Villanova University President Rev. Peter M. Donohue this week said he canceled a series of workshops by performance artist Tim Miller because of the subject matter, not Miller's orientation. Donohue said, "As an artist and a priest, I find the choices that Mr. Miller makes to be disturbing. While some may disagree, as president of Villanova University I can assure you it is the explicit, graphic, and sexual content of his performances that led to this decision."
