The Bible doesn't call for shellfish images to be banned though. My
point Tim is that Hidath image ban is not specific to one individual.
If the reason behind the removal is the Hidath, it opens the
possibility for other people to petition removing other images on
The reason behind the proposed removal, as I said in my first post, is
what offends people here and now. It's not about history or holy texts,
it's about sentiment. A proposal to ban all depictions of people and
animals would be laughed at by both sides.
