God’s nob case adjourned till September

<b>Semi censored</b>: Koh's Jesus statue, with the knee-high penis, offends Christians

Semi censored: Koh's Jesus statue, with the knee-high penis, offends Christians - therefore it must not be seen be anybody

The case against the Baltic art gallery, which we reported on in July, had its first hearing yesterday at Gateshead Magistrates Court. It was adjourned until September 23, when it will be heard at Crown Court.

Emily Mapfuwa, of Brentwood Essex, is bringing the private prosecution on the grounds that the statue was likely to harass, alarm or distress people who viewed it. It is not clear whether she visited the gallery herself, or if she is taking offence by proxy. She is supported by the Christian Legal Centre, which claims it

believes in freedom of expression but this statue served no other purpose than to offend Christians and to denigrate Christ.

A spokesman for the Baltic said:

Baltic denies the allegations that have been made by Ms Mapfuwa and will vigorously defend itself in court.

    This ‘Case’ shouldn’t even be dignified with a hearing.
    If the existence of a tiny statue with a disproportionate penis that one must pay to see is enough to cause people distress and alarm then they should have their medication doubled.

    On the plus side, Stephen Green will likely soon be seizing the publicity op with both hands and continuing his downward spiral with more incompetent rants.

    Does it say anywhere in the gospels how big Jesus’ dick was? I thought not.

    Now the story’s in the Guardian – I hope Emily Mapfuwa managed to get a good deal with the gallery, such as a percentage of sales.
