A Christian school in Nebraska has allegedly fired its superintendent for appearing in a local production of The Producers. Because that show is gay, apparently.
Harold Scott has been an educator for 22 years and superintendent at the school started by Calvary Community Church since 2011. In an email response to questions Wednesday, he said he was told the reason for his termination is that Calvary’s pastor, Dr. Carl Godwin, felt his participation would have a negative reflection on Calvary Community Church and Parkview Christian School. Scott played Max, one of the main characters in Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” at The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley. The play is about two men who scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a Broadway flop. It includes jokes about Nazis, homosexuals and show business, and includes gay characters. Scott said he was fired Saturday.
