Students at a high school in Massachusetts are opening theater doors today for a free performance of scenes from their upcoming musical, a tale about a bisexual father torn between his family and his "gay" lover.
Seven students of Concord-Carlisle High School in Concord, Mass., are cast in the school's rendition of "Falsettos," a Tony-award-winning production described by a local newspaper as "a musical comedy about life, love and loss in which the characters renegotiate their definitions of family."
But one organization in Massachusetts is objecting to how the plot redefines "family" and pointing to some of musical's content â€“ including the songs "My Father's a Homo", "Everybody Hates His Parents" and "Four Jews in a Room B----ing" â€“ as blatantly offensive.
Why have Americans come to tolerate, embrace and even champion many things that would have horrified their parents' generation? Get David Kupelian's "The Marketing of Evil" at the WND Superstore.
"Community residents are very concerned about the production's vulgar sexuality and anti-family message," writes MassResistance â€“ a local group that counters promotion of homosexuality in the state â€“ on its blog entry. "Not content with inflicting this on the community in the weeks before Christmas, the school has added a sneak preview scheduled on Thanksgiving Day."
