Clergy and Lay People Protest Siena Heights’ “V-Monologues” Performance

Approximately 60 clergy and lay Catholics gathered on the sidewalk outside Siena Heights University to protest the University’s student performances of “The Vagina Monologues” on April 19 and 20.

The crowd gathered for prayer, reflection, the Rosary,and the Litany of the Saints, and also read Diocese of Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea’s statement about the production.

Two priests joined a crowd made up of Adrian, Mich. Residents, as well as members of local Knights of Columbus council, Lenawee County Right to Life, Jackson County Right to Life, and Monroe County Right to Life. Many held up signs protesting the student production.

According to protestor Robert Burke, on Saturday a lone male protestor stood nearby with an opposing sign that read: "God Loves Vaginas and Hates Pedophiles."

“All in all we had a very blessed rally on both nights,” said Adrian resident Robert Burke. “It was the first such public protest against the likes of this hijacking of Catholic social teaching in our Catholic university…. The students of SHU and the citizens of Adrian, MI deserve to be formed in authentic Catholic teaching and discipline.”
