Insulting and degrading to Christians and Southerners.
11 February 2011 | by (Martinez, GA USA) – See all my reviews

This production pokes fun at Christians and Southerners. Written by a Jew, it degrades the Christian religion by portraying Southerners and Christians as being "stupid" and "gullible" fools. I find it insulting to my Southern heritage and the Christian religion. I am an agnostic. This is my opinion and it is what I see. Maybe Christians and Southerners are stupid and gullible fools for not seeing this! The Jews are waging a religious war against Christians and this is another "Make war by deception" tactic. Southerners are made to look extremely dumb both with their dialect and mental capabilities. I rate this play a "0".
