Art vs. Hate Crime

April 25, 2019

 

This image is one I found while searching the internet. Created by Michael Barber, John Bergsma, Brant Pitre, and John Kincaid, it is an image that shows two toilets: one featuring the Koran and another featuring the Holy Bible are depicted with the words "hate crime" over the toilet holding the Koran and "art" over the Holy Bible. 


This piece of artwork is meant to provoke its audience as it displays the issues of religion in our world in terms of the anti-Christian prejudice that is found in different corners of our culture. And it shows that we have a long ways to go in terms of overcoming this prejudice against other cultures and their religions. This can be viewed by some as a degradation of their religion, but it that, is exactly what it is trying to do-show that we degrade others religion while lifting up our own.
