Update: Young Catholics staged at protest at the gates of Swarthmore College.
"Queering the Bible" is a new course offered at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania for the fall semester.
This is how the college advertises the course: "By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans* theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the bible--and religion--says about gender and sexuality."
Another blasphemous course is titled "Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology." The college web site describes it as an attempt to "stretch the limits of gendering-and sexing-the divine."
Why is God and the Bible singled out for derision by a college that prides itself on so-called tolerance and inclusion?
Tell Swarthmore College that blasphemy is not -- and never will be -- a feature of true higher learning, but only a symptom of academic decay.
Defend the honor of Our Lord Jesus Christ today. Share this petition.
