WITH no prospect now of ever bringing a blasphemy prosecution against anyone now that this vile “crime” has been abolished in the UK, the Clown Prince of British evangelism, Stephen (Stay a Virgin, Marry a Virgin) Green, has desperately been trying to find an excuse to bring his pathetic troupe of losers back onto the streets.
Alas, the best Green could come up this month was a whisper that the BBC was planning a reality show in which pop hopefuls would audition for Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber to play the Messiah in a revival of Jesus Christ Superstar.
On hearing the rumour, an excited Green, who thinks he may have spotted a “witnessing opportunity” (code for making a horse’s arse of himself) rushed out another of his many vacuous press releases – this time promising a “Jerry Springer-type protest” if the BBC dared to go ahead with the project.
Bleated the attention-seeking Green:
Christian Voice might even try to get young Christians into the audition room itself to share the Gospel of the real Jesus Christ with Lord Lloyd-Webber himself.
Ooooh, we bet that’ll leave his Lordship trembling.
Green, who heads Christian Voice, which appears to be more a cry for help than a legitimate organisation, added:
If it were to go ahead, the show would then become for Christian Voice very much a Jerry Springer, the Opera operation, with witness and evangelism at every venue. There are still plenty of veterans of the early protests over Jesus Christ Superstar around who would love to share the Gospel with the queuing (sic) wanabees.
It might even be that we could encourage Christian singers to enrol in order to tell Andrew Lloyd-Webber just what they think of his project in the audition room itself.
But the show just ain’t gonna happen, according to Unreality TV:
We told you a few weeks ago that Sir Andrew and the beeb were considering using Jesus Christ Superstar for next year’s big reality TV event. However the BBC are said to be worried that they will face the same sort of complaints from Christian groups that they faced over the Jerry Springer Opera a few years ago.
Unreality TV said that an insider had revealed to The Sun:
Some Christian groups are bound to have a problem with Andrew telling people, â€˜You could be Jesus’.
Someone should now start a rumour that Lloyd-Webber is contemplating a new musical called How Do You Solve a Problem Like the Messiah? That would sure get Green in a lather!
