    Controversial 'Piss Christ' art back in NY

    In recent days we have been witness to Obama's feckless, weak foreign policy in the Middle East, offering apology, after apology, including paying out some $70K for an ad to air in Pakistan, and their government still made Friday a holiday to protest, where 19 died...All this supposedly over a laughable movie, (Not really) and what is set to return just in time to offend Christians?

    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.

    Will we see Ms. Rice sent out to all 5 Sunday shows to apologize for that? How about Hillary, who is looking frightening lately BTW...? Will Obama make it to the Rose Garden to denounce Mr. Sorrano? Doubt it....

    Almost immediately after it was announced that “Piss Christ” would be making a surprise return to the Big Apple, Christian leaders and conservative lawmakers began accusing the Obama administration of religious hypocrisy, saying while the White House has been silent on the anti-Christian photograph, it has constantly and strongly condemned the low-budget anti-Muslim YouTube clip “Innocence of Muslims” that offended people of the Islamic faith and supposedly sparked unrest in the Middle East.
    “The Obama administration’s hypocrisy and utter lack of respect for the religious beliefs of Americans has reached an all-time high,” Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.)told Fox News. “I call on President Obama to stand up for America’s values and beliefs and denounce the ‘Piss Christ’ that has offended Christians at home and abroad.”

    Well don't hold your breath Rep. Grimm....Obama won't do that, he has no respect for religious values, or what offends Christians in this country. He only made a big deal over this stupid movie because it is a good distraction of his failed foreign policy of weakness.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Obviously Christians, if they don't wish to see this kind of thing anymore, should simply riot and kill people since apparently acting like complete savages and in an entirely illogical manner is justification for denying other people freedom of speech.

    Either that or live reeeeeeaaaallllly far away. If it's too close to home, liberals think Christians should just "get over it."

    Where is the outrage from the Obama Administration? Nowhere.


    Only when radical Islam is offended comes the flood of apologies. That's Obama's way, but everybody knows that by now, so it's no surprise really.

    Yea, This situation is just fail all around for Obama and liberals... if they just admit that they are wrong it might just save them some credibility if they had any in the first place.

    I just do not understand this crap.

    Honestly, only comes from people who have a beef with Muslims.

    Certainly J-mac and you do.

    How the hell is it an apology, for the government to say "Hey We don't endorse a Islam being mocked in this manner" because the United States has a great deal more to gain by saying such a thing than they have to gain from ignorant islamophobes who associate the few violent muslims with the rest of them.

    That's then taken by far right wingers as "Apologizing to terrorists" when he's turning them into chicken Tika using drones every other week.

    I don't even know what universe you people live in... honestly.

    This isn't about apologies, this is about you being pissed off that there aren't more people sticking it to Islam because you have a problem with it, Obama administration in particular.

    "The work has been attacked by vandals in Australia and Sweden. And last year a hammer-wielding lay critic in France permanently damaged one of the 10 existing prints, perhaps in ways that only deepened its commentary on bodily suffering. (”It looked like they’d attacked Christ,” Mr. Serrano told The Post. “The marks were all around the face.”).

    People are outraged as perhaps they should be, but, the reactions have been within somewhat acceptable parameters, barring property damage, in a civilized society. No one died as a result.


    "French lawyer for the Collection Lambert, Agnes Tricoire shows 'Immersion Piss Christ', a controversial piece of art by US artist Andres Serrano partially destroyed by catholic activists, on July 19, 2012 in Avignon southern France. The “Piss Christ”, from the contemporary art collection of the Lambert foundation, was created in 1987 and represents a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine. French criminal court cancelled the summons of the four defendants who vandalized two art works by Andres Serrano"

    The same Obama administration which has killed both innocent Muslims and Muslim terrorists is being taken to task for avoiding a foreign policy nightmare with the very people who are already pissed about us killing both them AND the terrorists. Let partisanship rule the day.
