Osama Bin Laden & Jesus

Osama Bin Laden and Jesus

I didn’t really want to blog about this, but I feel that my personal opinion should not matter most. One of the entries for the Australian Blake Prize for Religious Art portrays Osama Bin Laden as Jesus. The painting is a lenticular image in which the viewer can flip between portraits of Jesus and Osama by shifting from side to side.

“I am not interested in being offensive. I am interested in having a discussion and asking questions about how we think about our world and what we accept and what we don’t accept”

I don’t understand what questions we should ask though.
