USC-Upstate Boycott: It’s Working

RELIGIOUS RIGHT DRAWS BLOOD WITH BOYCOTT OF SCHOOL … 

Sources at the University of South Carolina-Upstate tell FITS the school is struggling in response to a boycott from Christian congregations upset with the school’s advancement of pro-homosexual propaganda.

FITS first reported on the religious right’s revulsion in this post … but it now appears as though the angry social conservatives are making real headway.

“(Upstate) churches are telling kids to go elsewhere,” one source familiar with the situation tells FITS.

Is this boycott having an effect on enrollment?

Apparently so …

Additionally, the school is reportedly facing “huge budget issues” as a result of the boycott.

“Layoffs being today,” our source added. “Academic programs being eliminated.”

So … is any of this causing school officials to rethink their controversial offerings? No … in fact next month the school is staging a production of Duncan Sheik’s Spring Awakening, a rock musical that tells the “story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality.”

The musical includes several homosexual scenes – which is fine with us (so long as we’re not subsidizing it).

Which brings us to the rub … (no double entendre intended).

This website has consistently argued that forcing taxpayers to pay for pro-gay propaganda – or pro-Christian propaganda – is wrong.  In fact we have repeatedly argued government ought to get out of the higher education business altogether – a market politicians never should have entered in the first place.

Ah, Bob Jones, where they tell sexual assault/rape victims not to report their attackers because it would “hurt the church.”

“Nearly everyone at Bob Jones grew up in a fundamentalist environment,
so if you were abused, your abuser probably came from inside that
bubble, too, which is what happened to me,” she said. “The person who
supposedly counseled me told me if I reported a person like that to the
police, I was damaging the cause of Christ, and I would be responsible
for the abuser going to hell. He said all of my problems were as a
result of my actions in the abuse, which mostly took place before I was
12, and I should just forgive the abuser.”

But at least they aren’t gay, amirite?

Got to love how sexually assaulting someone doesn’t send you to hell, them reporting your assault does, thusly making their actions to blame, not yours.

The fact is, it is the same in the minds of some Christians. You have your own standards of right or wrong and so do they. Merely having a play about pedophilia is pro-pedophilia in your mind in the same way have a play about homosexuality is the pro-homosexual in their minds.

I don’t care one way or another. The point is, what is a taboo for you- pedophilia- is not a taboo for many cultures across the world. Same goes for homosexual behavior. It is taboo for some people while for others it is not. You’re sitting on your high horse pretending to be Mr. Tolerant while simultaneously discounting something literally hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people have no problem with.

Literally half the books I read for English class in high school were squicky enough to give me nightmares. For instance, one of the books, “Until they Bring the Streetcars Back” involved a man who had incest with his high-school aged daughter, which resulted in a pregnancy, which was brought to full term. The protagonist later finds the corpse of the baby in a freezer.

If you are worried about inappropriate themes in the media used by schools, I suggest looking into the required reading list for public high schools first.

You seem really off your mark today. Is a play about war, pro-war? Is a play about killing a king pro-regicide? Is “The Book of Mormon” pro-Mormon? Is a play about the life of drug addicts pro-addiction? Surly you would not support suppressing controversial art or art which tackles a complicated subject.
I am sure there are plays about pedophilia and incest, and you don’t have to attend them, but do you really want the state suppressing access to such plays by adults, or the performance of such plays by adults.
This article is really dumb, and lowers my opinion of Will Folks intelligence.

Jan March 25, 2014 at 1:11 pm

I guess I don’t understand what your point is at all. You seem to be implying that USC Upstate should not have allowed the Theater Department to stage this play because of its sexual content. This play was written in 1891. It was controversial then and was censored by many governments, but it has been performed all over the world and is recognized as an important play. The play covers a lot topics other than homosexuality. It was written as a criticism of repressive Victorian culture.

I guess in South Carelina we just don’t cotton to air “kids” bein exposed to that thar kinda stuff. Why can’t we have a play about Adam and Eve, or Noah, and leave out the incest part. Or about the Exodus and leave out the part about slaughtering women and children, or about godly King David,and leave out that part where he has the guy killed so he could screw his wife.

Jackie Chiles March 25, 2014 at 2:24 pm

Or why can’t we have a play celebrating the guys that killed Matthew Sheppard to challenge the status quo?

Ralph Waldo March 26, 2014 at 6:41 am

Why not a play about chipmunks? Or love? Or a murder mystery on a train? Why not expose students to all lifestyles and beliefs? The problem is not exposing students to LGBTQ lifestyles and issues; the problem is USC Upstate does not expose the alternatives. It is common knowledge that this play was specifically picked to “show them”.

Jan March 26, 2014 at 10:35 am

As I said, you want the State to set up a committee or agency of of some type to review and approve what plays (and I presume books and films), professors are allowed to show to students in public universities and colleges?

That is the only solution other than leaving it up to the professors and students as to which plays they want to perform. Most plays are picked to “show them”. Shakespeare did that all the time. Performance art is frequently about making a point. This play was about making a point in 1891 when it was written. You don’t have to agree with the point, and since I would guess you have not seen the play you have no idea what the point is.

The committee idea is the only way to assure the schools perform only plays that offend no one.

I must say this it typical teapublican crap. Why don’t we burn a few books while we are at it.

Ralph Waldo March 28, 2014 at 3:06 am

Your comment “you want” indicates your ignorance and arrogance in your belief that you understand and must dictate what others need. I made no mention of a state committee or any censorship. My comment was plainly that the university has focused on one issue and your attitude confirms this refusal to offer varied and alternative views. I am glad I never had to suffer through your arrogant and narrow minded classroom Jan.

The Colonists never, ever faced the fearsome British army of the late empire. For the most part, the field armies tasked with suppressing the rebellion were softened units that hadn’t seen combat in a decade. As for asking for backup, no matter how belated: There was none to send. In 1776, the total manpower of British military might reached 96,000. That was their entire worldwide strength. With these men, the British were fighting the Patriots, while holding Caribbean possessions, while manning their stations at Gibraltar and Minorca, and Ireland, and Gold Coast territories … and defending England itself.

But fell free to believe otherwise and romance the patriotism…

Whats not understood here is the understanding. Understanding the issues is not being understood by those in administration that dont understand. Those that really understand arent in the position to affect real change anymore. Things arnt good because of the bad. When those that were good had control good things and decions were made that were good.

It’s all Charley’s fault. That excuse has worn thin. Too many fish in the tank. Too much fat at the top. Time to trim the fat. If the Prince remains the King will fall.

USC-Upstate operates better than any school that the state. It is number one for best student costs, number one low cost for administering each student, which beats SCState, the Citadel, C of C, and all the rest that the legislature gives all the money to. It has the top rated nursing program in the state also.
