Ipako sa Krus Si Mideo Cruz!
"Madaming tanong at argumento," ika ng aming SPOT.ph blogger. "Isa-isahin natin."
By: Lourd de Veyra  |   Published on: Aug 23, 2011 - 1:32pm



Nakatrabaho ko na si Mideo Cruz dati. Sa isang performance art festival. Sabihin na lang natin na ang pagiging “subtle” ay wala sa mga katangian ng kanyang estetika. Actually, karamihan sa mga nagperform doon ay hindi matatawag na kimi at mahinhin. May nag-ahit ng bulbol. “No to Bush!” sigaw niya pagkatapos. Wala naman silang narinig na umangal na kinatawan ng US Embassy. May isang Eastern European na inuuntog lang ang noo sa pader nang mahigit 20 minutes hanggang may isang linya ng dugo na gumagapang pababa. May Hapon na hinampas ang sariling noo ng makapal na salamin at may sinulat na Japanese characters na hindi ko naintindihan. May mga nag-ingay gamit ang mga mixer/laptop na pinasakan ng kung ano-anong tunog na kinuha ata mula sa pinakamalapit na construction site at rumaragasang imburnal.



Sabihin na lang natin na ang personalidad ni Mideo ay malayo-layo naman sa imaheng Satanista o kampon ng impiyerno na ibinabato sa kanya ng mga senador. Hindi niya naman ako sinaksak ng burat na inukit mula sa matigas na molave. Wala naman siyang sinakripisyong sanggol habang tinatawag ang pangalan ni Lucifer.


Doon sa naturang performance art festival, si Mideo pa nga ang isa sa pinaka-subtle noon. “Subtle” meaning hindi siya nag-ahit ng bulbol. Isang statement laban sa imperyalisong kano ang kanyang ginawa. May dala siyang megaphone (nakalimutan ko na kung ano ang sinasabi niya). Nagbo-blow siya ng bubbles gamit ang pambatang laruan. Suot niya ay Uncle Sam costume pero may twist—naka-cycling shorts lang siya na may stars and stripes (At pag nakita mo ang katawan ni Mideo, ‘yun ata ang pina-shocking sa lahat.).  Ang performance niya ay isang gumagalaw na simbolo para sa “American Dream” na yun nga—panaginip lang na parang bula, huwad, isang ilusyon na walang laman.



Maaring i-apply ang metaporang ito sa kanyang exhibit na “Poleteismo” na ngayon ay isa na lamang alaala matapos ipasara ng management ng CCP. Alam na siguro natin ang mga nangyari. Pero madaming tanong at argumento. Isa-isahin natin.

    Polytheism yun. Una: Ang larawan ni Jesus the Annointed, ikalawa nakatayong ari ng lalake ang patron image ni Shiva ng mga Hindu. http://www.exoticindiaart.com/article/shivalinga/

    Sana, yung iba, sumuri muna bago magalit. Nakakapagtakang isipin na kung sino ang walang alam si art, e sila pa ang nauunang magsalita, na dapat sana'y naging imperative muna.

    puting a d*ck on someone's face doesn't necessarily make you an artist. ahahahaha. it's really so funny. mideo just wants to remembered ... etc. do something epic. get famous. etc. public stunt. Art and Religion don't mix, they're like oil and water. rnFreedom of expression -- comes with responsibility. Whatever happens to mideo.. It is his responsibility. I don't care whether people cut off his balls. In this world, POST AT YOUR OWN RISK. rnbut then again, he calls it "His Art". Bahala na ang diyos sa kanta. rnrnpero just think of this... kung ang mukha mo ba ang ginanyan... tama pa ba yun? art and ethics or ethics can mix. rnand freedom is not a license to do whatever you want. not to mention, putting a d*ck on someone's face. It was mideo's choice to express himself that kind of way. If he thinks what he did is right.. he better fight for it.. live through it. and if he won't, he's nothing but a gay-ass wanna -be-famous artist.

    Mideo Cruz abused his freedom of expression. Obviously, for me, his exhibit is for the CBCP. Instead of using Jesus Christ's image(really, it is disrespectful not just on Catholics but also on other believers of Christ), he should use the portrait of those interloper bishops. It is more audacious act and direct to the point.

    mabuti hindi nya ininsulto ni Mideo Cruz ang mga Muslim katulad sa nangyari sa isang dyaryo sa Denmark na binastos nila ang imahe ni Mohammad. Kung ginaya niya yon, malaman may magtatanim ng bomba sa loob ng CCP na galing sa Abu Sayaff o Jamiyyah Islamiyah.

Besides, we have different beliefs and kung ayaw nilang may makasamang ibang relihiyon sa Planetang Earth, ibenta mo na lang sa kanila Sir Lourd yang Crazy mong planeta. and lastly, Art is a matter of appreciation, kung 'di maapreciate ng CBCP un, e di wag nilang tignan.... eto last na talaga, WALANG VIOLATED RULES si MIDEO...hinahanapan lang siya ng butas....

Ang Installation ni Cruz.- Aaminin ko nakakaoffend pero may magagawa ba ako sa ginawa nyang pag babastos sa imahe ni Kristo??? - WALA!! May magagawa ba ako dahil pumayag ang CCP na ipalabas ang mga "art expressions" nya??? WALA!! May kahihinatnan ba kung papatayin ko sya mamaya pag labas nya ng bahay nya??? WALA - Ipagdadasal ko na lang sya...Pero isang bagay lang ang sigurado ako. Bahala na ang Diyos sa kanya.

    Enough is enough! Many among us, including LOURD are projecting to be someone who is knowledgeable in art. While it is true we appreciate FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, but we also have to remember that real artists practice a thing called CODE OF ETHICS. Unfortunately MIDEO CRUZ violated one or more of these guidelines.rnrnUSING OTHER'S IMAGES. Commonly, a seasoned artist will seek permission from the beholder of the image, or any authority of the society, religion or organization represented by the image.rnrn. rnrn

    Ang masasabi ko sa gawa ni Mideo ay hindi uri ng sining. Ito ay uri na "Vandalismo". Ang tunay na alagad ng sining ay dapat sensitibo. Ang kanyang obra ay dapat wala sa pampublikong lugar na tulad ng CCP, dapat ito ay nasa pribadong lugar na ang makakakita ay ang mga tulad niya, na may kaparehas na paniniwala. Hands-off ako sa lakas ng loob nya isapubliko ito. Kaya sang-ayon ako na tawaging "Immature" ang obra ni Mideo Cruz.

