The deep fried Bible – by Edward Leigh MP

The case of the battered (as in deep fried in batter) Bible, a work by two young artists attempting to represent Glaswegian culture and recently sold at a public gallery in Glasgow, highlights the double standards practiced in Britain today.
One suspects that had the exhibit been of a curried Koran perhaps as a representation of Bradford or Leicester, for example, there would have been a public outcry with not only politicians, but religious leaders and the mainstream media scrambling to condemn it. And rightly so.
Unfortunately, with no national media coverage and little political comment or condemnation this case seems to emphasise the reluctance of the media and people of influence to defend the religion of Britain.
