Holy Shit!

Italian LGBT group sparks outrage by creating gay sex-filled version of The Last Supper to advertise event

The picture used by DiverCity, an LGBT organisation in Salerno, in south Italy, features Jesus and his 12 disciples in various forms of undress, kissing and even engaged in oral sex.
Conservative political parties have expressed outrage at the artwork, especially since it was created to promote a meeting which honours Holy Thursday.
Also known as Maundy Thursday, today is the day Christians commemorate the Last Supper, and DiverCity is doing the same – just with cocktails.
Fabio Mammone, deputy coordinator of Forza Italia – the second incarnation of a centre-right party led by Silvio Berlusconi, four-time Prime Minister of Italy – called for “the cancellation of the evening”.
Raffaele Adinolfi, the local representative of Il Popolo della Famiglia (The People of the Family) – a conservative party founded last month after same-sex unions were legalised – said the event represented the “killing of good taste”.
Adinolfi, whose party is against same-sex marriage, abortion, divorce and surrogacy, called DiverCity “some profanity animator of youth nightlife” whose defence of being “alternative, not blasphemous” he said was “incomprehensible.”
“We at Il Popolo della Famiglia can only publicly express our outrage and invite all of Salerno, believers and nonbelievers, to do the same,” he added.
But Emanuele Avagliano, an organiser of DiverCity, defended the event at Caffe Verdi today, and quelled any talk of it being called off.
Writing on Facebook, he said: “We want to reaffirm our respect for others’ opinions, but equally we reiterate with force and conviction our freedom to live and enjoy ourselves as we see fit.”
Avagliano said the group wanted to emphasise that the picture was “intended to be neither blasphemous, offensive, nor disrespectful”.
“That said, we are sorry to note that ‘Il Popolo della Famiglia’ again, having no themes available, has used LGBT character arguments at the expense of the many gay men, lesbian girls and transgender persons”.
He added that “we invite all, then, to participate on Thursday with even more strength and belief than usual, to reclaim an area of freedom, a space of expression and entertainment essential for gay boys and girls and trans people of our city”.
Gay marriage is not legal in Italy, where same-sex unions were finally recognised after a long uphill battle on 5th June 2016. The Roman Catholic Church is the largest and the most influential Christian denomination in Italy. It is opposed to any recognition of same-sex relationships and has repeatedly blocked the introduction of such civil legislation.

On notera que, dans certains pays musulmans (Arabie saoudite, Pakistan, Afrique subsaharienne, Iran, etc.), le blasphème est puni par la peine de mort. Les islamistes ne se privent d'ailleurs pas de châtier dans les pays occidentaux ceux qu'ils considèrent comme des blasphémateurs. Salman Rushdie en sait quelque chose... Les religions sont une plaie.

J'ai ma formule à moi, j'vous la donne, elle vaut c'quelle vaut, les religions monothéistes, la pire chose que l'homme a inventé ! Le début est de Sylvie Jolie, le reste est de moi.
Texte intégral de Syvie (une icône gay), le cinéma ? Mais c'est épatant, J'ai ma formule à moi, j'vous la donne, elle vaut c'quelle vaut, chef d'oeuvre, pas chef d'oeuvre, chef d'oeuvre, tout le monde y va, les parents, les enfants les grands-parents, pas chef d'oeuvre, on ignore, on passe outre, en un mot, on s'en tape !
Pour le fun, c'est samedi, ça n'empêche pas que les religions monothéistes sont la pire des choses !

Je ne me joins pas à votre cortège de louanges à l'égard des religions , la mienne reposant d'abord sur le respect dont Voltaire se fit le chantre" nous ne sommes pas d'accord mais je me battrais pour que tu puisses l'exprimer en toute liberté " ; en fait il y a pire que les religions quelles qu'elles soient c'est l'attrait de l'argent et de la possession du bien d'autrui et cela a prévalu pendant toute l'Antiquité (une cinquantaine de siècles quand même) et puis quelles ont été les religions à l'origine des guerres de cent ans,14-18, 39-45, russo-japonaises, franco-allemandes, Iran-Irak, ? ah bien sur il y eut les croisades, les guerres de religions, mais bientôt ne devra t'on pas pour être politiquement correct , éviter de parler de Charles Martel?
P S je connais des auteurs qui ont dessiné des scènes et cènes bien plus blasphématoires à connotations biblico religieuses, nommés entre autres, Franquin, Gotlib et Lauzier , quand aux blagues j'en connais trop que pour pouvoir les citer ici!
