Our Violence and Your Violence By Chris Knight
After writing about this following horror, I will need to devote some time to intense prayer in the hope of healing:
“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. Because of the city’s support for the theatre festival, the bishops cannot agree with their auspices of another municipal project marking the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia’s birth, they said on the www.cirkev.cz website. Martin Glaser, director of the Brno National Theatre that organises the World of Theatre festival, reacted by saying that this festival and the Re:publika festival, which the church refused to join, are two separate events though both are supported by the Brno City Hall.
“They are each prepared by a different city-run organisation and different people...It is absurd to punish the city of Brno or the Re:publika festival for the fact that the World of Theatre festival is also held in the city,” Glaser said. He apologised to the organisers of Re:publika and said the application of the eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth principle is “more than strange.” 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.”
It is strange to see this sort of cultural degeneration going into the heartland of Eastern Europe, but it goes to show that nowhere is safe anymore from the forces of darkness, decay and degeneracy.
