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 Tennessee’s 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.

WATE reports:

Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is located just down the street from UT’s campus, and during their services Sunday morning, they’re trying to be the best neighbors they can be.

They’re 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 Can’t Wait.”

A report in of Knoxville, Tennessee offers the opinions of some of the church’s 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 don’t 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 event’s content may be controversial, he sees it as necessary.

“It’s true that there’s some stuff that’s a bit edgy, but there’s 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.
