June 8, 2010 at 2:52 PM

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, June 8 (UPI) -- Sweden's Museum of World Cultures said it has canceled an exhibit about homosexuality in religion because it might offend some believers.

The Gothenburg museum said it consulted with representatives of the three religions involved in the exhibit, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and decided not to display artist Elisabeth Ohlsson-Wallin's pieces as a separate exhibition because it could offend religious people, the Stockholm News reported Tuesday.

The pieces depict texts from holy books condemning homosexuality beside pictures of people of the same gender in sexual positions.

Ohlsson-Wallin said she is in contact with other museums interested in displaying the exhibit.