    My Dear Mr. De Veyra,rnrnI'm again throwing my few cents worth into your article about Art, Religion and Speech. Yes, I can read Filipino, not that good but after the fifth attempt, I think I get what you were trying to say. I have a feeling that the whole Mideo Cruz-CCP-Poleteismo episode brought out the "artist/poet/activist" in you as evidenced by the various arguments you have ventured forth in your article.rnrnAllow me to get to where we (obviously) disagree...rnrnIn your comments on "ARGUMENTO: Paano kung may kumuha ng picture ng magulang mo at biglang sinalpakan ng kahoy na t*t* at mga gamit na condom?" I have to point out the difference between a picture of a person and a picture of a devotional subject. The former has limited meaning outside a person's family and circle of friends. While the latter has meaning to the religionists who consider the picture of a devotional subject as important. And it is how you answered this first "Argumento" betrays your biases. I gather that there is a high possibility that you are intolerant of religion and I dare say it, especially intolerant of the Christian religion and to a much lesser extent of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, etc.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Ang Cultural Center of the Philippines ay isang pampublikong institusyon na pinopondohan ng buwis ng taumbayan. At hindi dapat ginagamit para sa kung ano-anong kabulastugan na tutuligsa sa pinakasagradong sentimiyento ng mga tao." >> Wow! was that a hint of some brain cells at work? You are right, being a government-owned and taxpayer-funded institution, the CCP is accountable ultimately to the taxpayer and in this case CCP it seems was a vehicle or even enabler for offending the religious sensibility of majority of the taxpayer base.rnSurely a "artist/poet/activist" of your caliber can see this simple fact. You should have taken this opportunity to argue that if CCP will continue to push the frontiers of art dialogue in the Philippines, the Mideo Cruz incident is a great opportunity to privatize the CCP and continue its critical cultural mission without pressure from angered taxpayers who have every right to complain as their hard-earned taxes are funding something that offends their religious sensibilities. But naturally this point escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind and instead point out that a movie featuring Gael Garcia Bernal with equally offensive religious material was not treated with the same attention as Poleteismo.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Ang naturang pambabastos ba ay magpapabagsak sa matatag na institusyon ng Iglesia Katolika?" >> Again you missed the point. The Christian/Catholic nature of the offending art by Mr. Cruz is a mere indicental, the real nature of Mr. Cruz's shock art is to attach religion/personal belief itself. Mr. Cruz chose to target the Christian religion for the attention (in a predominantly Christian country, this is hard to miss) and the fact that when you offend Christians they complain in largely civilized manner as compared to, say, Muslims or Jews (well the Philippines has no ADF or Simon Wiesenthal Center so you won't know how this works). You go on to cite atheists, John Lennon and communists as those who sought to offend religion. I have to add one more group that you conveniently did not cite, the Nazis. Yes, the Nazis offended the Jews in the 20th century and such was their hatred of Judaism and even Christianity (despite Hitler being raised Catholic) was that millions were stripped of their rights, turned into slaves then killed en masse. All because a few intolerant elite did not like Jews and Christians. Lets add here the Soviets which outlawed religion in Russia or Karl Marx, someone you quote quite liberally, who despite being a Jew was a rabid anti-semite and its no wonder why in Soviet Russia and East Germany--two states that adopted Marxism full blast--Jews were frequently persecuted. My point is intolerance of religion ends up in these inhuman conclusions. Please be cultivate a more civilized dissent on religion.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Kalayaan ng pamamahayag vs. tahasang pambabastos sa paniniwala ng mas nakakarami?" >> Again you missed the opportunity to open a discussion on Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech and religion and instead reverted to your psudo-intellectual elitetism by bungling a quote from a deranged anti-semite whose political philosophy was responsible for a few billion people enslaved and hundred million deaths in the 20th century. (FYI Marx did not say "religion is the opium of the masses" but "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.") What you should have argued (and this is not exclusive) is that while free speech is a right it is possible to offend unintentionally or otherwise and it is via active dialogue in society these views are debated and discussed. Maybe you could have defended why speech may or may not have limits? Or what constitutes speech? For instance, lets take animal crush videos, these are those sick videos where young puppies or cats are being crushed by a person's foot until they die. It is sickening to be sure but a recent US Supreme Court ruled (and it was led by the conservatives in the court) animal crush videos, while disturbing, are still legal and should form part of the right to free speech. Why? because any power by the state to limit such is the same as an arbitrary power by the state to, in fact, place a limit to speech and thought itself. Hence we must conclude that while Mr. Cruz has every right to do his shock art, he should also be mindful of the consequences of his art. Why? because ideas, Sir, have consequences.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Hindi puputok ang kontrobersyang ito kung hindi pinalaki ng media." >> Yes. Media loves scandal but not goody-goody stories. Now why is that?rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Kelangan pa ba ng senate investigation para sa isyung ito?"rn>> Well, my dear Mr. De Veyra, maybe it escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind but the Senate can take up any topic under the sun. That's the way its rules are structured. Also, since the Senate also scrutinizes the budget of the CCP, it simply can't help itself but to interfere.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Censorship ba ang nangyari sa exhibit sa CCP?" >> Let's see, the CCP voluntarily shut the exhibit down as it caved into public pressure. Did a government agency or official order them to shut it down? No. Did they agree to re-open the exhibit without Mr. Cruz's offending art? No. I think the censorship you are referring to is more of an illusion than something that can be justified by the facts.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Is it good art or bad art?" >> At least you got this somewhat right. But inconveniently for the psudo-intellectuals, the National Artist F. Sonil Jose alluded to it being uncivilized when he called it "immature".rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Subukan niya kayang gawin 'yan sa mga Muslim, kay Mohammed at Allah? Tingnan natin kung hindi siya pugutan ng ulo." >> Aha! good point! and why is that? why is the anti-religion object of shock art always Christians? Of course your answer was a classic cop-out "Bawal ang mga imahe at lahat ng representasyon ng mga buhay na bagay sa Islam. Pansinin ang mga drawings sa Islamic art-puro patterns at kulay lang." You forget that Muslims forbid the mere drawing of the face of Mohammed and this was the basis for the Danish cartoon incident a few years back. How about the movie Fitna? where the movie showed how quotes from the Quran is inconsistent with violence in the Muslim world. Or what about the movie Submission, which showed the treatment of women in Islam? The director was gunned-down in broad daylight and the star (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) was persecuted? As an "artist/poet/activist" shouldn't you speak out about this when talking about this topic? Like I said, you coped-out.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Akala ko ba ang Kristiyanismo ay isang relihiyon ng pagpapatawad at pag-unawa?" >> Well forgiveness starts with discernment then realization then admission. Nest is forgiveness and then restitution. So has Mr. Cruz even started any discussions with those he offended? or even recognized those he offended?rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Bakit hindi tayo ganito kabangis mag-react sa ibang bagay? Gaya ng mabagal na pag-usad ng Ampatuan Massacre trial? Gaya ng mga patong-patong na kaso ni GMA at asawa niya? Gaya ng sunod-sunod na nauungkat na kabulastugan sa PAGCOR? " >> Good point. Maybe you should lead the move to convince your fellow Filipinos not to vote the same oligarchs and landed politicians and their families in power. Maybe if you just took time to realize that solving or even starting to change the political system in the Philippines does not start by voting as President a scion of a powerful political clan. My dear Mr. De Veyra, it does not matter how smart you are unless you stop and think.rnrnrnBest,rnrnF. Bastiatrn

