Scotland’s largest teacher’s union, The Education Institute of Scotland,–which boasts representation of around eighty percent of Scotland’s public educators–is hosting a line-up of LGBTQ and drag performers to celebrate Pride Month as part of its campaign to promote sexual indoctrination in public schools.
As part of the School’s Almost Out, Celebrate Pride program, the union will host an evening of LGBTQ performances to “celebrate Pride and the end of the school year.”
“The pandemic has seen two years of cancelled Pride events, and has overall had an enormous impact on the LGBT community, as well as many performers losing income,” the event website reads. “The EIS are pleased to host a fantastic line-up of Scotland-based LGBT artists which includes spoken word/poetry, play excerpts, drag and music performances.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity to unwind and have fun, so put your feet up and take a well-deserved break,” the event website continues. “The event is free and open to all members, and participants are welcome to include any members of their household in the celebration.”
As part of the event line-up, among other transsexual and drag performances, will be one particularly blasphemous performance titled The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven. It will be performed by Jo Clifford, a feminist drag performer, who will present Jesus as a “transgender woman” when he returns to Earth. Laughably, Clifford says the performance is not meant to be sacrilegious.
The Christian Institute’s education officer, John Denning has described the play as “deeply offensive” for Christian members of the EIS.
“This play deliberately re-imagines Jesus as a trans woman and puts words into his mouth that he never said, misrepresenting him. That’s deeply distressing and offensive for many Christians who value him and his teaching above all.
“It is hard to see how a teaching union justifies using the subscriptions paid by its members, many of whom are themselves Christians, to promote this play.”
