CNS Introduces a Kinder, Gentler Anti-V-Day Campaign

The Cardinal Newman Society, a self-proclaimed watchdog organization of Catholic higher education, has introduced it's Campaign to Stop the V-Monologues 2007. This year, instead of harassing college presidents (I'm guessing mostly because it didn't work to well), they are trying to show how much they care about women by offering support and funding to V-Day organizers who instead schedule "alternatives" to The Vagina Monologues. Please take note that only one of these "alternatives" are even tangentally related to violence against women and none of them are designed to be fundraisers for local and international anti-violence organizations, which is a major goal of V-Day.

CNS also quotes extensively from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Catholic writers on the "nature" of women and sexuality, but, as if to further prove my point that they really don't care about violence against women, leaves out this paragraph:
2356 Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them.

    Corrections:
    1. Follow your own link to the CNS website and you'll see that we have indeed contacted college presidents and urged our members to do so.
    2. It has worked well: 32 V-Monologues performances on Catholic campuses in 2003, 22 last year, likely fewer this year.
    3. We have encouraged students to present alternatives that are fundraisers.
    4. Note that the V-Monologues itself is only tangentially related to violence against women -- it is primarily about gleeful shouts of vulgarity, group masturbation, obsession with women's physical traits, rejection of morality, and so on.

    Kudos on the Catechism citation on rape -- we most certainly should have cited it ourselves, since the V-Monologues declares the adult seduction (i.e. rape) of a teenage girl her "salvation" that raised her into "a kind of heaven." Thanks for helping make the point that this is a sick and outrageous play.
