World AIDS Day marked by warnings - AIDS - "In Copenhagen, artist Jens Galschioet put up an eight-foot sculpture of a crucified pregnant teenager outside Copenhagen’s Lutheran cathedral. He called it a protest against the idea that “God allows nothing but chastity and unprotected sex.”

City authorities gave the artist permission to erect the statue, named “In the Name of God,” outside the cathedral.

Anders Gadegaard, the cathedral’s dean, appeared to welcome the message. “It’s a good supplement to the crucifix we have inside the church,” he said."

This was sent to me by a former student. A good caption for this article might be "If the blind lead the blind they shall both fall into the ditch."

O God, have mercy upon your poor church! Do not give to us according to our deserts, but pour out thy Holy Spirit in mercy and grace! Humble us before Thee, O God, and teach us to walk in your ways, for they are life, but the way of the ungodly is death.
