Baylor University who in 2005 booted gay alumnus Tim Smith from its Advisory Board just for being gay,and has a policy that identifies “homosexual acts” as a “misuse of God’s gift” and as grounds for a students dismissal, WAS going to offer a course its Spring 2102 semester called “Homosexuality As A Gateway Drug”. That is until people found out about it and then the course name was quietly changed to “Family Studies”
Considering that the course description is sketchy, there are no textbooks or materials needed, and the Asst. Professor who is teaching the course Martha G. Sherman’s research interests include criminology, juvenile delinquency, the sociology of the family, parenting, and religion and Baylor U’s anti-gay, pro-christian fascist attitudes I wouldn’t hesitate to guess that the course is NOT a course about about how to enjoy the meatrack and High Tea Dances on Fire Island in the summertime.
But then again what do you expect from a Baptist College in Waco, Texas except rampant homophobia, some good ol’e fashioned bible thumpping and possibly a stockpile of weapons.
