We note that within the past 24 hours the listing of the play "Be Still and Know," scheduled to be performed by students from Sacred Heart High School of Atherton this Sunday at Most Holy Redeemer Parish, has been pulled from the "Events" page of the MHR website. We hope this means that our Archdiocese has caused the production to be cancelled, but we await confirmation.
For our previous detailed post on this subject, go here.
Meanwhile, here is a very clear excerpt from a statement by Bishop Joseph Martino of Scranton, PA, who has recently been faced with a similar situation:
"As the Bishop, it is not only my right, but my obligation to ensure that authentic Catholic teaching is being provided in all Catholic institutions in this Diocese, and that viewpoints in opposition to this teaching are not being presented as acceptable alternatives."
It really is that simple.
