Lefty Lunacy: Crucifixion deemed too gruesome for theology students

Theology students at the University of Glasgow are receiving warnings about how Bible study may include tackling the ‘potentially distressing’ nature of crucifixion.

The latest trigger warnings descending upon students from PC authorities give the students a chance to leave the room if they find the image of Jesus on the Cross a bit too much.

Students on a plethora of courses receive similar warnings – of which another amusing example is forensic science students receiving a “verbal warning… at the beginning of some lectures where sensitive images, involving blood patterns, crime scenes and bodies are in the presentation”.

The only degree these students are heading for is a first class honours in snowflake studies.

    Good grief. Seventy years ago the University age group stormed the beaches on D-Day. Utterly ridiculous.

    Talk about a snowflake generation.

  • WFC

    of which another amusing example is forensic science students receiving a “verbal warning… at the beginning of some lectures where sensitive images, involving blood patterns, crime scenes and bodies are in the presentation”.

    Whist agreeing with the thrust of the article, I did a forensic science course many years ago, and the presentations were prefaced by a similar warning.

    Scheduling them immediately after the lunch break didn’t help.

  • Perhaps we need a warning on all church doors just in case there is a Crucifix inside. Or perhaps on the Lych gate warning that dead bodies are buried in the ground.

    British universities have become politicized and are in the grip of fear and moral frenzy – they see themselves as besieged islands of liberal/left sanity in a sea of aggressive right-wing bigotry where fascism lurks around every corner particularly among the ignorant uneducated lower classes – the result of all this indoctrination is the snowflake generation – ready melt at the slightest provocation.

      I don’t doubt what you say, but most of them are in for a sharp, nasty shock when they reconnect with reality in the outside world.

    Back in the day, when I was a fresh faced WPC, I did my Scenes of Crime training and opted to become a SOC Officer or SOCO. It was interesting and mostly routine (fingerprints etc) but you do need a strong stomach for it. I’ve seen. photographed and examined some horrific sights in my time but there were no trigger warnings, no expectation that you would sue for suffering from PTSD. It was a job and you were expected to get on with it no matter how harrowing. Which I did.

    How the times have changed. :0/

      I got PTSD after shopping at Tescos in the summer. Like you, I saw some horrific sights

        Likewise. An entire family, dad, mum and two young kids, doing evening TESCO shopping in their jim-jams had me wondering if I was actually awake at the time. I’d heard about the phenomenon but thought it an urban legend until I saw it for myself. I kept thinking, I hope they are wearing undies.

          TRIGGER WARNING, TRIGGER WARNING!

          What’s TESCO shopping?

          • weirdvisions

            Same as Morrison’s and Asda shopping only you go to Tesco.

            ;0)

    Don’t expect to see such provision for lectures about the Russian Revolution. That kind of torture and killing is fine!

  • alecto

    I don’t think I can take any more insane lefty stupidity.

    – And ye the media, which the young lap up the products of (films, TV, games) are increasingly more violent … and that doesn’t seem to upset them at all …
