There are some groups of Christians out there planning a protest against BBC 2's projected airing of Jerry Springer: The Opera:
"This musical, notorious for containing over 8,000 expletives, depicts the characters of Jesus, Mary and God as self-centred sexual deviants who give and receive extreme verbal abuse and a horrific series of blasphemies all in the name of comedy. The show's artistic director admits that it is a deliberate attack on good taste and the BBC concedes that the intended broadcast "pushes back the boundaries of taste and decency".
Nevertheless, the show is planned to be transmitted without any cuts."
As this was the first any of us had heard about it, when I told a friend about this, he responded "Can we e-mail them back to find what time it's on?"
