This is My Jerry Springer Moment

The Opera

Despite various protests against it Jerry Springer: The Opera WILL continue its tour around the UK, coming through Birmingham via the Hippodrome next February! I’m not necessarily a huge fan of Mr. Springer (although the shows can be hilarious) but I am definitely against such censorship.

On a somewhat related note, some of you may remember last December when the Repertory theatre over in Centenary square tried to put on a production of the award-winning play, Behzti (Sikh for “Dishonour”), only to be forced to stop the showings when the Rep was stormed by angry protesters who claimed the play “mocks their faith.” Obviously I don’t take my religion as seriously as some people, but I cannot believe people can get so worked up by a PLAY (especially when it’s ENTIRELY ficticious). Sheesh.

Then again… I wonder if any of this falls under the new laws against incitement to religious hatred?

LOL! Actually, upon reading the FAQ linked above, I noticed question 6 which DIRECTLY answers that very question. Guess that answers that.
