    Actually, it probably has added value now. I heard they opened back up and are displaying the "damaged" art.

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

    Throw the snot nosed "artist" in a jail. In a torture chamber,
    It depends on your interpretation of the piece. I don't think it was necessarily meant to be disparaging towards Christianity, but to rather make a commentary on how people have treated Jesus and Christianity as a whole over the years.

    Bring pissed on is the ultimate humiliation for a man. I'd have to see his overall artistc kitsch, It's probably integrally spurious.

    Andres Serrano's Piss Christ destroyed by Christian protesters | World news | The Guardian

    I think there should be a line in the sand the art world would not allow to be crossed.

    This was never art it could be a protest or insult.

    I don't believe there was an artist involved, just an idiot trying to get attention when there is no talent involved at all.

    Of course, the title of the "work" might give it away, what it is.

    IIRC, there was also some blood in there. That's what makes it kind of orange.

    I wrote this about the piece a while back:

    I wasn't trying to offend you, I was wondering if that was the one you were talking about, and thought it would be easier to post it instead of trying to explain it.

    Anyways, the fact that you're offended by that is the entire point of the work. Serrano always juxtaposes the beautiful with the repulsive/taboo. His point is that there is beauty even in the most ugly things, and that if you look beyond your boundaries you can see that. You're so bound up in your own limitations that you are unable to appreciate that photo for what it is.

    The best part about Serrano's art is that it challenges you to redefine how you think, and that usually involves people either opening up their minds and accepting the piece for what it is, showing their openness to grow, or people get all upset and offended, exposing their narrowmindedness.

    I actually think that picture is beautiful.

    IMO it's even better now with the damage, it adds to the meaning of the piece more than anything Serrano could have done.

    The wonderful thing about art is that is is subjective and open to interpretation. Hell I love what some deem "death" art and what some have tagged as "torture" art, bdsm art, etc. Art is simply that: art.

    I couldn't agree more. Art is supposed to evoke a reaction, even if that reaction is disgust.
