Why is a bent cross blasphemous? Really not being sarcastic, I just want to know?

The depiction alone is, ipso facto, profane and disrespectful and therefore blasphemes Our Lord. Someone could argue, "that's just your opinion" and therefore entirely subjective.

The best line of argument is to note the sculpture is directly based on the depiction of the Twelfth Station Of The Cross by Albert Servae, whose artwork was formally condemned by Pope Benedict XV. One can not make a reverent crozier when one is copying an irreverent piece of art. In law, it's an application of the "fruit of the poisonous tree" principle.

Now some nitwit who's really reaching might claim that he doesn't "see" Servae's art as influencing Scorzelli's sculpture. i.e. My perception of the artistic influence isn't there.

Fine. As the article notes, On September 11, 1670, under Pope Clement X, the Holy Office prohibited the making of crucifixes “in a form so coarse and artless, in an attitude so indecent, with features so distorted by grief that they provoke disgust rather than pious attention”

...meaning, whoever 'influenced' the Scorzelli cross, it still falls under previous and still active Papal condemnation simply on its own merits or, more precisely, lack thereof..
