    The Most Rev. John D'Arcy, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, in a statement which may be found here, asks, "What is wrong with the text of this play [The Vagina Monologues]? It distorts the beautiful gift of human sexuality, clouding its richness so it becomes merely the seeking of pleasure. Sexuality in the Catholic tradition is always related to the gift of self to another. 'Sexuality is an enrichment of the whole person — body, emotions and soul — and it manifests its inmost meaning in leading the person to the gift of self in love.' (Familiaris Consortio, Pope John...

    Insight Scoop ^ | March 26, 2011 | Carl Olson
    This developing story is unbelievable. Well, not really. But, first, the believable: for some time now there has been a strong push by various faculty members and students at Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA) to have an on-campus production of "The Vagina Monologues" (TVM). Fomer president Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., while head of the Jesuit school (1998-2009), twice refused productions of the play; it was also vetoed last year. But now, it appears, TVM may very well be performed this year on the Gonzaga campus. Dr. Eric Cunningham, a professor of history at the school, wrote the following letter to The...

    Send your instant e-protest to the president of DePaul, Fr. Dennis Holtschneider This update contains disturbing news of a lewd theater play, scheduled for February 13-14 at DePaul University, America’s largest Catholic university with over 25,000 students. For several years, DePaul has hosted the V***** Monologues (asterisks added for modesty). The play promotes: * A Culture of Death, explicit discussions of sexuality, lesbian activity, and radical feminism. The feminist play by Eve Ensler tramples purity, modesty and is degrading to women. It has no place on any Catholic campuses. The production is a propaganda piece for pro-abortion, pro-homosexual activists, especially...

    ‘Monologues’ Planned at 41 Catholic Colleges(Last Update: 1/19/04)Cardinal Newman Society has launched its annual protest of the “Vagina Monologues,” a vulgar play that is reportedly planned for 41 Catholic campuses beginning in February 2004.That number, which is likely to increase in coming weeks, is already more than the 32 Catholic colleges and universities that hosted or sponsored the production last spring.  It was canceled last year at another 14 colleges and universities, thanks in part to the vocal opposition of Cardinal Newman Society and its members.The Campaign has already had an impact.  A student organizing the play at the...

    SOUTH BEND, Indiana, March 11, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - University of Notre Dame President, Father John Jenkins, C.S.C., announced today that he has approved campus performances of the lurid play, "The Vagina Monologues," on March 24-26.  It will be the sixth year since 2002 that Notre Dame has hosted the play.The Vagina Monologues is a sexually explicit and offensive play that favorably describes lesbian activity, group masturbation, and the reduction of sexuality to selfish pleasure.  In one scene, the lesbian seduction of a teenage girl is described as the girl's "salvation" that "raised her into a kind of heaven."  "The announcement...

    TFP Student Action launches Pray for Notre Dame. Join thousands of concerned students and parents in prayer and reparation. So many students and parents had trusted Notre Dame’s new president, Fr. John I. Jenkins, would restore moral order on campus by stopping two blatant anti-Catholic events from occurring year after year: “Queer Film Festival” and “V-Monologues.” However, hopes that Notre Dame would ban immoral events were shattered on April 5, when Fr. Jenkins issued a statement allowing pro-homosexual film festivals or events to continue at Our Lady’s university. Fr. Jenkins said, “[I] see no reason to prohibit performances of 'The...

    Kerry Walsh knew there'd be talk when a group of students proposed putting on "The Vagina Monologues" at the University of Notre Dame. The Eve Ensler play, based on discussions with 200 girls and women about their feelings for their anatomy, includes sections about homosexuality, orgasms and rape. "I knew from the get-go there was going to be some point where the university or someone would put their foot down and say, 'We really need to talk about this,'" said Walsh, who was a senior English major when she directed the play. Four years later, that time has come. The...

