France's Liberal Bishops Defend Play While SSPX Atones

Edit: if you favor various forms of modern art like abstract expressionism, you are certainly disordered and perverse. Those who favor such forms of art prefer the esteem of the world to objectivity, and those who are relativists in aesthetics will be relativists in ethics as well.

Is it any wonder that the Church in the world is in so much trouble with such Shepherds as the Archbishop of Paris?

About 1,000 Catholics participated in a demonstration in Rennes against one of them criticized as blasphemous play.

Rennes ( / CBA) Large parts of the city of Rennes in Brittany have been cordoned off by the police on Thursday evening for fear of riots. Like French media reports on Friday, nearly 1,000, mostly traditionalist Catholics, were participating in a demonstration against what is for them a blasphemous play at the National Theatre of the western French city. A counter-demonstration of 200 participants had also arrived. According to media reports, it remained peaceful throughout the evening, the play was half an hour late, but had been listed with no interference.

At the rally against the play "On the concept of the face of the Son of God" by the Italian Romeo Castellucci, the traditionalists are largely related to an organization called "Civitas". The Archbishop of Rennes, Pierre d'Ornellas, had recently defended the work [Incredibly]. There was no hostility toward Christians in the play, however, but it is meant to provoke, he declared earlier this month. Those who protest against it are mistaken, in his perspective. D'Ornellas was represented, according to media reports on the performance, by a priest of his diocese. Bishop Raymond of the Breton diocese of Vannes has supported the protest against the play, on the other hand.

Castellucci's play depicts Jesus as the backdrop in an oversized port of the scene of a son caring for his demented and incontinent by his father. Even in Paris there are rallies and vigils against the play. The traditionalist SSPX has also announced that it is having Masses said in reparation for these performances. One of the performances in Paris was interrupted by conservative Catholics. The French bishops' conference chairman, Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois said on Wednesday that the bishops were in agreement that "verbal or physical violence certainly" should be rejected against anti-clerical works of art.
