The Met Gala Ridiculed Christianity – Why Don’t They Pick On Islam Next Year?

There must have been a really good reason for them to choose this particular religion as the ‘theme’.

They could have picked Islam which has been so popular with the Hollywood elites of late.

Wouldn’t that make the best anti-Trump statement?

Perhaps the organizers had read this article in the Independent in August:

…in places like Saudi Arabia, of course, wearing the abaya is not a choice but a legal necessity, making it frankly insulting when white celebrities co-opt it at will.

No, apparently that wasn’t the reason.

Or was it?

The organizer, Andrew Bolton, spoke to the Observer and explained how the theme for this year’s gala was chosen:

The genesis of the exhibition came about five years ago when I was hoping to focus on five religionsIslam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and Catholicism. The idea was to do site-specific interventions that represented those belief systems in galleries in the Met. But [it became] really clear that about 80 percent of the material that I was looking at was inspired by Catholicism. It makes sense, because of the western tradition’s imagistic history and the storytelling tradition.

It was beginning to look imbalanced. I was worried that it might be misinterpreted, that the other four religions might seem like tokens. And when the Vatican came on board, it made the imbalance even greater. So I decided to focus on Catholicism, because the body of material was stronger.

Oh, yes, kiddies, the Vatican did approve this.

They even supplied some art including historical fashions for the exhibition.

Piers Morgan points out that the idea of doing this with Islam or Judaism would never fly.

Next year’s Met Gala is going to have an ‘Islam’ theme.

Yes, guests in 2019 will be encouraged to wear skimpy, provocative dresses that ‘celebrate’ the Prophet Mohammad, Islamic clothing including hijabs and burqas, and the Koran.

I can also reveal that the 2020 Met Gala will have a ‘Jewish’ theme.

Yes, a bunch of celebrities and models will be posing for the world’s paparazzi dressed in all manner of Jewish attire and regalia, including dressing up as Rabbis and wearing kippahs.

Oh, wait.

Neither of these things is actually going to happen.

Morgan asks for a modicum of respect for Catholics — and Christians in general.

I know many people don’t believe in any God or religion, let alone Catholicism, and I respect that.

All I ask in return is for my beliefs not to be rudely disrespected.

Just as I always respect other religions even if I don’t believe in what they represent.

To me, this year’s Met Gala crossed a line and was openly, brazenly disrespectful.

He went on to say that it’s offensive for flesh-baring celebrities to don Catholic imagery.

There is a massive difference between seeing religious artefacts tastefully and respectfully laid out in a museum and seeing them stuck on some flesh-flaunting celebrity’s head at a party.

The night was titled ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and the stars and their designers threw themselves into the theme with maximum creative gusto.

He said all of those celebrities knew exactly what they were doing.

The bottom line is that the Met Gala would never even consider an Islamic or Jewish theme for its big night.

The organisers know full well that if they did, they’d be closed down within hours of it finishing.

They chose Catholicism, and Christianity, because they calculated that we wouldn’t mind as much.

Well, I do mind.

And I think a lot of other Catholics and Christians will mind, too.

Those celebrities who took part in this offensive fiasco need to ask themselves one question: ‘Would I have gone dressed as a Muslim or a Jew if I were not Muslim or Jewish?’

If the obvious answer is ‘No, of course not’ then they should all be ashamed of themselves.

Morgan called out specific celebrities for their sacrilege.

It really did get offensive really fast.

You’d think that with all the hullabaloo over a Utah teen wearing a Chinese dress to her prom these celebs would be more sensitive.

But no.

And the majority of the Media (D) lavished praise on their ‘divine’ fashion sense.

Check it out:

Arguably, the worst was Sarah Jessica Parker’s headdress with a Nativity scene:

Katy Perry for some reason dared to show her face in her costume.

At least she didn’t show up in a habit to further disrespect the last living Sister of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary that she’s been locked in a court battle with. Perry wants to convert a former convent into a new home. Perhaps out of respect for the recently-deceased Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, Perry should have stayed home.

Suing nuns to turn their convent into your luxury home doesn’t make you an angel, hon.

Are you sick of celebrities and culture in general intolerant of your Christian worldview?

Then you need this:

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.

It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.

Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.

What is driving them so berzerk?

Looks like we’ve found an answer:

A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…

That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.

Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.

You can get the guy’s version here.
