FOX: Catholics Outraged Over Paintings of 'Virgin Mary' Holding Weapons

  1. Man, Fox REALLY wishes that Catholics were as violent and angry as Muslims.  They'd love to be the PR head of the Catholic Fascist Front.  Darn it, too bad American Catholics are too reasonable for that...  I guess it's back to the Evngelical Christians and Zionist Jews for now.  Oh, and the Mormons.  Can't forget the Mormons.

  3. Why would Fox have a problem with this? They promote religion and they promote wars...just as many many Catholics do as well and have done throughout history.
    Also, it could be seen symbolically instead...the fight for your faith or whatever..

  5. First, FOX is interested only in trying to rouse some rabble. There doesn't seem to be enough brainpower among the lot of them to come up with something meaningful.

    Second, thanks for the chuckle rant above. Incoherent at best.

  7. I do not think she would put the pictures of Muhammed either.

    So Catholics should be proud they respect other people opinions.

    I also dont get this whole idea of Catholics being offended by a picture of Marry with guns when they put so many bloody pictures and statues of their prophet in the most humiliatinig ways. Maybe she was just trying to protect her baby ;)

  8. This is interesting. They seem to conflate the two questions of "is it ethically ok to display artwork that may deeply offend some people in the community" and "is it legal to do so".

    They refer to the "free speech argument" as if it's being used to justify the ethics question, because they act like it's insufficient. I surely hope they aren't saying that it should be illegal to display the artwork. But now that I think about it, they really are that dumb.

    It seems the the woman running the exhibit didn't even try to defend herself. She just seemed to vaguely imply that she thought the artist didn't intend to be offensive, therefore it's all good. She never acknowledged that lots of people would be offended, and that foreseeing the controversy is unavoidable. She comes across as disengenious to me.

    Seems we let it go unchallenged the cultural deference to religion. She should have demolished the rule that "if something offends religious people it should not be done." Conservatives always rail against "political correctness", which they understand to be "if something offends liberals/minorities, it should not be done." It shouldn't be too hard to draw an analogy, and tweak whatever justification they use for being "politically incorrect". Wouldn't that resonate with the Fox audience?

  9. Good art often provokes controversy, but provoking controversy doesn't guarantee good art.  On this note, it would be far more interesting to see her holding a can of Campbell's soup (though probably less controversial).

  16. with all the bs about first amendment right...why did the owner of the gallery became numb
    when asked if she would give the same gallery space to someone painting mohammed with guns and grenades in his hands?   She ...refrain from saying anything...what a bunch of assholes these defenders of right to speech...as an atheist i would like to see stand up for real for their belief  and  not be selective ...in their treatmen of other people's belief...this feear of attacking the idiocies of the islamic religion the same way as we attack biblical fairy tales...only makes them more bold in their fanaticism and prejudice.

  17. This is great! I'm glad ppl got offended. Should have had a painting of the "holy mother" cradling a toilet bowl eating feces. I bet that would really get them going.

    So, Steve, the male anchor, sees Mary as a terrorist when she holds weapons.

    Just as Steve said it was her opinion when Ashley Griffith, the art gallery owner said it the virgin Mary did not look like a terrorist, it is also Steve's opinion when he says Mary DOES look like a terrorist. Which is interesting on MANY levels.

    1) If holding a weapon is enough to give Steve the impression of terrorism, does he feel that way about Dick Cheney and his rifle? (Photo:http://www.foxnews.com/images/237383/0_61_cheney_gun.jpg  ;) Or our brave soldiers fighting in the war? (Photo:http://i.telegraph.co.uk/telegraph/multimedia/archive/01419/guns_1419853c.jpg) What about Charlton Heston, former head of the NRA? Does he look like a terrorist (Photo: http://troglopundit.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/charlton-heston-1.jpg  ;)   What about Sara Palin, does she look like a terrorist with her gun?  (Photo:http://www.truthdig.com/images/eartothegrounduploads/palin_gun_kuwait3.jpg) Or any of the red neck fans of the show who want to go hunting? (Photo: http://www.faqs.org/photo-dict/photofiles/list/1584/2119hunter.jpg  ;)

    2) The guns are pink. The grenade is gold. These comes off to me (and of course this is now my own opinion) as toy guns, and a gold decoration for a chain or belt buckle. None of the weapons look the slightest bit real, let alone like what a terrorist would use.

    If I were Ashley, I would have responded to Steve "Yes, me not seeing her as a terrorist is my opinion, just like you seeing her as a terrorist is YOUR opinion. But really, does a simple weapon really justify the leap to terrorist? It's like if I said your female co-host was good looking because she was on TV. Obviously, that is a RIDICULOUS conclusion, as she's fugly beyond all belief."

  20. Why didn't they get the artist instead... It seems to me as if they [Fox] just wanted a scapegoat to rip on.
