Thank you, Fox News, for bringing your favorite urine-soaked hobby horse — Andrew Serrano’s ‘Piss Christ’ — into yet another election cycle. I was beginning to suspect you were losing your touch.
Religious groups are blasting President Obama for not condemning am anti-Christian art display set to appear in New York City and one Republican lawmaker said he is “fed up with the administration’s religious hypocrisy.
There are only two possible reasons that the President would not take time to condemn a piece of art made in 1987:
1. He’s anti-Jesus
2. He’s pro-piss
If my math is correct, this marks the seventh presidential campaign in which Piss Christ has put in an appearance. The current tempest raises the question, when was the last time Barack Obama condemned Robert Mapplethorpe?
It’s ironic that the wingnuts are raising the Piss Christ flag specifically in response to the Innocence of Muslims film, since Piss Christ is a perfect example of the kind of blasphemous art that is not permitted in theocracies.
