-Scottish Art Exhibition Invites Gays to Deface a Copy of the Bible.

by Dr. D ~ July 28th, 2009

image In the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow, Scotland, there is an exhibit that is part of the ‘Made In God’s Image’ exhibition where visitors are provided with marking pens and allowed to write in a Bible on display. The original intention was for gays and transsexuals who felt left out of religion to "write their way back in" to the holy book—write their own scriptures.

However, many have taken the opportunity to abuse and defame the Holy Scriptures instead. According to the article, here are a few examples that can be shared:

One person wrote: “This is all sexist pish, so disregard it all,” while another wrote: "Mick Jagger and David Bowie belong in here," and another described the book as "the biggest lie in human history".

Some remarks were simply offensive, with one person writing "—- the Bible".

The message "I am Bi, Female & Proud. I want no god who is disappointed in this,” was written on the first page of Genesis.

One minister from the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) who co-sponsored the interactive event was unpleasantly surprised by some of the responses:

"I had hoped people would show respect for the Bible"

Oh Yes—the Pope condemned the exhibit as "disgusting and offensive".

Response: I am with the Pope on this one. Can any of you imagine what would happen if this was a Koran instead of a Bible? Blood would have been flowing in the Gallery and in the streets of Glasgow for sure.            *Top
