The sculptor Terence Koh is currently exhibiting a statue of Christ at an art gallery in Britain. The statue shows Christ with an erection. The link below tells the story, but you'll have to google the statue yourself if you want to see it. http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/visual_arts/article3137653.ece I don't normally get particularly upset about the way in which people exploit Christianity for their own profit or to increase their media exposure. In some cases, I'm probably far less rabid than others. 3 years ago, I went to one of the early productions of 'Jerry Springer - The Opera'. A lot of Christians got all bent out of shape about that particular show, but I thought it was a hugely funny and brilliantly written piece of satire. God forbid Christians should have a sense of humor. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/tv_and_radio/4161109.stm But for some reason, I have a big problem with this statue. Ive already read articles that blather on about If this were a statue of Mohammed there would be a fatwah calling for the murder of Mr Koh. Well, its not a statue of Mohammad and Christianity doesnt issue fatwahs so Im not even going to dignify such predictable but ignorant comments with an answer. Is it something to do with the fact that the sculptor is gay? I dont think so. I think it probably comes down to the fact that I believe the work is without merit. It adds nothing, but it does detract. It insults purely for the sake of being insulting, being controversial. A statement by the art gallery reads "Koh is trying to explain all the things which have meant something to him. It is a sort of mausoleum". So the exhibition is a "mausoleum" and the "explanation" is the erection. Maybe someone artistically-minded can explain that to me in a way that isn't complete bollocks.
