Flush the Q'uran, Get Arrested; "Piss" on Christ, Get Paid
August 5, 2007 - Here's a riddle, albeit a factual truth, for you: Where will flushing a Q'uran down the toilet at New York's Pace University land you?
What would this act be called?
A "hate crime" in which "Muslim students are impacted by the creation of what could be viewed as a hostile campus environment."
What could you look forward to if you were to place a Crucifix inside a glass cup, fill the cup to the top with your own urine, photograph it, and then give your brilliant creation the name, "Piss Christ"?
Are you ready for the "punchline"?
You'd be named the winner of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art's "Awards in the Visual Arts" competition.
What would THIS act be called?
That's not all. Your "art" would be funded by a $15,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.
Your tax dollars hard at work.
