Mass. School Blesses Gay Agenda God, Lesbian Mary

South Hadley, Massachusetts taxpayers, including parents, have complained that students at Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Public Charter School (grades 7 through 12) should not perform "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told," a blasphemous, pro-homosexual satire of the Bible. School administers countered the criticism, saying that the play is consistent with the school's philosophy -- dismissing the controversy as fueled by out-of-towners who simply don't share the local norms.
“[Canceling the play] would very much go against the grain of our unique, artistic and intellectually rigorous PVPA community and the larger Pioneer Valley Community.”
-- Scott Goldman, Head of School
Not surprisingly, the local liberal gay-affirming churches are showing support for the school to teach children to blaspheme the Bible.

For background, read The Devastating Effects of the Gay Agenda on Children, and read how Homosexual Indoctrination is Mandated for Schools, as well as read how the Feds Fund Homosexualists' School Training.

Also read how Massachusetts Parents were Forced by the Highest Courts to Accept the Gay Agenda for their Kindergartners.

Finally, read how the Gay Agenda is denying Christian liberty in the EU High Court, as well as in the Canadian Supreme Court, and even in the U.S. Supreme Court and by President Obama.

The school announced the opening of the play "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told," a satire on the Book of Genesis with gay characters, and was bombarded with emails and phone calls calling the show "blasphemous and hateful," according to Head of School Scott Goldman.

The Paul Rudnick comedy debuted in the Berkshires in 1998 and had a run in New York City and other theaters. The script features as characters Adam and Steve and Jane and Mabel in biblical times and modern day.

"It's not a play that bashes religion but it does make fun of some religious attitudes," director Chris Rohman said earlier this week during a rehearsal, adding: "Although it's full of jokes -- some of them at the expense of religious fundamentalism -- the play, is, at its heart, a thoughtful investigation of the meaning of faith and family."

. . . a message on the sign outside Edwards Church across the street, read "God loves us all, gay and straight." Edwards Church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ, the first protestant denomination nationally to embrace gay marriage.

Pat James, of Williamsburg, . . . said that she and her spouse, Karin McGowan, who attend the Haydenville Congregational Church, another UCC affiliated church, bought tickets for each night.

“The Haydenville Congregational Church is supportive all the way,” James said. “We are an open and affirming congregation.”

Savanna Ouellette, of Shutesbury, said she planned to attend the performance with her spouse, Katie Tolles. She said their church, the First Congregational Church of Amherst, welcomes gays and lesbians and is open to fresh interpretations of the Bible.

At a March 12 meeting of the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School Board of Trustees, parent and president Ralph Tropeano questioned the process by which the play was chosen. He said he seconded a student opinion that the play is disrespectful to a specific faith community.

“[The characters] Adam and Eve are ‘Adam and Steve.’ In the second act, they have the nativity scene where Mary is a lesbian who says all kinds of gross things,” said Brian Cameker of Mass Resistance. “It’s just a terrible play.”

In one scene, the virgin Mary reportedly shouts, “I’m not supposed to be pregnant, I’m a bulldyke!” Bestiality is also stated to be referenced in the program, and Pharoah is portrayed as a drag queen.

“[The playwrights] saw it as an opportunity to express some gay-positive messages that they want to share with the community,” Rohman said.

A New England theater guide, The Theater Mirror, in a glowing review, further explains the play “gets so specific as to be a gay how-to sexbook” and summarizes it as “a goofy gay romp with a serious sting in its tale.”

According to The Springfield Republican, the Most Rev. Timothy A. McDonnell [bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield, Mass.] responded through a spokesman: “I didn’t know it was the responsibility of charter schools to teach religious bigotry.”

Indeed, the play did go on, even over a the objections of a crowd of roughly 50 protesters who reportedly gathered on opening night.
