The Best in Offensive Jesus Art

Andres Serrano’s Piss Christ got attacked yet again last weekend, as offended Catholic extremists stormed the Avignon museum and destroyed the photographic image of a plastic crucifix in a glass of the artist’s urine… by beating Jesus’s head with a hammer. Hasn’t the poor chap been through enough? On the heels of this most recent art attack, let’s take a look at some of this Christerrific art that raised eyebrows and stirred up angry hoopla.

Andres Serrano said “I have always felt that my work is religious, not sacrilegious,” and even Catholic nun/art critic Sister Wendy agrees, calling the work “inspiring” and “admonitory.” Perhaps the most ironic element of this latest religiously-motivated vandalism is the glass cracking in a halo.
