TMLC’s West Coast Regional Director Mobilizes Protest of “Drag Show” Scheduled Tomorrow at His Catholic Alma Mater

Urges University of San Diego Alumni to Voice their Objections to Mary Lyons, University President

Charles LiMandri, the Thomas More Law Center's West Coast Regional Director and prominent San Diego attorney, has launched an emergency campaign to stop the drag show scheduled for tomorrow, April 11th, at the University of San Diego’s (USD) University Center. 

Please take action now to help him. Tomorrow is too late!

Calling the planned event “depraved”,  LiMandri urged USD alums to immediately voice their strong objections to University President Mary Lyons and Director of the USD Alumni Association Charles Bass. [click here for letter]
 
LiMandri established a website, Alumni for a Catholic USD to organize support in opposition to the Wednesday event.  His website also gives a video analysis (caution, graphic) of the vulgar activities USD is promoting for its Catholic students.

Unbelievably, in a recent California Catholic Daily article, President Mary Lyon's told trustees that the planned drag show

"is not inconsistent with the university's Catholic identity."

Lyon's defended the drag show on campus, citing other Catholic schools that held similar events, noting that...

"the Associated Students and the Pride student organization planned events that have been quite common at other Catholic universities including Santa Clara, DePaul, the University of Seattle and others."

Richard Thompson, TMLC’s President and Chief Counsel urged Catholics concerned about a USD’s violation of Church teachings and Biblical admonitions to assist Chuck LiMandri.  

Contact USD’s president, Mary Lyons, and let her know of your objections.  Send a copy of your communication to Charles Bass, the Director of USD Alumni Association.
