Ganesha Didn’t Impress Fillios

In the comments section, Starbucks99 offers a link to a comment made by Coeur d'Alene council candidate Chris Fillios on the Kootenai County Constitutional Party site re: the 2011 Ganesha controversy. Fillios was responding to a Constitutionalist post in opposition to the controversial public are:

"Well said Constitutionalists! As for our panthestic or atheistic friends, may I remind you that while art is in the eyes of the beholder, not everyone is qualified to behold. Example: when Michaelangelo’s master asked him why he was so determined to paint nudes, the artist responsed, 'Because I want to see man as God does.' To which his master replied, 'But you’re not God'! I trust you get the message."
