The Striptease of William and Mary

A few months ago, I posted an article about the College of William and Mary removing the cross from their chapel so that all students of every religious persuasion would feel welcome in the building. Well, the college is in the headlines again. tellsof how they recently welcomed “The Sex Workers’ Art Show” to campus.

The show is described as “an eye-popping evening of visual and performance art created by people in the sex industry to dispel the myth that they are anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses.”

When college President Gene Nichol was confronted by students and alumni over his decision to allow the show, he was quoted as saying, “I don’t like this kind of show, but it is not the practice … of universities to censor or cancel performances because they are controversial.”

But critics of Nichol’s decision late last year to remove from the university’s Wren Chapel a cross that had been located there since 1940 called his latest stance hypocritical.

He can’t stop this so-called art show, but he can censor Christians’ displays. Wonder how this latest action (or lack of action on the president’s part) will affect alumni donations.
