Truth in Media's GLOBAL WATCH Bulletin 97/10-1 4-Oct-97
CETINJE, Montenegro - Picture a Jesus Christ crucified on an (Orthodox) cross surrounded by four apostles, three of whom have the Nazi swastikas painted over their heads and halos.
Yes. But that's not all.
Now, substitute a pig's head for Christ's on the same cross, and visualize his oversized erect penis protruding toward the apostles.
Vulgar? Profane? Revolting?
You bet. But that's not all, either.
Imagine a nun praying on her knees to a naked woman with a halo over her head who appears to be masturbating. Envisage a cross with Christ's head on the cross shown as a lump of feces.
Disgusting? Crude? Primitive?
Of course. But that's not all, either.
The above were only some examples of the "art" which the liberal globalists, like Nikola Petrovic, a Paris-based distant relative of Montegro's famous 19th century poet and bishop, brought to Cetinje (Montenegro) Bienale III. This spoof of Jesus Christ and of the sacred Christian objects, was sponsored by the United Nations' UNESCO organization, the European Council, the Montenegro government (read Milo Djukanovic, the prime minister and leading presidential candidate), the British and Austrian embassies to Yugoslavia, the foreign ministry of Italy, and by and some other French, Spanish and Austrian organizations. "The Antichrist brought to you by the New World Order" (our term) exhibit was supposed to last from Sept. 20 to Nov. 2, 1997. It was hurriedly closed last week by the Montenegrin government after a barrage of protests from the Serbian Christian community, led by Metropolitan (Archbishop) Amfilohije of Cetinje. Djukanovic feared that his sponsorship of the exhibit may cost him some votes in the heat of the presidential election campaign, according to our Belgrade sources.
Despite the closure, there is no evidence that organizers or sponsors were embarrassed by the sacrilegious filth they were brazenly pawning off as "art."
"Isn't it cynical (for Mr. Petrovic, the president of the Bienale) to accuse (us) of 'censorship of an exhibit,' and, God forbid, of endangering 'artistic freedom,' when such 'freedom' spits upon the faith, upon the conscience, upon the human dignity of millions of people?" asked Met. Amfilohije in a news release dated Sept. 25. "An artist is free to proclaim that the feces and animal-like images are his basic reality of God - all in the name of 'freedom of expression.' Don't I then have also the right to protest when someone sticks such feces under my nose? Especially when the 'search for a new spirituality' is manifested by a painting of a feces or a pig on a cross... or that of the Jewish star instead of the Christ who has risen, thereby implying for those who are not illiterate that all European culture and art is founded upon a feces and pig-like passion."
(A highly placed Belgrade source has told this writer on Oct. 2 that some visitors to the exhibit reported a bad stink coming from the painting in which Christ's head was depicted as a lump of feces on the cross, suggesting that real feces was used to create the effect).
"The last phase of a dark epoch begins when politics becomes separated from morality," Met. Amfilohije said, quoting a passage from a catalogue at the Cetinje Bienale. "The darkness becomes deeper and wider when art becomes separated from morality, as was the case at this exhibit."
Ed. An isolated case of anti-Christian propaganda? Hardly. In our TiM GW Bulletin 97/7-11 (7/29/97), we reported about an article published in the Israeli scientific magazine Galilo about the dangers of cloning, which was illustrated with an image depicting Virgin Mary with a cow's head, according to a July 5 report by the Birzeit News, a Birzeit University paper.
The Greek Orthodox Archmandate, Dr. Attallah Hanna, similarly attacked it as " the slur on Christianity. The 'Latin' (the Roman Catholic?) Patriarch Michel Sabbah commented that the Galilo image represented a kind of provocation, "that leads to war and sectarian strife."
The editor of the Israeli magazine apologized under pressure. Yet the New World Order sponsors of the Cetinje sacrilege remain unrepentant. Is it because they DID try to foment more "war and sectarian strife" in the Balkans with a DELIBERATE provocation of the Christians?
If so, their attempt has failed miserably. For, Every artist's work is a mirror of himself, not that of the subject. Just like the communists who desecrated Christian art, the NWO artists and sponsors of the Cetinje exhibit have merely managed to demonstrate their own primitivism, crudeness and vulgarity.
For that reason, this writer wishes the exhibit had remained open, and that Christian organizations had given it maximum publicity, bringing visitors to Cetinje from all over the world to see first-hand the real face of the NWO.
P.S. This writer has a copy of the poster advertising the exhibit, as well as the photos of several of the paintings described above. If any of you wish to have them uploaded, please let us know. But you will have to wait for this until this writer returns to the U.S., later in October, when the images will be scanned at our office.
