School covers statue of priest handing boy his penis. Or bread. You decide

I guess you could say the statue is completely innocent, and any vile suggestions are due to the observer’s twisted mind.   But if that was the case, why has it been covered up?  

No ISIS jokes please.

A Catholic boys school has been forced to cover up a brand new statue after a rather unfortunate design created a storm on social media.

Blackfriars Priory School in Adelaide last week unveiled a statue of St Dominic handing a young boy a loaf of bread.

However the design featuring a boy kneeling at the foot of the 12th century Spanish-born saint has caused embarrassment to the inner-city school, which teaches boys from kindergarten to year 12.

The school was forced to cover the statue with a black cloth after students took inappropriate photos on Friday, the Adelaide Advertiser reports.
This week, it was completed cordoned off.

Images of the statue were shared on Instagram page S***Adelaide, attracting 1315 likes and more than 359 comments by Wednesday morning.

‘Like who the hell designed, approved and erected it and no one thought about it?’,’ one critic said.

It’s a fair question.

It is either naive or deliberate.  And can people really be that innocent in 2017?

The children clearly were not.
