Piss Christ by Serrano Andres (1987).jpg

Immersion (Piss Christ) was an NEA sponsored work of shock "art" meant to offend and insult Christians. It was a 1987 photograph of a plastic crucifix submerged in a tank of the artist's urine. The artist (Andres Serrano) claims no political intent and he was trying to symbolize the ugly realities of crucifixion by using bodily fluids - the art community and secular left of course lavished it with praise and rewards because it insulted religion and offended American sensibilities and good taste. And while Obama condemned art that insulted Islam/Muslims, he refused to answer the calls of Christians asking the same reaction towards this piece.
