The play sounds like it would be great. I guess if the show organizers didn't mean any offence then it's alright. Maybe if they said ''he's Christian so he's transsexual'' it would have been a bit more offensive.

Out of curiosity, are any moderate Christians on here offended?

I wouldn't say i'm offended, but I would say it kinda makes a mockery out of it. Which admittedly, isn't something I enjoy listening to.

They're just doing it for publicity, without the controversy around it the play probably wouldn't do too well.

A play showing a religious icon as a transsexual? I'd see it, except it's on the other side of the country.
I would never have heard of it if it wasn't for the news story though.

This raises an important question, are there any transsexual Christians?

Why wouldn't there be? Plus it's in the article itself...

Glasgay! producer Steven Thomson said: "Jesus Queen of Heaven is a literary work of fiction exploring the artist's own personal journey of faith as a transgendered person.

EDIT: Re-reading that I realise that it doesn't say he's a christian.

I'm not Christian and I don't really understand why it would be considered offensive. I don't see how someone's gender or sexuality is really an issue - doesn't change Jesus' message to humanity, does it?

I am a little bit, but I'm not the type to tell people it's wrong. If they don't want to believe what I do and they want to mock it, as long as it doesn't interfere with me and what I do then I have no right to judge or try and stop them.

K just to clarify, in what way is this either mocking or not believing the same thing you do? They're not saying they don't believe in Jesus/Christianity, they're not trying to claim that Jesus really WAS transsexual, and if the fact that they depict him as transsexual is offensive to someone then that's pretty much saying that either transsexual people are inferior, or women are inferior, neither of which is true.

Not having a go, just wondering how it can possibly be seen as offensive

People need to lighten up a little and enjoy it for what it is; a piece of art.

According to the bible jesus never sinned = no sex. He wouldn't have been an anything-sexual. Inferring he was would mean he had sinned and is just as bad as the rest of humanity. I'm not saying I'm outraged or anything, I just don't find it funny when my god is made fun of, but if you like it then w/e

Being transsexual doesn't mean the person has had sex, though? It just means they're in the wrong body. So it's not saying that he has sinned, if you believe it to be sin. They've just portrayed him as changing sex to illustrate the playwright's own journey of faith as a transsexual. I don't see that it's making fun of anyone's god or God or anything, if anything it's trying to allow people in the LGBT community to feel closer to their religion. Not really harmful to anyone.
