Serrano’s “P*** Christ” Protested in NYC: insult Jesus, but not Muhammad

Serrano blasphemy protest

Members of the American TFP and America Needs Fatima prayed the Rosary and offered public reparation and protest against the “P*** Christ” blasphemy by Andres Serrano in front of the Edward Tyler Nahem Art Gallery on 57th Street in New York City on September 27.

Serrano blasphemy protest

The offensive exhibit shows a crucifix immersed inside a jar of urine. “It’s not art, but blasphemy,” said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. “It’s a symptom of out culture’s spiritual rot and it's shameful that world leaders issue verbose statements in defense of Muhammad, while remaining silent about this crude insult against the Sacred Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, the offensive piece received $15,000 from the National Endowment of the Arts, which includes tax payer dollars. How is that for a double standard?”

Although the protest could not have been more visible and vocal, the Huffington Post claimed that “no one from the right [was] in sight.”

Because of the scaffolding on the sidewalk of the gallery, some of the protesters stood across the street while others placed themselves directly in front of the establishment in peaceful protest, displaying signs, banners and praying the rosary. The signage proclaimed a common conviction among those present: Catholics must console Our Lord for such a terrible insult and make reparation.

Serrano blasphemy protest

“Why is the Catholic Church always singled out for attack?” asked a police officer who monitored the protest. “It’s outrageous,” he said. Similarly, most of the passersby were sympathetic with the protest and disgusted by the “artwork.”

May the Blessed Virgin Mary hear our prayers and listen to our acts of reparation and intercede with Her Divine Son to bring an end to the terrible wave of blasphemies that afflict America.  As the great Saint Jerome stated: "A dog may bark in his master's defense, and am I to stand by silent when God’s holy name is blasphemed? I would sooner die than forbear to speak.”

STOP the insulting artwork toward 85% of the American Christian people in this country. This artwork is NOT freedom of speech but an attack on our religious rights and freedom to worship as Christians.
PLEASE REMOVE this insulting artwork... and shame on the artist. "Some things are better left unpainted."

May God Bless them because they do not know what they are doing. It is very sad to hear about NY and the way they did that to Jesus with disrespect. America really needs Fatima, and they never learn in this beautiful and powerful country, but we are slowly going down if we are not careful and do not respect our Lord Jesus Christ. May God Bless you with all the great job that you have done to put a stop to this madness.
Sincerely in Jesus, Mary & Joseph

Unfortunately for the Artist.

I pray that God performs a miracle and assists the Artist to repent of this foul deed before it is too late for him

Whether He is aware of it or not all Blasphemers go to Hell!

Only Satan would have inspired THIS display - it is so puerile!

If you really consider this as artwork, why don't the person who created it replace Jesus by the figure of his/her mother or father.You are not forced to believe that Jesus is our Lord and Saviour. So you do not need to mention/use Him in your artwork. Blessed be the name of Jesus, now and forever.

Any little child would agree. We can pray for his conversion, but there is a big dose of evil involved with this attack against the Sacred Person of Our Lord.

Are you stupid? The socialist agenda is to reduce the Church, silence its voice, so that the liberal communist agenda is advanced. How else can a socialist government promote abortion, same sex marriage, mandate "health care," shelve the elderly. Coming soon to America, the eradication of Christianity.

the only reason that this troll is getting his "art" displayed is because of the liberal mindset so prevalent today, which basically holds on to the misguided idea that no behavior of any kind is unacceptable-to believe otherwise is to be branded a "hater" or "intolerant". Unfortunately, for those who peddle this smut, there is also no such thing as "bad" publicity; if they can shock & anger you, their objective has been accomplished. The only language they understand is if good people stay away in droves and pray for God's forgiveness.

Can you imagine the shock, utter horror and surprise for these people and all who have blasphemed Our blessed Lord throughout the ages when, at the General Judgment, they hear the words, "Depart from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, etc."? I imagine a roar of inhuman despair rising up from the throats of these blasphemers as they are shoved by the demons into Hell! With Mr. Mohammed the middle-aged husband of a 9-year-old girl! I imagine the most gigantic, collective SMACK of their hands on their foreheads and an "OH NO!!! It was true! Jesus was GOD!!! The Catholics were RIGHT after all!! Argh!!!" But of course, too late to ask forgiveness from Our Lord for the vile, disgusting filth they heaped on Him and Our Lady and the saints for years. The justice of God will be a frightening thing, won't it? And the righteous will rejoice in it, because God is blessed and perfect in His judgments.

