Battle Lines are Being Drawn, Courtesy of Nancy Pelosi

Battle lines are being drawn…

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi defended a piece of art depicting DaVinci’s Last Support as a homosexual sadomasochist party. According to CNSNews, a Pelosi spokesperson stated that it fell under the guise of free speech. Furthermore, the art does not offend Christianity.

On one hand, the art unfortunately is protected by the First Amendment. I can handle that, for if I so object, I do not have to look at it OR appreciate it. But, in an age when Islam is handled with kid gloves by the media, whereby journalists, diplomats, elected officials refuse to challenge the religion or even apply the same treatment that Christianity, Judaism endures; that’s the problem I have. I would contend many other like-minded thinkers would as well.

Here’s the difference; here’s why the godless Left can attack the Christian institution yet turn a blind eye from the overt violence of Islam: no Christian will issue a fatwa condemning said artist or writer to death. No one fears Christian violence.

You know why? Contrary to what the Left would implore you to believe about so-called abortion clinic bombings, or the inane ramblings of a televangelist, Christians traffic in love and kindness; for crying out loud, Jesus advocated turning the other cheek.

How often do you hear about Christian terrorism?

That’s right, you don’t.

Pelosi: Sadomasochistic Last Supper Ad Doesn't 'Harm' Christianity

( - A controversial advertisement for a San Francisco festival that depicts the Last Supper as a sadomasochism party falls within the First Amendment and is not harmful to Christianity, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday.

The ad for the Folsom Street Fair - to be held in Pelosi's district on Sunday and which is partly funded by San Francisco's Grants for the Arts program, which is funded by the city's hotel tax - sparked outrage from Christian groups because it mirrors Leonardo Da Vinci's famous painting of "The Last Supper" but replaces Jesus and his apostles with scantily leather-clad men and women sitting at a table adorned with sex toys.

A spokesman for Pelosi told a San Francisco publication yesterday that the ad would not harm Christianity. Cybercast News Service put Pelosi herself on the spot at a news conference in the U.S. Capitol Friday. Here's the exchange between the reporter and Pelosi.
