Good Lord

'Crucifixion maybe too distressing,' theology students warned
The University of Glasgow, part of the elite Russell Group, has introduced the warnings to its theology students studying Creation to Apocalypse: Introduction to the Bible (Level 1).

In one lecture about Jesus, it warned students it "contains graphic scenes of the crucifixion" adding that it would be flagged up to students beforehand. 
In some case students are allowed to absent themselves from the class and lecturers are advised to check on them later in the day.
I hope none of them is planning on a career in the church.  The things one encounters outside of a classroom, with all of the issues of mortality that are brought to a local parish, would maybe kill these precious "theologians".
