At the Big Fresno Fair art exhibits, I and others were outraged that such a presentation of a terrorist titled “Jihad” (a Muslim call for the killing of Christians) was even allowed to be entered and put on public display.
Then to award second place as a validation and endorsement for such a message is purely in contempt for all Christians alike. The cell phones depicted in the picture background are common triggers used by terrorists for improvised explosive devices.
When I inquired who the judges were, I was told they were college art professors – guess that explains it. I would hope many other fairgoers express their disdain for such exhibits. This is not the message we want in our community. It is nothing more than a message of hate condoned by the Fresno fair board.
