    So the gallery has given in to religious extremism by closing the exhibit. Fanaticism and intolerance win again. A sad day.

    Does anyone else besides me see a distinct comparison between this incident and the Nazi reaction to what they called entartete Kunst, or "degenerate art?"

    Finally!!! I thought we'd never get to the Nazi reference.

    The thread is complete now.

    Christians are the neoNazi's .. and so is the USA.

    Repeat .. ad infinitum .. or at least until you're able to feel good about yourself.

    If the shoe fits, wear it.

    Religious fundamentalism and Fascism are two peas in a pod. There are a good number of respectable, liberal christians who defy that close association, but there are far too many for whom the two go hand in hand.
