Story based off of FoxNews – we pulled the opinions.

Residents of Stephenville, Texas, are furious that a local university will allow the performance of Corpus Christi the play depicts a gay Jesus sharing a kiss with Judas and marries two apostles in a same-sex ceremony.

A school spokeswoman said it changed the performance time and boosted security to guarantee a “safe and secure environment” for the students, and it has now closed public access. Only students and invited family members will be allowed to attend the show.

The play is a class project for student-director John Jordan Otte.

The play presents a modern-day version of Jesus’ life and death in 1960s Corpus Christi, with a few changes from the original plot. The apostles are all gay, Joseph is an alcoholic wife-beater, and Mary gives birth alongside a chorus of moaning men.. At the end of the play [Jesus] is crucified with the moniker above his head as ‘King of the Queers.

A British Islamic group put out a death warrant against McNally, in 1999 when “Corpus Christi” premiered in London’s Pleasance Theater. If he visits an Islamic country, he could face arrest and execution.

Despite the controversial nature of the project and mounting pressure from the community, Tarleton State has stood by Otte’s right to free speech.

Here is a Wikipedia link to the play.