We do need to pray. Pray hard and pray often. We also need to show a little solidarity and stop opening our pocket books to any institution or business which support or allow these types of blasphemies. Make them feel the pinch! Our group is very large yet still very much a sleeping giant. Money talks, especially in this economy. Hit 'em where it hurts the most. Aside from withholding money a cheap and easy way to start is to stop supporting the Huffington Post. Get your news elsewhere. They need you way more than you need them. Think before you click. To give you an idea of just how powerful we are as a group I read somewhere about a Catholic protest somewhere in Europe a while back. Afterward the print comment from the "other side" was something to the effect, "His lambs bite.....hard!" My response, "You bet we do!"

Why blaspheme Jesus Christ? Why not Muhammad? No one will dare blaspheme a Muslim.

Catholicism should not be the target of those who have no respect for themselves, let alone Our Savior Jesus Christ.

Let all New York Catholics, as well as all New York Christians, protest the Serrano trash. And let Catholic and Christian Church hierarchy organize this protest.

If everyone also protests the National endowment for the Arts for giving out money for trash like this, they may think twice perhaps next time - we will hold them accountable - through our senators and congressmen.

Jesus loves us ALL so much that he died on the cross for us. This is how people
appreciate what he did for us? My dear Jesus please have mercy on them and forgive them. Let us all pray for them to
seek forgiveness for what they have done.
I beg you to please remove this so-called art immediately.

There is a great chastisement coming because we as a nation have turned from God. If the Pope would only do as our Mother Mary asked at Fatima we would have a period of peace. Please pray the Rosary as she requested for the saving of our country. God please help us.

Jesus was contradicted, insulted, assaulted and finally put to death. This is also happening in our time and will happen till the end of the world. We, His followers, have to forgive and even love our enemies as He has commanded. So to show our love for the enemies, we are to pray for their conversion because there will be great rejoicing in heaven when they are converted.

Not only America but Europe (Christendom) will succumb to the faith whose followers violently protest any attack against its leader,within 50 years. You know why? Because the USA and Europe allow our Lord to be insulted and vilified over and over again and the law does nothing because of the so called freedom of speech! God save and have mercy on especially the USA where most of the transgressions occur over and over again!

Stop blaspheming and insulting our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Keep in mind that by the mention of His name alone, the earth will tremble. You should get on your knees and ask Him for forgiveness. He will forgive you. He is a kind and loving God. I pray that you will come to know Him and accept Him as your Lord and Savior as well.

ONLY Christianity is openly mocked in the USA today. The National Endowment of the Arts would find itself on the international news and in the courts if it helped fund blasphemous insults against any other religion. Who, at that institution, makes the decision to approve funding for hate ?

I'm not surprised..we live a time such as Jesus'. Recall the crowds loud cry..."Give Us Barabbas....crucify Jesus!"
It is still the cry from the populus. Give us legal abortions. Give us same sex "marriage." Give us free love.
Soon our dear Lord will appease the Justice of His Father.
Soon will come His vindication.
Please keep praying. Keep your wick trimmed. Keep giving testimony that Jesus is coming to take His own, and leave the unfaithful in their pool of p***.

Thank God that there were people in New York who would stand up for Jesus Christ in quiet and respectful protest against this blasphemy. It is outrageous that this offensive display is allowed in an "art" museum that is generously supported by public dollars and even more offensive that this "art" piece was endowed with tax payers dollars. What is happening to common decency in this nation?

What this person has done is disgusting and evil. But Christ would want us to pray for their souls and for a change in their hearts. I say they, because it isn't the artist alone who is at fault here but the officials who allowed it to be exhibited. God help this society to change from their wicked ways.

I agree with the comment that this so-called"artist" KNOWS exactly what he is doing, that there is malice and evil involved here, but I will venture to say that he is no doubt a fallen away Christian who at some point in time became bitter and bigoted toward Our Lord and Savior. Was it the moral teachings that Jesus espoused that this man rejected for his own purposes or just plain hatred? If Christians don't stand up against this blasphemy, our faith will continue to be disrespected and mocked by others like him and indeed by radical Muslims the world over.THEY don't tolerate any such insult against the prophet and even regard Jesus as a prophet in the Quran. How can we tolerate such an insult here in the U.S.? WHICH one of our Catholic church leaders is going to so something about this vulgar display in New York City? BAB

The difference between Christian reaction and Muslim reaction to insult/blasphemy against Muhammad or God is that the Muslims are ready to kill the offender. Our Christian faith teaches us to love, forgive and "turn the other cheek".

But I can say this: Mr Andres Serrano, whether you believe in God or not, you will be condemned to hell if you do not destroy this offending image you call "art". May God have mercy on you, and change you.

What do you expect? Our country has lost its moral compass and its acknowledgement of The Creator. We have become our own Gods with no regard for others. 4,000 babies are murdered everyday in this country by their own mothers and fathers. The sacrament of marriage is profaned by same-sex couples. Freedom is confused with license. The Church is under persecution. We will be held accountable by the God who created us. May He have mercy on our country which condones so much immorality. May He lead us to repentance and penance through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
