"Corpus Christi" Porn Movie

A close friend sent me a mail which, in part, goes like this:

A pornographic movie is being shot and is intended to show up in
America soon, which shows Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals.
This is similar to a play that has been in theatre halls for a while.
It's called Corpus Christi , which means "The Body of Christ".
It is a revolting joke of our Lord. But we can make a difference,
that's why I'm sending this e-mail to all of you.
Could you please add your name to this e-mail's list's end?
If you do so, together we may be able to ban this movie from being
shown in America . Apparently, some regions from Europe have banned the movie already.
All we need is a lot of signatures!

So like the "responsible" blogger" I am, I did a google search and found some pretty (ugly?) interesting facts behind this allegedly "in production" movie:

1. Apparently, this current movie is based on a previously produced 1997 play by Terrence McNally

2. There were protests made by
Bishop Bruskewitz - who called Corpus Christi a “Heinous Blasphemy Against Jesus Christ”

“The Bishop of Lincoln thinks that the play Corpus Christi is a vile anti-Christian production which is, in Catholic moral terms, a heinous blasphemy against Jesus Christ. He feels that if there were an anti-Semitic or anti-African American production scheduled for the UNL campus, such plays would not be tolerated by the University. It seems, however, that anti-Christian plays do not contradict the spirit of the tax-supported university.”

Such statements have always proved helpful against blasphemy. “When we protested the blasphemous art exhibit Our Lady of Controversy in Santa Fe,” said Protest Coordinator Robert Ritchie, “Archbishop Michael Sheehan condemned it and his words immediately caused irreparable damage to the museum’s public relations committee. I am certain Bishop Bruskewitz’s comments will have a similar outcome in Nebraska.”

The Catholic League, the largest Catholic civil rights organization in the U.S. founded in 1973 by the late Father Virgil C. Blum, S.J., to defend the right of Catholics – lay and clergy alike – to participate in American public life without defamation or discrimination also protested.

3. Fast forward to 2007, in the current controversy, so far 315 people have signed the petitions. If you would like to do likewise, please email me at: 26jude@gmail.com
