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

From a Reader - WELS Patterns

I think the Martin Luther College students gave Jeff Schone
a parochial school skirt to wear.

Adult men, congregational leaders, dressed up as "church ladies" (resembling that of Saturday Night Live skit fame--itself a sarcastic slap)...

A male professor in his fifties wearing tartan boxer shorts over his pants, on stage, before an audience...seriously? How would that be go over in other academic locales? 

College-aged males dressing as parochial schoolgirls (a known subject of lurid fantasy) and striking overtly effeminate poses?

Is there a pattern to all this?

It is not that of employing a debased kind of humor which is myopically viewed  as "funny"?

Humor has long been used as vehicle to sway public opinion for better or worse, knowingly or unwittingly.

It is not "harmless"  or sophomoric as it is so often cracked up to be.

One professor warned against making light of sin by employment of warped humor.

It subtly encourages those  with a proclivity to act out,  to blunt the viciousness, and therefore normalize the perversity which is ostensibly ridiculed.

your tuition money and subsidies down a rat-hole.