    Hi Papa Lourd! As usual, ang haba at bongga nanaman mga article mo! Winner! Pero wait, papabels, mayroon akong nakakalokang masasabi:rnrnAng mga naging frablem sa naturing exhibit ay eto lang: naglagay ng isang clay (?) molding sa hugis ng ari sa ilong ng imahen ni Cristo.rnrnAko mismo ay hindi relihiyoso, heller may boylet ako charr! Ako miso ay nakakaappreciate ng fine arts, kasi may taste ang lola mo! Ako mismo ay naloloka minsan din sa Senado at ang mga chakang hearing nila same din sa mga CCP/pari at mga chakang moral advocacy nila.rnrnPero noong nakita ko yoon... it shocked me talaga. It was done in such poor taste, it made me sick. Parang time of the month ko, tsarot! Walang dahilan na pwede siyang ipatawad. None. It was despicable, and quite frankly disappointing that in this day and age, meron pading gumagamit ng imahen ni Cristo para lang mapansin.rnrnHuwag mo sana isipin Lourd, na dahil thundercats lang ang nakikita mong nagbibiritan sa TV eh sila lang ang na-scandalize noon. Pati mga bata, pati ibang mga artist, pati mga bonggang bonggang vaklers tulad 'ketch ay medyo nabulabog at natraumatize doon. In other words, I didn't lahvet!rnrnAy, tenku

    Nakakainis na dito sa Pinas, karamihan ay ignorante sa ganitong uri na isyu. Ano ba ang gustong ipahiwatid ni Cruz? Hindi ako sigurado, pero kaya ng a sining eh, para ang tao ay gamitin ang kanyang imahenasyon at kanyang pagtatanto upang maisip niya ang ibig iparating ng "art" na to. Nang dahil lang sa relihiyon, ganito parin tayo mag iisip. Dapat humanistiko na dapat tayo mag isip at mga suliranin ng ating bayan nalang ang pinaguusap. eg kurapsyon at mga isyu ng ating lipunan. Hindi naman talaga nakakatulong ang simbahan sa ganyang mga problema. Kailangan natin maiisip! :)

    Mideo Cruz' work is similar to Dadaism, the anti-art cultural artists revolution movement in the 30's that protested against the elite and the church in Europe as the masterminds behind WW1. Dadaism inspired Surrealism. Both were created to offend. rnrnIf Mideo Cruz' work is anti-art and he is quietly voicing an opinion against the church, CBCP, the political establishment or society as a whole, I believe he is gaining some grounds, but to do this, he will need big support from people who consider themselves sick of the business as usual attitude of our politicians and the clergy.

    critics should only look into the arts and tolerates to their minds that such things did happen in reality that way they wouldn´t say a false statement or wrongly judge the artist for their artworks.rnrnwhy is it when God created a person with a male/female sexual organ no one called the creator a nasty one,but why when mideo cruz makes some artwork that really exist in reali life,the narrow-minded people criticized cruz like he had murdered Christ.rnrnpeople with no understanding of freedom of expression can not tolerates themselves to see something different from ordinary things they see all the time.rnrni bet critics will be shocked of they saw an artworks of a man with a p*n*s all over his body or a woman with a pussy all over herself.rnrnnot all that were crucified symbolized Christ and not all cross refer to Christ.rnrncross is a sign of sin and the reason why catholic people always do the signing of cross to show the world they are indeed the most sinful mankind.rnrncatholic likes to repeat over and over the same mistakes they did everyday for them sinning is a way of life and if they don´t sinned no more,they are no longer catholic for they becomes holy animals.

