While I’m generally opposed to being needlessly insulting to religious people, I, never the less, support criticism of religion. And one of the ways this can be done, and sometimes to even greater effect than any rational argument, is via art.
Our modern culture is so centered around the visual with TV, Movies and now the Internet, its no surprise that images can be used to great effect, to enlighten and offend.
At a time when the clergy are being held to account for various lustful misdeeds, I think its very appropriate to remind people that they are human, and as such should be subject to the same laws as other human beings. We see corruption in government, big business, and in the church, and all should be held accountable, to the same human laws.
Priests and Nuns are human and therefore sexual beings, and as such we shouldn’t pretend they are not(nor should the church, but silly rules about celibacy is another issue) and let them get away with criminal activities.
Is it blasphemy, sure. Do artists have a right to do it, yessir. Do people who are offended have a right to protest and boycott, absolutely. Criticism should always be a two way street.
