After two weeks and still waiting on Christians to riot in the streets from a Malaysian newspaper’s front-page depiction of Jesus smoking a cigarette, an Australian art piece may finally push Christians over the edge.
Hundred of thousands of Christians protest Osama bin Laden as Jesus ‘art’
SARCASM ALERT: Make-up headline shows contrasting belief systems.
I have to admit, this one bothers me a bit. I’m not surprised or shocked, just amazed at this artist’s ignorance. But again, as I’ve stated before, Jesus was beaten severely and killed some nearly 2,000 years ago, why should it be any different now?
From The Washington Times:
SYDNEY, Australia — Down Under has been thrown for a loop with a small art exhibition in which two Australian artists depict Christian religious icons with Islamic overtones, including one image portraying Osama bin Laden as Jesus Christ.
The “lenticular image” piece, titled “Bearded Orientals: Making the Empire Cross,” appears to be a beatific portrait of Christ, but if viewers move a few feet to one side, the image morphs into the face of bin Laden, mastermind of the September 11 attacks against the United States.
The mass murderer is shown in the same saintly pose as Jesus; eyes lifted toward the heavens, face aglow, a small halo above his head.
