Police take no action on 'Gay Jesus' play

A play currently being put on in St Andrews, called Corpus Christi and written by American playwright Terence McNally, portrays Jesus and his disciples as sexually active homosexuals. This has, perhaps unsurprisingly, attracted criticism from what might be called the 'God Squad', in this instance an outfit called Christian Voice.

I have no idea whether Jesus was gay or not. However, if we are to believe what is written in the Bible, He preached acceptance of people of all kinds and was notably vocal in his criticism of the religious [and closed-minded] orthodoxy of His own day. In any case, the Police are very sensibly taking no action. Luckily this country is not [yet] a theocracy.
