Catholic League vs. Chocolate Jesus' creator on Opie & Anthony

This morning on Opie and Anthony, the boys had a somewhat impromptu get together between Bill Donahue from the Catholic League and Cosimo Cavallaro, the artist who created My Sweet Lord. There is a bit about it (including audio) on Foundry Music:

Bill Donohue from the Catholic League, who is now a friend of the Opie and Anthony Show, and Cosimo Cavallaro, who is known for creating imaginative pieces of art out of food, debate his 'Chocolate Jesus' statue. The six-foot display, playfully dubbed "My Sweet Lord," infuriated Catholics, including Cardinal Edward Egan, who described it as "a sickening display." Donohue had said it was "one of the worst assaults on Christian sensibilities ever."

This is just some amazing radio, and Bill Donahue wins line of the day: "Could it be art also if we had a chocolate figure of [Cavallaro's] mother, with genitalia exposed, and we asked everybody to eat her on Mother's day?"
