MCB not consulted

The BBC has more quotes from both the artist and the MCB on the Tate’s decision not to display “God is Great” (see below).

Apparently, the MCB felt a little bit left out of the decision-making process. Poor darlings:

We would have preferred to have been consulted by Tate Britain before the decision was taken to remove John Latham’s piece.

Sometimes presumptions are incorrectly made about what is unacceptable to Muslims and this can be counter-productive.

Come to think of it, MWW would have preferred to have been consulted by the BBC before the decision was taken to ask the self-important clowns* of the MCB for their opinion about anything. Don’t they realise how important and representative of our community we are?

    There is some truth here.

    More censorship is in fact cause by people being “offended” on the behalf of others, than those others themselves actually want, and they have to bear the brunt of the backlash. The “do gooders” are in fact causing more trouble than enough.

    A classic example was when a primary school in Batley banned the story of the Three Little Pigs in school on the grounds that Muslims would be offended by it. Which in fact they wouldn’t be.
