Posted on 04/29/2013 5:17:57 PM PDT by Third Person
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Students at Carnegie Mellon say its freedom of expression, but the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh calls it inappropriate and disrespectful.
At an annual art school parade, a female student dressed up as the pope, and was naked from the waist down while she passed out condoms.
Even more, witnesses say the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a cross.
The Diocese has asked CMU to take action.
I think we all know that when were growing up we do stupid things but to cross over the line in this instance shouldnt happen with anybody, Bishop David Zubik said.
CMU issued a statement, saying We are continuing our review of the incident. If our community standards or laws were violated, we will take appropriate action.

A cross at a liberal’s place of worship? Say it isn’t so!
Even more, witnesses say the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a cross.
So, she was a cross dreeeer?
Some people will do anything for “Art”.
So incredibly asinine its beyond my ability to respond. Hope the university isn’t letting in any students like this (or, shudder, hiring any faculty like this?!?)
Your either naked or dressed
May I recommend that next time the naked woman ‘dresses’ as Mohammed and see how that works and what getting stoned then beheaded feels like.
A naked person cannot be dressed as the Pope. A partially-naked person can be partially dressed as the Pope.
They’ll just go it from the opposite direction and all will be well.
She was a cross un-dresser.
So she was a cross dresser?
sorry it’s been a long day.
Naked or dressed? Which is it? This only adds to the controversy.
Obviously she was not dressed as the Pope,since she was naked from the waist down, and none of us have ever seen a Pope dressed that way, and her plumbing was wrong too,
In actuality she was dressed as a fool, a damned fool and acting like the whore she is.
Funny how they never do this to Muslims or Islam.
Funny how that “free expression” is always aimed at Christians.
We knew what you meant.
She wasn’t riding on a seven headed beast and drinking out of a golden goblet, was she?
I’m glad someone does...
That is the direction zero likes! BOHIC
You win the internet.
May I recommend that next time the naked woman dresses as Mohammed...
Kind of hard to shave your pubic hair in the shape
of a pressure cooker.
You're calling for back-up?
This is just a stupid young women with no self-respect. Years from now, she will likely regret comporting herself so foolishly for all to see.
I'm not going to ask how you know that.
Or she’ll run for office. (Says nully, who dated a gal who campaigned for governor in the nude)...
What’s that we hear? The university’s hiring her as a “professor of community organizing?”
The best way to approach this is from an unexpected direction. That is, instead of objecting to what she did, object to her doing something totally imaginary. Since relatively few people saw her, it will throw a monkey wrench into things. For example, a rewrite of the story:
“Students at Carnegie Mellon say its freedom of expression, but the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh calls it inappropriate and disrespectful. At an annual art school parade, a female student dressed up as the “child wife of Mohammed”, and was naked from the waist down while she passed out condoms. Even more, witnesses say the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a crescent.”
If *this* message was released, imagine the hypocritical hysteria from all involved in the offensive display. Not only would they babble something about her looking like the Pope, not the wife of Mohammed, but they would fall over themselves apologizing to Muslims while sniveling: “Don’t kill us!”
I think it would make a hilarious lesson to them.
Man makes a YouTube video about Islam...gets arrested. Student mocks the Catholic Church and Christianity..at an institution that receives federal funds....crickets
Intolerance on parade.
If you disagree with this religion, join a different one.
yeah and ps don’t forget the flour this time
Well, these are the kind of people the Lord came to save and as hard as it is I will continue to pray for their repentance. Sometimes I get so tired of this but if the Lord did it so can I.
I have a headache from not blowing a gasket. Lord give me strength!
Double Dare her to dress up as Mohammed!
aint it already a pressure cooker
This is what they do when someone opposes their sacrament of infanticide called abortion. No wonder they are called the Culture of Death.
The Left will resort to any tactic to pursue their agenda. Someday they may resort to cutting off heads along with their Islamic extremist friends.
PING! Please other Catholics to this thread. We need to blanket this person in prayer & beg God’s Mercy for this disgusting & blasphemous display. It sickens me that this happen only a few miles from my house.
See why I’m “surroundedbyblue” ;-)
We are continuing our review of the incident. If our community standards or laws were violated, we will take appropriate action.
“In actuality she was dressed as a fool, a damned fool and acting like the whore she is.”
Absolutely. If she thinks this reflected poorly on the Pope, then she’s an idiot. The only person that looked like a jackass here was her. I live not far from CMU (I could walk & in fact, did jog around their campus Saturday morning), and even the hardcore lefties I happen to know thought this was distasteful & stupid.
My take on it is a bit stronger: I see it as downright blasphemous.
RIMMER Appeal applications, Listy. Character testimonials. What's this?
LISTER Kris found out about the shower thing; she went ballistic. It's just a little present to say 'sorry'.
RIMMER A bag of flour?
LISTER No, two bags. I'm in the Tank, in the middle of Deep Space. I can't just get on the blower to Interflora, you know! Flour - Flours! It's the closest I could get.
RIMMER You romantic fool.
LISTER You know how hard it is getting this stuff? I had to nick this from the bakery. She'll appreciate that.
RIMMER I can just see her reading the card: "Dear Kris, I'm really sorry for ogling you and the girls in the shower yesterday for three gob-smacking hours of steamy fun. To make up for it, and to indicate how truly sorry I am, here's two bags of self-raising. Something I didn't need any help with yesterday."
Crucifixion is a horrible way to die.
College students always try to be as outrageous as possible, and the Catholic Church is an easy target of the sex-obsessed crowd.
Actually, she’s probably aborted a child and this acting out is a way to justify herself.
The very public pubic “mutilation,” the sign of the cross in shaving the pubic hair is interesting.
Bet she’s lapsed Catholic.
Probably. Pray for her.
The reality is as follows: If Catholics stop giving CMU money because of this they would act. Unfortunately it wont happen. Catholics voted en masse for Obama so there is no reason to believe this would upset them enough to act.
I wonder if there is a single priest in all this land who will dare mention the idea to his flock?
For this poor soul, this very confused young woman
Oh my Jesus,
Forgive us our sins,
Save us from the fires of hell,
And lead all souls to Heaven,
Especially those in most need
of thy Divine Mercy.
To #3. Maybe it was just an “X” marks the spot.
She did put the “Pit” in Pittsburgh, didn’t she?
And her parents are spending tens of thousands of dollars for her to get a higher education? They could have saved money by just buying her a red light bulb and renting a motel room.
“C”atholics are upset. “C”atholics didn’t vote for Obama....catholics (small c) did. There’s a difference.
Since you are close, maybe you can answer this question.
She was walking around with her female organs hanging out, how did she avoid arrest. Or is there not an ordinance against that.
That’s an excellent question. My only answer is this is a really REALLY lib part of town....as bad as it gets in Pittsburgh. The cops look the other way at alot, but they’re sure to harass the pro-lifers at the East Liberty abortion clinic every Saturday morning.
About the most profound thing you can say, I think.
Beat Madonna to the punch!
