No Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll as Georgia University Bans Employee Homosexuality and other stuff In New Pledge


Shorter University, a Christian Baptist school in Rome, Ga., is forcing its 200 employees to sign a statement declaring that they reject homosexuality. Anyone who doesn't sign the pledge risks losing their jobs.

Atlanta’s WSBTV reports that employees who sign the "personal lifestyle pledge" also must reject premarital sex and adultery, and other behavior the school deems to violate the Bible’s teachings. The statement also bans drug use and drinking alcohol in the presence of students, and requires employees to be active in local churches. The lifestyle statement was adopted by the school's board of trustees last month and presented to employees three days later, on Oct. 24.

All new employees will have to sign the pledge upon being hired, and all current employees will have to sign it in order to renew their contract. The pledge notifies employees that they can be fired for violating the new policy.

If this was a Muslim college, there would be outrage. Amerika Land of the Free.

Actually, if it were a Muslim college, we would not be ALLOWED to be outraged, lest we be labeled politically incorrect and culturally insensitive.

We should not lose sight of the fact that this is a RELIGIOUS college... in other words, probably run by a church, which has the right to require its employees to adhere to its standards. By the same token, if employees decline such standards, they also have the right to seek employment elsewhere.

Freedom can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but it still beats all other alternatives.
