Christian protesters in France destroy “Piss Christ” and other anti-christian art on display in a museum.

As inappropriate and disgusting I might consider this art, it is not good for westerners to lower themselves to Islamic standards.

    Lower themselves to Islamic standards? If they had the artist would be dead and the museum personnel too. Even so, Islamic standards are higher than that of a society that allows and even enjoys this kind of “art.”

  • Leroy – To me seems like the quote you chose contradicts the point you were attempting to make. Its not the worms fault that the corpse is decaying. Are you advocating trying to save the corpse from decay by getting rid of all of the worms? Shouldn’t we focus on the living and how to keep them from becoming corpses, or is it already too late? I see the artist worms as useful in that they help us see what is decaying so we can try to learn something or think for ourselves a bit.
