Artists mock Christian faith again Aussie News and Views
PRIME Minister John Howard is today leading a chorus of condemnation against the decision to include two entries in a prestigious art competition that ridicule the Christian faith.
A statue of the Virgin Mary shrouded by a Muslim burqa and a holographic image of Osama bin Laden that morphs into Jesus Christ when moved on an angle have sparked outrage from politicians and church leaders.
The "artworks" were submitted as entries for the Blake Prize - Australia's top religious art competition.
Yesterday, Mr Howard said the pieces were insulting and lacked any artistic merit.
"The choice of such artwork is gratuitously offensive to the religious beliefs of many Australians," he said.
