Madrid, Spain, Feb 17, 2010 / 11:07 am
Some 18,000 emails led to the cancellation of a photo exhibit that was to take place at the Contemporary Culture Center at the University of Granada, Spain. The display was to include photos of Christ as a homosexual, the Virgin Mary as a prostitute, St. Joseph as a camel and the Nativity Scene as a brothel.
Protests against the exhibit came as the watchdog website Hazteoir.org published an alert about the event that was scheduled to open on February 15.
The website reported that in just four hours, 18,000 emails were sent protesting the exhibit and demanding it be canceled. That same day officials announced the event would not take place.
