    I really don’t know what to say, I’m not against or in favor of it. But if I’ll look at how artistic his works are..there’s no doubt they were really a work of art.

    Freedom of expression has a limit and it should not be abused. Mideo Cruz artwork is a clear sample of Garbage Art!

    although 8s an art, pero parang hindi nailagay sa tama..,.dpat sana naisip ng CCP bago ito ipinaexhibit kac ang sagwa namn tignan at parang nakadegrading namn para sa ating mga Pilipino lalo sa relihiyong Catholic… hindi namn ako nanghuhusga ky mideo pero para sa akin kac yong imahe ni Jesus ay tinitignan natin as Holy kaya dapat inaalagaan in a different ways…..

    I get enraged when religion starts running everyone’s business, (in this case, the ever so invincible Catholic church of the Philippines), but I do agree that the expression of religion in this art was executed in bad taste. Its as simple as that. All the bruhaha is just because the offended party happens to be the dominant religion. If the artist chose a different religion for expression, I doubt her Imeldific would even bat an eyelid.

    What i hated is the word war that happened. I grew up in Letran but I never saw priests like that! These are NOT the kind of priest I grew up with! They looked like gangsters, very unprofessional! I didn’t like the way they handled themselves. They should have shown humility to the public and bring it to court and tell the people that they will wait for the judgment of the court. They should be role models showing people that we have a justice system.
    About Mr. M. Cruz, I have no right judging him. I am not an art critic. I was thought that if I don’t see something I don’t like, I move on and give no comments. I don’t judge bec. I don’t want to be judged. I am not a fool commenting on issues I have no knowledge of. I wait for the court decision. Just like in Visconde’s case. Supreme Court said Web and group are free. I have to accept the decision, whether I like it or not.
    This is how things should be done here and not make any grandstanding and propaganda! At magsiga-sigaan!

    Agree ako na freedom of expression to. Pero gaya ng sabi ni Jonathan Mateo may limit ang lahat ng freedom. Kasama ang responsibility sabi ng aming pari…pero ang isa pang masakit eh galing pang UST ang artist….

    Actually, the art of Mideo was embarrassing to the Catholic faith and who believes in Jesus as a Savior and a Holy one. It show disrespectful.

    Ang isang kahoy na titi sa noo ng isang imahen ay hindi gugutom at papatay sa mga batang iskwater. Mas malala ba ang “blasphemous” na sining kesa sa mga tarantandong politikong nagnanakaw ng pera mo?

    I don’t think these artworks of Mideo Cruz are what you call “pambabastos”. Like one of his artworks wherein there is a penis on Jesus nose. Phallic symbols ages ago symbolize Power. That’s also what Mideo said when I attended his artist talk. What Mideo clearly wants to show is that Jesus has power, simple as that. I guess, we shouldn’t judge different artworks just by merely looking at it.
