Art or Anti-Christian? ver 2.0

Currently on display at the Saatchi gallery in London is the piece below by Agathe Snow. As for the blog entry on Paul Fyer's piece, A Privilege of Dominion, I'd like to pose the question: is this art or anti-christian? And will we ever see these brave avant garde artists ever dare to draw upon Islam in creating similarly provoking pieces?

They aren't mutually exclusive. And just because something is anti-Christian, doesn't meant it isn't art...Most Christians in London don't take religion as seriously as Muslims in London. In fact, anti-muslim art in a place like Bosnia, Albania or Montenegro might not even get as much of a reaction as anti christian art.

Wherever you have extremists, you will have extreme reactions, no matter which religion.
