Springer protest news
As the national tour of Jerry Springer: The Opera continues, so do the protests by offended Christians. The protests at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle have already started, even though the show doesn’t open there unit May 1. One of the protestors was fined £50 for littering when she was handed a promotional flyer for the show and threw it away in disgust.
One of her born-again accomplices said:
She probably took one look at the contents and threw it away in disgust. I don’t blame her. Jerry Springer – The Opera, is blasphemous and evil. But she shouldn’t have been littering. A bin would be the right place for it
Quite right too.
Meanwhile, protests have been going on in Edinburgh, where the show is currently being staged. One protestor, Paul James-Griffiths, dressed up as a blood-spattered Christ bearing a crucifix.
This is my artistic response to something where I feel people have pushed the boundaries too far
Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between genuine Christian protestors and the free speech defenders taking the piss out of them.
