In response to ‘Rebel Priest’ Rev Jules Gomes: Snowflakes be warned – the Bible is X-rated, Vox Populi wrote:
Absolutely, spot on! Theology was once the queen of the sciences. The great universities of the West were founded to teach theology. Theology was then dismissed as ‘junk science’ even though a serious student of theology and the Bible knows that it is one of the most rigorous disciplines and calls for knowledge of linguistics, philosophy, politics, sociology, literature, economics and other ancillary disciplines.
[By the way, you don’t need to believe in God to study theology or the Bible as an academic discipline.] But now we have a whole palette of junk disciplines that snowflakes are lapping up… David Beckham studies… what next? An MA in Bob Geldof Studies? A PhD in Corbynism?
