    My ilk? That's nice. I'll look into the "message" it wants to portray, but then again that doesn't invalidate anything I've said in my original post.

    Yes, your ilk. You and the overwhelming majority of christians out there are 20th century pop culture versions of the real thing. Arbitrarily picking and choosing which parts of the bible you'll follow and then complaining when you aren't taken seriously by others.

    I looked into a little bit, and apparently the idea behind this "art" is that some symbols become over commercialized or something to that effect. I do think it is rather disrespectful thing to do with a religious symbol regardless of the idea behind the art though. But the point is I'm not sure if his intention was offend people.

    Thanks for judging me considering you know everything about my Christian faith and how I try and live my life according to my Biblical beliefs. This thread isn't about me or "pop culture" Christians that you have an issue with.

    Anyways, back to the topic of the thread. No one should stop this art from being put on display, anyone (most likely conservatives) that do are hypocritical in their disliking of the Obama administrations apologetic nature for the film offensive to Muslims and requests to take it out of media. The Piss Christ should stay, the Muhammad movie should stay, and anyone that commits crimes in regards to their inability to control themselves or be civil when offended should be punished and be solely accountable for their own actions.

    Whatever. Been there/done that with this freak and his fascination with bodily fluids and just wish he weren't getting all this renewed attention.

    This was news eons ago; it's news now only to those who don't remember. Sure, it's offensive. That's the point. But who cares? Nobody died because of this "art" when it was so shocking, and I don't expect any big deal being made now. I mean, burn your flag and smear your dung and call it art. Whatever.

    I also don't expect a President to offer his or her opinion on art exhibits. The fact that the President had nothing to say speaks volumes, but if he was being authentic rather than calculated, that's all citizens can ask for, yes?

    But that's not the case.

    Personally I hate people who are too touchy about their religion.

    But at the same time I also don't see the point in making fun of someones religion just to be a dick either.

    I think it's one thing to make fun of something to be funny, another to be a jackass.
    It's not just religion that may cause somone to be "overly sensitive". Some people are that way about political ideology. In all fairness Jet, I've seen you get pissy over jokes about liberals. It's easy to sit back and laugh and tell others to lighten up when it's not you, isn't it?

    I had a feeling you'd have SOMETHING to say to me in this thread X.

    You'd have to point specifically as to which "joke" you're talking about.

    Because often times when far right conservatives make their "jokes" they're not funny.... like at all. And don't get on my ass about that statement I said far right, not run of the mill conservatives.

    Do you now? Which ones? And that's exactly the point of the artwork. You arbitrarily pick and choose what to believe in just like you've been taught by pop culture christianity. I'd be willing to bet you think homosexuality is an abomination but have no problem with eating shrimp. I bet you ignore the old testament when it suits you. All this is to say that you're a pop culture christian because what you practice and what has been practiced as christianity for the past 2000 years are two completely different things. You are a product of televangelism, megachurches and neo-protestants. You are a product of materialist sociology and HBO. If you don't want to hear that, it's fine with me but let's not sit here and pretend your version of christianity isn't a watered down version of what people have practiced for centuries.

    Well, I think because this just happened to turn into an international incident. I definitely do NOT think he should apologize for it, and the attackers should be rounded up and arrested. But I do not think it is that big of a deal that he said it had nothing to do with our government, considering a lot of those people may not realize that. If he had actually said "I'm sorry." That would be a different story IMO.