    My Dear Mr. De Veyra,rn rnI'm again throwing my few cents worth into your article about Art, Religion and Speech. Yes, I can read Filipino, not that good but after the fifth attempt, I think I get what you were trying to say. I have a feeling that the whole Mideo Cruz-CCP-Poleteismo episode brought out the "artist/poet/activist" in you as evidenced by the various arguments you have ventured forth in your article.rn rnAllow me to get to where we (obviously) disagree...rn rnIn your comments on "ARGUMENTO: Paano kung may kumuha ng picture ng magulang mo at biglang sinalpakan ng kahoy na t*t* at mga gamit na condom?" I have to point out the difference between a picture of a person and a picture of a devotional subject. The former has limited meaning outside a person's family and circle of friends. While the latter has meaning to thernreligionists who consider the picture of a devotional subject as important. And it is how you answered this first "Argumento" betrays your biases. I gather that there is a high possibility that you are intolerant of religion and I dare say it, especially intolerant of the Christian religion and to a much lesser extent of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, etc.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Ang Cultural Center of the Philippines ay isang pampublikong institusyon na pinopondohan ng buwis ng taumbayan. At hindi dapat ginagamit para sa kung ano-anong kabulastugan na tutuligsa sa pinakasagradong sentimiyento ng mga tao." >> Wow! was that a hint of some brain cells at work? You are right, being a government-owned and taxpayer-funded institution, the CCP is accountable ultimately to the taxpayer and in this case CCP it seems was a vehicle or even enabler for offending the religious sensibility of majority of the taxpayer base. Surely a "artist/poet/activist" of your caliber can see this simple fact. You should have taken this opportunity to argue that if CCP will continue to push the frontiers of art dialogue in the Philippines, the Mideo Cruz incident is a great opportunity to privatize the CCP and continue its critical cultural mission without pressure from angered taxpayers who have every right to complain as their hard-earned taxes are funding something that offends their religious sensibilities. But naturally this point escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind and instead point out that a movie featuring Gael Garcia Bernal with equally offensive religious material was not treated withrnthe same attention as Poleteismo.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Ang naturang pambabastos ba ay magpapabagsak sa matatag na institusyon ng Iglesia Katolika?" >> Again you missed the point. The Christian/Catholic nature of the offending art by Mr. Cruz is a mere indicental, the real nature of Mr. Cruz's shock art is to attach religion/personal belief itself. Mr. Cruz chose to target the Christian religion for the attention (in a predominantly Christian country, this is hard to miss) and the fact that when you offend Christians they complain in largely civilized manner as compared to, say, Muslims or Jews (well the Philippines has no ADF or Simon Wiesenthal Center so you won't know how this works). You go on to cite atheists, John Lennon and communists as those who sought to offend religion. I have to add one more group that you conveniently did not cite, the Nazis. Yes, the Nazisrnoffended the Jews in the 20th century and such was their hatred of Judaism and even Christianity (despite Hitler being raised Catholic) was that millions were stripped of their rights, turned into slaves then killed en masse. All because a few intolerant elite did not like Jews and Christians. Lets add here the Soviets which outlawed religion in Russia or Karl Marx, someone you quote quite liberally, who despite being a Jew was a rabid anti-semite and its no wonder why in Soviet Russia and East Germany--two states that adopted Marxism full blast--Jews were frequently persecuted. My point is intolerance of religion ends up in these inhuman conclusions. Please be cultivate a more civilized dissent on religion.rn rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Kalayaan ng pamamahayag vs. tahasang pambabastos sa paniniwala ng mas nakakarami?" >> Again you missed the opportunity to open a discussion on Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech and religion and instead reverted to yourrnpsudo-intellectual eliteness by bungling a quote from a deranged anti-semite whose political philosophy was responsible for a few billion people enslaved and hundred million deaths in the 20th century. (FYI Marx did not say "religion is the opium of the masses" but "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soullessrnconditions. It is the opium of the people.") What you should have argued (and this is not exclusive) is that while free speech is a right it is possible to offend unintentionally or otherwise and it is via active dialogue in society these views are debated and discussed. Maybe you could have defended why speech may or may not have limits? Or what constitutes speech? For instance, lets take animal crush videos, these are those sick videos where young puppies or cats are being crushed by a person's foot until they die. It is sickening to be sure but a recent US Supreme Court ruled (and it was led by the conservatives in the court) animal crush videos, while disturbing, are still legal and should form part of the right to free speech. Why? because any power by the state to limit such is the same as an arbitrary power by the state to, in fact, place a limit to speech and thought itself. Hence we must conclude that while Mr. Cruz has every right to do his shock art, he should also be mindful of the consequences of his art. Why? because ideas, Sir, have consequences.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Hindi puputok ang kontrobersyang ito kung hindi pinalaki ng media." >> Yes. Media loves scandal but not goody-goody stories. Now why is that?rn rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Kelangan pa ba ng senate investigation para sa isyung ito?" >> Well, my dear Mr. De Veyra, maybe it escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind but the Senate can take up any topic under the sun. That's the way its rules are structured. Also, since the Senate also scrutinizes the budget of the CCP, it simply can't help itself but to interfere.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Censorship ba ang nangyari sa exhibit sa CCP?" >> Let's see, the CCP voluntarily shut the exhibit down as it caved into public pressure. Did a government agency or official order them to shut it down? No. Did they agree to re-open the exhibit without Mr. Cruz's offending art? No. I think the censorship you are referring to is more of an illusion than something that can be justified by the facts.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Is it good art or bad art?" >> At least you got this somewhat right. But inconveniently for the psudo-intellectuals, the National Artist F. Sonil Jose alluded to it being uncivilized when he called it "immature".rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Subukan niya kayang gawin ‘yan sa mga Muslim, kay Mohammed at Allah? Tingnan natin kung hindi siya pugutan ng ulo." >> Aha! good point! and why is that? why is the anti-religion object of shock art always Christians? Of course your answer was a classic cop-out "Bawal ang mga imahe at lahat ng representasyon ng mga buhay na bagay sa Islam. Pansinin ang mga drawings sa Islamic art—puro patterns at kulay lang." You forget that Muslims forbid the mere drawing of the face of Mohammed and this was the basis for the Danish cartoon incident a few years back. How about the movie Fitna? where the movie showed how quotes from the Quran is inconsistent with violence in the Muslim world. Or what about the movie Submission, which showed the treatment of women in Islam? The director was gunned-down in broad daylight and the star (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) was persecuted? As an "artist/poet/activist" shouldn't you speak out about this when talking about this topic?

