Controversial 'Piss Christ' art back in NY
NY Post ^ | 9/21/12

Posted on 09/21/2012 3:08:03 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

The controversial “Piss Christ” artwork Sen. Alfonse D’Amato once branded as a “deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity,” is coming to New York, and security is being heavily ramped- up at the gallery that will show the piece. Andres Serrano’s work — a “photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine” — first ignited controversy in 1989 when D’Amato complained to the US Senate that it was an “outrage,” an “indignity” and a “piece of trash” that had been funded by taxpayers. Serrano had won a $15,000 prize for his work, backed in part by the National Endowment for the Arts But the piece — which will be on display as part of a retrospective of the New York artist’s work at Edward Tyler Nahem gallery beginning Thursday — is still causing controversy over two decades later.

The embassy takeovers by Christian extremists wil go down in 5...4...3... Trashing anything Christian gets you an NES grant. Spraying a swastika on a synagogf gets you at wors a slap on the wrist, community service, and with the right judge an ACD. Upset islime sensibilities...

I believe Madame Hillary stood up for a similar sickening display a few years back, did she not?

I say we should be as peaceful as the muslims are especially to the pantywaist who created this ‘’POS”. Maybe he’ll volunteer to sleep in a cage full of cow manure and then put it on display on the upper West Side

The timing of this is perfect to show the staggering hypocrisy of the left on “respecting another’s religion”.

Watch - rather than draw a comparison favorable to Christianity the press will instead use this disgusting exhibit as an opportunity to impute to christians all of the bad characteristics that we've come to recognize in muslims.

Complete with pictures of police guarding the exhibit against extremist attacks, etc.

The reason why libs will always defend Islam is simple, the left hates America just as much as the Muslims do so they find a connection with them..meanwhile you can trash Christianity and Judaism and every other religion and nothing happens, but when you say something about that pedophile Muhammad what happens, riots happen

Before folks get hysterical, let us remember that the whole thing that made this ugly work a subject of public comment was the fact that it got government money (OUR money) for its promotion.

Otherwise it would have been just one of the many pieces of mindless, “progressive” trash shown in any old gallery.

So if this is not sponsored by government money (OUR money), we need to ignore it.

This is being presented to bait Christians and make them look as bad as Muslims.

Don’t fall for the bait. Keep the focus on the government money aspect.

They need to get ahead of the story out of Bellflower, CA:

St. George Coptic Church now has armed protection for all services, but apparently the media doesn’t think it newsworthy.

Ha! Too funny ~ but it’s a simple ‘sculpture’ painstakingly crafted from fetid camel dung and the blood of virgins...

He is a coward, much like those who arm their children with explosives and send them into crowds.

It sounds beautiful, maybe with just a touch of FM floating on the top, and perhaps garnish with a small wad of TP for ambiance.

I would just bypass the snotty arts and croissant crowd, and post it directly on the internet so millions can view it.

Verbal disagreement = burning down embassies and killing ambassadors.

I’m sure that’ll be the parallel that’s drawn.

Lead them to repentance, Lord Jesus. Amen.

OK - so when do we get to go burn a Gallery to the ground? It might be amusing to see Obama blame free expression and apologize to us for a change.

/sarcasm

I am glad somebody brought that "Art" back to the limelight. I remember when it came out. Christians all over the place, we were bitching and complaining. But to my knowledge there is no death threat to the "Artist" and nothing got burned down.

Now....it is said that people in HIGH places monitor Freep. I have a sugestion.... If somebody on the right has to go against a member of C.A.I.R or some other Islamic apologist. Get your hands on a copy of your typical Islamic school book and get to the part about Gays and Jews. Glen Beck's Web site has mention of it.

SAUDI ARABIAN ‘JIHADIST’ SCHOOL TEXT BOOKS REPORTEDLY CALL FOR THE ANNIHILATION OF JEWS & GAYS

And throw their twisted logic back in their faces.

Condoms on the White House Christmas tree— for real. What a disgusting waste of cells this harridan is. More power to Michele Bachman and pursuing the Huma Abedin/Muslim Brotherhood connection— inasmuch as she and Hills are “ a couple”, and Huma’ husband is... a Weiner.

Truly disgusting all the way around.

Oh my goodness, my plate is so full right now, I can’t do anything, I’ll be goshdarn lucky if I get done the stuff I myself must do.

But can somebody please get a demo together with folks holding signs that say “IF WE WERE MUSLIMS WE’D CUT SERRANO’S HEAD OFF” “IF WE WERE MUSLIMS WE’D BURN THIS BUILDING DOWN”

That is what’s needed.

If we are to follow “cultural and moral relativism” wouldn’t it be our duty to RIOT and BURN crap down, because we gotta be ALL THE SAME? Right? right?

I ****** HATE this PC RELATIVISM and the cancer it represents!!

Of course the Christians won’t riot, because most all of the Christians are BETTER PEOPLE because their religion is not so “SWORD HEAVY and INSECURE”!!!!

Of course for all our trouble of being better citizens we get the short end of the stick and get demonized more than the other animals.....

.... Sigh....

If New Yorkers appreciate it then that’s where it ought to be. The ‘artist’ won a $15000 grant for it from the NEA. Tells me more about the NEA than it does the ‘artist’ that failed basic plumbing 101. I suppose it’s a consolation prize for the new protected class. I’m surprised it’s not hanging in the Oval Office by now.

"Piss Koran"

What if an "artist" announces very soon that on the opening day of the new Serrano exhibit, he will create "Piss Koran" on the sidewalk right outside of the museum?

Plenty of pre-publicity. Lots of photos of the separate dry jar, and the dry Koran, in advance. Really promote it. Youtube videos, etc.

Hold "Piss Christ" hostage, in effect.

What a mind-blowing quandry for the politically correct commisars!

What would happen?

What would the President say? The Secretary of State? The Mayor? American Muslim leaders? Foreign Muslim dictators?

If the police threaten to arrest the "Piss Koran" artist, announce ten other "Piss Korans" will be created in Zuccotti "Freedom Park" or somewhere else nearby.

Interesting opportunity to "compare and contrast," eh?

One set of rules for the Islamic Overlords, and another set for the dhimmi kufir infidels?
