GPA attacks Christians
Here's the latest in controversial adverts. The Gay Police Association (don't laugh!) recently published an advert showing a Bible with a splash of blood, its message, put simply, that Christians are poof-bashers. This has got right up the nose of the Christian Police Association, whose view is that it's okay to be gay so long as you don't practise it, a stance which annoys the Gay Fuzz. To stir things even more furiously, the Reverend George Hargreaves complained about the ad., called the GPA "Christianphobic" and has prompted a Metropolitan Police investigation into whether the advert is a "faith crime" or not! Religiosity and homosexuality are both to be found in the World Health Organization Classification of Mental Diseases, so both sides in this dispute are on unstable ground. It's a case of the pot calling the kettle ... er ... rusty. The important thing as far as Coxsoft Art is concerned is the advert: what a powerful way to get your message across! Shocking the punters is allegedly what modern art is all about. If this advert is a "faith crime", then Big Brother and the Thought Police have taken over in the UK. Next they'll be arresting WHO officials for having classified religiosity as a mental disease!
