I like a good laugh first thing.always start from far left to right.
It's always interesting to note how far removed from sanity we seem to be getting.

Far be it from me to defend anything Saatchi related, but it seems to me that the gallery, which is not a public body, made a commercial decision to protect their brand from, what they perceived to be, negative associations.

So you'd not expect any problems if your church displayed paintings by Anton LaVey? Or, say, somebody made an opera featuring Jesus Christ as a character?
