GPA attacks Christians

Advert by the Gay Police Association: in the name of the father (sic)
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!

Having endured a lifetime of abusive, hurtful and self-esteem shattering name-calling like
"rusty", "coppernob", "Duracell" etc. and having been discriminated against by potential employers who assume I have a "fiery" temper or am related to the likes of Neil Kinnock, Cilla Black or Chris Evans.....
I find your use of the word "rusty" in this context unpleasant and anti-ginger.
I am therefore reporting you to the Ginger Thought Police and specifically our local branch of the Ginger Police Association......
Expect a call from Constable Savage who is not exactly renowned for the fineries of social etiquette like knocking on doors.

Oh! and it's the Holy Bible, not the Bible.

Oh! Also please note that the English Language word "Fair" has now been hijacked by the World Ginger Group [WGG] and cannot now be used in any other context except to describe a person of fair skin and ginger hair. Edict per sanctum bolukum!

Thanks, weggis. That's exactly the sort of comment I need to ginger me up.
Did you know that Asterix the Gall has been outselling the Bible (holy or otherwise) for some years now? Maybe that hokum The Da Vinci Code will knock him off the top spot.
