The Church of Scotland said it condemned any sacrilegious act, while a spokesman for the Catholic Church said: “One wonders whether the organisers would have been quite as willing to have the Koran defaced.”
That is exactly what I was thinking as I read this story:
A Bible has been defaced with abuse and obscenities as part of a publicly-funded art exhibition that allows visitors to write comments on a copy of the text.
I'm sure the people who did this feel quite smug.
A contributor wrote on the first page of Genesis: “I am Bi, Female & Proud. I want no god who is disappointed in this.”
That's OK, honey. Write that in a Koran, if you can find a publicly funded place to do so; I'm sure Allah and his followers won't mind your rebuke, either. It's not like his followers will push a wall over onto you or throw you off a roof or anything.
I wish people would show genuine bravery sometimes, and not pick on the people least likely to fight back.
