The Shortest Seminary Course

Organizations use a distribution feature offered Religion News Service to send their news releases out to people like me. Yesterday’s releases included this one:

“The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, in conjunction with the Chicago Theological Seminary, has launched a first-of-its-kind curriculum, ‘Theology and Reproductive Choice,’ to teach seminary students theological perspectives on reproductive freedom as a distinct subject.”

It seems to me this would be the shortest seminary course in history.

"Thou shalt not kill."

Four words. Yeah, that's pretty short.

Or, "Don't".

1 word.

I don't think they're using "reproductive choice" as a code word for abortion, but rather, for birth control in general.

In that case, you can actually make a pretty good course out of it. Discuss various views of birth control or non-birth control from Biblical and traditional perspectives... compare FQ, NFP, FAM, and all sorts of other TLA's... sounds like it could be a good course.

Of course, if they really are trying to talk about abortion, it's not much of a course.
