Since when can someone sue for blasphemy? Or maybe more appropriately, when was the last successful blasphemy case prosecuted and what was the punishment?
|This is quite simply a brilliant and stunningly funny piece of retaliation. Lee and his co-writer, Richard Thomas, were at one point facing trial for blasphemy, 'but the court threw it out, on the grounds that it's not 1508'. Facing blasphemy charges for a piece of light entertainment, Lee decides to really knock himself out, and the second part of the show is a long monologue detailing a vision of Christ in his mother's downstairs toilet that makes The Osbournes look like a children's show. Lee is an extremely talented actor, and his fury is measured and controlled, but in his carefully timed pauses you can hear the audience holding its breath. Don't see this if you thought Jerry Springer, The Opera insulted Jesus. Do go if you want to laugh so hard that you leave in pain, and if you want to see one of the most intelligent and courageous comedians currently at work.|
It appears to be all over now anyway, with an unsurprising result, according to this bbc story.
Don't know who's been last prosecuted, dinners ready :)
I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".
if there are even critical flaws in Gauger’s work, the evo mat narrative cannot stand
