April 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Vatican’s Congregation for Education has weighed in supporting local Catholics who believe that it is a scandal and damaging for a Catholic university to host a drag show.
The official letter stating the position, was issued by the Pontifical congregation whose jurisdiction oversees houses of formation and institutions including universities. This came as a result of two concerned San Diegans who filed petitions last year with Church authorities asking them to review the situation and, if appropriate, intervene to stop and denounce the event which has become a yearly practice at the University of San Diego since 2012.
Attorney Charles LiMandri, who founded the websitewww.AlumniforaCatholicUSD.org, collaborated with Thomas McKenna, Founder and President of Catholic Action for Faith and Family. They both filed canonical petitions in the wake of the “Drag Superstar 2” event held on the USD campus in April 2013.
