Stephen Green “apoplectic” at JS:TO grant

According to the Independent the Arts Council has granted £30,000 to finance the national tour of Jerry Springer: The Opera.

Stephen Green of Christian Voice, the organisation which is currently picketing venues around the country, is furious:

It would not be possible for this show to be any more blasphemous and insulting to Christians if it tried. I cannot believe it has qualified for public money.

It needs the money to keep it going. As far as I am concerned, Jerry Springer: The Opera appeals to people who like treading in dog shit. Taxpayers have no business supporting it.

So full of love and the grace of his lord Jesus Christ, isn’t he?

    And of fairly limited imagination, if he really thinks it could not possibly be more blasphemous. I can think of loads of ways it could. Bloody LOADS…

    Am I imagining things, or did SG say shit?

  3. Craig says:

    HE SWORE!!!!!!!!!!!

    god’s gonna be pissed!

  4. Loz says:

    Just trying to work out whether saying dog shit
    OR
    writing an amazingly funny satire which uses rather than abuses
    religion to convey its message

    is more blasphemous… Which one dya reckon?

  5. Tania says:

    Judging by his choice of language, Mr Green has obviously been taking tips from the opera. Evidently he loves it.

  6. Loz says:

    Haha, Can’t wait for him to start singing

    “What the fuck, what the fuck, what the fucking fucking fuck!”

  7. Tania says:

    I can just see it now: Stephen Green plays…JESUS!

    This sounds like a challenge, no?

    It wouldn’t surprise me actually. He probably has the DVD, and watches it monthly, along with Dogma and Life of Brian.

    It’s an amusing thought. I’ve often suspected that a lot of protesters are hypocrites, and are just protesting to gain fame/money. I can just imagine some anti-american protesters sitting in their arm chairs in Levi jeans, drinking Budweiser, eating McDonalds and watching baseball.

    Ahahahahahahahahahahaha! Well said, Loz. You’ve got me singing it now…

    โ€œWhat the fuck, what the fuck, what the fucking fucking fuck!โ€

  11. Stuart says:

    Maybe he meant to say ‘godshit’ but got his dung in a tizzy

  12. Marc Draco says:

    If it comes anywhere near me, I’m going to put a dress up in a beard, wig and nappy and protest against the protestors.

    I wonder who’ll get the most publicity! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Tim Ireland says:

    Don’t make it bulky nappy, or all the tabloidS will claim that you’re dressed as a suicide bomber!

    Poor, poor Stephen.

    I forgive him.

  16. scotch says:

    Hicks on being hassled by some rather burly geezers after a show. “They said, ‘we’re Christians. We don’t like what you said about Jesus'”. Pause, quizically. “I said, well forgive me.”

  17. Andy Gilmour says:

    scotch – awww, don’t cut it off there – the next line:

    “…they broke my legs.”

    RIP Bill Hicks comic-fuckin’-genius.
