Migrants are overrunning Europe. And a million more are expected. Coming with the Islamic trend in the West: in Norway, all rapes in the past 5 years were committed by Muslims — one 12-year-old rape victim was told by her Muslim rapist, “he had the right to do exactly as he wanted to a woman.” “Why?” “Because that is how it was in his religion. Women did not have rights or opinions, he was in charge.”
The hijrah is catapulting Europe back centuries. But in the Czech Republic, the hot new play depicts a total inversion of reality: a Muslim woman raped not just by a Christian, but by Christianity’s central and most revered figure, Jesus himself. This is what the Czechs want to see: Muslims as victims in a fantasy in which they, as the inhabitants of a nation with a Christian heritage, bear all the guilt.
Reality is going to crash in on them soon enough. When it does, some of them might wish they had produced a play that more faithfully depicted present-day realities. But to have done that would have been “islamophobic.”
Brno, April 19 (CTK) – Czech bishops have distanced themselves from the performance “Our Violence and Your Violence,” in which Jesus rapes a Muslim woman, in the programme of the May theatre festival in Brno, in a letter they sent to Brno Mayor Petr Vokral (ANO) and released on their website on Thursday….
The controversial performance, directed by Croat Oliver Frljic, is staged jointly by the Croat National Theatre in Rijeka and the Slovenian Mladinsko Theatre in Ljubljana.
Cardinal Dominik Duka, primate of the Czech Catholic Church, called the play “the sale of Christianity and its ideals.” He also said this concept offended not only Christians, but also Muslims and all Czechs.
The bishops of the Roman Catholic dioceses and the Apostolic Exarch representing the Greek Catholic Church dealt with the theatre performance at the plenary session of the Czech Bishops’ Conference in Nitra, west Slovakia.
In the past days, the festival organiser, the National Theatre in Brno, rejected the effort to withdraw the performance from the programme, which the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) and Communists (KSCM) demanded in the municipal assembly.
Festival director Martin Glaser stressed that the topic of this year’s festival was freedom. Though Frljic’s performance is an extreme art expression, this is a legitimate part of theatre, he said….
The performance offers a view of Europe taken unawares by the migrant crisis. It asks unpleasant questions about religion, Europe’s stance on the situation in the Middle East and different approaches to terrorist attacks in Europe, Baghdad and Kabul in a provocative way, the festival programme managers say.
The performance for 200 viewers scheduled for May 26 is sold out….
On Wednesday, Orthodox priest Libor Halik, who often protests against abortion, was standing with a big wooden cross outside the Husa na Provazku theatre where the controversial play would be shown.
On the other hand, colleagues from other theatres have supported the Brno festival organisers.
