Georgia University Requires Employees To Sign Statement Saying They’re Not Gay
Shorter University, a Baptist college in Rome, GA, sent a “personal lifestyle pledge” to its 200 employees October 26.
Employees who sign the pledge promise to reject homosexuality, as well as premarital sex, adultery and other behavior the school says violates the Bible’s teaching.
Don Dowless, the school’s president, told WSBTV that teachers and administrators who don’t sign the pledge could lose their jobs.
“I think that anybody that adheres to a lifestyle outside of what the biblical mandate is would not be allowed to continue here,” Dowless told the station.
The statement also bans drug use, drinking alcohol in the presence of students and requires employees to be active in local churches.
One employee told the Georgia Voice newspaper that the pledge has some fearing “witch hunts” on campus.Click here for reuse options!
