Today's Tribune had a front-page article about an anti-war protest during Cardinal George's Easter Mass, which was being held in the parish auditorium, due to ceiling damage in the Cathedral. A small group of "Catholic Schoolgirls Against the War" (all adults and not all "girls") spurted fake blood on parishioners, shouting their opposition to the Iraq war. (Do they even realize that the Catholic hierarchy, all the way to the Pope, have been outspoken in its opposition to the same war?) It seems the group was peeved at Cardinal George for meeting with Mayor Daley and President Bush.
This has become the feature du jour for online comments at the Tribune.
Personally, I think their intervention in the name of peace was an act of social violence, and directed to the wrong audience. (Clearly, they were using the setting and the audience for publicity purposes, not because their message was addressed to this particular audience.) What is your reaction?
