The Charisma News – which is NOT a newspaper geared toward people with Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent, rather an organization that provides news, analysis, prophetic commentary and teachings for charismatic and Pentecostal Christians – is reporting that students at the University of San Diego, a Catholic college, are protesting a drag show held on campus “mceed by Manila Luzon, a professional drag queen and openly homosexual man who advocates same-sex ‘marriage.'” Quote, unquote. (I love that they put “marriage” in quotations.) Students opposing the show are holding a prayer vigil on campus at Plaza Menor starting at 6:30 tonight, if you happen to be in the area and feel like joining. Or throwing tomatos. In addition, members of the Catholic community will protest at the main entrances to the Catholic university. “This event affects all of us here on this campus,” says Ailsa Tirado, a USD sophomore. “It misleads the participants, students, society and the body of Christ by telling us that cross-dressing and acting upon disordered sexual preference are in line with Catholic social teaching. That is not the truth.” Carmen Vasquez, USD’s vice president of student affairs, disagrees and claims that the drag show IS consistent with Catholic teachings. “The show as scheduled violates neither the university’s mission nor any university policies. The celebration of gender expression supports the Church’s teaching on the dignity of the human person and does not promote either behavior or lifestyle that is contrary to the teachings of the Church,” she says. And as for Manila, she just tweeted: “What does one perform when u hve thousands forming a prayer vigil against ur show?” Hmmm. Might I suggest opening with “Like a Prayer”? Followed by “Losing My Religion.” Then, for good measure, be sure to rip up a picture of the pope!
