- UNDATED PHOTO - A statue of the Virgin Mary veiled in a condom is pictured in this undated photograph. An advertisement for the statue, provided by British-based artist Steve Rosenthal, has embarrassed the publishers of the U.S. Catholic magazine America, and prompted some heated comment on Catholic Web sites. America, a weekly run by the Jesuit order of priests, said in a statement it was embarrassed and offended by the ad, which it said had been published unknowingly in its December 5, 2005 edition. The apparent prank by Rosenthal offered what he called the Extra Virgin statue for sale, "a stunning .... statue of the Virgin Mary standing atop a serpent wearing a delicate veil of latex." Rosenthal said in a [media e-mail] on December 22, 2005, that "the primary aim of the work is to highlight the [Vatican's] continuance of non-advocation regarding the use of condoms and I conceived America magazine to be the most suitable place to contextualize the work outside of the gallery space and produce a dialogue."
