Say NO to a blasphemous nativity scene!
The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) ^

Posted on 12/16/2002 6:20:19 AM PST by reegs

The lesbian "rock opera" Jesus Has Two Mommies will show this Christmas season at the Somerville Theatre near Boston, MA.

Jesus Has Two Mommies dares to distort the sacred mysteries of Christmas, showing Jesus born to two lesbians, Mary and Josephine. Among blasphemous mockeries of God, the virgin birth, and the Holy Family, Jesus Has Two Mommies portrays Mary and Josephine's affair at a lesbian bar, the "real Christmas story."

According to press reports: "Luckily the trio is up to the challenge. The trio consisted of God... Jesus and the angel Gay-briel. ...Blessing Faith [Faith Soloway, the author] with a Psalm Pilot, they present the real sotry of Jesus' birth and life. It all started at the 'hottest lesbian spot in all of Nazareth - The Burning Bush.' Among the patrons of this bar are a local carpenter named Josephina... and the newcomer Mary... the couple ignites immediately" (Out In The Mountains, Jan-02).

You understand the extreme gravity of the attack on Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Please join our peaceful protest; (No Violence Whatsoever)

I was outraged when I learned of this production through literature from TFP in the back of my church. The protest was staged on December 7th and was a success with the director cancelling a couple of shows and the negative publicity reducing ticket sales (see the TFP site for details on the protest)

What is SO frustrating is that these sexual deviants and their supporters can desecrate anything we hold sacred, but just imagine what would happen if someone got ahold of their "rainbow flag" and burned it. I'm sure that person would be arrested and tried for "hate crimes."

Socialism (in the guise of liberalism) is the cancer that is rotting this country and destroying all that has made it great.

I wouldn't be showing up then. I don't know that I could have that much restraint.

The people that do this sort of thing are just plain evil.

This is only done to mock Christianity. No one really believes Jesus was born to lesbians.

If they don't believe, so what, if they choose to believe Christians are dumb, knuckle dragging creatures in need of enlightenment why do they mock? Why not have some respect for other people and traditions. Why, because they are just evil.

And they are truly pathetic and sad.

I know exactly how you feel.

At the same time, I'm always amused by productions like this, and Corpus Christi by Terrence McNally. If these people didn't secretly realize the truth of what they're mocking, they wouldn't mock it.

The hatred that pours out of their mouths and minds is one of the most poignant testimonies to the truth of the Gospel.

I had the same feeling when I came across that line. After I read the flyer, I was trembling with anger. I usually shrug or laugh these things off as some leftie in desperate need of attention, but this production absolutely crossed the line with me.

Judgement Day isn't going to be a pretty sight for these people, unless they accept Christ, and repent.

When religion is politicized and flounted, and when other religions are attacked, then this sort of thing will happen more and more.

Why give these perverts attention? That's what they want. Let their little production get sucked right down the black hole of obscurity. I think these weirdos do this stuff merely to agigate decent people.

If ya gotta go, gather together to cast the demons out in Jesus' name, annoint the building and leave. That'll really frost 'em. :-)

Why not sue the playwright, actors, and landlord for libel?

That's how Confidential mag was put out of business.

No, they would not. They might get arrested for violating some kind of municipal ordinance (you can't even burn leaves anymore in most locales), but you can still engage in such a protest activity. But why would you? It's best to take the high road against these idiots, rather than stoop to their level.

Libel laws would never apply here. This is an insult to Christians, but insults are not prosecutable - otherwise, half the members of FR would be in jail.

Oh by the way, I'm sure they are all thrilled with you for giving them all this free publicity!

If you'll read the linked article, you'll see that the negative publicity and the protest resulted in the director cancelling two shows and a reduction in ticket sales.

There's also an interesting article on their site Are Protests Against Blasphemy Effective? The Other Side Speaks that demonstrates that protests are effective and hardly generate "free publicity."

I agree, since getting his signature would be difficult.

“What is SO frustrating is”


Don’t be frustrated. When their appointed time comes, they will be cast into the Lake of Fire....if, they are truly unrepentant.

There is no law against showing up and taking pictures of the audience as they enter or leave the theatre. Post it on youtube. If it is good enough for the homos it is good enough for us. Maybe some of their relatives or employers would be interested in their bizarre behavior.

When Massachusetts citizens signed a petition to put gay marriage on the ballot, some homo creeps put the names, addresses and phone numbers of the petition signers on the internet. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
