SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (AP) — The head of a western Massachusetts charter school says a student production of a play that retells the biblical story of Genesis with gay characters will go on as planned despite objections from some who say it's offensive to Christians.

Anything good and wholesome that the left can corrupt, they will... for their de facto “master and lord”.
It’s called SODOM and GEMORRAH!!! Let the Fire and Brimstone rain down......They were destroyed BECAUSE of Homosexuality! Yes, Hadley....PLEASE do a play about this!!
I really don’t care. It’s Massascrewsits. Anyone still living in this state better think carefully about what they’re doing.
America needs God’s judgment. Those who promote what God calls an abomination are demanding God’s judgment. America has turned away from God. Adults are dragging children down the path of sin against God and no one is doing anything about it. I have no problem with fire and brimstone. We deserve it.
>> Adults are dragging children down the path of sin against God
Yes. Such “adults” are predatory scumbags.
I emailed them.
Asked why they didn’t show mohammed as a homosexual.
Yes they are and MA seems to agree with corrupting children at the youngest ages possible.
It is being done for the attention which is most of what gay, lesian, transwhatever is about. Have you seen that tv commercial that says gay teens are 5 times more likely to attempt suicide than straight teens? Notice, this isn’t actual suicides but attempts. Attempts are nothing more than whaaa look at me, whaaa the more I act out the more attention I get, whaaaa if my family and friends think I’m troubled and might attempt it again they’ll cater to my every whim!!!
You can accept sin if you want but I won’t. And I won’t accept public schools promoting homosexuality as biblical.
It’s a Public Charter school - not the regular town school
Still a public school.
It's not a question of if but when. And there can be no love without justice. But, if there are just 10 righteous men there......
We deserve the judgment of God. We knew Him, as a country, and have rejected Him. The acceptance and aggressive pushing of homosexuality is a sign of how corrupt our country has become. Apart from repentance, we have only judgment ahead. I hope we will repent, but I see no sign of it.
If you don’t think the founders would have been revolted at what we’ve done, you misjudge them. They weren’t aggressive evangelicals, but neither were they God-hating men.
If God doesn’t judge America, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.
If it’s offensive to Christians the show must go on
If it’s offensive to non-Christians the show is cancelled
anyone see a pattern here?
They are the ones who wake up miserable that God has not killed everyone with whom they disapprove.
“retells the biblical story of Genesis with gay characters.......it’s offensive to Christians.”
Not only is it offensive to Christians, but it is also offensive to logic. How would “gay” Adam and Eve populate the earth? Just how would a “gay” family exit the ark and repopulate the earth?
As I remember Genesis, it revolves around the creation of the earth and the population/repopulation of the earth. That is NOT POSSIBLE to accomplish with gay behaviour.
Mr. Rogers, I completely agree.
Sorry to interrupt you're little moral superiority rant there but:
Hyperbole (pron.: /haÉªËpÉrbÉliË/ hy-PUR-bÉ-lee; Greek: ὑπερβολή hyperbolÄ, "exaggeration") is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally.[2
Yes, the “pattern” is
Christ and His people
I am sitting pretty close to 'ground zero' (New England), and I wholeheartedly agree. Some begin to understand what it was like for Lot to have lived in Sodom and Gomorrah.
That would be a perfectly acceptable rebuttal except that most of the christians here take the bible literally and certainly take the Sodom and Gomorrah thing literally and actually DO believe in magical terrible places with lakes of fire and whatnot.
I’m am absolutely confident that the person wishing destruction upon South Hadley really does thing a magical vengeful sky king reigns death upon towns.
And by the way, this is a charter school with kids from many, many different towns. I hope god knows this when he begins his destruction.
By definition, God cannot “murder”.
If you can accept the population bottlenecks and incest necessary with the literal bible stories, you can accept gay people having kids somehow.
I just read more about this. The main complainants are Catholic. How many gay priests molested little boys in Massachusetts in the last 40 years?
These people know no shame.
If you aren’t a Christian, you probably wouldn’t care that God is mocked, but a lot of us do and it is our duty to express our outrage at this. And because homosexual priests are in the church that makes it okay to promote homosexuality to children and to blasphemy? Not to me, it doesn’t.
Just to be clear here, you are begging this entire town to be mass-murdered?
It’s a big deal for homo perverts to use Christian children and the Bible to mock God. Not to you, becuase you mistake yourself for being above God or the Bible.
Not that you are owed an explaination about a God and faith you reject, but no one “calls God’s fire down” on anyone else. The poster is correct that there is a history of things turning out badly for evil people who act aggressively in their perversions like this and for the people who allow and cooperate with them. If you don’t like that, too bad. There is probably a butt god for you to worship somewhere.
Could you imagine the reaction in Saudi Arabia or Iran if a school produced a play with Mohammad as gay?
I doubt the governments of Saudi Arabia or Iran would permit much a school play.
I’m not equipped with enough biblical knowledge to discuss your response. However, I can see that you are pushing some meme.
My point was that it is an impossibility for their liberal logic to be valid, which is true in every case that I get to see liberal logic.
nah, no meme. Just every now and then (maybe once every 2 years), I can’t stay away from the more extreme christians FR attracts. Granted, JimRob is one himself, so it makes sense.
I usually stay far away. This type of stuff has no bearing on my life. As you can tell, I’m not part of the christian wing of the conservative movement. I find it has damaged the efforts more than it has helped. I’ts fine to morally object to a stupid play in a far off state that you feel denigrates your religions. I get that.
But to take it to the next level and pretend that god is going to judge the town (even if it’s a charter school with kids from all over) and possibly destroy it - is, I’m afraid, asinine.
It’s only one step below the psychopaths who kill cartoonists for daring to draw their god.
“Don’t be deceived. God is not mocked. Whatever man sows, that he will reap.”
“Vengeance is mine. I will repay, says the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 32:35)
The fact that you don’t believe it doesn’t change God’s mind.
“Its only one step below the psychopaths who kill cartoonists for daring to draw their god.”
That is one mighty big step then. It is a long way from anonymous posting on an internet discussion board to actively hunting down and actively murdering “heretics” in the name of their god. In fact, I’d say that there is at least one step in between, which are those that hand out candies in celebration of the killing of a Jewish family in their own home.
But that’s just me being objectve....
Feel free to flame away at folks for their religion, I won’t stand in your way, however you should really go back and read your posts with a special eye towards moral relativism.
You’re such a pooooor victim of someone with Christian knowledge, standards and morals. How dare they “judge” aggressive queers debasing the Bible in public schools and warn about what happened to Sodom!
You have studied something for forty years. But I think you missed the Bible. Yeah, you are a joke.
Don't worry. HE's way smarter than you.
OK, your reply made me chuckle. I do have to give you credit for admitting that you are purposely pushing certain buttons.
Have a good weekend.
Genesis? Are they going to make the Garden of Eden with “Adam and Steve” instead? And exactly how do they go about obeying Genesis 1:28-
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
