An ELCA College, Gustavus Aldolphus College in St. Peter Minnesota, offers special instruction to freshmen for having sex of all kinds and etiquette when having sex in the dorm--put hat on door!

Congregations looking for another reason to get out of the ELCA need to read this article and listen to the videos. This is how your benevolence dollars are being used.

Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn., proclaims on its website that it is "a church-related, residential liberal arts college firmly rooted in its Swedish and Lutheran heritage" and its core values are excellence, community, justice, service and faith.

But one senior is wondering just where in those values he can fit a presentation to incoming freshmen that introduces them to the etiquette of having sex in dorm rooms without being interrupted by roommates and a "lesbian" who proclaims, "I like sex. No, I love sex" and tells students, "I am normal."

The issue has been raised by student Phil Cleary on his website, where he has posted several videos captured at the 2010 orientation for freshman in the class of 2014.

  1. reading about this enough to make me sick no need to watch the videos. as a friend said where was the administration when this was going on apparently MIA. sounds just like the elca leadership we are not going to encourage a reversion of the rules to allow the ordinations of homosexuals but we will not do anything to oppose it either.
