    The only Hamilton I know had a first name Alexander. Somehow I doubt this is about him.

      It is, actually.

      Sorta.

    I have not seen the play, but I do understand that it is about Alexander Hamilton. The point with historical dramas is that they are a better mirror on the time that they are written in than the time that they are written about.

      Yeah.

      But why is a church doing this?

    I have seen the play, it is based on a biography of Alexander Hamilton, and I actually liked it. The right wing line is that making the historical figures minorities was an affront, and I get that.

    I’m usually not a fan of that kind of thing, but given what has happened in this country since that musical rendition of Alexander Hamilton’s life was first released 7 years ago, my opinion has evolved.

    Specifically, that this dude was so captivated by the American story that he could see the beauty and value in it for all Americans of every race is kind of quaint. In fact, the race haters have decided, since 2020 of course, that the musical they loved in 2015 is now insulting to blacks and Latinos.

    As for this silly church, all I ask is why? What was the point? To what end? Did you not understand copyright laws? And why is a church putting on a production of a mainstream Broadway production anyway? Wasn’t there more noble things to be doing with that money (I’m sure it wasn’t cheap)?

    Good grief people, churches should be about Our Father’s business, not about cultural relevance.

      This is my issue here; far more important than the original play Miranda wrote (separate issue).

      Agree completely.

      Oh its just about making Hamilton who was an evil prick and basically created the plan to create the federal reserve into a minority? I thought it was probably some gay crap. I’m kinda relieved.

        Nah. They romanticize him quite a bit.

        Like you, my thoughts were that he was all about this overly powerful, fiat money loving federal government that has destroyed the country.

      That only means anything to people who make that a priority- which does NOT include most of today’s churchian franchises.

        Indeed.

    “Jesus Hates Stupid” needs to become a meme.
