Osama as Jesus Art Sparks Christian Outrage

A work of "art" displayed for the National Black Fine Art Show in the Puck Building in New York is sparking Christian outrage, sort of. The piece is an upside down Christ with the face of Osama Bin Laden.

The art show's producer admitted that he had not made the connection, hates Bin Laden, but made a bold statement saying, "I don't think it's anyone's job or vocation to limit the expression of artists."

It's a good thing the image was not of Mohammad as Osama, or the art show would have to deal with these guys:
