Thanks to my friend Brad for pointing me to this week’s Bigot. The Southern Baptist college in Rome, Georgia, aptly named Shorter (certainly shorter in human rights), has adopted a “faith” policy that bans the employment of gay people. The university also adopted a new motto: “Transforming Lives Through Christ.” Who would Jesus hate? Apparently Shorter University believes that a man who was inseparable from 12 other men would hate the LGBT community.
Employees of Shorter University must now sign a statement:
I have read and agree with the Personal Lifestyle Statement and will adhere to it in its entirety while employed at Shorter University. I understand that failure to adhere to this statement may result in disciplinary action against me, up to and including immediate termination.
Lifestyle? What lifestyle choice are they talking about? When did gay become a “lifestyle” choice. This is as laughable as the Gay Agenda.
Not only do I feel horrible for all of the LGBT employees at Shorter, but my heart breaks for all of the LGBT students and the LGBT community in Georgia. What an ugly message of hate Shorter is sending. What type of world is Shorter envisioning? What is hiding in the closets of the Board of Trustees?
While I know the LGBT community will need the support of our religious brothers and sisters, it is clear that we will not be getting support from the Southern Baptist like the bigots at Shorter University.
