Catholic students are hoping the notoriously lewd play by feminist activist Eve Ensler, The V-Monologues, does not disgrace the campus of Saint Mary’s College of California.
The offensive play is scheduled to show on February 11 at the Soda Center. If the play is not canceled, students will be invited to see a production full of explicit discussions of sexuality and sexual encounters, including lesbian activity and masturbation.
This is how one student described the play: “It was a horrible exhibit of vice, lust, and infidelity. Everything about the play was decidedly opposed to everything the Church teaches on abortion, contraception, holy matrimony, modesty, chastity, vulgarity, humility, and reverence.”
What would Saint
de la Salle say about
Over the years many Catholic colleges and universities have canceled the play due to its indecent, immoral and sinful content. TFP Student Action is asking its members to urge the president of Saint Mary’s to ban the play and avoid scandal.
In fact, Saint Mary’s web site states: “We're a Catholic, Lasallian, liberal arts college, and we're rooted in the life and work of Saint John Baptist de la Salle, founder of the Christian Brothers and the patron saint of teachers. Our traditions and heritage inform everything we do.”
The right course of action is clear: To remain true to its Catholic heritage, Saint Mary’s should cancel the immoral show.
Contact Saint Mary’s with your concern. Please be firm, polite and respectful.
