My drawings and paintings of the poet Sappho and some words about the censorship of her poems

Sappho and Gongyla, acrylics on canvas painting
These are mai painting of the poet Sappho from the Isle of Lesbos. I don't know if she was really homosexual but she was a great poet, a feminist and a sensitive artist. She loved beauty in all of it's forms, the beauty of nature, flowers and young girls. Unfortunately most of her creations have been destroyed by the misogyny christians that followed her. This christians, especially the orthodox christians in the eastern europe, acted and keep acting like talibans.
Sappho's poems were not about pornography and perversions. Sappho's poems were just about feminity, beauty and pure love, but they were destroyed be cause they have been written by a woman and this would contradict the text written by Saul (known as Saint Paul), a frustrated gay man in denial who hated gay men and all women be cause he could not accept himself. This Saul wrote that women are inferior and should not be allowed to be leaders of opinion, write and teach others. 
Even the muslims were influenced by this frustrated man, islam being a branch that emerged later from the common stem of the abrahamic religions. All the abrahamic religions are characterised by misogynism and a conservative and intolerant attitude and have pulled humanity and civilisation backwards.
As I said before it's a pity a lot of creations, including Sappho's poems, have been lost because christians have destroyed them, like they did with Alexandria library. 
Abrahamic religions have always been the worst enemy of both arts and science and without them we would have been far in space, reaching distant planets, without them.
There were times when people were killed be cause the had the courage to say the Earth is just a sphere rotating around the sun. 
Scientists were killed, artworks were destroyed and wars were made in the name of a religion that claims to be the religion of love, peace and wisdom. 
How can you talk abot love while you promote hate and intolerance? How can you talk about wisdom while you burn books and kill people just be cause they dare to tell the scientific truth contradicting the bible? Hou can you talk about peace while you make war "in the name of God"?
I's sad there are so many places in this world were people still follow abrahamic doctrine instead of knowing the scientific truth.