    My Dear Mr. De Veyra,rn rnI'm again throwing my few cents worth into your article about Art, Religion and Speech. Yes, I can read Filipino, not that good but after the fifth attempt, I think I get what you were trying to say. I have a feeling that the whole Mideo Cruz-CCP-Poleteismo episode brought out the "artist/poet/activist" in you as evidenced by the various arguments you have ventured forth in your article.rn rnAllow me to get to where we (obviously) disagree...rn rnIn your comments on "ARGUMENTO: Paano kung may kumuha ng picture ng magulang mo at biglang sinalpakan ng kahoy na t*t* at mga gamit na condom?" I have to point out the difference between a picture of a person and a picture of a devotional subject. The former has limited meaning outside a person's family and circle of friends. While the latter has meaning to thernreligionists who consider the picture of a devotional subject as important. And it is how you answered this first "Argumento" betrays your biases. I gather that there is a high possibility that you are intolerant of religion and I dare say it, especially intolerant of the Christian religion and to a much lesser extent of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, etc.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Ang Cultural Center of the Philippines ay isang pampublikong institusyon na pinopondohan ng buwis ng taumbayan. At hindi dapat ginagamit para sa kung ano-anong kabulastugan na tutuligsa sa pinakasagradong sentimiyento ng mga tao." >> Wow! was that a hint of some brain cells at work? You are right, being a government-owned and taxpayer-funded institution, the CCP is accountable ultimately to the taxpayer and in this case CCP it seems was a vehicle or even enabler for offending the religious sensibility of majority of the taxpayer base. Surely a "artist/poet/activist" of your caliber can see this simple fact. You should have taken this opportunity to argue that if CCP will continue to push the frontiers of art dialogue in the Philippines, the Mideo Cruz incident is a great opportunity to privatize the CCP and continue its critical cultural mission without pressure from angered taxpayers who have every right to complain as their hard-earned taxes are funding something that offends their religious sensibilities. But naturally this point escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind and instead point out that a movie featuring Gael Garcia Bernal with equally offensive religious material was not treated withrnthe same attention as Poleteismo.rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Ang naturang pambabastos ba ay magpapabagsak sa matatag na institusyon ng Iglesia Katolika?" >> Again you missed the point. The Christian/Catholic nature of the offending art by Mr. Cruz is a mere indicental, the real nature of Mr. Cruz's shock art is to attach religion/personal belief itself. Mr. Cruz chose to target the Christian religion for the attention (in a predominantly Christian country, this is hard to miss) and the fact that when you offend Christians they complain in largely civilized manner as compared to, say, Muslims or Jews (well the Philippines has no ADF or Simon Wiesenthal Center so you won't know how this works). You go on to cite atheists, John Lennon and communists as those who sought to offend religion. I have to add one more group that you conveniently did not cite, the Nazis. Yes, the Nazisrnoffended the Jews in the 20th century and such was their hatred of Judaism and even Christianity (despite Hitler being raised Catholic) was that millions were stripped of their rights, turned into slaves then killed en masse. All because a few intolerant elite did not like Jews and Christians. Lets add here the Soviets which outlawed religion in Russia or Karl Marx, someone you quote quite liberally, who despite being a Jew was a rabid anti-semite and its no wonder why in Soviet Russia and East Germany--two states that adopted Marxism full blast--Jews were frequently persecuted. My point is intolerance of religion ends up in these inhuman conclusions. Please be cultivate a more civilized dissent on religion.rn rn rn"ARGUMENTO: Kalayaan ng pamamahayag vs. tahasang pambabastos sa paniniwala ng mas nakakarami?" >> Again you missed the opportunity to open a discussion on Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech and religion and instead reverted to yourrnpsudo-intellectual eliteness by bungling a quote from a deranged anti-semite whose political philosophy was responsible for a few billion people enslaved and hundred million deaths in the 20th century.

For instance, lets take animal crush videos, these are those sick videos where young puppies or cats are being crushed by a person's foot until they die. It is sickening to be sure but a recent US Supreme Court ruled (and it was led by the conservatives in the court) animal crush videos, while disturbing, are still legal and should form part of the right to free speech. Why? because any power by the state to limit such is the same as an arbitrary power by the state to, in fact, place a limit to speech and thought itself.

    Mideo Cruz has a art work with Christ head of Mickey Mouse, or somewhere Mickey Mouse is in a Christ art work made by him. This is plagiarism, because he copied the art idea from Alexander Savko, a Russian painter, whose artwork showed Christ with Mickey Mouse as his head.

Remember that Art itself is a big and vital influence of society! With those given the unique talent of it, carry it with responsibility not just with freedom. At tama, kung matapang talaga sya at free sya sa sining nya, why not try nya gawin sa Muslim relics yun? tingnan natin kung san sya pupulutin.

