Abstract

The first portion of the essay goes behind the opinion of Justice Harper to present interesting background to what prompted the litigation. The middle portion of the essay is a brief overview of blasphemy law and the problems it poses. The third portion of the essay is, to my mind, the most thought-provoking. Apart from legal considerations, what are the ethical responsibilities of publicly-funded art galleries?
