This story contains two things that could only happen in Britain - the staging of a musical portraying Jesus as a coprophiliac, and people suing the producers of said musical for "blasphemous libel."
OK, I know Britain's libel laws were apparently written by retarded monkeys high on acid, but blasphemy as a tort? Really? Isn't that the kind of thing that happens in Saudi Arabia? Oh, and you know the same groups that are going to sue this musical for blasphemy would cry "free speech!" if a Muslim group wanted to sue someone who defamed Muhammad.
Why is it that people don't understand that one of the side effects of free speech is that you hear things that offend you? Is this concept that hard to grasp?
