Commentary: Art’s Number One Controversy

Over a year ago, the infamous Andres Serrano photo Piss Christ  got the blasphemy treatment.

In this case the forces of outraged vandalism were Christians, not Islamists. But apparently some Christians have noticed how the Muslim threats of violence against any perceived slight makes everyone else act properly submissive to their demands.

The establishment art world holds double standards on the treatment of organized religions. Elitist artists congratulate themselves for deriding the beliefs of so-called narrow minded Christians, while turning a blind eye to the aggressive homophobia, repression and intolerance of the militant Islamic world.

Why?

Fear. These artistic poseurs are knuckling under to bullies, all the while claiming to be iconoclastic champions of free expression. The hypocrisy is disgraceful.
