Piss Christ is a 1987 photograph by artist  and photographer Andres Serrano . It depicts a small plastic crucifix  submerged in a glass of the artist’s urine . The piece was a winner of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art ‘s “Awards in the Visual Arts” competition,  which is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts , a United States Government  agency that offers support and funding for artistic projects. A print of the photograph was damaged using a screwdriver or icepick on April 17, 2011 while on exhibit in Avignon , France.
Maybe the four Marine gentlemen should apply to National Endowment for the Arts for a grant to cover the cost o their legal defense. I mean it is not like the tax payers have never paid for stuff like this before. I mean if offending millions of Christians should qualify for a federal grant, what is the problem with offending Muslims, or the difference?
If the Marine gentlemen had urinated on the Taliban gentlemen while they still alive, it would be called kinky. If the Taliban were dead, it then becomes performance art.
