On March 28, at the 10th annual Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Awards, the best Off Off Broadway honor went to the anti-Christian play by Paul Rudnick, “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told.”
William Donohue took note of this award with a news release to the media:
“If the Catholic League had given an award to an anti-gay play, we would have come under fire from every cultural maven in the artistic community. But when gays give awards to plays that bash Christians, that’s perfectly acceptable. Of course, there is no such thing as an anti-gay play—there are only anti-Christian plays. GLAAD lies when it says it is opposed to defamation. Indeed it rewards it. As long as it’s Christians getting defamed, that is.
“When ‘The Most Fabulous Story’ surfaced in December, I said that I had no intention of seeing a ‘routine homosexual play’ that featured ‘full-frontal male nudity, filthy language, discussions of body parts, butch lesbians, effeminate gay men, ranting against nature, damning God for AIDS, etc.’ I can only guess that the reason why this play captured the Off Off Broadway award and ‘Corpus Christi’ didn’t win the Broadway and Off Broadway award is because the boys managed to keep their pants on in the Terrence McNally play.”
