ΠΟΣΗ ΠΙΑ ΜΙΣΑΛΟΔΟΞΙΑ, ΠΟΣΟ ΑΚΟΜΑ ΜΙΣΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΠΑΘΟΣ ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΓΛΥΚΥΤΑΤΟΥ ΙΗΣΟΥ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΥ ΜΑΣ; ΠΟΣΗ ΔΙΑΣΤΡΟΦΗ & ΑΛΛΟΙΩΣΗ ΠΙΑ;
Έως πότε ΟΛΟ αυτό το ΑΙΣΧΟΣ θα καλύπτεται κάτω απο τον μανδύα της …»τέχνης»; Και έως πότε θα λιθοβολείται τόσο ΑΝΙΕΡΑ ο Χριστός, μέσω – δήθεν & τάχα! – της όποιας «τέχνης»;

First Piss Christ, Now Frog Christ. Where Did We Go Wrong?
CN Paul Bois
April 28, 2017
Submersing a crucifix in piss, painting the Virgin Mary from cow dung, and now showing Christ crucified as a frog all represent respectable works of art to the modern man.
From Philly Mag:
Last week, a new student show, “Jonathan’s Descent,” was hung inside the art gallery at Penn State Abington. The show is part of the school’s interdisciplinary “TransMedia Narratives” program, consisting of a series of artistic creations and a graphic novel that together tell a story.
The centerpiece of the show — or at least the one getting all of the attention — is Christus Ranae, Latin for “Frog Christ,” a seven-foot sculpture of a frog on a cross. The frog is made of clay, and the cross was devised from reclaimed railroad wood.
There’s also a barbed-wire crown of thorns around the frog’s head, and gold leaf was used to evoke blood dripping from the wounds caused by the crucifixion.
Obviously the art has offended some students and staffers, who view the frog as anti-Christian hate speech. A teach-in this past Tuesday allowed as many as 60 students and faculty members to gather in the gallery and voice their objections.
“This is anti-Christian mockery masquerading as art,” said Penn State Abington sociology prof Karen Bettez Halnon. “I’m a Catholic Christian, and I am extremely offended. This is anti-Christian hate speech. It’s offensive.”
“Penn State Abington prominently says and advertises and certifies itself as being ‘no place for hate,’” Halnon says. “Well, this is hateful. If we decided next month to hang up a swastika or hang a transsexual from a rope, then everybody would be crying about it. Or something from Islam.
This is all part of the persecution of Christians that is going on in this country right now.”
Accoriding to the artist, people have misconstrued his intent. H
“It’s been really surreal,” he tells Philly Mag. “A lot of people are questioning my intent. I myself profess to be a Christian, and I think the imagery is not offensive — because of my intent.”
Smith says his work supports a «larger narrative told by the entire show and the accompanying graphic novel, and his concern is that the people who are outraged by the sculpture aren’t taking it in its full context or taking the time to understand what it all means on a larger scale.»
Halnon says his intent has of little matter.
“It doesn’t matter what you intended,” Halnon insists. “The impact is the impact. It’s like with sexual harassment — although the gravity of this is so much greater. It doesn’t matter what your intent is when you sexually harass someone.
What matters is how they feel. Similarly, once you release art out into the public, you are responsible for it, and I’m not uneducated in terms of art. I’ve seen it all at the Louvre, Prado, Prague, Boston, London, Oxford and Vatican. But I know anti-Christian sentiment when I see it.»
