Chapter protests high school presentation on ‘date rape’

The Catholic League’s Massachusetts Chapter has vehemently protested a presentation on “date rape” at Newton North High School which included a series of graphic rape jokes intended to “loosen up the audience.” One joke reportedly involved a nun being raped repeatedly on a subway train and begging for more.

The program, “Calling It Rape,” was performed by the Harvard/Radcliffe Drama Group at the invitation of a member of the Newton Sex Education Task Force.

Chapter Executive Director C. Joseph Doyle blasted the program for its “callous contempt for the religious sensibilities of Catholics.”

The play, which made liberal use of four-letter words and profanity, was one more in a continuing series of outrageous speakers and presentations brought to the community by members of the Sex Education Task Force. A citizens group, Newton Citizens for Public Education, has been organized and has asked for the resignations of all task force members.
