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
