Manchester Passion: Did It Work?The Brits pulled off their Passion Play. Story from the BBC here. The Last Supper was fish and chips. Jesus was condemned to death for "inciting religious hatred" while wearing an American orange prison uniform. Gospel of Judas promoters did not foresee their hero taking a call on his cell phone. (Church of England) Bishop Nigel McCulloch, said: "Manchester Passion has a sincerity and an ability to shock and connect that is not far removed from how it must have been on the first Good Friday." There's a video link from a news report on the page linked above.
