A Call Back to Sensibility,
This review is from: Sex and God at Yale: Porn, Political Correctness, and a Good Education Gone Bad (Hardcover)
In light of the controversy surrounding this book, it is necessary to understand that although much of the content describes the administration-sanctioned debauchery of Sex Week at Yale (ironically abbreviated SWAY) the mind-numbingly vile, but necessary, details are but a springboard to what this book is really about: the loss of moral leadership and direction and the devaluation of human life that come from the introduction of the high-sounding, seemingly progressive concepts of moral relativism, multiculturalism, and political correctness into institutions and societies determined to cast off their religious and patriotic heritage as passe and irrelevant. It's about selling out, about the prostitution of a once outstanding educational institution to make money. There is more at stake here than first meets the reader's eye. This book clearly shines a light on a primary reason our country is rapidly losing what made it a world power in years past.
If the descriptions of the sex lectures and demonstrations make you blanch, if smut and pornography make you blush, skim through these passages. Do not decide not to read this book because of these chapters. They are the but the backdrop of the important final chapters, a clarion call to Yale and to everyone interested in the preservation of human dignity and freedom and in keeping America "the land of the free and the home of the brave."

There is an in-depth TV interview with Nathan Harden on the 700 Club on Thurs., March 14, accessed at: CBN.com. The interview reveals much more than is written about in reviews here at Amazon. You can even watch the program for the day if it is after March 14 by going backwards on their TV schedule, which they make easy to find. Interestingly, there is also an interview with Dr. Ben Carson (the neurologist who first separated conjoined twins) on the same program, who talks about other issues that are pressing in America.
