Which means it's time to take stock of the Catholic colleges that are joining in what has become a yearly event, the presentation of a certain play with the initials "TVM"
(You know, I get enough hits to my blog from people entering weird, scary combinations of words in search engines. I'm trying to minimize that.)
Now, I've actually seen much of this play - as it was presented on HBO last year, I think. If you can get past being offended by it, you'll find that it's really just....stupid. And the part that isn't stupid is almost criminal, and the celebration of this scene - which is really an approving account of statutory rape - reeks of hypocricy.
Anyway, here's the list of 43 Catholic colleges that are sponsoring presentations of this play this year - that's up from 28 last year. Un - believable. The page, courtesy of the Cardinal Newman Society, includes contact information for college presidents, for your hellraising pleasure, especially if you're an alumn or a parent...or a student.
