Here is another post for that "fundie" website to spew their vitriol at me simply because I disagree with their liberal ways:
There is an article here about Bishop D'Arcy's condemnation of the V-monologues that the President of Notre Dame plans to allow (again!) on their campus. I had to read this awful play as an undergrad Theatre major at Florida State for my "Gender, Race, and Performance" class. Unfortunately, I was the only one in the class who raised objections about the play and its denigration of women. For those who have not read it (which is a good thing), it basically defines a woman by her vagina. How, I ask, is that upholding a women's dignity? How is that liberating of a woman? It does not liberate, but further confines a woman, stripping her of all dignity that is owed to her by virtue of being a creature of God! Our culture has become so sex-obsessed that it only sees the world and humanity through the lens of sexual power and dominance. As we move further and further away from God, we slide ever deeper into the abyss of immorality and licentiousness, and closer to Satan.
This kind of demonic influence can only be overcome through prayer and fasting. I am in full support of Bishop D'Arcy that this play has no place on a Catholic University and is in direct contradiction of Ex Corde Ecclesiae:
“We start from the truth that has been revealed to us in the Word of God, the person of Jesus Christ, and the teaching of His Church." The idea that truth will emerge from a discussion in which many points of view are represented both “disrespects revealed truth” and “separates the search for truth from the certainty of faith.” “A decision not to sponsor the play is not only consistent with academic freedom but is a right use of such freedom for it shows respect for the truth, for the common good and the rights of others.”
It will be interesting to see if Bishop D'Arcy follows up with any ecclesiastical discipline for the President if he decides to go through with allowing the play on campus.
