    Personally, I'm glad that this was shut down. There is no way they would make this about a gay Muhammad, etc.

    I have heard there was a gospel that outed Jesus as homosexual — for some reason it was not included in compliation of the bible. I guess the truth must hurt.

    Why? It's just one piece of fiction based on another piece of fiction.

    I'm willing to bet this play would have been pretty hilarious.

    Muhammad was married so it kinda makes less sense. Also the Islamic world is in general fairly anti-gay. It doesn't mean you shouldn't hold yourself to a higher standard.

    Of course a gay Muhammad is possible. What about a gay Jesus from TJ, Mexico who is chosen but is straight, rocks the cross dresser fashion, is Jewish in faith but totally loved the movie Inglorious Basterds? Maybe Muhammad is a side gay relationship? Imagine how funny it could be. It's a freaking play where in creativity I can create whatever I want.

    Of course you won't get any of this.

    Would they protest a gay easter bunny too? And what about black santa? Some people need to get a life.

    The thing about texas is that texas don't like the gays. It has nothing to do with jesus and all to do with rednecks being stupid.

    Really? You're glad someone was denied freedom of speech?

    I'm sorry, if I can defend Fred Phelps' freedom of speech, surely you can defend this.

    I don't think there is a doubt Jesus lived these is plenty of evidence of that. but what happened in his life is a whole other ballgame.
    but it may have been gay more of a chance he was gay then he was a white guy.

    No link required. Third hand accounts based on hearsay of possible events in the life of Yeshua ben Yosef are automatically validated as The Truth. Just ask any Christian and they'll tell you that.

    It was on Engadget. :D

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Gospel_of_Mark

    There were various parts of the Bible that got edited during the first millennia or even later than that.


    There was a musical piece, called 'Jerry Springer - The Opera'. It was poorly written and it was total garbage. The only thing that made it a success was general swearing and impersonating Jesus as a nappy-wearing gay black man.

    Without this pointless and shallow controversy, the piece would have been judged on its own merit and it would have been considered a complete flop.

    This reminds me of when people first started portraying Jesus as dark-skinned (which is far more likely than him being white). Oh, the hysteria!

    Hey Texas, go ahead and secede. You don't believe in freedom.

    There is NO contemporary account of Jesus. There is no first or even secondhand evidence at all. No contemporary references in Roman archives or by Roman historians. No archaeological evidence. To which "evidence" were you referring? :confused:

    The only possible purpose for this play was to inflame.

    Why do you say that? The director is gay and Christian too: is his only purpose to inflame? Would depicting Jesus as a woman be inflammatory? Would depicting Jesus as a black in an African country be inflammatory?

    Stereotype much?

    Texas has 25 million people (not including the millions of illegal aliens living here). Houston (the 4th largest city in the nation) has a gay mayor and is one of the more diverse cities in the country. Austin is one of the more liberal cities in the country. The Democrats swept the 2008 elections in Dallas.

    I spent twenty years in texas, and in that time I was called a "****ing f*g" by a wide cross section of texans for exhibiting such characteristics as: shoulder length hair, driving a two door car, owning cats, owning curtains, recycling, using a kitchen to cook food, and talking to a person of the same gender. I stand by my statement that texas is not only anti gay, but shockingly ignorant as well. I was basically chased out of texas for being gay, and I'm not gay.
    It would be funny if it weren't for all the hatred.
    Another funny thing is that a lot of my friends are expatriated texans.

    If he did exist, there's much more of a chance he was gay than he was the son of god. ;)
