San Diego Students Try to Pray a Drag Show Away: VIDEO


Last night, the student run PRIDE group at University of San Diego held an apparently very threatening drag show called 'Supreme Drag Superstar' on campus for the second year in a row.

Catholic students at the school tried to pray it away:

Speaking on the group's behalf, sophomore Ailsa Tirado points out how the drag show advances an ideology that is opposed to natural law, and serves to perpetuate moral confusion rather than provide true spiritual healing.

"The University of San Diego is unquestionably being deceitful by identifying itself as a Catholic University, while permitting the acceptance and promotion of an ideology that is in direct contradiction to the Catholic moral teaching and social tradition," the open letter states.

  1. Uh, religion itself is opposed to natural law.

  3. Odd. Back in the UK is seen as a fun thing. Monty python anyone? Or how about the fact that the Commonwealth's most famous Queen is a character performed by a heterosexual man?

    Those praying kids need a queens presence. Y'all have the zip and charisma of a mayo sandwich.

  4. Ps. Sermon on the Mount. Those kids are disobeying Christs commander to keep their prayers PRIVATE.

  5. And how many vigils have they held to "pray away" child sexual abuse by priests?

  6. I'm guessing these praying students have pretty unhappy, unhealthy home lives. Too bad they have to spread their messed up psyches.

  7. It's a lot like same sex marriage. You don't want to marry someone of the same sex? Well, then, don't do it.

    You don't want to see a drag show? Then stay home or go out and have a nice bite to eat someplace.

  8. All they had to do was ask. 3am at any circuit party, thousands of us have tried to pray away the drag show. It NEVER works...

  10. These Catholics suck. Their attempt to hijack the Catholic faith on their narrow views is against natural law and goes against Christ himself.

  12. Perhaps, if they prayed for abundance at every level, for all beings, their time would be put to better use.

  13. How's that working for you, RC bigots?

  14. Douchenozzles.

    Or, as the chiron for the screencapture should read:

    "Prayer meeting for UCSD Last Unloved and Unf#ckable Virgins on Campus held outside of popular drag show"

  15. Yet, they allow themselves to be spiritually governed and indoctrinated by a bunch of guys in long skirts and kaftans?? With fabulous gold applique and fierce fuchsia capes!

  18. I saw the show. It was positive and really educational. Really surprised at how it turned out, really well done. Full house in the theatre. Not sure why there were protests. Glad the university gave permissions for the students to do this and Manila was amazing

  19. Even if there were one.

  20. Drag queen shows are not an ideology, but an entertaining show made to have fun.

    But probably they are too brainwashed to realize it

  21. None of those protesters had their prayerful hands properly folded. Where's Sister Mary Martinetta to give their knuckles a sharp rap with her wooden ruler?

    What makes them think they can make up their own way of praying?

    An embarrassing failure of Catholic education. A public scandal.

  22. Those drag shows are not so harmless. when transgender women are on the streets and those that attend drag shows think that it is perfectly ok to point and laugh and out them putting them in danger. when they are conflated with the transgender community which then makes them "entertainment"

  23. Nothing fails like prayer.
