Drew Mariani Gave Me a Great Christmas Present!

Earlier today on the Drew Mariani Show on "Relevant" Radio, Drew discussed the movie Milk, starring Sean Penn. The movie shows someone's butt and there is some male/male kissing. Drew and his guest, Dr. Mugridge, expressed their outrage that the movie was not considered morally offensive by the U.S. Bishops movie reviewer. The movie received the next worst rating, "L - limited adult audience." They did not mention this or that there is also a separate rating for adults in general "A III - Adults." L states that some of the material is problematic. The reviewer did give the movie a good review as a whole, though. So I guess there are thinking people who work for the U.S. bishops.

An anonymous woman called the show to share stories of the all-girls Catholic school at which she works. The school has a lesbian support group which is sponsored by the guidance counselors. Lesbian couples have even come together to the school sponsored dances.

This is all great news. I wish this school could openly exhibit what they are doing, but any steps forward are good. Thank you, Drew. Thank you for reminding me that there a lot of good people in our church that are trying to make it better.

A Faithful Catholic

From your expressed perspective, you like the result, but there is that pesky hypocrisy involved?

On the other hand, this way there might be the potential for a whole new area for misrepresentation lawsuits.

In the public schools, such clubs, (if the exist) are fine and dandy by my standards.

And my children are told that this is what one can expect in the public schools.

Terry's right, however. Jim Smith & CO. would have a field day with fraud/misrepresentation settlements.

I can't believe anyone still listens to Drew Mariani.
