Counter-demo for Springer protestors
Jerry Springer: The Opera opened at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester last night accompanied not only by the usual gaggle of Springer protestors, but also by a counter-demo by the active Leicester Secular Society in support of free speech. As far as we can gather, this is the first time the anti-Springer brigade have encountered organised opposition.
If the show is coming to a theatre near you, and you want to know what the Christian demonstrators are up to (if anything), Stephen Green of Christian Voice has helpfully set up a web page (Stopspringer.com) with contact details for would-be activists.
UPDATE: The Leicester Secular Society reports that supporters of the show actually outnumbered anti-Springer protestors!
UPDATE: This was not the first time Springer protestors had faced opposition. A couple of hardy souls turned up in Birmingham to defend free speech, too. Well done them! (Thanks Andrew and Marc in the comments)
