Dear oh dear, I am actually amazed by this and a little taken aback, not only is this goes way beyond so called freedom off expression, this is another attack on christian faiths within the UK.
That IS freedom of expression. No one has a right to silence their work. If they don't have a right to do their play, then you don't have a right to complain. Deal with it.
And I think a play should be done on Gay Jesus. Or maybe it already has...
1. He never married
It would have been strange for a man of Jesus’ age in his era and location to not have married.
2. He loved a disciple
It’s been suggested that Jesus loved a disciple. Could it have been John?
3. He was kind and gentle
Okay, this is truly stereotypical, but he was a kind and gentle man.
4. Surrounded himself with men
Yes, most men surround themselves with men, there called friends. But, Jesus has all men and no women? Yes, Mary Magdalene is there, but she’s not his love interest, right? If he’s not his love interest, then who is? That’s right, he’s a gay.
5. Christian hate for homosexuality
What is the best cover? To do the complete opposite of what people expect.
6. The hair
What manly man could actually manage that Fabio-like hair?
7. That robe
How could a truly heterosexual man actually where that robe (aka - a dress)?

May their non reproducing selves dive into the ABYSSFUL FLAME HEAD FIRST for even disrespecting the SON in this way. This is PAGANISM IN ITS WEAKEST FORM, man this makes me mad.

Karma is finally returning its favor to Christianity for all those crusades in the Name of that religion.

I dont remember the bible saying Jesus was transexual. He was not gay either, oh yeah and he never even had a girlfriend.

I can't believe the sense of humour you guys have out there in Scotland! I would actually be proud at that kind of freedom of expression being legal and allowed.
Honestly, I think some people are offended too easily. Nobody is being hurt by this, it's simply a play with characters from the best-selling story book(in the US anyway). I don't get offended when my favourite books are made into films that poorly portray the book's details.
If these characters are not copyrighted, then I see nothing wrong with such a play.

I do not see how portraying jesus as a transexual is wrong. We are all male and female, and this is something most will not even consider.

Another group of people with nothing better to do but take the piss of Christianity. Why don't they use Mohammed or Hercules or something... they are just looking for some publicity.
I agree with you on that.
Why don't they take the piss out of the jews, or the muslims. Oh i forgot those are hate crimes.

Guys let me ask you this!
God created man in his own image
Isn't god neither female nor male?
If both statement above are true, then how is this play not very fitting?
I find your statements extremely bias

Theres no reason for this kind of nonsense against any religeon, not being religeous myself all I can see is , it's done for SHOCK VALUE ONLY.
After all it's like the news shows and the newspapers, they don't sell if they tell the truth, so they publish sensationalist material instead, same as this 'show'. its not done to honour any religeous belief , its just done to shock the audience into 'going to see what the fuss is about'.
Nothing more than that.
