    Sharp eye. In the public outrage, very little. In the actual upholding of the state action by the (conservative) Supreme Court as not violating his 1A rights, considerably.

    Although, as the liberal side agreed, that argument was pretty comically farcical to me. All of them, iirc, agreed that the school could exercise discretion in maintaining order (the liberals said that an actual showing of interference with the educational process or retention of administrative order was, however, required - while the conservatives more or less said that minors don't get rigid free speech rights), but only the conservatives actually made the argument that prohibiting endorsement of drug use (by millennia-dead religious figures?) was the school's primary interest.

    Serrano is or at least was Catholic at the time he made "Piss Christ."

    Probably best not to misspell words when calling others morons.

    To be fair I think that was at a museum while this was up at a university so I think its a little different. If this was moved to a museum it would probably have a better shot at staying up.

    Forgot about that part.

    Maybe I should watch the movie now that I've forgotten a lot of the plot details from the book.

    I didn't say otherwise. Some people like offending their coreligionists, that doesn't necessarily lend it more merit.

    Don't you think some art is appropriate for art galleries but not necessarily universities? I would say so and I think both this boobie carpet and the piss Christ fall in that category.

    That also wasn't his intent ironically. His goal was to show how Christians/Catholics themselves are defiling Christ. Hence the piss.

    Sure as long as it's even across the board.

    How do you think that's going to happen, so where is the line.

    I think that's an admirable message but I still feel there is a way to aesthetically articulate that idea without recourse to such crude measures.
    Well these two cases aren't identical so its hard to know if its even or not. Most campuses have student organizations for the major religions so presumably most religiously sensitive art would face some resistance.

    She should have drawn a nude woman spreading her ass and showing her butthole. That is what I consider art.

    I don't agree with censorship personally and that's whether or not I agree with the message.

    It not the people who will complain with words that they are worried about. Muslims take offense to artistic expression / media a tad differently than Christians.

    Publish a picture of jesus getting ass fucked by Santa -- then publish one of your vision of Mohammad, and then document the types of backlash you receive.

    This is the same school had a playing of Corpus Christi -- they are not worried about offending a religious group, they are worried about possible severe backlash from a specific group

    I'm not following you. Does Dunham's father have a female butthole fetish?

    Pretty sure it's her dad that does. Rogan talked about it one time with Crowder on his podcast.
