In Uganda such a tradition is associated with witchcraft.

But the conclusion to this association is way off.  Everyone knows you tie a witch a post and dance around him or her naked and chanting to remove their powers.

And then the sex.

Yes, but it's Uganda, filled with backwards-thinking and superstitious people.

... wait, I think I just described the United States.  Eh.

It's called skyclad running and if you speak the words of unmaking you can fly.

so you can do naked running just so long as you don't make it a competition?

TFA mentions one small college imposing the ban, not "university campuses".

Considering The Family was a driving force in their moral bankruptcy, it's more of a reflection of what a swath of people wish our moral standards were.

Good point.

By "The Family" You're referring to that wacko secretive Christian club that a bunch of right wing politicians belong to, right?

Yep, those guys.  Ugh.


If people like that were ever to seize power here in the United States, it really would only be a matter of time until there were "Witch" Burnings and all that other fun stuff we read about from the dark ages.

All in the name of Jesus.
