University To Staff: Swear You’re Not Gay Or You’re Fired

From Talking Points Memo:

A Christian college in Georgia is asking all employees to sign a “personal lifestyle statement” declaring their heterosexuality.

Shorter University instituted the pledge in late October, the GA Voice reports, and it reads, in part, “I reject as acceptable all sexual activity not in agreement with the Bible, including, but not limited to, premarital sex, adultery and homosexuality.”

According to university president Don Dowless, the pledge doesn’t intend to offend. “Our goal is to declare who we are” he told WSB-TV. But if you don’t sign it, your job may be at risk.

“Anybody who adheres to a lifestyle that is outside of what the biblical mandate is, what the board has passed, including the president, would not be allowed to continue here,” Dowless added.

So does that mean they’re employees may buy slaves?

“‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. 46 You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.” Leviticus 25:44-46

Texas Judge William Adams Allegedly Beating Daughter: Horrifying Video

From HoustonPress:

The Internet is blowing up with a video allegedly posted by the daughter of an Aransas County judge that she says shows him beating her.

Someone who says she is the daughter of Judge William Adams posted the 2004 video only recently. The hard-to-take clip shows a man whipping her with a belt because she was downloading music from the net.

“Bend over the fucking bed!!” he screams as he belts her while she tries to squirm away. At another point he threatens to hit her “in your fucking face.”

At another point a woman, who the poster says is her mother, comes in and tells her to bend over “like a 16-year-old and take it.”

And Adams has admitted that it was him in the video:

ROCKPORT – Aransas County Court at Law Judge William Adams has spoken to our Andy Liscano about a video the judge’s daughter posted on Youtube showing a beating in 2004.

Judge Adams told us, “It happened years ago.. I apologized.”

When asked if he thought the conduct in the video was excessive, Judge Adams said, “It’s not as bad as it looks on tape.”

Judge Adams also informed us he has already contacted the Judicial Review in Austin and “more will come out” during the investigation.

No, getting beaten by a belt is actually a delightful experience. Like enjoying an ice cream cone.

Rand Paul is Still a Gigantic Tool

From TPM:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has an interesting take on Herman Cain’s growing scandal: honestly, he says, these days it seems like women can’t take a joke.

“There are people now who hesitate to tell a joke to a woman in the workplace, any kind of joke, because it could be interpreted incorrectly,” he told the National Review. “I don’t. I’m very cautious.”

Paul, whose own campaign was marked by allegations he mistreated a woman years ago, says the media shouldn’t be reporting stories like the one that’s put Cain in all the hot water he’s in this week.

‘In my election, I had an anonymous girl from college — who I still don’t know — make accusations against me,” he told NR. “I don’t think you should print stuff like that. To libel someone’s character and not put your name on it, I think is inappropriate and shouldn’t be printed.”

It’s important to point out here that multiple reporters knew the name of the woman in Paul’s past as well as the two women involved in the original Politico report that started the Cain ball rolling. The names are usually withheld in cases like this to protect sources, which is a time-honored practice in politics it would be surprising if Paul has never engaged in. Cain’s campaign certainly has.
