Gay Muslims Want You To Deface The Bible

bible2IT is artistic to deface the Bible. Gay Muslims say it is: 

A publicly funded exhibition is encouraging people to deface the Bible in the name of art — 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.

And the word tasted good:

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, in association with organisations representing gay Christians and Muslims.

Because gay Muslims are persecuted by the Church?

A spokesman for the Catholic Church said: “One wonders whether the organisers would have been quite as willing to have the Koran defaced.”

Answer: no. Want to know why? Because the Bible and its believers are a softer touch:

Two gay teenagers were publicly executed in Iran on 19 July 2005 for the ‘crime’ of homosexuality.


Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference… Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged…

Not that there are any gays in Iran… anymore…
