Some Swedish teens fancy themselves art critics. The troublemakers apparently disagreed with an art show in Jonkoping, where artists from around the world displayed images of gay-friendly Jesus at the Ecco Homo exhibit.
In an effort to destroy the show, the teens allegedly attempted to burn the place down. They didn’t succeed in their mission, but did succeed in starting a brawl involving 30 people.
Tony el Zouki, chairman of Kulturhuset, said around 30 people were involved in the fracas. The attempt to vandalize the exhibition appeared to have religious motivations, he said.
JÃ¶nkÃ¶ping is known as the heartland of Sweden’s evangelical Christian movement.
“If this is some Christian group, then I really do not understand them. The message of Christianity is that people should understand and love each other,” el Zouki told The Local.
Obviously el Zouki doesn’t have much experience with Evangelicals.
