Art college caves to Islam's demands: “Nude on prayer mat” offensive, “Piss Christ” A-OK!

Toronto’s Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) held a student art exhibit entitled “The Festival of the Body” which included a piece featuring the black outline of a nude woman on a green Islamic prayer mat.

Cue the predictable outrage from the usual suspects.

OCAD received a formal complaint from the school’s Muslim Student Association along with a manifesto of demands such as the immediate removal of the piece, an investigation into how it was ever approved, and whether the approval was done “out of ignorance or not.”

And of course the MSA wanted an official grovelling apology.

The school responded noting that all art should be provocative, and that many great works in the history of peoplekind were controversial, right?

Well, actually, no they didn’t. OCAD’s media and communications manager, said:

“We respect the Muslim Student Association has their opinions, and this is an important dialogue around this piece. It’s a matter of looking at both sides.”

Except it seems only the side demanding censorship, investigations and apologies, ever prevails.

Ironically, a mandatory art history course at OCAD includes an infamous piece called Immersion (a.k.a., "Piss Christ"), Andres Serrano’s photograph of a plastic cross submerged in a tank of the artist's urine.

How many non Muslims have had their concerns about profane art quashed? These cultural invaders are pushing and pushing like the camel with his nose inside the tent. When will we whack that nose and tell the camel to sleep outside? I fear we’ll be sleeping outside the tent soon. I suppose I’ll get in trouble for writing that now.

That’s why I like treating them like they treat us. They get so upset when you ignore them, disrespect and insult them. Like their taquiya. They can dish it out but they sure can’t take it. Good fun

Shouldn’t Mohammad Trudeau call a news conference and in his cuckold stuttering lisp announce this as a potential “hate crime” And apologize on behalf all “all” Canadians

Harley McCartney said in part, “I hope she remains anonymous.”

Me too, otherwise, she will be subjected to death threats and personal attacks. Members of her own family may also be a threat.

If Jesus is also a prophet my muslim theology, shouldn’t the piss christ be equally offensive? Why the dissonance? I guess like all things muslim some prophets are more equal than others.

Muslim Student Associations are a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood.

OCAD teaching cognitive dissonance!

OCAD, are a bunch of yellow-bellied appeasers. I think they are in the wrong business if they are offended by a piece of art. They are more afraid of being sued by a the human rights commission, or their building being burned to the ground, or worse, being murdered for slighting the devil that is. Muslim censorship rules the day once again. They might as well wave the white flag of surrender, though the colour white might set off another list of demands by those who wish to oppress individual expression. Let’s hope the artist remains anonymous for her own well being and saftey.
