*A theatrical play where Jesus was portrayed as a transsexual woman has residents in Glasgow, Scotland protesting.
More than 300 demonstrators waved placards and sang gospel songs during a two hour candlelight vigil outside the Tron Theatre where the play Queen of Heaven will run through next weekend.
The play presents Christ as a man who wants to become a woman, according to the Scotland Herald.
“We are here to protest against the blasphemy of this play,” said Jack Bell a church pastor.
Another demonstrator, Peter Campbell of St Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church in Greenock, said: “I am here to say enough is enough. I feel I have to do something because I don’t feel this is right and I have to stand up for the cause of Jesus.”
The Christian Institute, which is opposed to equality for gay people, has said the festival is “further proof of an agenda to use taxpayers’ money to fund assaults on Christian values.”
