I'd be so much more impressed by the actions of these brave boys, though, if just for once they trashed the icons of someone who might hit back - like Muslims. Why are these courageous displays of free thought always directed against a toothless Catholic Church?
It has been centuries since a Pope had somebody murdered. The Ayatollahs are a different matter. When I see Chris Ofili exhibiting copies of the Koran, rather than Madonnas, painted with excrement I might applaud the artist's integrity (though, nothing else about him).
