The Pope & The Witch Premier is March 1 at the UofMN - Don't Go!

The American Papist has a good post with some links to others.

Father Z at W.D.T.P.R.S. also has his letter to President Bruininks of the UofMN, requesting that he report himself to the U's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action whos policies prohibit religious discrimination.

I now wonder how a land-grant institution, paid for by TAXPAYERS in Minnesota, can tolerate this choice, to so single out members of the Catholic Church for scheduled and then repeated insult and ridicule.

Taxpayers will be footing the bill for a scheduled and then repeated offense to Catholics.

You bear part of the responsibility.

Therefore, I respectfully suggest you might report yourself to your own Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. That office’s webpage (http://www.eoaffact.umn.edu/biasreporting.html) has the following:

"PLEASE LET US KNOW if you, someone you know, or a group within our university community, has experienced bias, discrimination or hostility. We are concerned about incidents based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, gender identification, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status and/or sexual orientation. The University of Minnesota is ready and willing to provide support, and address disrespectful bias and discrimination within our community. We need to know what happens and how often, so that we can respond and help those who are targeted. By reporting incidents, you become part of the solution."

Simply attaching a schedule of the Theater Department’s season will indicate the religious dimension of the violation of your University’s policies as well as the where, by whom, and how often.

Kindly take action in this matter. It would be the right thing to do and you would be "part of the solution".
