I see that "Jesus the Guantanamo Years" – the ludicrous anti-US anti-Christian play is opening in Belfast shortly. DUP Councillor Christopher Stalford, formerly of this parish, was helping expose the silliness of this inane play on the BBC earlier this evening, and more power to his elbow! The left-wing ideologues behind this play like to pretend that Jesus Christ "could" qualify for internment in Gitmo under current US rules of engagement. Not so.
1. Christ was not a Jihadist, nor did he spend his time on battle-fields. I know left-wingers think that everyone in Guantanamo is innocent and only the US is guilty but surely the Prince of Peace is the wrong selection even by their stadards?
2. Judaeo-Christian values inform the US constitution from which the President derives his power. Either the playwright does not understand this or does not like it.
3. If you want to write a play about a religious teacher from the Middle East who would well qualify for Gitmo, try Mohammad. After all, those currently in Gitmo all swear allegiance to him. There’s a clue for you.
