Blasphemous Play Depicting Jesus as ‘Transgender Woman’ to Be Presented in Northern Ireland

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

Clifford-compressedBELFAST, Northern Ireland — A blasphemous play depicting Jesus Christ as a transgendered woman is set to be performed at a homosexual festival in Northern Ireland.

“The Gospel According to Jesus Queen of Heaven” is scheduled for showing on Nov. 15 at the Outburst Queer Arts Festival in Belfast. It was created by Jo Clifford, a man who identifies as a woman.

“The play imagines a transgender Jesus coming back to the world today,” Clifford told BBC News. “She pitches a sermon and tells a few very familiar gospel stories.”

“Our mother who art on Earth, blessed is your name. … Give us this day our daily kisses,” a promo video for the production states, showing homosexuals kissing each other. “For yours is the queendom, and the beauty, and the Church forever and ever, amen.”

This year is not the first that the play has been presented. In 2009, the production, which was performed as a part of the Glasgay! arts festival, was met with protest outside of the Glasgow theater as some found the play to be blasphemous. Nearly 300 people gathered to sing hymns and hold signs such as “Jesus, King of Kings, Not Queen of Heaven” and “God: My Son Is Not A Pervert.”

“True biblical Christianity is becoming marginalized through political correctness,” Jack Bell, pastor of Zion Baptist Church, told reporters that year. “If this play had treated the prophet Mohammed in the same way, there would have been a strong reaction from the Islamic community, but that just wouldn’t happen.”

Clifford denies that the play is blasphemous.

“As a practicing Christian myself, I have no interest in attacking the church or mocking the church or making fun of the church or in any way, being blasphemous or offensive,” he said.

As previously reported, a United Church of Christ congregation in Massachusetts recently hosted what it called a “Drag Gospel Festival” in support of the homosexual and transgender members in its assembly.

“What do drag queens or drag kings have to do with Jesus or the gospel?” the First Church of Somerville wrote on its website. “We at FCS believe ‘God don’t make no junk.’ So whether you are straight, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgendered or still playing hard to get, Jesus loves you and so do we! Amen baby! So come and get yours at this here church!”

Over 250 people attended the service, including one man who walked to the front of the room upset about the event flyer, which featured a graphic of Jesus wearing makeup and earrings.

“You paint up Jesus Christ like a prostitute,” he declared.

    Still attacking christians! We’re not the ones committing suicide missions and killing innocent people all over the world. Lol. Smh.

    Clifford’s whole commentary is nonsense. This play mocks the gospel and underminds the Lord’s sacrifice on the cross. The bible explicitly tell what is sin, yet countless of belligerent minds have remove homosexuality as sin to live the life the want. Evil and seducers shall wax worse and worse.

    The world is dumbing down the word of God so much that eventually, if we don’t take a stand, we will loose our freedom to practice the the truth of Jesus Christ. When are we going to rise above fear of the faces of man. The world is going to continue to be lead by Satan. He is not going to change. We have to change! We must pray without ceasing and develop our relationship with Jesus Christ to guide us into making a change in our lives, communities, and ultimately our world. We can not be so busy in our private world that we overlook the changes that are happening around the world to muzzle our mouths and destroy our freedom to worship Jesus Christ. WAKE UP! WAKE UP! The things of this world(money, houses, jobs, people, etc.) will pass away and all will be left is our soul that we will have to be accountable for to God. Thus when I read the many articles similar to this, my heart keeps saying, “WHERE IS THE CHURCH!” Lets not worry about loosing members, or being intimidated by one another, or other pastors, bishops, prophets, churches, etc.. Lets link together, unite and take a stand Kingdom People!
