Swiss Catholic church displays Nativity scene consisting of minarets

I received this picture in an e-mail and I was sure it was PhotoShopped. But it turns out that it’s real. The Sacre-Coeur de Bellinzona church in Switzerland is displaying it as a “work of art” by two artists—Matteo Casoni and Letizia Fontana—as part of a larger display of nativity scenes. The two say they wanted to make people think about other religions. The idea came to them after the Swiss vote on minarets. The priest of the church approved the display, saying: “We accept all creations. The only requirement is that they be of a certain artistic level … the fact that a cradle with minarets is in a Franciscan church only reinforces the message of peace and dialogue.”

I had exactly the same thought. They looked like ballistic missiles to me. I hadn’t spelled out in my mind the further message that you see in the missile-like minarets, but it makes sense.
