    Re: Controversial 'Piss Christ' art back in NY

    I honestly dont know what world some posters on here live on!
    Do you honestly expect the American gov to say " yeh sorry but we defend our free speech so the rest of you can jog on"?.
    Its a international incident and America has many interests in the ME both financial and military, you honestly want them to throw that away to defend some guys moronic video? The American gov spoke out against the attacks and have vowed to bring those responsible to justice while at the same time have distanced themselves from the video. Would you prefer they took credit for the video?

    No, silly you to think it was a Muslim name to begin with. There are many non-Muslims who have the name Hussein in the Middle East. Ever gone to Lebanon? Actually, don't answer that. I doubt you even know any Arabs to begin with.

    So - if I can have this false assumption (because obviously I developed and opinion about it a long time ago and have never read a single article since then on the subject) then just how many other people are like me - stupid and thinking it's actually the jar of piss?

    I bet you I'm not the only one.

    But now I know - now my educationed is rounded out quite nicely.
    It's okay. Most people in non artist circles tend to think it's literally a statue of Christ in a jar of piss at the exhibit. I seriously doubt that the artist took the picture of Christ in an actual jar containing piss. He probably used water with some food colouring. Bodily fluids/body parts don't really lend themselves well to art exhibits unless highly processed or faked and they're just unnecessarily messy for a photograph.

    He was not. Like him hate him who cares, but, get the facts right.

    "The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama writes:

    I was not raised in a religious household. For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness. However, in her mind, a working knowledge of the world's great religions was a necessary part of any well-rounded education. In our household the Bible, the Koran, and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology.

    On Easter or Christmas Day my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.In sum, my mother viewed religion through the eyes of the anthropologist; it was a phenomenon to be treated with a suitable respect, but with a suitable detachment as well."

    "As a child in Indonesia, Obama studied for two years at one Muslim school and then two years at a Catholic school. In both places he experienced religious indoctrination, but in neither case did the indoctrination take hold: during Quranic studies he made faces and during Catholic prayers he would look around the room. Eventually, Barack Obama abandoned this non-conformism and skepticism to be baptized as an adult in the Trinity United Church of Christ."

    To the bolded: Yes. I expect him to say that. I'm sorry, but their getting their panties in a wad over something that someone here does, as a private citizen, that they dont like, is infantile behavior, and we owe them no explanations.

    yeh and I guess the massive troop surge in Afghan, increase of drone strikes and the death of Bin Laden was all part of his evil plan.
