But surely bloodthirsty Christian mobs will set buildings ablaze, murder diplomats and have their children call for the beheading of all those who insult Christ, won’t they?
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 extra security be enough to calm the Christian mobs? Quick, somebody get President Obama to “reject the denigration of religious beliefs.”
Get the Pentagon to call supporters of “Piss Christ” and ask them to hush up. Ask the White House to “question the judgment” of the gallery owner. Make the Obama administration ask for the removal of the art before someone gets hurt! Send the feds after artist Andres Serrano!
Naturally, the White house is suddenly shy about speaking out against offensive art and religious intolerance.
Rep. Michael Grimm (R, C-NY) wants to know why President Obama hasn’t denounced the exhibit and said he’s fed up with what he called the administration’s “religious hypocrisy.”
“The Obama administration’s hypocrisy and utter lack of respect for the religious beliefs of Americans has reached an all-time high,” Grimm 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.”
Would President Obama and his administration clam up if this were to happen?
Last week Slate’s William Saletan claimed Romney betrayed free speech by calling out the Obama administration’s reprehensible YouTube video apologitis. When pressed by Ace of Spades, he suggested “Piss Christ” should also be condemned.
We eagerly await his column pressing President Obama to slam Andres Serrano’s “repehrensible” and intolerant art.
