Helsinki: Atheists Offer Porn in Exchange for Bibles

with 2 comments

A Finnish free-thought society thought of this provokative campaign to draw some attention to how much the churches are trying to controll private matters. Last weekend, whoever brought a bible along for a visit to the freethought society of Helsinki was offered a porn-magazine á la “Hustler” or “Erotica lehti” in exchange. According to diepresse.com, 50 people took them up on the offer.
The Christian Party of Finland condemned the campaign, calling upon the authorities to review the legitimacy of it. Despite the passionate protests by various christian groups, the police were quoted saying that the campaign “didn’t cause much trouble”.
The spokeswoman of the atheist society showed herself satisfied with the result of the campaign. In an interview with the finnish news-agency STT she said that the aggressive protests revealed the need for an open debate over the controll that religious communities exert over the private life and the sexuality of their members.
