|"If I have spoken evil, give testimony of the evil; but if well, why strikest thou me?" (John 18:23)|
The same blasphemous play, which portrays Our Lord and the Apostles as homosexuals, was canceled last week at Tarleton State University in Texas due to large peaceful protests.
"No. Blasphemy does not qualify as free speech," said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie. "Just as everyone is entitled to their own good reputation, Gallaudet University has no right to harm and slander the spotless reputation of the God-Man with blasphemy, then run to academic freedom for cover."
Call to protest: 202-651-5005
Gallaudet University was founded in 1864 by an Act of Congress, and President Abraham Lincoln signed its charter. Since then it has received generous federal tax dollars. In fact, the university now receives approximately 70% of its funding from the federal government according to its web site. Therefore, if the university does not cancel Corpus Christi, it will be using tax dollars to bash the faith of 68 million Catholics.
TFP Student Action is inviting its members to contact the president of Gallaudet University with a simple message: cancel the play.
