V*-Monologues in Happy Decline

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Feb 15, 2012

Our friends at the Cardinal Newman Society, who both track and discourage such things, have reported that the incidence of the performance of the Vagina Monologues on Catholic campuses has declined significantly. Only nine Catholic colleges are scheduled to host the play this year.

Of course that is nine too many. But it is very clear that the Society's relentless attention to this practice has led to its decline over the past few years. Our Catholic World News service has also played a role simply by reporting on the issue. That's also been true of the relationships, including intern and employment replationships, between Catholic colleges and Planned Parenthood, or other abortion providers.

Sometimes getting the word out can make a big difference. Alumni begin to call in and raise questions. Administrators are (sometimes) forced to make decisions. Those who push what is morally objectionable begin to answer to a community. Sometimes they start looking over their shoulders.

Those who do evil hate the light (Jn 3:20). This kind of exposure is an important service not only to the Church and to the students at these universities—whether they recognize it or not—but to the common good.
