"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?

Join TFP Student Action in telling Swarthmore College that blasphemy is not -- and never will be -- a feature of true higher learning, but only a symptom of academic decay.

"Why is God and the Bible singled out for derision by a college that prides itself on so-called tolerance and inclusion?"

......because, as Romans 1 states

21] .........when they knew God, they have not GLORIFIED him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And they chan…More
"Why is God and the Bible singled out for derision by a college that prides itself on so-called tolerance and inclusion?"

......because, as Romans 1 states

21] .........when they knew God, they have not GLORIFIED him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. [24]Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. [25] WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

[26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28] And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30] Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,


[26] "God delivered them up": Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing his grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.

[31] Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. [32] Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.
