Bashing the Bishop

From the Kansas City Star (via Christianity Today):

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A statue criticized as anti-Catholic continues to cause problems for Washburn University, a week after a federal judge ruled that the school does not have to remove it from campus…The sculpture, entitled “Holier Than Thou,” depicts the bust of a scowling, heavyset clergyman wearing a ceremonial headgear called a miter. Some observers believe the miter looks like a penis, and have said the statue insults Catholics.
