Why Is A 'Piss Christ' Okay - But A 'Piss Muhammed' Is 'Too Offensive To Muslims' To Display ?Topics: Dhimmitude
Alternative title - "On More Outrage From The Religion Of Perpetual Outrage"
The secular, left-wing, anti-Christian media, academia, and the art world can "piss on Christ" any damned time they want to, but should anyone remotely joke about Muhammed, Islam, and its association with terrorism and violent jihad, and the Muslim world goes absolutely nuts! In fact, CAIR followers of the religion of perpetual outrage even express outrage over an ad campaign by a car dealership, that pokes fun at terrorism (although it does call attention to Muslims' tendency to refuse to assimilate into American life, putting the ummah before American citizenship).
Why is that so? Why is the image on the left considered "art", but the image on the left "offensive to Muslim sensitivities"? Why in the hell should we care? Do we or do we not still have free speech in America?

From our previous post we know that:
... the Council on American-Islamic Relations vehemently objected to the airing of the Ad. Asma Mobin-Uddin, president of the Columbus chapter of C.A.I.R., said she was concerned the ad's tone and imagery are "mocking and disrespectful to many different areas. One is Islamic faith and Islamic culture." She added "I don't think it's appropriate when it causes real pain. It exploits or promotes misunderstanding in terms already misunderstood or misused."Well, if a simple ad campaign from a car dealership that mocks the Islamic terrorists has CAIR going ape (no pun intended):
... the Council on American-Islamic Relations vehemently objected to the airing of the Ad. Asma Mobin-Uddin, president of the Columbus chapter of C.A.I.R., said she was concerned the ad's tone and imagery are "mocking and disrespectful to many different areas, and one is "the Islamic faith and Islamic culture," and inappropriate "when it causes real pain" (what pain?), and exploits or promotes misunderstanding in terms already misunderstood or misused (blatently not the case - CAIR wants us to believe Islamic extremism and terrorism are not associated with interpretations from the Koran???)... then why is putting a crucifix in a bottle of blood and urine laughed at by the media and the secular public, and called "art", with total disregard to the "real pain" and "mocking and disrespectful to many different areas, such as "the Christian faith and Christian culture," not considered equally offensive to Christians, and banned?
Because of something called free speech guaranteed all of us in the Constitution of the United States of America. CAIR and many Muslims that support them do not agree with this when it conflicts with Islamic law.
"Piss Christ" and the Virgin Mary being covered in elephant dung, and a plethura of other blasphemies that the Christian Church endures, are just as painful to Christians as some of the things that Muslims find offensive. However, so many Muslims, especially those at CAIR, find so damned much to be outraged about and find to be offensive, that we have to ask ourselves are they acting on an agenda to Islamicize America, or are they truly offended, or both. In either case, it doesn't matter. In a free and democratic sociey, Islam deserves no special treatment, it is no different than any other religion, and it certainly deserves no special protections from criticism. If CAIR and its supporters spent half the time condemning violent jihad, violence against other religions, terrorism, intolerance of non-Muslims in Muslim countries, and spreading Islam by the sword - as they did condemning and blaming everyone else for violations of "Muslim sensitivities", we'd have a hell of a lot less problems with terrorism in this world today.
You will find many more "Piss-Muhammed" - type images here...
