      I haven’t seen this play, however, the precept of Christ is that there are two parts to our personhood, flesh and spirit. From what I have gathered, by all that was said on this subject, flesh is the lesser of the two. That is no secret, as it has been spoken of in many different ways, with many examples and parables. All of the pleasures of the flesh, of living in an organic mass of molecules, of pride, is temporary and subject to death. The spirit is not confined by the laws of death and mortality. It would be incongruous for this Person to carry on in a carnal fashion. Christ had this concept in the bag, so any Christians, flying into a rage over this play, seem to be raging about unresolved hatred, in themselves, towards others, rather than knowing that physical matters, worldly pleasures, exploits, were beneath Jesus. If a play blurs the line, takes liberties, or even blasphemes, have no fear that His reputation is at stake. Quibbling, protesting, stirring up the ire of others, and storming the stage in outrage is giving the writer of such a play too much of your time. Shake the sand off of your shoes and carry on.

      Queerty: ‘Brandon is turning the other cheek in regard to these haters, saying “we welcome any protester to please see the play or film as our guest so they can experience firsthand the Love He really stood for.”’

      I’m definitely protesting this film. Hey Brandon, send me my free ticket! I’ll be quiet as a proverbial church mouse while the film is being shown!

      On a more “serious” note, my guess is that the “Christian” protesters will have to contend with a counter protest orchestrated by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc. They will have met their match.

      I was in a production of Corpus Christie in New Zealand… hardly any fuss was made about the play.
      My personal response to the script is that it’s a great premise but it is poorly executed and inconsistent… I has a wonderful start but the form set up changes towards the end to reflect a gay version of a medieval Passion play, the wonderfully alive and vibrant characters all but disappear which is a great shame.
