When searching for a blog topic, it’s always fruitful to drop in on a known b*g*t. I have no plans to comment there since the b*g*t merely entrenches, yet I did find some fodder. I had hoped that fundamentalist bigotry was confined to the US Bible Belt, that notorious haven for the hatefully ignorant control-freaks of North America.
It appears that Oxford University is not immune to ignorant attitudes.
Do not despair! The University is reported to have noticed the problem:
“The teaching of theology at the University of Oxford has suffered a serious blow with a damning report that recommends ending the admission of school-leavers to some of its colleges.”
and . . .
“The review, conducted by a university panel headed by Sir Colin Lucas, a former vice-chancellor, concludes that Oxford’s seven Christian private halls risk failing to provide a rounded learning experience in keeping with Oxford’s liberal ethos.”
and . . .
“Halls could risk losing their Oxford University licences altogether if they teach a fundamentalist Biblical doctrine on sexual ethics and in other areas of theology.”
In the words of the known b*g*t, “The fundamentalist doctrine is that any sex acts outside of marriage between a man and a woman are wrong. Period. Full stop.”
I guess that this means that homosexual acts are fine. It certainly indicates that marriage is merely church-sanctioned fornication. The b*g*t protested that Oxford Universities insistence that narrow moralistic preachings are not acceptable in a place of higher learning are tantamount to declaring, “Immorality Essential at Oxford”. How histrionic!
