(Newser) – The US Catholic League has complained about an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm that shows Larry David accidentally urinating on a painting of Jesus hanging in a bathroom. Other characters then think the painting is miraculously crying. "Was Larry David always this crude?" asked angry league president Bill Donahue. "Would he think it comic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother?" A statement from HBO said the humor of the program is "always playful and certainly never malicious," reports the Telegraph.
