Er, not. Â A publicly funded “Art-Exhibition” encourages people to deface the Bible. They used a Bible instead of the Koran. Expect to see thousands of enraged Christians call for the killing of homosexuals! Â Expect to see hordes of “fundamentalist Christians” run amok and burn every homo-hangout in town! Waiting……
Andrew BoltÂ â€“ Friday, July 24, 09 )
It’s curious that the sacred text of onlyÂ oneÂ of the two faiths behind the exhibition was available for defacing:
A publicly funded exhibition is encouraging people to deface the Bible in the name of art â€” and visitors have responded with abuse and obscenity. The show includes a video of a woman ripping pages from the Bible and stuffing them into her bra, knickers and mouth.
The open Bible is a central part of Made in God’s Image, an exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art (Goma) in Glasgow. By the book is a container of pens and a notice saying: “If you feel you have been excluded from the Bible, please write your way back into it.” … The exhibition has been created by the artists Anthony Schrag and David Malone,Â in association with organisations representing gay Christians and Muslims.
So why did these brave gays not also offer a Koran for scribbling critiques? It’s not as if gays couldn’t have a bone to pick with theÂ faith that inspires some regimes to do thisÂ to young men just like them:
So why no Koran?
Robert Spencer has an excellent point:
from the Tundra Tabloids
“Leftists don’t believe their own rhetoric about Christianity and Islam being equally likely to incite believers to violence.”
Think about it, Muslims, Leftists and other apologists for Islam like to draw an equivelence between Islam and Christianity, in that both have an equal propensity to incite its followers to commit acts of violence. But when push comes to shove, the default religion to mock and deface…is both Christianity and Judaism.
The Tundra Tabloids is remindedÂ of a verbal exchangeÂ in the 2004 documentary “Jenin: Massacring Truth”. Britain’s Political Cartoon Society director, Tim Benson and the documentarist, Martin Himel, discussing the award winning cartoon of Ariel Sharon eating an Arab baby.
Himel:Â “Why, in all these [British cartoons], don’t we see maybe [Yasser] Arafat eating babies?”Benson:Â “Maybe Jews don’t issue fatwas.”Himel:Â “What do you mean by that?”Benson:Â “Well, if you upset an Islamic or Muslim group, as you know, fatwas can be issued by Ayatollahs and such-like. And maybe it’s at the back of each cartoonist’s mind that they could be in trouble if they do so.”
That was, and still is, an astute observation, even for many of us that deal with these issues on a day to day basis, but even more so for those who are completely ignorant of the vast differences between other faiths and the Islamic death cult. Robert Spencer does an excellent service in highlighting the thinking of the short sighted Left.Â KGS
