A poster advertising a new play has been banned from Angel underground station in London after regulators decided it was “likely to offend ethnic, religious or other major groups”. The poster, for the play Fat Christ by Gavin Davis, shows the playwright wearing boxer shorts and standing in a crucifixion pose.
Reverend Stephen Coles, of St Thomas’s Church in nearby Finsbury Park criticised the move, saying: “The itch to censor is something one should resist. We’re grown-ups and Jesus can defend himself. One has to be a little wary of indulging the super-sensitive.”
