What an awful thing to do. It’s easy to take shots at people’s faith, the hard thing to do is show some respect.

Ahead of Easter, students mock Jesus, joke his semen provides ‘everlasting life’
A series of jokes and banners published and hung at Hamilton College recently has upset some observers who argue anti-Christian sentiments fester at the small, New York-based private liberal arts institution.
Most recently, a student satire publication called the Duel Observer published a mock article on campus newsstands during Holy Week that replaced Jesus Christ’s blood with his ejaculate then joked “it will still give us everlasting life.”
The satire piece ends with a description of an explosion that destroys the “Rosary Club,” the name of a real student group on campus.
On Tuesday, student athletes also hung a banner (pictured) in the dining hall advertising an upcoming tennis match that used for inspiration the Last Supper mural by Leonardo da Vinci.
The banner asks the campus if it likes eating “cock” for supper, possibly a reference to the rival team’s mascot, and appears to overlay images of student athletes and the coach in the place of the apostles and Jesus.
The Hamilton College student who provided the images to The College Fix is Devin Mendelson, 22, a senior at the school who founded the Rosary Club last November.
Mendelson said his club has upset some of his peers and campus leaders because of its strong defense of the unborn and traditional marriage. Administrators suspended his club’s email account for nearly three weeks in March, he said.
Reached by telephone Thursday, the college’s Senior Director of Media Relations Vige Barrie declined to comment to The College Fix. The Duel Observer also did not respond to an emailed request for comment.
