Higher-Ed-Bubble Update: Pansexuality Edition

Over at the Alliance Defense Fund’s Academic Freedom File, Jordan Lorence links to a video you have to see. Featuring an absolute avalanche of politically correct nonsense, the video shows what is allegedly a freshman orientation program at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota. I’d be tempted to fully describe the video, which — among other things — has actors portraying gay, lesbian, bicurious, bisexual, transgendered, transexual, and pansexual students and then features a student discussing how he became an atheist at a Christian college, but then you might not actually watch.

In his post, Jordan goes on to describe the history of Gustavus Adolphus and decry the sad spectacle of a Christian university so decisively turning its back on its heritage. Read the whole thing.

Oh, and how is this relevant to the higher-ed bubble? The silliness you see is available for the low, low price of $42,258 per year!
