Students at a Massachusetts charter school will perform a biblical play of Genesis with gay characters, despite objections from many who say it's offensive to Christians, CBN News reports. The play is a 1998 comedy called "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told," and in a letter to parents, administrators at the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Public Charter School said it was consistent with the school's philosophy and appropriate for a high school audience. But they did admit to receiving email petitions and phone calls describing the production as "blasphemous and hateful." According to some of the messages, opponents said they planned to organize protests through local churches.
