Abusive comments by one user on this art.
It is harassing for any human's religious/faith and also for skinner.
Never find this kind of language on other art communities like deviantart.
This is simple art like other.
I hope WC admins will be there to take necessary action.

you sure about that?
Allah is Great has become a warcry. You drew first blood.
By posting that wallpaper you are inviting/ baiting people to make unnecessary comments. I wouldn't doubt it was on purpose. You simply cannot be that out of tune with the world.
If people just kept their religion to themselves, the human race might actually go somewhere. Religion has held us back in ways you can't imagine. It has kept poor and starving cultures hanging on by a thread in the name of god/profit.

What about the Muslims who feel persecuted or oppressed by Christians? Can they make similar comments on Christmas or Easter wallpapers and get your support when the artist complains? What about all the atrocities that have been committed against people in the name of any God or religion? Do we just say 'what did you expect?' because this is the most current conflict?
As controversial as it may seem to some, it's a wallpaper. A work that took some time and should be seen as art. If you want to see it as an expression of faith, fine. It's the ignorant person who doesn't understand that faith or that others have perverted it that always seems to be the loudest and most noticed. The trouble comes when the the rest of the ignorant follow because they think they've found a leader. Hopefully, no one follows the commenter and more people from the community support the artist.
I'm glad it was posted. It really should be a reminder that are healthy expressions of faith among any religion.

Posting a thread like this can result in a less than desirable outcome.

He is The King of The Universe!
Saying that for this other fits about right.
As for the response for your wallpaper. It looks like you live in fear.
If so remove it - the wallpaper that is.
Otherwise just live with the comments. That is all they are.
Once they break a rule then the admins can look into it. But it usually takes two to make this happen.

My son is also in the service. I don't begrudge the faith, just the animosity in the name of that faith.

- If there is a comment you want admins to look at, send them a PM or an email with the link. Do NOT post a thread about it. Often the discussion about an offensive comment can become FAR more offensive than the original comment that started everything.
- We will not tolerate any comment, thread etc that denegrates anyone's religion. We will heavily moderate such comments.
I am closing this thread and dealing with the offending comment on the skin.
