I think religious people are acting crazy as they know religion is dying.. FAST, so religious people act like cornered beast clinging on to their fake magic stories and false hope of eternal life in mega-luxury with the master of the universe.
An exhibition presenting an alternative take on Biblical passages has opened in Belgrade amid protests from thousands of religious activists. The city had to cancel the gay pride parade fearing there won’t be enough policemen to keep order in the city.
Religious activists have taken to the streets of Belgrade to protest against the opening of Ecce Homo – a controversial display by Swedish artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin.
Photographs featured at the display recreate Biblical stories such as the Epiphany, The Last Supper and Calvary. However instead of traditional depictions of Christ and the Apostles visitors see rather unusual characters – gay people and transsexuals dressed in revealing and provocative outfits.
In the Last Supper Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin presents Jesus dressed in a lady’s dress and wearing high-heeled shoes while the Apostels wear women’s underwear and BDSM costumes.
Around two thousand policemen were present to avoid violence breaking out, as thousands took to the streets to protest.
The head of the Serbian Orthodox Church Patriarch Irinej has already spoken out against the show, calling on state authorities to ban the “blasphemous” display, Serbian Vesti Online reports.
