    There are a lot of people who were both offended by the "art" and also enraged that the NEA funded it.

    I did not refer to liberals.

    What you response has to do with anything I actually said is beyond me.

    Your whole post was about how American Liberals were hypocrites for applying a different standard here. All in all, they're not the ones saying this film should be banned. A few of them yes, but probably the same percentage of Conservatives that believe that Obama was born in Africa.

    yes, and your every reference to Christians (and Jews) is just dripping with contempt.

    For starters, though, it was destroyed by one Christian, not "Christians", and Christians everywhere did not go on violent rampages over it. You are not here for an honest purpose, though, so I'm sure this simple acknowledgement of fact would compromise your agenda here.

    One has nothing to do with the other. Congress made a law regarding a the National Endowment on the Arts the US Supreme Court ruled that it was constitutional. That ruling was in 1998. Why on earth would Obama or any president comment on this in his official capacity?

    Sharia law is not the law of the land in the US so the answer is no.

    "Jesus is in the piss because of you, Christian" does not make it better or any less offensive.
    I wasn't aware that someone made it sound like a compliment. It's certainly not a compliment. It is an ignorant thing to do though, but I try to not let ignoramuses bother me . . . too much anyway.

    You are one sick puppy.......

    The exihibit was attacked in several European cities and in Australia.

    Doesn't bother me.. I wouldn't waste six seconds on such trash that passes for art.

    I think people need to stop dragging their politics in to this. Even though its presidential election season, not EVERYTHING is about politics.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    That's what a lot of people don't seem to understand.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
