Full article.A cancer charity has refused a donation from Jerry Springer - The Opera after a religious group threatened to protest.
Maggie's Centres said Christian Voice's contact prompted it to reject £3,000.
Christian Voice said it had warned the charity that accepting cash from a show full of "filth and blasphemy" would be a public relations disaster.
The show's star, David Soul, accused the religious group of "strong-arm tactics" and blackmail - adding cancer was not just a Christian problem.
Religious groups have criticised the opera for its frequent use of expletives and the appearance of Jesus and God as guests on Springer's TV show.
A statement from Maggie's confirmed they would not accept the donation.
This really, really get's up my nose! Who the hell do these people think they are?? A show is offering money to a charity, a charity that needs the money. It's not stolen or drug money, it's good money. And these bloody religious ass holes have to stick their big heads in and stop it
