Are asking me? It's not offensive to tell if yu like the statue or not. "De gustibus non disputandum est". It's not offensive if yu tell, the white color of the statue is ugly. It's not offensive if yu say: "i would never give a cent to pay for this statue". But the picture mentioned above is just respectless. Where is your toleration towards other minded? where is your respect to ppl's faight? To their right to have religion? So open minded are yu by insulting ppl?
This picture with Jesus as a biker with shades is not only stupid but also insulting.
Yu could even post such pic of my face, but back off from Jesus!

Making fun of God and even religion symbols is wrong. You can say, i might be wrong with following my religion, but making fun of it ist wrong. Make yur own opinion, and say it, but dont laugh.

Making fun of religion? Jesus on a bike nowadays is the same as Jesus on a donkey 2000 years ago.

Well, I'd rather say that it's insulting for Jesus that he has a golden crown on this statue. I don't think Jesus would have liked it.

technically saying Heaven is kingdom and God is king, so Jesus, as entity of Trinity, is king himself.
Furthermore, the statue is named "Christ the King (of the Universe)", so the crown is essential here as part of the symbols.

All the discussion about religion etc. is off-topic here. Just appreciate the beauty of the statue (especially if compared with many other statues of Christ).

I like the Jesus in Rio better. Christ the Redeemer has a much humbler, kind look while this statue makes Jesus look like a Medieval King. If I had to pick, i'd visit the Rio one. And you can never top the setting of Christ the Redeemer. But this will bring in the tourists, no doubt about it.

The Polish Christ looks like one of the Kings of Númenor.
He had to look like a king, so no wonder He does.

Well I think they did a good job, but the real Jesus had a slightly longer beard.

Is that the polish eagle on his crown? Wow, thats cool. It is almost as pathetic as an American Jesus wrapped into an US flag.

We've got a lot of them, but Christ cannot be king of Poland b/c Saint Mary is already Queen of Poland (thus her son cannot be king in the same time; she would have to abdicate).
He could be a prince though.
