Soooooooooooo, transgressive, man.
Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art is hosting an exhibition. Supposedly allowing gay, lesbian and transgendered people to "write themselves back into the Bible" it has resulted in a Bible being defaced with obscene messages. The Holy Father isn't happy according to the Daily Mail, though I suspect it's more likely to be a curial official. I'm not aware of His Holiness taking a keen interest in Glasgow's Culture and Sport Department.
The sh[OUT] programme also includes the charmingly entitled ORIFICES exhibition. It's supported by Amnesty (surprise, surprise) Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Executive. Your tax money in action.
Thanks guys. Where do I get a rebate?
I think the idea that we should start saying "this wouldn't happen to the Koran" gives the wrong impression. Everyone knows modern artists are gutless yellow-bellies with a built-in cultural cringe regarding Islam. But they want to be taken seriously.
We either ignore them or, better still, laugh at them.
They really hate that.
