Chocolate Jesus May Prompt Boycott
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
There are two sides to Easter. There's the Christian holiday, and then there's the deal with the bunny and the eggs, and maybe some candy too. A group called the Catholic League wants to boycott a New York hotel that is mixing the two sides. It's displaying a sculpture of Jesus made of chocolate. It's described as, quote, "the 485,460-calorie Messiah." People will be invited to eat it on Easter Sunday.
