Subject: RE: Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge
Indeed. As Bob Dylan wrote

In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you
You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

IMO the Jesus story isn't nearly so powerfull without the Judas character in it.

I think you can appreciate a performer as a whole without having to agree with 100% of what they write. Otherwise your listening pleasure gets rather restricted. I don't have problems with people holding and speaking or singing about their own deeply held beliefs that are different than mine, until they tell me to shut up about mine because mine might offend them. Then my ability to listen to them diminishes dramatically, often towards zero.
