The course, which will launch in the fall of 2018 through Swarthmores religion department, will examine the Bible through a queer lens. It will examine issues of sex, gender, and identity as they present themselves in one of human historys most influential texts.
This course surveys queer and trans* readings of biblical texts. It introduces students to the complexity of constructions of sex, gender, and identity in one of the most influential literary works produced in ancient times, the course description reads. By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans* theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the bible and religion says about gender and sexuality.
In another course offered in the department called Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology the attempt is made to argue that God is a female...

I recommend they start with Genesis 19 and Romans 1. And pretty much stop there.
2 Timothy 4:3 King James Version
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
What kind of stupid nonsense is this?
Hey - lets revisit Mesopotamian civilization through the eyes of transgendered men whove reverted.
Why sort of things can we learn about how their civilization would impact our philosophy.
Or wait - lets look at the womens suffrage movement and examine if transgendered women have the same issues.
It would appear that this course is designed to twist and justify Scripture to say that male and female really don’t mean what they mean. Next they will distort the Bible by saying that it doesn’t speak against the practice of homosexuality, and that basically you can do whatever you want.
May the full wrath of the holy God be upon them if in fact they follow this path. They will lead many right into the fires of Hell.
Whatever happened to courses in Logic, Ethics, Rhetoric, Literature, History?
I want to see them introduce a “Queering the Koran” course.
Are we still vilified if we refer to them as “Queers”? I can’t keep it all straight (no pun intended)
According to a report from The College Fix, Queering the Bible is the only religious course at Swarthmore that centers on the Bible.
Coming soon: "Queering The Koran". Right.
Well, they could more legitimately study Eunuchs of Imperial China
Yet another demonstration of the value of higher education.
I'd love to see them do that too. I think they have just enough sense to realize they would not live that long...
Thats offensive and not who real transgenders are! :)
We need to introduce a new course called "Beating the F*** out of obnoxious @$$holes who want to mock our religion."
Why college degrees have become a joke.
Mess with the words of the Almighty and suffer the consequences.
2. Coat of Many Colors? You guessed it, Joseph was a cross-dresser.
3. Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego? Yep, they were flamers.
4. Jesus's words to Mary Magdalene to "go and sin no more", really just meant don't overcharge your customers.
5. Paul? Really, do we need to say that he was so totally in denial.
When will prestigious Swarthmore College introduce a course called Queering the koran?
It’s like the use of the n-word.
Depends on who is using it, apparently.
