    It's an Illinois school. I'm pretty sure the funding is county and state:

    But jesus covered with feces IS art. And christians who complain are just neanderthals. Why are we bending over backwards for muslims? And persecuting christians?

    Exactly. Christians are told, if we don't like it, we can just look away. And this school exhibit is much less offensive than the Brooklyn Musuem exhibit. To be on par on the offense meter, this exhibit would have to have someone like Mohammad himself covered in feces.

    Of course then the both the artist and the Dean of the school would have to go in hiding, for fear of the fatwahs that would be called upon them.

    Hmmmmm, so are we to be "sensitive" to the wishes of the Muslim art critics or tell em to close their eyes orrrrrrrrrrr is this another instance where the libs want it both ways.

    OR are the libs more afraid of Muslim repercussions than of that the Chistians would offer?

    What ever happened to art that inspired emotions other than revulsion and anger? Does anybody make that kind of art anymore?