Yes, I can read Filipino, not that good but after the fifth attempt, I think I get what you were trying to say. I have a feeling that the whole Mideo Cruz-CCP-Poleteismo episode brought out the "artist/poet/activist" in you as evidenced by the various arguments you have ventured forth in your article.rnrnAllow me to get to where we (obviously) disagree...rnrnIn your comments on "ARGUMENTO: Paano kung may kumuha ng picture ng magulang mo at biglang sinalpakan ng kahoy na t*t* at mga gamit na condom?" I have to point out the difference between a picture of a person and a picture of a devotional subject. The former has limited meaning outside a person's family and circle of friends. While the latter has meaning to the rnreligionists who consider the picture of a devotional subject as important. And it is how you answered this first "Argumento" betrays your biases. I gather that there is a high possibility that you are intolerant of religion and I dare say it, especially intolerant of the Christian religion and to a much lesser extent of Islam, Buddhism, Judaism, etc. rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Ang Cultural Center of the Philippines ay isang pampublikong institusyon na pinopondohan ng buwis ng taumbayan. At hindi dapat ginagamit para sa kung ano-anong kabulastugan na tutuligsa sa pinakasagradong sentimiyento ng mga tao." >> Wow! was that a hint of some brain cells at work? You are right, being a government-owned and taxpayer-funded institution, the CCP is accountable ultimately to the taxpayer and in this case CCP it seems was a vehicle or even enabler for offending the religious sensibility of majority of the taxpayer base. Surely a "artist/poet/activist" of your caliber can see this simple fact. You should have taken this opportunity to argue that if CCP will continue to push the frontiers of art dialogue in the Philippines, the Mideo Cruz incident is a great opportunity to privatize the CCP and continue its critical cultural mission without pressure from angered taxpayers who have every right to complain as their hard-earned taxes are funding something that offends their religious sensibilities. But naturally this point escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind and instead point out that a movie featuring Gael Garcia Bernal with equally offensive religious material was not treated with rnthe same attention as Poleteismo. rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Ang naturang pambabastos ba ay magpapabagsak sa matatag na institusyon ng Iglesia Katolika?" >> Again you missed the point. The Christian/Catholic nature of the offending art by Mr. Cruz is a mere indicental, the real nature of Mr. Cruz's shock art is to attach religion/personal belief itself. Mr. Cruz chose to target the Christian religion for the attention (in a predominantly Christian country, this is hard to miss) and the fact that when you offend Christians they complain in largely civilized manner as compared to, say, Muslims or Jews (well the Philippines has no ADF or Simon Wiesenthal Center so you won't know how this works). You go on to cite atheists, John Lennon and communists as those who sought to offend religion. I have to add one more group that you conveniently did not cite, the Nazis. Yes, the Nazis rnoffended the Jews in the 20th century and such was their hatred of Judaism and even Christianity (despite Hitler being raised Catholic) was that millions were stripped of their rights, turned into slaves then killed en masse. All because a few intolerant elite did not like Jews and Christians. Lets add here the Soviets which outlawed religion in Russia or Karl Marx, someone you quote quite liberally, who despite being a Jew was a rabid anti-semite and its no wonder why in Soviet Russia and East Germany--two states that adopted Marxism full blast--Jews were frequently persecuted. My point is intolerance of religion ends up in these inhuman conclusions. Please be cultivate a more civilized dissent on religion.rnrnrn"ARGUMENTO: Kalayaan ng pamamahayag vs. tahasang pambabastos sa paniniwala ng mas nakakarami?" >> Again you missed the opportunity to open a discussion on Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech and religion and instead reverted to your rnpsudo-intellectual eliteness by bungling a quote from a deranged anti-semite whose political philosophy was responsible for a few billion people enslaved and hundred million deaths in the 20th century. (FYI Marx did not say "religion is the opium of the masses" but "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless rnconditions. It is the opium of the people.") What you should have argued (and this is not exclusive) is that while free speech is a right it is possible to offend unintentionally or otherwise and it is via active dialogue in society these views are debated and discussed. Maybe you could have defended why speech may or may not have limits? Or what constitutes speech? For instance, lets take animal crush videos, these are those sick videos where young puppies or cats are being crushed by a person's foot until they die. It is sickening to be sure but a recent US Supreme Court ruled (and it was led by the conservatives in the court) animal crush videos, while disturbing, are still legal and should form part of the right to free speech. Why? because any power by the state to limit such is the same as an arbitrary power by the state to, in fact, place a limit to speech and thought itself. Hence we must conclude that while Mr. Cruz has every right to do his shock art, he should also be mindful of the consequences of his art. Why? because ideas, Sir, have consequences.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Hindi puputok ang kontrobersyang ito kung hindi pinalaki ng media." >> Yes. Media loves scandal but not goody-goody stories. Now why is that?rnrnrn"ARGUMENTO: Kelangan pa ba ng senate investigation para sa isyung ito?" >> Well, my dear Mr. De Veyra, maybe it escapes your "artist/poet/activist" mind but the Senate can take up any topic under the sun. That's the way its rules are structured. Also, since the Senate also scrutinizes the budget of the CCP, it simply can't help itself but to interfere. rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Censorship ba ang nangyari sa exhibit sa CCP?" >> Let's see, the CCP voluntarily shut the exhibit down as it caved into public pressure. Did a government agency or official order them to shut it down? No. Did they agree to re-open the exhibit without Mr. Cruz's offending art? No. I think the censorship you are referring to is more of an illusion than something that can be justified by the facts.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Is it good art or bad art?" >> At least you got this somewhat right. But inconveniently for the psudo-intellectuals, the National Artist F. Sonil Jose alluded to it being uncivilized when he called it "immature".rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Subukan niya kayang gawin ‘yan sa mga Muslim, kay Mohammed at Allah? Tingnan natin kung hindi siya pugutan ng ulo." >> Aha! good point! and why is that? why is the anti-religion object of shock art always Christians? Of course your answer was a classic cop-out "Bawal ang mga imahe at lahat ng representasyon ng mga buhay na bagay sa Islam. Pansinin ang mga drawings sa Islamic art—puro patterns at kulay lang." You forget that Muslims forbid the mere drawing of the face of Mohammed and this was the basis for the Danish cartoon incident a few years back. How about the movie Fitna? where the movie showed how quotes from the Quran is inconsistent with violence in the Muslim world. Or what about the movie Submission, which showed the treatment of women in Islam? The director was gunned-down in broad daylight and the star (Ayaan Hirsi Ali) was persecuted? As an "artist/poet/activist" shouldn't you speak out about this when talking about this topic? Like I said, you coped-out.rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Akala ko ba ang Kristiyanismo ay isang relihiyon ng pagpapatawad at pag-unawa?" >> Well forgiveness starts with discernment then realization then admission. Nest is forgiveness and then restitution. So has Mr. Cruz even started any discussions with those he offended? or even recognized those he offended? rnrn"ARGUMENTO: Bakit hindi tayo ganito kabangis mag-react sa ibang bagay? Gaya ng mabagal na pag-usad ng Ampatuan Massacre trial? Gaya ng mga patong-patong na kaso ni GMA at asawa niya? Gaya ng sunod-sunod na nauungkat na kabulastugan sa PAGCOR? " >> Good point. Maybe you should lead the move to convince your fellow Filipinos not to vote the same oligarchs and landed politicians and their families in power. Maybe if you just took time to realize that solving or even starting to change the political system in the Philippines does not start by voting as President a scion of a powerful political clan. My dear Mr. De Veyra, it does not matter how smart you are unless you stop and think. rnrnrnBest,rnrnF. Bastiat

