Radical gay activist to appear at Villanova

Catholic World News - February 14, 2012

Villanova University, a Catholic school in Pennsylvania administered by the Augustinian order, has invited a flamboyant homosexual activist to perform and conduct workshops for students.

Tim Miller, a “performance artist,” has been arrested repeatedly in demonstrations for homosexual rights and legal abortion. The National Endowment for the Arts once withdrew a grant that had been awarded to him because of complaints that his shows, which included nudity and simulated intercourse, were obscene. He is a member of ACT UP, the militant homosexual group that has disrupted Mass at American cathedrals.

Inviting Villanova undergraduates to the Miller performance, Heidi Rose, an associate professor of communications, said that his April workship would “take you through an intimate process of self-discovery and exploration, focusing on identity and culture, questions of diversity and difference, knowledge of self and others, etc.”

    Wow,these Villanova parents are paying dearly for this wallow in the sewer. They could do better by their children.

    Let's see...St. Joseph's University backed down and allowed lesbians into a Valentine's contest and now Villanova. Wonder what the new Philadelphia archbishop will do with these colleges of "higher learning" or is it only closing Catholic primary and secondary schools that are of any concern?
