If satire offends you, then you are a boob.

Ask yourself this: were you also highly offended with all the Bush bashing that got so tiresome? Sure, it was funny for the first five or six years. Then it got old. How about the one with the swastika on his forehead? Did that offend you? Didn't think so. I'm definitely NOT defending bush, but what makes it any different? Just who you like? Don't mess with who I like... but trashing anyone else is okay???
Not sure who you are refering to with this post. I was not offended by Bush bashing. Bush was a retard. I'd throw an egg at a painting of him as well. I never liked Bush so don't assume I'm defending him. But anyone that thinks Obama is a messiah needs their heads examined. He might be the president... but he's no messiah.

Art is meant to be pondered, discussed, criticized, or enjoyed, debated etc.. I'd say the artist has fulfilled his/her intention. Anyone remember Andres Serrano's work "**** Christ" from the 80's? It's just art...

Yes, I wonder how many of those who are highly offended by 'The Truth' aren't at all offended by 'P**s Christ'?
