Again, the christian faith has been cheapened and the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow has invited people to deface the bible. As per BBC News, “Jane Clarke, herself a Christian, had said she wanted people who felt marginalised to be able to write their stories back into the Bible.”
As a result the Stop Defacing the Bible website
came about as a result of and installation at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow, which openly invite people to write on and in the Holy Bible (As seen left). All Christians of all denominations consider Holy Indeed we consider this the inspired Word of God and an insult to faith.
Ill Conceived idea
The exhibition was ill conceived idea. Collectively, Christians were not properly consulted on this issue, neither proper consideration given to the offense it would cause.
The Wide Issues
This in itself raises wider issues about our society:
• How can this form of expression be deemed as acceptable within a country which was built on Christian values?
• Is it ok to publically insult the Christian faith?
• What is the state of leadership that does not call an immediate stop to this particular ‘type’ of expression?
•Is there an underline agenda by the people who put on the exhibition, or a misjudged concept?
• What message does this send out wider public about how to treat people of faith who follow God?
We would like all Christians to join our petition. Once collated, we intend to put forward our collective disapproval to our countries leaders, for the immediate removal of this exhibition.”
If this was the Koran, we all know what the uproar would be from the muslim community. How much more should we stand up for the one and only true God?
