    Bunker Hill Community College Showcases Painting of President Obama Crucified Like Jesus.

    I don't have a problem with this painting.
    I can't help but wonder what would happen if the picture was of Obama
    as the prophet Muhammad.

    Do you think they would display a picture of Obama as the prophet Muhammad?????

    There are quite a few people in this forum that had no problem with
    the Maplethorpe picture of crucifix submerged in a glass of the artist's urine.
    The same people were not too happy over the innocence of Muslims video.

    The arts part of my brain never developed properly ... the sports part squeezed it out.

    The painting actually sucks.....why would anyone want to look at it?

    The "artist" seems pretty optimistic about the future of America.....WOW!

    Read somewhere this morning that Herr Glenn Beck put an Obama bobblehead in a jar with Urine..

    Who cares, art is in the eye of the beholder.. art is art.

    The Obama piece wasn't meant as a slight to Jesus, IMO. It wasn't even comparing Obama to Jesus and his alleged suffereing. Judging from the other works, it's political commentary dripping with sarcasm. It says to me that the idea that neocons who hate the mulatto in the White House have and who keep sarcastically referring to him as the "messiah" and "savior" are all full of s#!t. The other paintings are also sarcastic political commentary, so that's why I get that impression. Really like the Statue of Liberty one.
