Action Alert!

ceci n'est pas une pipe

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 10, 2004

A play based on Cardinal Law's depositions in the sex abuse cases has opened in Chicago. Not to worry, the New York Times was there.

At several points in the play Cardinal Law's self-righteousness and his attempts to portray himself as a victim infuriate audience members. Mr. Sherman, the actor who plays him, said this makes the role "very tough." The outrage sometimes spills over into condemnations of Mr. Sherman himself. After one performance last week a woman in the audience yelled an expletive at him.

Of course, Mr. Sherman is not currently a member of the Congregation for Bishops.
