OP., are you really commenting on the Piss Christ photo from more than a few years back?
Why should anyone condemn it? It was considered art and whether or not you personally like it makes no difference. Much art over the ages has been
offensive to some people no matter what. That this particular piece represented a Crucifix, (which a pretty barbaric icon if you stop to think about,
almost as bad as that ritual cannabalism you Christians set so much store by), submerged in urine is pretty tame by most standards.
I tell you what, when all of you angry religious people finally understand the great lessons of the teachers and prophets: end hunger, shelter every
child, show unconditional love to your enemies, then, and only then will the rest of us take you seriously. You can not pick and choose what parts of
your teachings you will follow, any teachings, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, or Pagan and then tell everyone else that we are doing it wrong or offending
you. You offend us with your hypocrisy.
