Scottish Christians seek to prosecute Corpus Christi producers

Scottish Christians seek to prosecute Corpus Christi producers

A group of Christian protesters in Scotland has called on police to prosecute a theater company for blasphemy because it is putting on a play about a gay Jesus. "If there is a blasphemy like this, Christians have to stand up," said Stephen Green of Christian Voice who protested outside a theater showing Terrence McNally's controversial play Corpus Christi at St. Andrews University. "Jesus Christ is being portrayed here as a foulmouthed, drunken, promiscuous homosexual, and that is an insult to my faith," Green told BBC Radio. But the play's director, Zsuzsi Lyndsay, defended the production: "He is not portrayed as a drunken foulmouth. He doesn't say one bad word throughout the play." But Christian Voice was not placated. It has formally lodged a complaint with police, arguing that the American playwright's work was blasphemous. No decision has been made yet.
