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.
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,
John E. Ritchie
