On a Saturday afternoon, Campus Reform reports, Yale hosted a “sensitivity training” event “where students were asked to consider topics such as bestiality, incest, and accepting money for sex. . . . The session was hosted by ‘sexologist’ Dr. Jill McDevitt, who owns a sex store called Feminique in West Chester, Pa.”
For information purposes, Yale’s original motto, written in Hebrew (אורים ותמים) and Latin (Lex et Veritas) is “Light and Truth” from God’s Word, the Bible.
Bestiality and incest are sexual practices on a sexual diversity scale where moral judgment is not permitted. “It’s sensitivity training,” McDevitt told Campus Reform. “Don’t judge other people, because we all have something we are embarrassed about.”
For years opponents of homosexual rights have argued that a sexual slippery slope was being built that included sex with animals. We were told, “That will never happen. How can you make such a comparison? Homosexual love does not include sex with animals. You’re all just a bunch of bigoted homophobes.”
Actually, we know how moral degeneracy works. Once you start down the slope, there is nothing along the way that indicates a moral stopping point. Morality is no longer an issue in the debate over consensual sexuality. It’s all about personal choice and, as the Cole Porter song says, “Anything Goes”:
“Part of the problem, says David Popenoe, founder and co-director of the National Marriage Project at Rutgers University, is that we’ve become an ‘anything-goes’ society, in which the indiscretions of politicians, sports figures, and pop celebrities are practically daily news.”
Desensitizing people about sexual practices has been an ongoing tactic that goes back decades in the United States.
Consider the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay who received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923. She was a sexual iconoclast that set in motion what we see today coming out of the cesspool or moral depravity. Her works are a mainstay in college literature classes.
She used her notoriety to break down cultural mores related to sex and sexuality that have made their way into the American psyche:
“Millay moved to Greenwich Village, a community of free spirits — women and men such as John Reed, who boasted: ‘We are free who live in Washington Square. We dare to think as Uptown wouldn’t dare.’ Much of that idea of living free was about sexual liberation. Millay cultivated freedom of speech in a way that Madison and Jefferson could never have imagined. When her sister came to stay, Edna made her practice speaking obscenities while they sat darning stockings together, chanting softly, ‘Needle in, S**t. Needle out, P*ss. Needle in, F**k. Needle out, c**t. Until we were easy with the words.’
“She had as series of love affairs with women and men and plunged headlong into what she called the ‘whirlpool of eros.’ The first affair appears to have been in 1912, with a woman in Maine. In ten years, there would be more than one hundred affairs, sometimes five or six at once.” ((David Hackett Fischer, Liberty and Freedom: A Visual History of America’s Founding Ideas (Mew York: Oxford University Press, 2005), 472-473.

As a reference point, to show you how far Yale has fallen from its original founding principles, I’ve included this brief history of Yale.
“Yale’s roots can be traced back to the 1640s, when colonial clergymen led an effort to establish a college in New Haven to preserve the tradition of European liberal education in the New World. This vision was fulfilled in 1701, when the charter was granted for a school ‘wherein Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences [and] through the blessing of Almighty God may be fitted for Publick employment both in Church and Civil State.’ In 1718 the school was renamed “Yale College” in gratitude to the Welsh merchant Elihu Yale, who had donated the proceeds from the sale of nine bales of goods together with 417 books and a portrait of King George I.”
How the mighty have fallen and for only $58,600 per year for tuition and room and board.
