CMU Parade Controversy Over Naked Woman, Dressed As Pope
KDKA Pittsburgh ^ | April 29th, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 04/29/2013 5:17:57 PM PDT by Third Person

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Students at Carnegie Mellon say it’s 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 we’re growing up we do stupid things but to cross over the line in this instance shouldn’t 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.”

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.

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.

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 it’s 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.

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.

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.

“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."

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.

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.

And lead all souls to Heaven,
Especially those in most need

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.

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.
