The ever-controversial Christ play Corpus Christi, routinely referred to by the press as "the gay Jesus play," has elicited cries of outrage in St. Andrews, Scotland, where the drama is being produced by St. Andrews University.
"If there is a blasphemy like this, Christians have to stand up," said Stephen Green of Christian Voice told UK reporters. "Jesus Christ is being portrayed here as a foul mouthed, drunken, promiscuous homosexual and that is an insult to my faith."
Christian Voice has formally lodged a complaint with police. No decision has been made yet.
Set in 1950s south Texas, Corpus Christi depicts the life of gay Christ-like figure named Joshua and the relationships he forms with his twelve disciples, including a Judas-like lover, a lawyer and a male prostitute.
Since then, the play has regularly inspired protests from conservative groups.
