Cracker on the Cross?


I'm almost speechless, and I dare not comment. I discovered this image online today, but I have no idea who originated it or what that person intended to convey. For instance, I do not know whether the individual concerned is protesting or celebrating the crucifixion of the cracker. Perhaps deifying the cracker in his own image?

Of course the big question is, just what is the word "cracker" intended to convey here?

It's just a mockery of Catholicism. Here's an article about it:

Silly me. I've since read about this, but when I first encountered this symbol, its intended meaning never occurred to me, so I went to my default association about crackers.
