Edinburgh festival not scared by religous hatred laws
The religous hatred laws are not affecting the presence of religion realted comedy at the Edinburgh festival, the Sunday times reports today.
There are a record breaking 50 shows about religion or with religion as a theme this year, including the hilariously titled “We Don’t Know Shi’te. Also included are a Danish Islamic comedian debating the Mo-toons, a show about Jesus being arrested at US immigration and shipped off to Guantanamo Bay, and plenty of spoof evangelists.
Disappointingly though, Stephen “Dogshit” Green will not be in attendance. When the writer of the Sunday Times piece phoned him, he said “We’re not a rent-a-demo”. And the Pope isn’t Catholic.
