A Colorado woman angered by a painting depicting Jesus receiving oral sex from another man was arrested Wednesday when she took a crowbar to the piece of art and shredded the lithograph.
It really is a bit unbecoming when we want to ram down people's throats what for some is sacrilegious. It is safe to say that it is questionable for some us even.
It is one thing to bring and raise awareness to various of our issues this Hemispherewide, and it is entirely another to shock people into accepting our irreverence. We might think the work of art in question to be an allegory to the rampant hypocrisy we see and hear everyday in our media.
Most people in the Western Hemisphere do believe Jesus is their "Lord" and it will be centuries until they accept "vanguardism" in art. It behooves us to think twice before we set out attacking people ideologically if we want to have them on our side to help us advance our agenda.
It is imperative that we demonstrate we are tolerant to show them we think with our hearts and minds instead of (and not because of!) our lower abdomens.
P.S.: (Added later) On a lighter note, one might think it must've been quite a scene to watch the Colorado woman hell-bent on destroying the offending work of art. Only after reading Stan's comment (see below), did we realize that, for some of you in the U.S.A., there's freedom of expression enshrined in your consitution and you can "say" virtually anything you want without fear or favor. Some can't. Makes it even more interesting.
