Red-Caped Catholic Loons Protest Broadway's The Testament Of Mary

The red-caped Catholic loons of Tradition, Family, & Property are very upset about a new Broadway play about the BVM.
The Testament of Mary is the latest in a wave of blasphemies that has been building for years. It is noteworthy that besides being written by an avowed homosexual, at the Walter Kerr Theatre The Testament of Mary is being performed and directed by open lesbians, namely, Irish actress Fiona Shaw and Deborah Warner. The gravity of the sin of blasphemy is greater when it expresses heresy, by denying the truths revealed by God and taught by the Magisterium of the Church.  In denying the divinity of Christ, His Resurrection, and the veracity of the Gospels, The Testament of Mary is not only blasphemous but heretical. It presents a caricature of the Blessed Virgin Mary and implicitly denies all of the dogmas the Church has defined in her regard.
From their post about the protest:
On Monday, April 22, The Testament of Mary by Colm Tóibín officially “opened” on Broadway, to defame the honor of Our Lady and cast doubt upon Our Lord’s Divinity. When theatergoers were warned that the play was blasphemous, they adroitly hid behind sophistic arguments such as; it’s only fiction, this is just artistic expression, or the catchall phrase, respect freedom of speech. Fiction must have fictional characters not use the sacred person of Our Lady and Our Lord, and artistic expression and freedom of speech are not absolute rights!
