Funny, I though college was for education. Kind of an anti-faith where you develop the skills to create your own beliefs based on information, logic and individual thought. I know that's scary to religious folks whose beliefs don't make any damned sense, but I suppose they have to balance a desire to get credentialed for a middle-class professional life with a desire to hold the skill of irrational thought. Faith Camp in scaryland, Colorado purports to arm christian kids with some tools to fight individual thought, though you know they call out their favorite scapegoats by name:
What specifically does she think she will run into at a college like Asbury? Ms. White has heard rumors from her older brother, who also attends Asbury, of "homosexuality and other stuff that shouldn't be going on at a Christian college." She has already prayed over photographs of each of her fellow incoming freshmen. "I want to put on the full armor of God before I go into battle," she says.
ooooh, watch out little girl! The homosexual boogyman is going to get you, and um, well, insert stereotype here - will he a) help fix up her hair, b) try to steal her clothes or c) talk about boys!? What the fuck does a gay guy want with a fundy girl anyways? Why the persecution ms. moral majority? Christians are way more into persecuting the gays than the gays are into persecuting christians. In fact, aside from some pity comments, we try to stay the fuck away from you.
The workshop has only one session devoted to homosexuality, but the topic seems to come up frequently. Mr. Noebel contends that gay and lesbian organizations wield more power than any other group on college campuses. "Much of the faculty is scared to death of them," he says. "The homosexual agenda has been around for a long time, but it's now really at the top." In a book he co-wrote with Tim LaHaye, homosexuality is grouped with drug use, "kids killing kids," and abortion as "true signs of a decaying society."
If only the gays could get pregnant, then you could wrap it all up into
a homicidal gang-banging tranny getting an abortion while toking a
bong. Woo hoo!! Little ms. perfect christian Charlotte Simmons would explode, and hours
brainwashing and millions of hate-fire-fueling dollars would finally be
justified. Thanks for the link Stefan!
