Pope In Drag Yanked From Italian Art Exhibit

Organizers of an exhibition on the relationship between homosexuality and art said Wednesday they were removing a controversial sculpture depicting Pope Benedict in drag.

The exhibit drew protests from the Catholic Anti-Defamation League, which threatened to seek charges against the organizers for defaming a head of state.

The group expressed outrage at “the vulgar offence against Christ’s vicar and the feelings of Roman Catholics,” the group said in a statement.

The sculpture, titled “Miss Kitty,” shows the Pope in a blond bob wig wearing nothing but a stole, a pair of panties and thigh-high stockings. (

If these folks really want to be “avant-garde” and “free [themselves] from the dogmatic and ecclesiastic censors”, let them do the same with Islam’s Prophet Muhammed. Of course insulting people who’ve already shown no problem with removing the heads of their detractors would require far more testicular fortitude than these folks are capable of. This is the kind of cowardly and juvenile behavior which makes much of the “speak truth to power” fringe of the Left so contemptible. As for CADL, thank God we have the First Amendment in this country which guarantees the rights even of those whom we may vigorously disagree with. Perhaps Italy should take notes because head of state or not, nobody deserves this kind of ‘protection’ through force of law.

The Welfare of Iraqi Civilians and the Immoral Position of Liberals

I’m wondering if there are any American liberals who actually care about the well-being of the Iraqi civilian population?

They are all too quick to pronounce the (incorrect) data about Iraqi civilian deaths supposedly caused by the US military, though in the same breath they “support the troops.”

But where were the American liberals when Saddam was gassing his own population in a clear case of genocide for which he was convicted?

And what is the American liberal answer to the Iraqi civilian who is now supporting the American presence if we have a sudden withdrawal?

American Liberals:  Who do you care about these days?   It is hard to know.  Do you have any real interest in the human rights of people (especially gay people and women) under the oppressed regimes or tribes run by strict Islamic Sharia law?  Or is “human rights” now an inconvenient truth to you?
