Todd Starnes seems to bear a striking resemblance to the Church Lady from Saturday Night Live, as he is perpetually clutching his pearls in response to some outrage. The latest freakout is over an event at the University of Tennessee that will feature a lesbian bondage expert and a week of talk about sex.
A lesbian bondage expert and a campus-wide condom scavenger hunt are among the activities planned for The University of Tennessee’s first-ever “Sex Week” – an event paid for by university money and student fees.
Sex Week is sponsored by the university’s Sexual Empowerment and Awareness at Tennessee club. The six-day event is expected to cost nearly $20,000 – covered in part by university grants, student fees and contributions from academic departments.
University of Tennessee spokeswoman Karen Simpson confirmed to Fox News that the conference is being funded by student fees and university money.
*yawn* And? Universities offer funding to every type of student club to bring in speakers and host events. In a few weeks I’ll be speaking at a secularism event at Louisiana State University, partially funded by the university. Christian clubs host similar events all the time, also partially funded by student activity fees. But ZOMG, sex and lesbians and bondage — the perfect recipe to give Todd Starnes a case of the vapors.
