Ecce Homo – All This Over A Few Art Photos!

The last supper

This is one of the images in that was displayed in Belgrade, Serbia, called Ecce Homo, featuring the work of the Swedish artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin. The images are challenging to accepted Christian concepts but hardly OTT blasphemous.

But they caused quite a stir in the Balkan capital as written this article ­Blasphemous’ display enrages thousands in Belgrade. According to this article the reaction was large and nasty.

Around two thousand policemen were present to avoid violence breaking out, as thousands took to the streets to protest

and

The city had to cancel the gay pride parade fearing there won’t be enough policemen to keep order in the city

This is the artist who caused all the controversy

Personally I think that these religious nutters need to grow up. Are these images really anything more than one persons opinionated take on the subject of Christianity? I for one do not want to live in in a world where something so harmless causes such reactions and the thought that this is happening in Europe is sickening. I cannot say that I like the type of images exhibited but that just means that I would not go to the gallery. There are more important things to protest about.

  1. And these same protesters are probably the same ones who can’t figure out why some Muslims got upset with the Utube video

    • The stupidity of religious extremism knows no difference between creed and belief system. Unfortunately fundamentalists are found amongst all religious groups including atheism (my choice). I just hope that I never fall into the trap of becoming one of these idiots.
