College course teaches students about ‘queering the Bible’

Swarthmore College is offering a course next year that will survey “queer and trans* readings of biblical texts” by using “queer and trans* theoretical approaches,” with faculty staying silent on the specifics of the course material.

    A college course for people that want to burn in hell. Do they actually teach anything useful at colleges these days?

    • Math or Queering the Bible.

  • Cat-astrophe

    The queering stops at the end of the new testament I would bet.
    (only as a safety precaution)

    I heard Michael Coren’s Divinities thesis is going to be about how David and Jonathan were gay lovers.

    There’s no depth too low for degenerates to stoop… 🙁

  • Hard Little Machine

    Swarthmore used to known as one of the harder ‘minor’ Ivies to stay in, as opposed to most schools that are much harder to get in than stay in. What this tells me is that the other end of that machine – where alums are inevitably awarded all the top rank accolades like MacArthur grants, Fullbright, Marshall and Rhodes scholarships are largely devolving into meaningless participation trophies. Soon they will grant degrees for simply attending TED Talks.
