I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

WELS - Martin Luther College - "But far too much drinking among far too many students went on far too many times."

Dean Wormer, it is a great way to get a call
and Church and Change grants.

And these are just the incidents on campus where people were caught.  And these are just the instances on campus for that matter.  When I attended MLC, COS and the like advertised the drunkfests right in the dorms.  "Get a cute copyright infringing t-shirt and help us fund this booze filled nonsense!"  There were local farmers that wouldn't let the pig roasts happen on their land because the drunken rowdiness from the MLCers was well known.  The amount of drunken debauchery was quite amazing for such a little college.  Now does this happen at college?  Most certainly.  But should this happen with students who are supposedly going there for a higher calling?  Now the faculty could most certainly snuff this out, but they won't and/or don't.

You're not there to sow wild oats.  You're there to be trained in the Word.  You're there to learn the languages.  You're there to learn how to manage a classroom and teach a child to read.  Christ is supposed to be the focus.  However, this school is no biosphere that protects and shields from sin.  Far from it.  Did everyone drink themselves into a coma?  No.  There were plenty of us that did not.  But far too much drinking among far too many students went on far too many times.

I find it sad that they struck those stats off of the WELS Documented blog.  Of course some of the called workers that read it can be all sanctimonious now I suppose and say things like "This helps no one."  Yet they should remember a time when they helped carry a drunk up the stairs into their dorm room.  Maybe they were the drunk.  Maybe they even had bottles of the stuff in their rooms.  And the cycle continues.
