-I don`t really like Jerry Springer BUT ...
Catholics are such hypocrites!!
They only protest to hide their own skeletons! Remember how they got into trouble and had to pay millions of dollars to the families of victims that their so-called `priests` MOLESTED?? I am sure those `holy men` are going to hell too :-/

I found this on dictionary.com ( it`s SO true )

hyp·o·crite / –noun
1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.
2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

Take THAT Catholics!!! So please shut up and go away already!!

Yes it has. There where protests over here as well. Its all very pathetic. People who protest something because of religious grounds should just stfu till they can prove they are right. If these tools get their own way, imagine what sort of world we will live in!

What the hell..

Something is offensive only because you see it to be so.

This opera played for two dates maybe 8 or 9 months ago in New York City, and I didn`t get to see it. I recall that I-A-B neglected to post the article that was submitted about it. Harvey Keitel played Jerry Springer.

Jerry Springer the Opera also RULES, thats the thing, it has brilliant music and a hilarious storyline, and is the only musical to win all of London`s "best musical" awards. It did a long London run with no protests, then it aired on UK TV, and did a UK Tour where it had loads of Christians protesting, which was hilarious as it added to the story in the show! lol

Fine Nidonemo that may be true. But while I`m here I would like to ask, Do these ppl have jobs? I don`t just mean Catholics I mean many protesters? Seriously, who has time to stand on a street corner and yell about poo that really doesn`t matter? Am I paying for these ppl out of my tax dollars (unemployment/welfare/government subsides)? If they want to bitch, bitch about or DO something that will make this Country better. Don`t waste your time bitching about a stupid musical. Rock on IAB!

FU Catholic`s! What doesn`t offend you? There is no way that this Country can get more PC w/out offending Someone!!! Actually, I am offended that they are offended! Idiots! I am now protesting idiots, religious fanatics, and ppl that have no sense of humor. I will be first in line if this comes to Portland OR. Sound like mindless fun and some damn good comedy.

Well I`m glad this didn`t go the way of Lestat: The Musical and close the same night it opened. I`m severely curious on the soundtrack now, though.

And seriously, Catholics are offended by everything these days. Advice: get over it. Not everyone is going to listen to an old Italian guy.

QueenZira: Interesting...but the question is, how long did it take them to realize it? XD

Xiquiripat, I`m confused. The Eastren church is well known for its love of statuetes and representations, sometimes covered in lavish gold leaf. I don`t think the Greek/Russian Orthodox would particularly care.

Nidonemo I know, I know!!
The old position of the 3 monotheistic faiths was to never graphically represent diety so as not to encourage worship of an image. Islam, being hardcore monotheistic still doesn`t allow any images. But in Christianity the controversy was solved when everyone realized that representing diety in pics is a lot like looking at a photo of a loved one, it reminds you of the divine mystery instead of encouraging idol woprship. {I know, i`m a huge dork}

Makes me think that all the holy prophets had camera shyness in common...

"Hey Jesus, smile!"

"NO! DAD IN HEAVEN! DON`T!"

xiquiripat: Now why is it such a heresy to depict someone? Are they concerned that people aren`t doing it "correctly"? Or that the act is disrespectful in some way? I`m actually genuinely curious because it doesn`t seem to make sense.

Catholics depict Jesus all the time. So according to Eastern Orthodoxy they`re all a bunch of rotten schismatic heretics who will burn in hell.

Wasn`t this shown on TV over here (Britain) a few years ago? I can understand why it is so offensive - if I remember correctly, Jesus announces that he might be a "bit gay" - but seriously people, if you don`t like something then don`t see it.

Catholicism ftl.

The pope can create new rules, but cannot affect old rules from previous popes, so rules keep stacking up until they can do drat all.

Funny, how Springer going to hell, and subsequent depiction of hell is offensive to Christians, yet a god that kills over and over isn’t.

Eg.
- Punished first humans for learning about right and wrong even though they knew not of right and wrong prior.
- Drowning millions of people apparently isn’t offensive but this is!
(repeat this next part 10 deadly times)
- Killed people via a deadly plague that caused millions to suffer horribly isn’t offensive, but this is!
(end repeat)
etc... ad nausium

Are they offended by depictions of Jesus and Satan?
I thought it was only their God that they`re not supposed to `depict`...
Then again, I`ve only ever come across a bible about twice in my life. Lol.

We can only hope that this musical contains a few of these moments: Jerry`s Best of Fight Compilation.
