EMAILS ABOUT THE MAKING OF A “GAY JESUS” FILM
Emails similar to this one have been doing the rounds for a number of years:
The movie “Corpus Christi" is due to be released this June to August. It is a disgusting film set to appear in America later this year which depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theaters for a while. It's called "Corpus Christi", which means "The Body of Christ”. It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But we Christians can make a difference.
That's why I am sending this e-mail to you. If you do send this around, we just might be able to prevent this film from being shown in Canada and America ... and in South Africa!!!!
Let's stand for what we believe and stop the mockery of Jesus Christ our Savior. Where do we stand as Christians? I am forwarding this to all I think will respect and appreciate being informed. Please help us prevent such offenses against our Lord. There is no petition to sign, no time limit, or minimum number of people to send this to… It will take you less than 2 minutes!
If you are not interested and do not have the 2 minutes it will take to do this, please don't complain if God does not seem to have time for you.
Imagine what would happen if this film were depicting Mohammad in the same way... the Islamic world would be in flames! Apparently, some regions in Europe have already successfully banned the film. All we need is a lot of prayer and a lot of e-mails.
JUST GET THE WORD OUT!
Will God be able to find at least 50 righteous people who are willing to express their concern and voice their opinion against this act of blasphemy?
Emails of this kind have been circulating since the mid-1980s. However, no such movie has ever been produced, is in production or is planned for the future.
There is, however, a real stage play (‘Corpus Christi’) incorporating a homosexual theme, and there is a 2011 documentary film about that play.
So while there is an element of truth, the email that circulates is not correct.
