Fanatics Clamor for More Kowtowing from UT Over Sex Week

  • UT students return to campus from spring break.
As predicted, conservative Christians in the legislature aren't finished browbeating the University of Tennessee over Sex Week. UT already has pulled tax money from the event. Now the religious fanatics want officials to yank student fees as well, and they hope to drag the university president back to the Senate Education Committee for a little more public humiliation.

Sen. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxville, says he wants officials to "explain the academic merits of a seminar on oral sex."

Rep. Bill Dunn, R-Knoxville, says Sex Week promotes "a hook-up culture," and it's "treating sex as something frivolous" when everyone knows sex will lead to the destruction of America.

"They're going to have to decide what they want on campus," he said. "When you have an anything-goes attitude with sex, which Sex Week seems to be promoting, it's not a big jump from anything goes... to crossing the line to criminality."

We agree with Dunn that university officials have a choice to make. Either they stand up to these lawmakers, or they lose all self-respect and dignity.
