Scandal - Catholic University Puts Mary Amid Prostitutes!

Scandal - Catholic University Puts Mary Amid Prostitutes

If someone hung a picture of your mother amid images of prostitutes and pornography, would you be upset? Would you protest? I’m sure you would.

In fact, the Blessed Mother is being insulted in this fashion at the Catholic University of Dayton, where an “art” exhibit in the Rike Center Gallery depicts “Mary amid images of prostitutes, pornography and firearms that has shocked some students and professors…”
(Dayton Daily News, 03-07-05)

Even worse - the University of Dayton is one of the nation’s ten largest Catholic universities, founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary, whose particular mission is to honor the Mother of God. Yet today they promote this blasphemy against Our Lady.

Please click here to SIGN YOUR INSTANT E-PROTEST to Dr. Curran, president of the University of Dayton and demand its removal.

After you sign your protest, give his office a call. Be polite and firm. Tell him how you feel about it. Ask him to remove the exhibit immediately and issue an apology. Tell him you cannot understand how a Catholic institution dedicated to honor Mary can insult her like this.

Please call today.

Dr. Daniel J. Curran, Ph.D.
Direct: 937-229-4122
Main: 937-229-1000
Fax: 937-229-3396

I just got off the phone with Dr. Curran’s office. The receptionist claimed that the offensive exhibit was just an exercise of “academic freedom.” My blood pressure went up a few notches, to put it mildly.

You see, Our Lady of Fatima asked us to make reparation for the sins committed against her Immaculate Heart. It’s heartbreaking that Catholics are insulting Our Lady when they ought to be honoring her.

Please act without delay. Thank you for your love for Our Lady.

You would do a good dead if you send this message to your friends and acquaintances.

Trusting in the triumph of her Immaculate Heart,

27 After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, “Follow me.” 28 And he got up, left everything, and followed him. 29 Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house; and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others sitting at the table with them. 30 The Pharisees and their scribes were complaining to his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 31 Jesus answered, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; 32 I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance."
Luke 5

The unblemished ministering to sinners. Sounds about right to me.

And?

What’s your point?

Do you think that this exhibit is wrong, or what?

I realize that the Lord came to save sinners, but something like this exhibition has GOT to be sinful. JMHO.

It is an outrage and we should take some serious action…I sent my e-mail, hopefully others do the same.
