One student recently decried the fact that universities are participating in the degradation of their students with the continued focus on sex.
Now, it being reported that a church in now helping fund the sexual scholarship at one school:
The University of Tennessees controversial and explicit sex week plans were in jeopardy after campus leaders recently announced they were pulling about $11,000 in funding for the event, so a church near the campus has decided to raise money for the cause.
Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is located just down the street from UTs campus, and during their services Sunday morning, theyre trying to be the best neighbors they can be.
Theyre donating 100 percent of the money collected during the service to help fund Sex Week.
This is really a faith in action thing for us. The efforts of students at UT to offer that kind of programming is vitally important, and we see it as part of our ministry to support that, said Youth Religious Education Director Kim Mason, of TVUUC.
By the way, that vital programming includes a drag show, campus condom scavenger hunt, sexual poetry tutorial, transgender sexuality lecture, oral sex seminar, sex-themed trivia game, and a lunch hosted by Planned Parenthood called Sex Ed That Just Cant Wait.
A report in wate.com of Knoxville, Tennessee offers the opinions of some of the churchs congregation.
Church goers tell 6 News they are excited to help make Sex Week possible for UT students.
They can choose not to have access to it. They dont have to go to any of these events, but if they want this kind of information then it should be provided, said TVUUC member Lizzie Roper, a former UT student.
Member Jeffrey Kovac, who is also a UT professor and sponsor of Sex Week, says while some of the events content may be controversial, he sees it as necessary.
Its true that theres some stuff thats a bit edgy, but theres a lot of stuff like talking about your virginity, how to talk to your doctor about sex, and how to talk to your parents about sex, said Kovac.
The UUs are also in the vanguard of pushing “polyamory” as the next wave of acceptable sexual behavior.
Unitarians. Polyamory is big with the Unitarians.
Not a church!
Not a church. A fake church, with a fake congregation. I am so sick of these people masquerading as followers of Christ. YOU’RE NOT! You’re perverts, encouraging perversion, and subsidizing sin. I hope this ‘church’ is hit by an earthquake. Houses pretending to be houses of God should fall, stone by stone.
It should read: Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Social Club of Non-Believers.
As a side-note, I believe Mr. Obama's grandparents were members of the same club.
I don’t know which sect of Unitarians Obama’s grandparents belonged to, but yes, she had her funeral service at a Unitarian church in Hawaii.
I admit, I lump all Unitarians together. I don't know what is the difference between Unitarian Univeralists, and vanilla Unitarians -- but I suspect not much. They deny the Deity of Christ, the authority of God's Word ... but yet they believe there is some fuzzy, warm spirit out there and so they gather together in a social group.
It’s not a church, it’s a coven.
Sorry, that is not a church. That is an atheist mutual support group masquerading as a church. The word "church" has a meaning that has no connection to atheism and vague spiritualism.
You owe witches an apology.
“Unitarian Universalist Church”
Unitarians should rightly be called “Nothingtarians.” The accept everything, meaning they believe nothing.
This explains their stance.
The UU’s aren’t a church. They’re a social club with a churchy vibe.
This “church” is where several people were shoot a couple of years ago. Some nut didn’t like their position on gays and decided to express himself with a Shotgun.
I know someone who goes to that brand of “church” and he is a PHD and an idiot lefty.
Lot’s of innocent lives have been taken in that neighborhood. Specifically that of the unborn.
Unitarians are about as Christian as Mooslims.
“I dont know which sect of Unitarians Obamas grandparents belonged to, but yes, she had her funeral service at a Unitarian church in Hawaii.”
Yes, and that specific church is one of the churches pushing polyamory. They have their own polyamory “discussion group” that meets there:
