Non-Acceptable....Acceptable



We've been hearing the groans and grumblings of this Imus person all week long. To tell you the truth I never heard of Imus before this reporting. I stay away from so called shock-jocks like Stern (I have Sirius Radio) and this guy Imus.

From what I hear the infamous statement, which I won't repeat, has stirred up the hornet nest and rightfully so. There is no need for this kind of language and this form of so called entertainment. I could go on about this, but I'd like to bring attention to another instance of this foolishness that has no-one up in arms.



In Los Angeles, the art scene can be pretty bizarre at times, though we do have some outstanding museums and exhibitions.

... this is not one of them.

Over at the Niche.LA. Art studio ( the name of the studio should tip you off as to what kind of art is displayed here) on Spring Street is an exhibit entitled "CHRIST KILLA" . This is the work of Eric Medine who is based in Los Angeles. He's has put together a 'VIDEO GAME' where the object is to kill as many Jesus Christ characters in the video as you can. It's a shoot'm - up type of game only the bad guy is Christ himself.


Described as the ultimate arbitration between politics and Christianity, “Christ Killa” is a video game linked to video projectors and television monitors. A first person shooter in which the player shoots hordes of homicidal Jesus Christs, the game landscape is filled with Googled images of Christian propaganda posters, religious shrines such as St. Peter’s in Rome, and clich├ęd representations of Christ who constantly mumbles messages of tolerance and compassion.



The audience is invited to participate in the carnage by playing the video game and watching short videos of the game in action. The winner with most Christ kills will be awarded with a trophy at 9:00PM.

Did I read correctly???? You can win a prize for this?!

Where is the outrage here?


Where is the news coverage of this anti-Christian public showing?



Oh...I see. This is acceptable
