Free Expression, Public Funding and Blasphemy...

October 1, 2020

New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights are leading the charge to shut down a controversial exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Titled “Sensations,” the exhibition includes a painting which some consider to be “blasphemous” and an insult to religious belief.

The controversy touches on many issues, including public funding of the arts, free expression, and the right to criticize, question or even “insult” religious beliefs and practices. What better excuse for another American Atheist Magazine poll?

Once again, we have several questions for visitors to respond to. For further information, please read the Flash Line story on this controversy, and the commentary in Mr. G’s latest On Target column.

This opinion poll is now closed. You can still view the final results and readers' comments. Please visit again and participate in our next poll.
