Texas College Campus Divided Over Bible for Porn Campaign

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

A Texas college campus is locked in a fierce debate after a group of students launched the "smut for smut" campaign, trading bibles and other religious texts for porn, reported.

Atheist students at the University of Texas at San Antonio announced that any student over the age of 18 will receive pornographic materials if they trade in religious materials, according to

Leaders of this atheist campaign allege that porn is no worse than what's written in religious texts.

A university spokesman says that this controversial cause is completely legal, though he admits a majority of the students on campus do not agree with it, according to,2933,587737,00.html

As disgusting as it is, it is legal. Whatever happened to toleranc

  • Are colleges supposed to be Christian? did I miss something? these people are trying to shock you and it's working. I am a Christian, but I also live in America where I have the right to ignore things that offend me and they are allowed to offend me. Have you ever been to college? There is much worse going on...

  • too each their own. No body would be upset if it were the reverse, porn for bibles. Everyone is entitled to express themselves and views how they wish as long it's in a peaceful way. their porn isn't hurting anyone. they aren't forcing it on anyone. let it go and they will fade. They're getting their ten minutes and soon it will be over.

  • They can get in big trouble if they distribute porn to a minor. I know I went to college before I turned 18, and I had a 15 year old in one of my classes.

    Not to mention programs where high school and Jr. High kids will take a college class at the same time as their normal schooling.

  • It is all about the freedom of speech here, whether you agree or not it doesn't matter, they are excercising their right to free speech, this is what this country is all about.

  • Since when did tolerance have to extend to pornography?

    I will totally put up with it being legal for the sake of the whole 1st amendment thing, but I see no need to embrace it, or feel "all cool" about it.

  • While it may be legal, it is clearly an attack on CHRISTIANS. I wonder what the talk/consequences would be if this were porn for a Quran exchange?
