Christian Group Deface Gay Street Art Of George Michael After Losing Postal Survey

“Respectful debate” continues in Australia after the population voted 61.6% in favour of same-sex marriage as Facebook group ‘Christian Lives Matter’ post a call-to-arms demanding action against a street art painting of George Michael depicted as a gay saint in the Sydney suburb of Newtown.

The Facebook post called the art “offensive,” “discriminatory,” and “pornographic”.

Hours after the post was made, a member of the group took a photo and shared a picture of someone defacing the art.

The artist of the George Michael mural, Scott Marsh, has had a second of his public art targeted by the group. A questionable depiction of former PM Tony Abbott and Cardinal George Pell on Newtown’s, Botany View Hotel has been defaced.

The Botany View Hotel has also been the victim of a cyber attack with over 700+ one-star ratings to its Facebook page, hateful and threatening phone calls and staff members threatened as the group threw a bucket over the wall before three men arrived and to paint over the mural entirely.
