Frog Jesus

Today i saw Two interesting but completely unrelated things ,but had a common theme?
You ask what is it?
How apt is Frog+Jesus
While i was looking at these articles and video my brother commented as to how Jesus and frogs are related(Genuine Question).Well let us check it out

First Web-article:-

URL:-Frog Jesus

"He thought he could make a frog jesus... A nostalgic voyage takes a darker turn, exploring the naiveté of mankind through the eyes of a young boy. "

Second Web-article:- URL:-Crucified frog art returned to owner after Pope outcry "A modern art installation showing a crucified frog is to be taken down and returned to its Austrian owner after protests from the Pope. The work - by the German artist Martin Kippenberger, who died in 1997 - depicts a frog nailed to a cross with a mug of beer in one hand and an egg in the other. Curators of the "Museion" museum in Bolzano, Italy, are removing the work after Pope Benedict XVI condemned it as blasphemous. The sculpture will be returned to its owner, a Tyrol-based art lover In a letter written last month, Pope Benedict said that the sculpture "injured the religious feelings of many people who see in the Cross the symbol of the love of God and of our salvation, which deserves recognition and religious devotion." The museum, however, insists that the work is a self-portrait of the artist "in a state of profound crisis" and is not an attack on religion."

Now the answer,frog's look very similar to jesus when crucified.Well this is a very personal opinion.
Note:-No Frogs were harmed while writing this article :-)
