Some on Social Media Are Asking, ‘Have They Read Shakespeare?’
Christian parents are turning to God in anger after a traveling theatre company performed an educational parody of Shakespeare’s plays for students of one North Carolina high school. Parents and pastors held a prayer meeting outside the school (photo) after it was revealed the play included a same-sex “stage kiss” – which means it wasn’t even an actual kiss.
“A group of concerned parents and pastors held a prayer meeting after a play was performed at Mitchell High School they say was inappropriate for the student audience,” WLOS reports.
The comedy, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” was edited to be more “appropriate” for students, but apparently issues of alcohol, suicide, and especially homosexuality were still too toxic for some parents.
“Earlier reports suggested the prayer circle was formed in response to ‘inappropriate content’ including suicide, alcohol consumption, and ‘bad language’ — all of which you’d find in Romeo and Juliet — but a local resident informed me the real ‘concern’ was over homosexuality,” Friendly Atheist’s David Gee reports.
“What people were actually upset about,” Gee says the local resident told him via email, “was the all male cast and that two men shared a stage kiss.”
Reporting on the prayer meeting, WLOS Meteorologist Rob Bradley posted the above photo. Some responses via Facebook:
Trump blames Ocasio-Cortez for two Democrats who were nearly barred from Israel
President Donald Trump tweeted out Sunday that Democrats are ready to wage war against Israel because the prime minister followed his direction to ban Congresswomen from coming to the country.
Israel backed off after an uprising from both conservative and liberal groups, saying the purpose of any international visit should be to help educate, regardless of the support for the country.
"House Democrats want to take action against Israel because it is fighting back against two (maybe four) people that have said unthinkably bad things about it & the Israeli people. Dems have such disdain for Israel! What happened? AOC Plus 4 is the new face of the Democrat Party!" Trump announced.
‘Part of me wanted to leave’: Lone attendee of Steve King town hall turns out to be a ‘hungover’ Democrat
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is being told to resign by members of his own party who are tired of his overt racism. While many Republicans might exhibit racist tendencies and make apologies for the president's racism, King says things out loud the GOP would just assume he keep quiet on. The true test, however, comes from King's own district and whether or not they're willing to reelect him in November.
The key revelation came at a recent townhall King held, where the only person who attended was a hungover Democrat. The Iowa Starting Line reported the pathetic event, where it seemed more members of the press were willing to show up than actual constituents.
‘I’m the one who calls the shots’: Trump rails against Fox News for giving him ‘his worst polls’
President Donald Trump explained why Fox News has drawn his ire and that they need to realize he's the one in control of them.
In a conversation on the tarmac in Morristown, New Jersey on his way back to Washington, Trump said that Fox News has not been good to him lately.
"Fox is a lot different than it used to be, I can tell you that," Trump said.
In an earlier Twitter rant, the president went off on Juan Williams for being "nasty and wrong."