    Si Rizal noong mga huling taon niya ay isa siyang Freethinker, malaya na pagiisip ang uri ng pagktao niya sa mga huling mga taon niya. Sabi niya "ang kabanalan ay hindi nakukuha sa mahabang luhod, ang kabanalan ay hindi nakukuha sa mga bruwhaha ng simbahan, kundi ito ay nakukuha sa matinong pag iisip, sa matinong isip" hindi ibig sabihin Athiest si mokong. Kahit ako, ayaw ko ng mga bruwhaha ng simbahan na yan kaya nga hindi ako tumuloy sa theolohiya sa iskwelahan ng mga tigre. Sang ayon ako sa sinabi ni Dr. Alonzo Reolanda na ang kabanalan ay nasa balanse, tamang pag iisip, pero hindi ibig sabihin ay katulad ako ng mgs butiki at baboy damo na walang Dios. At hindi hipokrito na kunwari walang silang Dios at demonyo, eh meron namang kunsensya. wapak!

    Lumabas ang mga galit, pangungutya at paglibak ng mga taong umanoy nasa panig ng panginoon. nagbigay ng hatol sa mga obra at sining ng paglapastangan umano sa kanilang diyos. Hinatulan na ang may sala. Ayon sa kanila, DAPAT ITAKWIL AT IPAKO SA KRUS ANG ALAGAD NG SINING NA NANGAHAS YUMURAK SA KRISTIYANISMO! Nagkaisa silang lahat. Ang HATOL: IPAKO SA KRUS SI MIDEO CRUZ kasama ng kanyang mapangahas na obra.... Si Mideo Cruz na ang tanging kasalanan ay nangahas ipahayag ang kanyang malikot na imahinasyon... na ang tanging pagkakasala ay katulad din ng pagkakasala ni Kristo nang buong tapang nitong ipahayag at ipaglaban ang sariling paniniwala. rnrnAyon sa mga banal, dapat parusahan si Mideo Cruz sa kanyang kapangahasan... Sa kanyang pagkalapastangan... Hindi pa man ay may hatol na ang mga tao at ang simbahan... tulad din ng kung paanong daang tao ang hinatulan at binitay noong panahon ng "DARK AGES" sa sinumang magpapahayag ng taliwas sa paniniwala ng simbahan. Ang tawag sa mga taong may ibang paniniwala sa kabanalan ng simbahan ay mga demonyo, "witches", kampon ng kadiliman at kung anu ano pang paglalapit sa pangalan ng DEMONYO o ni LUCIFER.rnrnHIndi na kailangan pang mamatay ni Mideo Cruz para lang malaman niya kung siya ba ay pupunta sa impiyerno o sa langit. Hindi na siya dapat pang humarap sa diyos para alamin ang kanyang paroroonan; kung buhay na walang hanggang o buhay sa impiyerno. Sapagkat humatol na ang mga banal... na si Mideo Cruz ay walang puwang sa langit at bagkus ay dapat lamang tuluyang tumuloy sa Impyerno.rnrnOO, siguro nga ay banal ang mga naniniwala kay Kristo at sila lamang ang may karapatan na magsabi ng MALI at TAMA, ng gawang MAKADIYOS AT MAKA IMPIYERNO. rnrnHIndi na dapat pang antayin ang paghuhukom... hindi na dapat pang humarap sa diyos upang malaman kung saan ka nararapat batay sa iyong nagawa sa lupa.... SAPAGKAT dito pa lamang ay marunong nang humatol ang tao...rnrnIPAKO SA KRUS SI MIDEO CRUZ!!! katulad ng ginawa ng mga HUDYO KAY KRISTO. ang kanilang pagkakasala: NANGAHAS MAGPAHAYAG NG KANILANG PANINIWALA!rnrnNGAYON BUMATO ANG MALILINIS... NGAYON UNANG BUMATO ANG WALANG SALA.... tulad ng paghamon ni KRISTO sa kumukutya kay MAGDALENA.

"Nilagyan ng burat na kahoy ang mukha ng larawan ni Kristo" Ulitin mo nga sa isip mo, ulit ulitin mo, tama ba yan? Tukmol talaga ang angungulkol na Lourd na ito, lumalabas na ayos lang iyon sayo. Mararamdaman mo sa loob mo, sa sarii mo kung maganda ang likhang sining o hinde. Kung ang sining ay may kalidad, pinag isipan, tumutulak ng hangganan ng paglilikha, nagpapalaya ng isipan, nag bibigay inspirasyon. Eh yung ginawa ni Cruz? Inspirasyon sa mga kabataan? Humalik ka nalang sa puwet ng mga Aquino Lourd, halata na naman na maka Cory ka, isa ka rin pala sa mga biktima ng dilaw na media, akala ko pa naman orihinal ka, matatag, natitinag ka rin pala at nasisilaw ng kulay dilaw.

    Itong si Lourd na ito maka Aquino din pala ang tamulmol na ito, maka Cory din pala ang umal na ito. Sa una ay ayos, bilib sana ako kase nga Redio Active...poetry poetry, tapos nalaman kong maka Aquino din pala ang ukay na to, nawalan ako ng gana. Sumisipsip kaba sa mga Aquino? humahalik ka ba sa puwet nila? o kailangan mo lang gawin para may pambili ng extra rice? Tapos sa tono mo parang ayos sayo ang ginawa ni Cruz? experimento ba yun? ang tawag doon ay "papansin", hindi art. Alam niya sa una palang na puputaktihin siya ng media kaya ginawa niya iyon para lang sumikat yang turak na yan. Ituloy mo lang ang pagsipsip mo sa mga Aquino, ayos yan, baka mawirikan ka rin ng mga nakaw na yaman nila.

