Obama Bows to Islam But Refuses to Apologize for “Pi$$ Christ” Art Project

All religions are not equal in the eyes of the Obama Administration.
One religion stands above all others.
Barack Obama will bow to Islam but refuses to apologize for “Pi$$ Christ” artwork.

FOX News radio reported:

Religious groups are blasting President Obama for not condemning am anti-Christian art display set to appear in New York City and one Republican lawmaker said he is â??fed up with the administrationâ??s double standard and religious hypocrisy.

â??Piss Christ,â?ť once branded as a â??deplorable, despicable display of vulgarity,â?ť will be displayed at the Edward Tyler Nahem Gallery in Manhattan on Thursday. The artwork features a â??photograph of the crucifix submerged in the artistâ??s urine.â?ť

The artwork debuted in 1989 and was funded through prize money provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. The art gallery hosting the retrospective salute to Andres Serrano is privately owned.

Religious groups and some lawmakers have already started sounding off â?? and making comparisons to the controversy over a recent anti-Muslim film. The low budget movie â??Innocence of Muslimsâ?ť sparked violent and deadly clashes across the globe.

It also brought strong rebukes, condemnations and apologies from President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a host of administration officials.

The administration tried to have the film removed from YouTube â?? but Google rebuffed their request. The State Dept. spent $70,000 on a Pakistani television advertisement rebuking the film. And the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff personally telephoned a Christian minister in Florida to ask him to withdraw his support of the film.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R, C-NY) wants to know why President Obama hasnâ??t denounced the exhibit and said heâ??s fed up with what he called the administrationâ??s â??religious hypocrisy.â?ť
