Catholic church went all batshit crazy over it. Now Krahe could end up paying a fine of up to 192,000 euros.



I have set myself a reminder to get cooking that day!
