No, sounds like propoganda
Just like the Department of Homeland Security series.


Try watching it before making such baseless assumptions. It was rather fair documentary in my opinion.

And unless you want everything to be glowing praise, which NO religion can claim, then with it should be clear that is was an effort to distinguish extremism from the norm.

I still personally, believe the norm is far less than the numbers indicate. But therein lies the phrase "My opinion".

It's funny but when the cartoons of Mohammed occured and muslims got angry, all the christians were saying "what's the big deal, our culture makes fun of jesus all the time"

and it was religious people that told me this too

wow at the hypocrisy


So you're saying we should all just take it on the chin - not a gay pun.. oO

Right, well it seems the xtians have. A wee bit of a 'WTF' at the time, again, and then it's back to status quo. Oh and not all people who love jesus are zealots persecuting people for giggles. Yet they are the ones offended.

Lets see if that works for any other culture/religion. Now, all you non-conforming people stand in line, and we'll start with the......

Nah I'll run outta characters in the post.

You think aboot it...

Definition of irony...


I am not sure if you were being sarcastic there or not, but I laughed either way


Because celibacy means you're a raging closeter... I see


Definition of something, thats for sure..

How are you so sure it is done to offend? It seems obvious to you like revenge right? LOL

No but seriously, how are you so sure?

What you just said there reminds me of reverse racism.

Freedom of speech I think includes everything, even if your feelings are hurt, you are free to say what you want and that speech might offend you, so I really don't know how you are coming up with freedom to offend when it is already included in freedom of speech.

No reason, but to offend. And the point is lost in the process.. Way to go.



It is different since you are talking about drunken people and who hasn't done anything stupid under the influence of alcohol.

There are stupid gays out there just like straights, but bad apples don't define every single one.

This report just in...

THOUSANDS ADMITTED TO HOSPITALS WORLDWIDE WITH FLYING SHOE RELATED INJURIES, KNEE-JERK REACTIONS BLAMED

Get a grip.

I'm thoroughly proud of my little country for allowing this to take place, though I'm surprised it's happening in Glasgow and not the 'den of iniquity' that is Edinburgh.
So what if it's a transsexual Jesus? I think the man/woman in question is merely expressing his/her faith artistically and should be allowed to do so without criticism from close-minded fundamentalist nutters who would call him/her a pervert or abomonation. Maybe if it was a straight man playing the role then you could say it was for shock value only, but this person clearly has a personal reason for doing this so I can't object to it, and I wouldn't even if I still believed in God etc. Anyway, isn't the thing about Jesus supposed to be the 'message'? Or are all you Christian fundies obsessed with Jesus' schlong?

Also to remember this just divides the gay and the religious community even more, so it doesn't do good in that sector also.



I think it'd be a drop in an already vast ocean, but as we're talking about a transsexual 'gay' has nothing to do with it.



*edit to add - 300 protestors in a city of approx. 620,000? Ooh those 'weegies are so outraged...

the people saying "this is the most offensive thing ever, why arent they doing this to Islam?" are hypocrites. it wouldnt be any less offensive if it were islam, just less offensive to you. hell, many of you would probably get a laugh out of it if it made fun of someone else' holy man.

So if they were doing the same play on Allah, would you make the same comments, or would others in here on ATS.



I don't know anything about Allah... I could care less about Allah...

I'm a Christian and find the modeling of Christ as a transexual an enlightened twist which makes Christ even more accessible to more people.

I find those who are protesting this to be grossly ignorant.






No they woud not, they would be crying out against it. Oh but it is fineto target Christinaity time and time again.



All religions should be parodied, extended, remodeled, etc.

Sorry that's just what I believe... anything worthwhile will stand the test of time. Anything else should be kept secret.




At least the protestors were not burning flags or giving out death threats like some other religions, whom have done in the past, over cartoons or books.



No instead, they were calling transexuals perverts. It's a recognized medical condition for crying out loud!

I really fail to see why people are offended.

If you beleive that jesus is the son of God and all that entails does being a transexual or homosexual, or any kind of sexual diminish his message or what he means spirtually to you? Is he less of a diety? Granted the RCC demonizes homosexuals and the like but again how exactly does it change you relationship with him


I can see the bumper sticker now 'What would Transexual Jesus do?"

What?

What a loaded statement after a question, when the answer is obviously right in the title of the article.

Hows this "Homosexual men obviously are pedophiles!" - is that offensive, or if I make a play about it, does it become art?

There is a concerted effort by certain segments of the gay community to attack specifically christian attitudes, buy putting them in a light that they KNOW is offensive to christians. Like it or not, you cannot change that.


No but seriously, how are you so sure?


Because it was done. simple. They didn't use Homer Simpson as their target. Why? I doubt many fans of Homer would be upset.

I think the same. And it's all utter garbage. But I think we may have differing reasons why.


Freedom of speech I think includes everything, even if your feelings are hurt, you are free to say what you want and that speech might offend you, so I really don't know how you are coming up with freedom to offend when it is already included in freedom of speech.


So as I said, we're all OK with slandering and ridiculing everything and everyone. Fine. If thats the rule, I will agree to it. But it's not.

And in the scheme of things, xtians are pretty much the most passive of the lot. No riots, no murders, no threats of death.

If I can call someone a name in the name of satire or paint a picture in the name of art that I determine points out the flaws of what I perceive to be that person or culture, let me. But I don't get that opportunity, I get called racist, ignorant, offensive, bigoted, et al.

No, only Islamic Rage boy gets to dictate whats wrong with the world. We all else have to suffer it.

What? Whos drunk, where? These people are suggesting they are expressing their equality by ridiculing people and icons that affect way more people than the few who they are targetting. Drunk? Oh my, tell that to them.


There are stupid gays out there just like straights, but bad apples don't define every single one.


No, but it's best to throw out the rotten fruit, because the fruit flies tend to lay eggs on the otherwise normal fruit.

*pun*..

the answer to that of course is he would put on a play.

but not just any play, it would be the best funded play in history.

unless people abandoned their faith in him because he was a transsexual.

i think people would deny it was him.
there would be quite a bit of "thats not MY Christ/God/Savior. Jesus Christ is not a homosexual"

as insane as it sounds...i think people would protest him with signs saying things like " 'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."

im sure they would remain christians...just with their own views of christ.

this just my opinion. it does not reflect what i think ALL christians would do, but i feel it does reflect on how some, or even many would react.

Americans are gay...I'm writing a play about it! Anyone got a problem with me showing Obama as GAY and changing the stars into hearts on the flag?? Didn't think so...

Afterwards I am going to do a play where Mohammed is a Chinese pedophile... I'm sure everyone will be cool with that right??

If not, they're going to have to get over themselves, because people have already fought and died over the very right to say such things.

Anything is sure to piss someone off. Yes, I'm sure someone would be offended. The next step, is to then get over themselves.

Let's have Mohammad be the Chinese pedophile and Jesus the little boy. A Catholic priest can even join in. I don't care. Like I said, people can get over themselves. People have already died over these freedoms and if it comes to it more will die for them. I rather enjoy freedom. Don't you?

Yes I do.

But we also have the freedom to express our feelings when are beliefs are being mocked. Which is exactly what these protesters are doing... there is nothing wrong with them protesting and I feel they have a valid reason for doing so. How can you say that it is wrong for them to protest a mockery and a plain and simple disregard to their beliefs?
