Cooper Union hate speech

According to CNSNews:

The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City is hosting the art show, which began May 27 and runs through June 10. In the show is a series of paintings by Felipe Baeza. One painting shows a man with his pants pulled down and a crucifix extending from his rectum. Under the painting it says, "el dia que me converti catolico," which means, "The day I became a Catholic."

Another Baeza piece substitutes a Rosary for the crucifix. Another one shows a man with his pants down and an angel holding two Rosaries with a penis attached to each of them. In yet another painting there is a halo hovering over a naked man with an erection, according to the Catholic League.

If anything similarly offensive against Muslims, Jews, homosexuals, African-Americans or women were on display, people would be outraged. But hate speech against Christians is tolerated.

Exactly! By definition hate speech must be against politically correct groups and precepts. When such speech is directed at non-politically correct groups, it is called protected free speech.
