You'll notice that it is generally tacitly acknowledged that Christians are potentially dangerous lunatics else they wouldn't be feared in this manner. It it only hypocrisy and fear of lunatic retaliation that prevents it being spoken openly.


Play With Gay Jesus Figure Canceled

NEW YORK (AP) - The curtain won't be rising on a new Terrence McNally play featuring a homosexual Christlike figure.

Manhattan Theater Club said it will not stage the award-winning playwright's ``Corpus Christi'' in this fall, according to published reports.

The recent announcement of plans to produce the play sparked an outcry from religious groups. But Manhattan Theater Club said it was canceling the production because of security concerns.

Neither McNally nor the theater would comment further.

McNally, who has won three Tony Awards for his plays ``Master Class,'' ``Kiss of the Spider Woman'' and ``Love! Valour! Compassion!'' was nominated this year for his book of the musical ``Ragtime.''

``Corpus Christi'' was read last month at the off-Broadway theater, where many of his plays have originated.
