Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile on Tuesday lectured an official of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) regarding their decision to allow the controversial exhbit "Kulô " to be displayed inside their premises.

"It's the Cultural Center of the Philippines, not the Cultural Center of anybody. To assault the people, the sensibilities of people believing in something... I don't think that is part of the function of the CCP," Enrile told CCP president Dr. Raul Sunico during Tuesday's Senate finance committee hearing on the proposed budget of the CCP and other executive offices.

Among the works displayed in Kulô was Mideo Cruz's mixed-media collage called "Poleteismo," which touched off vehement protests from Catholic church leaders and politicians for juxtaposing religious images with clowns, Mickey Mouse ears, and a bright red penis.

Enrile, however, said the CCP should balance what's being exhibited against the "sensibilities" of the population.

"If you do that to the Muslim, if you do something like that, I don't think you'll be pardoned," he said.
