Esta obra pertenece a una serie de anagramas realizados a partir de citas bíblicas; los textos alterados corresponden a citas cuyo contenido original promueve la misoginia, la homofobia, la esclavitud y otros tipos de odio y violencia. Serie iniciada en 2013; continúa en desarrollo.

A partir de las letras de la cita bíblica:

“Si un hombre se acuesta con otro hombre como si fuera una mujer, los dos cometen una cosa abominable; por eso serán castigados con la muerte y su sangre caerá sobre ellos.”

           -Levítico 20, 13

 

Se lee ahora el siguiente anagrama:

“Lucharemos costumbres obsoletas e insanas;

Deja su usual encono fanático, su asco a Babel

Se retorcerá el gremio creyente.

Gobernaremos como humanos unidos por amor.”

Esta pieza cuenta también con una versión en idioma inglés basada en The Kings James Bible:

 

A partir de las letras de la cita bíblica:

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

           -Leviticus 20, 13

 

Se lee ahora el siguiente anagrama:

“Oh pointless faith,

lo, the meek and amiable path to enable love.

How humane to thwart discrimination and hate homilies:

unfathomably dumb, howbeit lethal myths.”

This work belongs to a series of anagrams made from biblical quotations; the altered texts correspond to quotations whose original content promotes misogyny, homophobia, slavery and other types of hatred and violence. Series started in 2013; continues in development.

From the letters of the bible quote:

 

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

           -Leviticus 20, 13

 

It now reads a new phrase which translated into English would be:

 

"We will fight obsolete and insane customs;

Abandon its usual fanatic hate, its disgust towards Babel

the believing guild will writhe.

We will rule as humans united by love. "

 

This piece also has an English language version based on The Kings James Bible. From the letters of the same bible quote, it now reads the following anagram:

“Oh pointless faith,

lo, the meek and amiable path to enable love.

How humane to thwart discrimination and hate homilies:

unfathomably dumb, howbeit lethal myths.”
