Art or hate crime: you decide

Which of the following are art and which are hate crimes:
  • Cow dung splattered on an image of the Virgin Mary
  • A statue of Jesus on the cross immersed in urine
  • A Koran placed in a urinal
Liberal opinion is that the first is art worthy of display at the government subsidized Brooklyn Museum. The second, Andre Serrano's Piss Christ, is also art worthy of an NEA grant. The last, however, was found at Pace University in NY and is being investigated as a hate crime with the police looking to make an arrest.
