Where's the outrage?

Homosexuals Mock ‘Last Supper’ With Sex-Toys, from Stop the ACLU:

I wonder if the media will cover this like it did the Mohammed cartoons! I doubt it, unless you think Christians will hit the streets in riots burning everything in site.
Organizers of San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair — sponsored by Miller Brewing Co. — have portrayed Christ and his disciples as half-naked homosexual sadomasochists in the event’s promotional advertisement, and the conservative group Concerned Women for America is complaining about the hypocrisy of it.

“The bread and wine representing Christ’s broken body and lifegiving blood are replaced with sadomasochistic sex toys in this twisted version of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper,” CWA said on its Web site.

“‘Gay’ activists disingenuously call Christians ‘haters’ and ‘homophobes’ for honoring the Bible, but then lash out in this hateful manner toward the very people they accuse,” said said Matt Barber, CWA’s policy director for cultural issues.

“In their version of The Last Supper, Christ, Who gave His life for our sins, is despicably replaced by sin itself as the object of worship.”

CWA is calling on California politicians — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sens. Feinstein and Boxer among them — to “publicly condemn this unprovoked attack against Christ and His followers.

“We further challenge the media to cover this affront to Christianity with the same vigor as recent stories about cartoon depictions of Mohammed and other items offensive to the Muslim community,” CWA said.

I think the only thing shocking is that groups keep thinking it is soooo artsy to mock Christ, yet culturally insensitive to mock Islam.

    You said it.

    That they call it "art" too, is a sick mockery of the word.

  2. How exactly is this "mocking" Christianity?

    This is a parody of a PAINTING. Last I checked da Vinci wasn't a prophet or an apostle. In fact, he was gay. His artwork is not part of the Christian canon. Furthermore, his painting has been parodied MANY TIMES in popular culture (see here: http://slog.thestranger.com/2007/09/other_last_suppers_wheres_the_outrage), so when you choose to get selectively outraged about only THIS parody, and to blame it on the gays, you betray your own bias.

    I find the image beautiful. You don't. That's true of ALL art. Some like it, some don't. End of story. There is no controversy here.

    P.S. The street fair is not a "gay" event. It is a BDSM event, and participation runs about 40 percent straight, 60 percent gay. Plus, in the image, you will notice that there are 11 men and 3 women -- and the women are grouped with men, not with each other, i.e. the image itself runs proportionally much like the fest, demographically speaking. So, once again, when you focus on "the gays," you betray your bias.
