Just going to leave these here ...

Quran Parody

there have even been Islamic Parodies of the Quran

(and at the risk of offending our Islamic friends here to make a point ... )

Thought better of it ... This is a link to a Youtube video of a song done in the style of Monty Python poking fun at certain Islamic stereotypes.

Maybe ... lol.

More seriously ... would you see the play if you were near Atlanta?

Probably not. I'm not a big fan of modern theatre, and this sounds like the sort of play that has been manufactured as controversial because it has little else going for it beyond the controversy.

Bring back the days of the Old Reperatory where hard working actors played roles in productions that had something to offer the theatre goer, beyond cheap shock value.

Now THAT may just be the best comment in the thread. Bravo!

I won't see it either, but I won't try to shut it down, for the same reasons I wouldn't try to shut down an Easter play at the local church.

Those aren't plays, but you'll leave those there to pretend you haven't wasted your time googling.

Christians need to smarten up.

Do what the gays would do if someone wrote and produced a play that was designed to offend and mock them.

Financially and socially ostracize anyone involved and anyone connected with anyone involved. Don't let up until they're financially ruined.

Exercise your right to protest, you know, those protests that progressives are so fond of, the ones that prevent anyone from attending an event said progressives find offensive.

Let your elected officials know that if they can't figure out a way to put a stop to this sort of crap, they'll be looking for a real job after the next election.

But while you're doing this, make sure to give a lot of lip service to the people's constitutional right to write, produce and attend this sort of thing.

You know, like the gays would do.

I wonder if they'd do the same to the Quran?

Oh right. They won't. They'd be killed. More proof that the Christian tradition is farther along in its evolution.
Yea. A lot of christians have almost caught up to the atheists.

Jesus was married to the church


"was" ? Seeing the church didn't come about till after his death - I'd say you need some Bible coaching.

Ok let's play your game - who presided over the marriage of Jesus to the church? St John?
How about you say something sensible like Mary Magdalene conceived Jesus child?

He's the groom who comes back in the night


It also says somewhere in the bible to beware of thieves in the night

Matt 24:43


But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

You do recognize the difference between the two though?

No, but something at least semi-comparable would be honest.

a reply to: LesMisanthrope

So giving you a good example is dishonest? Do all examples have to be plays for them to qualify according to you? If this time it was a "Draw Jesus contest" my example would qualify?

They can get away with this because Christians who are upset just complain and start petition drives inviting mockery. If they tried Mohammad and Aidan (Aisha), the top would come off the venue, literally.



Because Muslims kill when they get upset.

Questions are not arguments, nor rebuttals. Yes a YouTube video or a blog is not comparable to a play shown a stage. Is there a Mhammad superstar? Is there a Book of the Quran? There isn't. We cannot even publish cartoons without the artist having to go into hiding.

Another one that is being blind. What do you think about the "Draw Muhammad Contest"?
BTW I love Mr. Bean.

Gosh no they aren't plays ... they're parodies of the Quran and Islam.

I didn't state they were plays; must you always belabor the obvious so?

Whats interesting is even after seeing themselves on stage as Adam and Steve they still cant see the downright madness of the idea.
