From today's SF Chronicle:
"Church chat: San Francisco Roman Catholic Archbishop George Niederauer has stepped into another gay controversy - this time, blocking students from Sacred Heart Preparatory School in Atherton from putting on a 'gay-friendly' play at a church in the Castro.
The Atherton actors had been invited to Most Holy Redeemer Church this past Sunday to perform "Be Still and Know," which, according to the parish bulletin, 'explores the subject of homosexuality within a Christian adolescent context.'
The play had been adapted by Sacred Heart drama director John Loschmann from the novel 'The God Box' by Alex Sanchez.
Most Holy Redeemer, however, canceled the performance on orders from on high, according to Sacred Heart spokeswoman Dawna Houston. No reason was given.
Apparently unbeknownst to the archbishop, however, Sacred Heart went ahead with the play anyway, at the Jesuit-run University of San Francisco's Presentation Theater.
The archdiocese did not return our call Tuesday seeking comment."
It's was quite a week's work for the responsible faculty down at Sacred Heart of Atherton.
In about 7 days they have managed to:
• associate their school with probably the most notorious homosexual activist parish in the United States;
• provoke their Archbishop into cancelling a performance of their play at that same parish;
• and, if the Chronicle is correct, follow that by publicly defying and circumventing their Archbishop through having the play performed at the (Jesuit) University of San Francisco. In the subculture of homosexual activism within the Archdiocese of San Francisco, USF serves as the movement's theological and intellectual front, just as Most Holy Redeemer is its spiritual front.
As I said in my last post on this subject, if I were a parent at Sacred Heart of Atherton, I'd be asking some questions about who they are getting hooked up with, and why.
