Religious groups predictably upset over R. Crumb's graphic novel version of Genesis

Biblical sex row over explicit illustrated Book of Genesis - Telegraph Crumb says he's just illustrating what is in the text. The religious complainers say he is a pervert. It's one of those lovely cases where everyone is right!
The Book of Genesis illustrated by R. Crumb has been criticised by leading religious groups such as the Christian Institute. "It is turning the Bible into titillation," said Mike Judge, of the Christian Institute, a religious think-tank. "It seems wholly inappropriate for what is essentially God's rescue plan for mankind. "If you are going to publish your own version of the Bible it must be done with a great deal of sensitivity. The Bible is a very important text to many many people and should be treated with the respect it deserves. "Representing it in your own way is all very well and good but it must be remembered that it is a matter of people's faith, their religion. "Faith is such an important part of people's lives that one must remember to tread very carefully."

College students freak out over cartoon depicting noose

College Kids Miss The Point, As Usual - outrage - Gawker The irony here hits critical mass level. Beware.
Oh look, the black cartoonist Keith Knight dared to draw a black guy in a noose in this recent K Chronicles strip, and now "Students at a western Pennsylvanian school are outraged." Shut up, Slippery Rock University. E&P reports from the front lines of the controversy that kids are totally not taking the fact that this comic strip ran in their school paper lying down or whatever: "We don't care if it was a black, white, orange, purple, pink person who wrote this article," Audrey Foreback, a sophomore, told local radio station WYTV. "They should not have been allowed to print it and publish it throughout the school. It's just wrong." That extraordinarily stupid statement appears even more stupid once you read the actual comic strip in question. Also stupid is the fact that "some students showed up at the student center with nooses around their necks in protest of the cartoon," . . .

R. Crumb draws Genesis: “I grew to hate the Bible”

Subversive cartoonist R. Crumb zaps the Bible | Raw Story
PARIS — Subversive US cartoonist Robert Crumb, whose take on the Bible is about to be released worldwide, says people are “totally nuts” for taking the book so seriously for so long. “I grew to hate the Bible,” he told a press conference for the international launch of “Robert Crumb’s Book of Genesis”, which he called a “gruelling” four year project. The book hits bookshelves in late October in Europe, Brazil and the United States. “The idea of millions of people taking this so seriously is totally nuts,” he added. “The Bible doesn’t need to be satirised. It’s already so crazy.” ... “The Bible is not the word of God. It’s the words of men,” he said. “I take it all as myth from start to finish”.
