i just have to express my pov about that controversial art exhibit in ccp, particularly mideo's art.
yes, art is all about self-expression. and mideo expresses, comments, provokes. and for me, he blasphemes. im catholic. i hold those images sacred. and i find it offensive that symbols i hold dear have been associated with anatomical parts associated with pornography.
this is me, reacting, protesting. im offended. i choose not to view the exhibit, nor pictures of it.
but will i demand that it be taken down? no, i won't. i have no right to impose my standards, my faith on others. how dare me think that my sensibilities should prevail! and i will not even dare to ask government to step in and take that exhibit down. the government as an institution was made not for catholics alone. it cannot use its powers to let one faith, one religion prevail over all the others.
whether we like it or not, whether we accept it or not, the world is moving towards more and more diversity, in color, in creed, in culture. it is happening everywhere and is happening here. this is the law of entropy at work. there will be less neat divisions and categories. and we will have to accept and embrace that.
so even as i hate what mideo has put there, he has every right to display that and express himself as i have with this post.