    Dapat ilagay sa isip ng mga alagad ng sining na pagdating sa pagpapahayag ng kanilang obra ay maging maingat lalo na at ang paksa ng kanyang obra ay tungkol sa relihiyon…..sa kasaysayan, ang ilang mga taga-sunod ng isang relihiyon ay nagiging malupit, mapangahas at hindi mapagpatawad kapag ang kanilang paniniwala ay nasaling o naalipusta ayon sa kanilang interpretasyon kahit pa sabihin na ang aral na itinuturo ng kanyang relihiyon ay pagpapatawad, kapayapaan at pang-unawa. Kuha n’yo mga alagad ng sining?!

    Mga Bleeding Hearts,rnrnHindi niyo pa rin maintindihan na hindi ang HesuKristo niyo ang pinatatamaan. KAYO. Kayong hindi na naman umaayon ang galaw o diwa sa tinuturo. Sunday believers, mga umiyak nung napanood ang Passion of the Christ pero matapos ang lahat, babalik din sa mga normal na ginagawa. Bakit si Kristo pa ang ginamit na imahe at hindi mga obispo na pinatatamaan din sana ng artist? Bakit, yung mga obispo ba yung sinasamba niyo? Hindi naman sila yung simbolo ng Christianity. Pwede siguro kapag ang pinapakita ay ang simbolo ng pagtatambal ng relihiyon at politiko, pero hindi ito ang ipinakita. Gusto ipakita ng artist ang mga nakikita niya sa kultura ng relihiyon sa Pilipinas.rnrnSa madaling salita? Eto ang mga nakita niya sa inyo. Kaya masakit siyang tanggapin kasi pikon tayo.

Pero ang gusto nya talagang ipahiwatig is that he despises God and does not believe in his existence. Gnayan talaga ang mga anak ng unggoy. Asal Hayop!

    Kung ang pangkarapatan at ang moral ang pinagusapan. sapat lang ang sundin ang pagkarapatan pang tao kasi may protection ang buhay sa bawt isa. Kung ang pang moral ang susundin natin... sos maria joseph utang na loob huwag na. Kasi walang katapusan pangungusap yan baka mabiktima kapa ng ipako sa cruz.. Simple and meaningful the freedom of expression is a right for anybody. The moral has no meaning it only baffles in so many people's mind gaya nang senado kung anu ano ang mga contention lumalabas sa bibig nila. Ang mga tao na may say yong hindi nakikialam or(nakikiulam) sa unting bagay na pag usapan na walang hanganan....There are more important issue to tackle na dapat pangkarapatang pang tao. Ay naku naman Senado kayo nalang kayo nalang ipako sa cruz kasama yan Fsionel.....yun lang.

    Kung tutuusin ang mga imahe naman na kinikilala natin sa Katolisismo ay pawang mga representasyon lamang. Hindi naman yun ang mga tunay na itsura ni Hesus at Maria. At dahil representasyon lang sila, walang magagawa ang sinuman upang sirain ang mga mabuting aral nila. Kung tunay kang Katoliko di mo na dapat hayaan na magpaapekto sa gantong kabalbalan. At, tandaan natin na ang Krus ay instrumento ng torture. Kung tutuusin napaka-grotesque isipin na dumadasal tayo sa isang kagamitan na pampatay. In a way, medyo twisted din ang pag gamit ng imagery ng Catholicism. Food for thought lang. rnrnTOLERANCE WILL ULTIMATELY BENEFIT US ALL.

    Let us not justify the wrong doings of other people... One of the best gift that was given to us was the gift of freedom... but let's not over used it. Lahat ng SOBRA ay masama... Ou mdaming ndi magandang nangyayare sa bansa natin... madaming issue (as you Mr Author menstioned) that needs intensive attentions especially by our Government... but why add up to THESE controversies? Tau tau rin ang nag-papahiya sa sarili natin... Ndi porke indi maganda ang nangyayare sa paligid mo, you're excuse to do whatever you want... Again, WHY ADD UP? Instead of helping? Is this what you called freedom of the art? I dnt think so. let's respect each other instead of pulling each other down...

    I've read the whole article... all i can say is... "let us not JUSTIFY the wrong doings of other people..." We all know that sh*t happens everyday in our country, may it be in POLITICS or on our own GOVERNMENT... The least thing that we can do it to do what is right and not make things worst... We Filipinos are already shameful of what is happening in our country, so why add up? I guess what I'm trying yo say here is, let's not always play "THE VICTIM". let's do our share and let's stop pulling each other down...

    Sa tingin ko, RESPETO ang lesson na makukuha natin mula dito sa pangyayaring to. Respeto sa relihiyon at respeto din sa paniniwala at pananaw ng tao sa paggamit ng sining bilang form of expression.rnrnPero seriously, hindi naman ako sarado katoliko, pero na-offend pa rin ako sa mga ginawa niya. Diba religious items yan na dapat ginagalang ng mga tao regardless kung atheist man sila o hindi. Yun nga lang, OA ang reaksyon ng mga tao. Hindi na dapat pa umabot sa ganito. Pinasara lang dapat or pinatigil. Tapos, TAPOS na. Ganun lang.

    Only Mideo knows kung anuman ang kanyang layunin nung mga unang araw ng kanyang exhibit. Noong nagkaroon ng ingay, natural lamang na humanap sya ng palusot upang i-justify ang kanyang sining. PARA SA AKIN...wala syang lusot. IPAKO sa krus habang may mga langgam na kumakagat , susugat sa kanyang kalamnan. Budburan ng kalamansi at asin ang mga dugo na aagos sa katawan at pagdaka'y ipalinis sa mga asong kalye ang kanyang katawan. Doon, mapapatawad kita mideo...sa ngalan ng AMA, ANAK at ESPIRITU SANTO...
