'PISS CHRIST' Coming to New York City: Catholic League's Bill Donohue to Lead Protest Comments

Serrano said that "Piss Christ" was "meant to question the whole notion of what is acceptable and unacceptable." There is not much to question: decent people know it is unacceptable. But in elite cultural circles, anti-Christian art is not only acceptable, it is laudatory. Just don't offend Muslims. Continue Reading

    DLL, I remember well when this sick blasphemous photo came out in the early 90's. If I read correctly, the sick freak who did this photo died of AID's. I do remember his reason for why he did what he did. He was a militant sick homosexual activist who hated Christ and Christianity in general because he saw that Christ as anti-gay. It was a pure act of hate. He wasn't joking. You are right. It takes a sick twisted individual to embrace such a thing.

    Nicholas Scardino: I Feel your plight. Everyone at one time or another has been there by the time you reach my age. Not knowing the intimates of your burden, I offer two suggestions:
    "Let Go and Let God", or, visit a priest. Of course I am assuming you have already exhausted yourself with prayer, and perhaps a close confidant. Prayerful Blessings...

    The creator of " Piss Christ" will have no second thought to put a picture of his parents in cow-dung and have it displayed because he has no respect for the feeling of others especially Christians who revere Christ as their God.
    To the citizens of the country that allow such exhibition to be displayed I pray that chastisement of God will come down upon them

    I liked Josh's comment about forgiveness. It's important to remeber to forgive our afflictors so we aren't burdened by their evil. Also the greater potential for love makes it easier to teach and overcome. I guess my question is when do you pray to god to expell these people from your life after you can no longer except their burdens?

    DLL, Good perceptions. I especially liked: "We are saved by the Incarnate and Holy God Man". Speaking about the: "Holy Sacrifice of the Lamb". And, when one chooses to degrade, they are really degrading themselves. This bit of wisdom, is good for Everyone, no matter what the topic or subject is. One's thoughts, words, or deeds in fact, become counter productive as DLL said. One does not become closer to the Lamb...Indeed, they are farther apart! DLL's message is a good read. Take it to heart. Prayerful Blessings...

    Judy: Christ the only pure and perfect one,wholly,Holy,acceptable to God exclusively,died for all,so all couldn't die to sin. We are saved by the Incarnate and Holy God Man. The great and Holy Sacrifice is one who lived among us as,pure and Holy,un affected by the sin of our world,so that He is referred to as the perfect and acceptable Holy Sacrificial Lamb of God. All that choose to try to live a Christlike existence are saving the world. Those that do not choose to do so do it all to their very own degradadation,as they when they choose to offend God,they are most offensive to themselves,as this action is counterproductive. Vance and Karl this artists head is in the stockade for the rest of his life and he will always be the village idiot for his so called artistic accomplishment. He is a goof that laughes at a society,that would embrace his stupid art. Sure he gets publicity for his art. The people that embrace it and overpay for obtaining it are the real pure honest jokes. The art proves just how dumb our so called western culture is and as one of sophistication is,NOT! Crude is crude and those that embrace what is crude,are simply crude themselves. This art has through the creators own admission of it,pushes indecency to to a peculiar level of an acceptablity,therefore making the piece itself a decently formidable and acceptable art form. I think the artist actually thinks this is poppycock,and I agree. The difference is that he is laughing at a silly society that accepts it,as he is one who is gladly laughing himself all the way to his bank. The sad thing is that people that won't take God seriously,embrace and take a guy like this art seriously. They sadly have chosen to worship a toad instead. That is what hell must be like. No God just a bunch of toads! A toadstool is the throne for everlasting fools.

    Vance, I called you a liar because after being told repeatedly that I'm neither an Obama supporter nor a Democrat, you insist on calling me those things... and it's a lie. And since YOU are the one engaging in false accsation and namecalling, may we all presume you're a "liberal democrat?"
    Now, regarding what I was actually talking about, do you think I'm wrong based on the result? Lots of attention WAS, in fact, drawn to this atrocious "art," and to Mr. Donohue. Was something else achieved? Did we stop it? Was funding cut? no... we provided them with free advertizing, nothing more.
    Tell me where I'm wrong. See if you can do it without another personal attack on me.

    I pray that whatever words and actions you bring to the protest, above all it is that of forgiveness, for the greater the evil the greater the potential for love.

    God bless
