There have been quite a few comments to the post of March 2 "Play for Teens Performed at Most Holy Redeemer." Lots of comments, but no answers to the questions I asked. So I'll ask the questions again, with one addition:
• Is the content of the play in agreement with Church teaching on homosexuality?
• Who decided on having this play produced at Sacred Heart of Atherton?
• Has the production of this play at Sacred Heart of Atherton been approved by the Archdiocese?
• Has the production of this play at Most Holy Redeemer been approved by the Archdiocese?
• Why is this play being performed at Most Holy Redeemer at all? The novel “The God Box” from which the play is adapted, is targeted at an adolescent audience. For obvious reasons, there are virtually no children at MHR. Why is a play targeted at children being performed at a parish where there are no children?
• I'll now add this to the preceding question: Why are high school students being allowed to perform a play at the only church in the history of Christendom that has photographs of parish hall events posted on a website that requires an obscenity disclaimer?
• Finally, has anyone at the Archdiocese read “The God Box?” Or even visited the website of Alex Sanchez, the book’s author?
I look forward to answers.
