Reason #1,987,856,872 Why College Campuses Are Mission Territory

WARNING - This article contains quite graphic language about sexuality. I only post it because if it is happening on other college campuses, it might be coming to one near you soon.

A live sex demonstration took place in front of a classroom full of students at Northwestern and the University defends it!
A snip:
The woman said she showed up at the Feb. 21 lecture in the Ryan Family Auditorium in Evanston expecting just to answer questions, but was game to demonstrate. The course’s professor on Wednesday acknowledged some initial hesitation, but said student feedback was “uniformly positive.”

And Northwestern defended the class and its professor.

“Northwestern University faculty members engage in teaching and research on a wide variety of topics, some of them controversial and at the leading edge of their respective disciplines,” said Alan K. Cubbage, vice president for University Relations. “The University supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge.”

The optional, non-credit demo followed psychology Prof. John Michael Bailey’s sexuality class.
Here is the quote of the day:
“Do I have any regrets?” he wrote on Wednesday. “It is mostly too early to say. I certainly have no regrets concerning Northwestern students, who have demonstrated that they are open-minded grown ups rather than fragile children.”
I love how being open-minded means we have to accept whatever immoral act is done. GK Chesterton said it best:
Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.

Horrible- yes, but surprising- Unfortunatly not.

Back when I was in college, I took a human sexuality course to fulfill one of my credit requirements. (Needless to say this was before I'd returned to the Church.) And one of the ways to get extra credit was to go to a s*x club in San Francisco and write about it. Even back then (when I was a bit of an idiot) I thought it was shocking, but a married couple in the class did this.

How this is masked as educational, I cannot say.

Good Chesterton quote! More eloquent than what I always say- "If your mind is too open, your brain is likely to plop out."

Ah yes, my esteemed alma mater...not exactly proud of that degree right now.
