The American TFP’s America Needs Fatima campaign has announced that it will be demonstrating at Cincinnati’s Know Theater on June 14 as part of its nationwide protest against the play Corpus Christi, which portrays Our Lord Jesus Christ and the apostles as homosexuals. TFP website users may also register their protests now.
“Our supporters in the area are gearing up for a huge peacefully rally of reparation,” claims America Needs Fatima director Robert Ritchie. “June is the month of the Sacred Heart and we will take this in special consideration.”
The protest will take place on Saturday from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Know Theater while Corpus Christi is showing. The program calls for speeches, rosaries, and hymns in the protest in front of the Know Theater. ANF supporters from several states are expected to attend the rally of reparation.
The first stage of this peaceful and legal protest consisted in sending post cards to the Know Theater, expressing deep rejection for the play. Similar card were sent to The Cincinnati Enquirer asking that their coverage of the play fairly represent Catholic indignation toward Corpus Christi. Tens of thousands of members are already participating in the first step.
The second stage includes writing to the Mayor of Cincinnati asking him to join the protest and consider how this play can only lower the city’s reputation.
Now TFP website readers can send their own protests to the Know Theater and the mayor.
Since June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and Corpus Christi is an attack on Our Lord Jesus Christ, the efforts and trials of this campaign will be offered in special reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
“By asking civic leaders to become involved,” Mr. Ritchie stressed, “we are sending the message Corpus Christi is no good for morals. It’s no good for business. It’s no good for the reputation of Cincinnati.”
