    "It also marks a return to an old standoff between Serrano and the religious right that dates back more than 20 years, to Reagan-era Republicanism in the US."

    The argument in the United States wasn't so much about the total garbage Serrano produces that stupid tasteless liberal hacks call "art", but over the fact that the American taxpayer was being robbed to provide funding for that ****.

    Take the American taxpayer out of loop, remove federal tax funding for art museums (not allowed under the Tenth Amendment), and the furor in the US would never have gotten past the Rubber-Ducky-Making-Bubbles-In-The-Bathtub stage.

    That the intolerance of France is being highlighted in the aftermath of their freedom ending ban on burkas and religious iconographic adornment is must a media quirk.

    There's no comparison to the United States, as must be obvious becuase Serrano's bull**** work wasn't harmed in the United States.

    Also, since Piss Christ is a PHOTOGRAPH, not only it is possble to print an identical copy up tomorrow, it can be spammed on-line to all the Frenchmen who damaged the original peice of crap.

    Bad taste is immortal.

    It's crap. Put a koran in there and let's just see how extreme the response will be.

    Compare the individual and/or group population to the total number of Christians in the area and compare the amount of public support v. public condemnation.
    Make an essential third comparison. Count the bodies, count the heads, count how many are still attached to bodies still walking around, and then discuss extremism with people who object to burning a koran.

    Where are Christian protesters yelling, "Death to France"? The sole purpose of this thread is to make christians seems as bad as muslims.

    ew - they used hammers to break it. NASTY - by now it's probably toxic rivaling the worst of all acids. That's just gross - I guess rage knows no common sense, hunh? I hope they took showers after.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    You can't yell fire in a crowded thater because it could cause injury or death.

    But it's ok to purposefully cause outrage towards a fine religion.

    I certainly do hope they had the much esteemed artwork insured.

    The damages might run into the pennies.
