King of Queers

Apparently, as part of a drama class project, a college student in Texas wanted to put on an abbreviated version of a play depicting Jesus and all the disciples as being gay. The play is set in 1960s Corpus Christi (also the name of the play). I see how this could be objectionable.

Hott Jesus bod...?

However, I don’t think they should have canceled it. Even though I think the terms “separation of church and state” and “freedom of speech” are wildly abused in this country, I see no reason the town should’ve shouted, argued, and threatened it down. It was for a college class, and the school was behind the students putting it on, but apparently the town went NUTS and it got canned.

I didn’t learn this today, but I hold this truth to be self-evident: bigotry and homophobia are still alive in America today. Duh.
