Like many others, I am aghast at Tate Britain’s decision to remove John Latham’s “God Is Great.” The piece is thoughtful and refects a fairly common position on the nature of monotheism that many hold in western societies. As a Christian I do not agree with the premise of the work, but can hardly imagine being offended by it.

This is a regrettably low ebb in the history of western art.
