Sweden: Parliament official orders bare-breasted painting removed for Muslims
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, A painting of a bare-breasted woman has been removed from the Swedish Riksdags guest dining room on orders from the legislatures deputy speaker.
Deputy Speaker Susanne Eberstein of the Social Democrat party ordered the painting, Juno by baroque artist G.E. Schroder, to be removed from the guest dining room, where it had hung since 1983, TheLocal.se reported Thursday.
We routinely change paintings from time to time, a Riksdag representative said in response to an inquiry from news agency TT.
A parliamentary source who asked to remain anonymous told TT lawmakers were concerned about the paintings effects on foreign visitors.
You have to think of the foreign guests, especially those from Muslim countries, the source said.
Eberstein said the paintings removal was also for the comfort of herself and her fellow female officials.
I think it is more a feminist issue. Its tiresome [looking at] a bare-breasted woman when I sit at public dinners with foreign guests. I think it feels a little hard to sit there with men who look at us women, Eberstein said.
Do pious Muslim men see the artwork then look at her as a piece of meat causing her to feel she may be raped?
Or like the mythical stereotype of the devout Catholic Latino, is the belief that Muslim men who under the sharia can have four wives at a time, can marry underage prepubescent girls, are among the worlds largest consumers of pornography and treat women as chattel are offended by bare-breasts a bit preposterous?
“Beginnen rainen, we cannot looken for the sheepen in the rainen.”
So, when a Western representative goes to a Muslim country are the women required to remove their Burkas and veils because they are offensive to us?
Oh, for f**k sake. I pay these fools through my taxes.....
Modern progressives/Liberals, are like a snake that doesn’t realize he is eating his own tail.
A can of flat black would provide a nice hajib and fix the problem.
There is a delicious irony in seeing the anti-Christian leftists willfully, almost gleefully, accepting their Dhimmitude.
David, of course, is nude and Venus is bare breasted and they were standing on a table next to each other in my bedroom. This family member is super religious. She was upstairs in my house and later, after she left, I was in my bedroom and found my David and Venus turned around to face the wall. I stood there staring at my statues and started laughing. Who was she protecting from the evil of nudity to turn them around? Herself? Certainly not me as I am the one who paid good money to have them.
Anytime you come to my house you are welcome to see David and Venus facing forward. If that offends you, don't come to my house to start with as I probably offend you, too, for having them in my house.
At least she didn't break them 8-)
You are so much more tolerant than your intolerant Christian in-laws. How courageous of you to turn this into a Christian bashing thread. Your atheistic sanctimony is overwhelming.
I thought you meant bare-breasted RANTING. Like if Salma Hayek took off her top and started yelling about something.
Oh, my. That is a VERY famous painting.
Let’s just hope they don’t hand it over to the Muzzies to be burned.
After the muzzles are a majority in Sweden and some of these other little lefthole countries, well see if the muzzie parliaments are as accommodating as these fools are being
I was a Christian probably before you were born. David and Venus are superb works of sculpture. The eye of the beholder can make them whatever they want. She chose to make them evil in some sort of way so much so she turned them around. That was excessive compulsive behavior on her part.
Why is everyone afraid of muslims???
A kindred spirit! I like the way your mind works.
