Bad: An art student at Western Kentucky University got credit in her art class for putting condoms on 400 crosses.
I do have one big takeaway from this, but I’m gonna make you wait for that one.
Slight back-story: The pro-life students sought and received permission from the administration of WKU to place the display on school grounds. They even had set up amongst themselves a schedule of 24-hour surveillance lest some not-pro-life students sought to vandalize the display.
Enter “art.” A student was caught by the sentinels placing condoms on all of the crosses. When approached she claimed that she got permission from her art professor to do this. Not the administration, her *art* professor.
The campus police refused to intervene, claiming that putting a condom on a cross isn’t vandalism, and the art student was protected by the First Amendment. Right.
Anyhow, since the absurdity and offensiveness of this episode is self-evident to anyone with sense I’ll dispense with explaining that part.
But the big takeaway: this is either a very wealthy and opportunistic college student who is able to acquire 400 condoms, or it was merely a Fluke that she could get them at the drop of a hat.
(For the record, the University is investigating the actions of the campus police. Hopefully justice is served and all offending and offensive parties are properly reprimanded. Except, of course, the “art” professor, who likely has tenure, which means death itself has to ask permission to remove such a one from his/her position.)