    Dear Members of the Providence College Community:             Having spent my first six months trying to learn about the campus culture, I would like to inaugurate a series of letters reflecting on some of the most debated questions that I have heard discussed since I began my ministry as president.  I begin with the question of what is the most appropriate way for the Providence College community to work together to prevent violence against women.  Some people feel passionately that  the college ought to sponsor a V-Day production of The Vagina Monologues, and I have often been queried about...

    TFP Student Action launches effort to restore modesty on Catholic campuses Feminist groups on twenty-one American Catholic Universities are planning a new assault against the Church’s traditional moral teaching, by organizing showings of the lewd play, “The V***** Monologues” in the weeks surrounding St. Valentine’s Day. (Asterisks added for modesty). TO SIGN YOUR E-CARD AND JOIN THE GROWING PROTEST, visit: http://tfp.org/student_action/php/monologues_2006.php The choice of St. Valentine’s Day is particularly offensive, since it is a feast day the Church instituted to honor three martyrs who died to defend the Faith. According to the Cardinal Newman Society1, the play is a conglomeration...

    New Oxford Review ^ | November 2005 | Jeffrey R. Jackson
    There is a particular understanding of the so-called gender wars that has been imparted to this society's collective psyche -- that women are angelic victims who are oppressed by men, their perpetual abusers. As such, women of recent generations have been brought up to "empower" and "assert" themselves against our "patriarchy," from which they strive to be independent by adopting masculine, competitive ways. At the same time, the men of these same generations have been raised to be less assertive and more sensitive -- in other words, feminized -- all in the interest of achieving "gender balance" or equality.

    College administrators have been enthusiastic supporters Eve Ensler’s play The Vagina Monologues and schools across the nation celebrate “V-Day” (short for Vagina Day) every year. But when the College Republicans at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island rained on the celebrations of V-Day by inaugurating Penis Day and staging a satire called The Penis Monologues, the official reaction was horror. Two participating students, Monique Stuart and Andy Mainiero, have just received sharp letters of reprimand and have been placed on probation by the Office of Judicial Affairs. The costume of the P-Day “mascot” — a friendly looking “penis” named Testaclese,...

    It has persuaded women from Detroit to Delhi to celebrate their anatomy, but in Uganda, an attempt to stage The Vagina Monologues has been foiled by the forces of Christian conservatism.American author Eve Ensler's controversial theatre piece, which celebrates female genitals through a series of soliloquies, has been branded 'indecent and tasteless' by a Ugandan government minister, while church groups have described it as pornographic and 'anti-male'. Rarely-used powers of censorship have been reinvoked to demand drastic script alterations, including the deletion of references to lesbianism and the removal of the crucial word 'vagina' from the title. The Vagina Monologues...

    Cardinal Newman Society's mission is the renewal of Catholic higher education, so we can hardly be pleased about losing historically Catholic colleges to secularization.  But there comes a time when the bishops have to insist on truth in advertising.  Two formerly Catholic colleges in Rochester, New York, now have honesty--if not fidelity to their founding principles--on their side.  Thank you, Bishop Clark! Meanwhile, exciting new colleges like Southern Catholic College outside Atlanta are gearing up to take the place of the lost institutions.  (Southern Catholic opens in the fall.)  To paraphrase Darwin, it's a process of supernatural selection! ============================FRIDAY, FEBRUARY...

    The Rev. John M. D'Arcy, bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend diocese of the Catholic Church, released the following statement regarding the production of "The Vagina Monologues" at The University of Notre Dame. It has been customary at this time of the year for many institutions of higher learning, including, regrettably, Catholic institutions, to present something called "The Vagina Monologues." Alas, even our beloved University of Notre Dame is presenting it again, as it has for the past several years, under the official sponsorship of three departments. The bishop is the teacher within his diocese, bearing special responsibility before God...

(The text that follows contains adult language and themes and is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised). Several years ago, a radical feminist philosopher visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she gave a lecture attacking what she called “male science.” This theorist confidently explained that science was part of a discredited oppressive, patriarchal, white-male, bourgeois legacy. It was tainted to the core by sexism, classicism, and racism. Women, she...
