Transsexual Jesus sparks protests

Did anyone else see this article on the BBC site?

I must admit my first reaction was 'Oh no, not again.' By that I mean:

Christians who see it as their job to defend God.

Christians making a big fuss about something that wouldn't be noticed otherwise.

Christians moralising instead of spreading the Kingdom of God.

Personally it me me stop and think particularly about the relevance of gender in the next life. Jesus, when talking to the Sadducees made it clear that marriage, as we know it, doesn't apply in heaven so perhaps there is no place for gender at all.

Quite. What a horrible way to react to someone's play dealing with issues of faith and gender. Thank God s/he is bigger than our pettyminded churches.
