This reminds me of the community productions of Godspell and Jesus Chris Superstar that I saw as a kid, complete with rainbow spandex, cheesy backdrop and a good old fashioned message of brotherly (and sisterly) love.
As the Episcopalian Church splits over an openly gay bishop and the Catholic Pope continues to travel around the world decrying gay marriage, I say, Please. Listen to Jack Black. The Bible offers some wonderful guidance and powerful stories, but it was written a long time ago. Like any book, it is a product of the culture, time and place that it grew out of. Just as stoning a woman for having sex out of marriage is no longer in style, denying equal rights to any group of people has no place in this 21st century democratic country. (Interestingly, our ed-in-chief Waylon made some of the same points in his letter on same-sex marriage last year.)
