  1. Anything which upsets the repulsive religious clerics can only be a good thing.

    Well done to the artist.

    1. Meanwhile……….

      No uproar about polio vaccination teams being executed by the taliban.

  2. Cue the over the top shouting, screaming and burning effigies of the artist and all others concerned with the project.

    1. Plus some bystanders who aren’t even involved getting killed in the mayhem.

      Just another day in Pakistan then.

    What can I say? We’ve said it all before. This tedious whining of the overtly religious idiots will lead to well orchestrated, politically twisted, rioting by the illeducated masses. It’s now a regular way of scoring political points with a show of strength.
    Although it is prevelant, religion is a regularly used tool with the Counries political parties. Christian and Jewish religious leaders have been working together with Islamic clerics and bigoted politicians to strengthen anti-gay views throughout the world. This is just another leaf in the chapter.

  4. Besides all the comments above I don’t find these pictures very erotic. I can’t see what these religious people are moaning about.

    1. Well the victorians were so repressed that they found table legs erotic.

    Have a wee word with the odious Damian Thompson. The homophobic little prick can be found on Twitter @holysmoke

    Ironic isn’t it.. they can be completely homophobic and spew bigotry yet them, themselves that are acting like bloomin drama queens!!

  7. Doesn’t take much to whip them up into a froth, does it? I must be weird to feel that strongly about something so silly.

  8. They all need to sit on their hands and wait for Allah him/her/itself to pass judgement; not a SINGLE Muslim should raise his hand in anger to do harm but instead rely SOLELY on their deity to intervene.

    I mean, why does the/a god of the WHOLE FUCKING UNIVERSE need help?

    If nothing divinely supernatural happens, then they need to chill.

  9. Even if they don’t agree with it, is it really worth starting violence over a painting? What a waste of oxygen these people are.

  10. Until we end the religious conditioning of young people, there can only ever be hatred and war in the world. We could begin by removing religious education from the school timetable.

  11. WOW, I’m shocked that this art got as far as being shown at all!

  12. I would just like to add to this record that a global leaderboard of worldwide searches of “gay porn” “gay sex” and “shemale” were released recently.

    Pakistan ranked #1

    In the whole. wide. world.

  13. Art – in Pakistan? Books – in Pakistan? Pull the other one!
