Paralympics opens with a Big Bang (Theory) then theorises modesty out of existence!

A large replica of a controversial sculpture by an equally controversial sculptor was included in the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games. The sculptor in question is Marc Quinn and the statue in question is entitled Alison Lapper Pregnant. She is disabled and, when she posed for this strange man, she was eight months pregnant, unmarried, and stark naked! The statue was unveiled in 2005 and was on display in Trafalgar Square until late 2007.
Marc Quinn is a most disturbing ,frightening and surely abnormal, individual. In 1991, he unveiled another controversial and extremely disturbing sculpture. On that occasion, his “work” was a refrigerated cast of his own head made with nine pints of his own blood! He called his monstrousity “Self”!  He obviously loves to shock and court controversy.

When people cease to believe that God exists, and then embrace evolution, everything becomes relative and there are no absolutes and no-one to answer to, so society descends further and further into obscenity and madness. The emphasis on the Big Bang theory (but always presented as fact) at the opening ceremony,  set the scene for what was to follow, and only a few would have been shocked at the replica of Alison Lapper Pregnant,  which is indecent and terribly wrong, and it would have been just as wrong if an able-bodied, naked ,pregnant, unmarried woman had been the subject/victim!

  1. ”Marc Quinn is a most disturbing ,frightening and surely abnormal, individual”.
    Hmm. So it’s all right for you to make remarks like the above, and say the man is ”abnormal” but if anyone questions YOU and your own odd point of view, they’re wrong. Hypocrisy seems to rule in your narrow little world love.

  2. How bizarre – my totally inoffensive comment has been removed within 5 minutes of posting. No wonder your blog has no comments – you obviously remove them all. I thought being a ‘religious’ lady, at this time on a Sunday, you’d have been in church rather than on the internet. Freedom of speech obviously frightens you. I pity you, I really do.

    • Point no.1 – We did not see your comment as we don’t spend our time waiting for comments to come through. We have now approved your comment, having just seen it. We do receive comments, Madam, and we have approved most of them. We do permit our readers to disagree with us. Our concern is that the truth be told about the pressing issues of the day and, if the truth offends you, then we suggest you look elsewhere for a blog that is more to your liking.

  3. Perhaps you would be prepared to answer my point then?.

    • What is your point? Our readers are free to comment on our posts and we allow them to air their views and to agree or disagree with us. We have the right to state that a “work of art” is abnormal, if we, as Christians, believe it to be so. You are at liberty to disagree. We can’t be fairer than that.
