German Jesuit: Jesus Was Blasphemous to the Core
Edit: a few days ago the Diocese decided to respond to the blasphemous play, Golgotha Picnic, so they sent a Jesuit. What are you complaining about? Even Jesus committed blasphemy, said the Jesuit.
Yesterday the theater piece "Golgotha Picnic" was performed -- at its conclusion a sanguine Jesuit Priest, Breulmann said: Even Jesus had as his last words, "My God why hast thou forsaken me" which is at its core, blasphemous.
Hamburg (kath.net / CBA / red) On Monday evening in Hamburg, the controversial play "Golgotha Picnic" was performed in Germany. The SSPX has previously called for protests yesterday evening and had also called for a vigil outside the theater. According to the CBA the protest was attended by about 20 people, according to the "Star" magazine, there were 60 participants. Following the play there was a panel discussion at which the ministers who attended, a Catholic school rector, Jesuit, Father Hermann Breul.
He was "neither amused nor shocked, but thoughtful," said the degreed philosopher of religion. "It was strong stuff, but I have found points where I can say, this piece has something." It raises questions and has an >>intensely deep grammar<<. If you have read Nietzsche, not all of its alienation from God is strange, said Breulmann. Actually it poses a question about all freedom of art, if the aesthetic of the piece has crossed any borders. I would not, however, characterize the play as blasphemous. "I would have thought that the Good Lord would have let things be cool," said the elderly Jesuit. Breulman, not wanting to associate himself with the criticisms of the protesters said: even Jesus said with his last words, "My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" which in its core would have been blasphemous.
