The play "Corpus Christi" is causing a stir even before its premiere during the Mardi Gras in Sydney, Australia.

Corpus Christi portraits Jesus as a gay man, who is seduces by Judas!. Jesus also marries two gay apostles.

Obviously this pisses og the bishop in Sydney (duh...). He thinks that the play is making fun of Jesus (how awful if anyone should do that, just look at those Muhammed drawings... Wait, we don't wanna drag all that into this)

The director of the play, Leigh Rowney, wants to provoke to a debate about Christianity. The writer (who is gay), Terrence McNally, already recieved death-threaths before the play was made public.

I'm not even going to start about religion!
