Christian Daycare Says No to Gay, Unchurched Employees
A daycare operating inside a church in Waukee, Iowa, is stirring debate in the local community for requiring employees to reapply and follow new Christian lifestyle guidelines as it closes and reopens next month.

Nearly two dozen teachers who worked at Happy Time Daycare and Preschool have to reapply for their jobs as Point of Grace Church turns the operation into Point of Grace Children’s Academy beginning Sept. 6. Along with short notice, however, employees have voiced concerns over the Christian Lifestyle Commitment that they must agree to.

The agreement states that teachers must abstain from: viewing pornography, drinking an excessive amount of alcohol, homosexual conduct and pre-marital sex, according to an application posted on the church’s website. ...

Ah, but Jim, Christian widows should be being provided for by their families and their churches. Problem is, most churches would rather their pastors (popes) live in palatial homes and drive an expensive car than waste money on something as insignificant as a lowly widow. 'Family Life Centers', gymnasiums and youth mission cruises are also much higher on the priority list at almost all churches.

For a group of Bible believing Christians to provide day care (warehousing) for children so that mom can go out and grab her hands full of the world's baubles is the ultimate in hypocrisy and the equivalent of shaking a fist in God's face. Talk about making provision for sin!

Churches and Christian families need to provide for widows and others incapable of fending for themselves instead of providing seminary grads with a lavish lifestyle. Churches have no business pandering to selfish women (and men) who lack natural affection for their own children and put material gain ahead of their kids' well being.

Ah, you mean that grandparents, aunts, uncles, can't look after the children either? The "lone wolf" family isn't the Biblical example either. But of course as the booklet has it, Instructions to Wives, Mothers and Their Husbands or as the sermon does, The Nature of Women and Their Role.

Many a widow during the 19th century had to do honest work she no doubt rather had not done, to keep her children from starving. She might have liked to have a daycare center around--if there weren't other Christians ready to step in to help.

Good this makes sense that a christian day care would require the staff to act like christians. I say Bravo Bravo I wish more christian organizations had standards like that. As these people wil be looking after children so they should have morals and that's a awesome stance keep it up.

Daycare for children = Parents not strangers.

One would expect that a church ran daycare center would at least have a moral clause for its employees, and I for one support their religious restrictions as well, as the ACLU itself said!

excerpt in the article wrote:
The American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa told the Des Moines Register that the academy has the right to practice their religious freedom. Under the regulations of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, “religious corporations, associations, educational institutions, or societies are exempt from the federal laws that EEOC enforces when it comes to the employment of individuals based on their particular religion.”
One thing however, John Y., a Catholic daycare center would have to ban it's own priests and nuns from it, to protect the children, Abuse in the Catholic Church. Since many priests are drunkards they would have to be banned automatically.

Article Quote;
"The agreement states that teachers must abstain from: viewing pornography, drinking an excessive amount of alcohol, homosexual conduct and pre-marital sex,"

If this is the 'NEW' application and guidelines then I wonder what the staff were previously seen to be like?

Article Quote;
"“Describe how you came to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior?”; and “Have you ever practiced a religious faith other than Christianity?”"

I wonder who will judge the responses to these questions, and what "special qualifications" will be decided upon in relation to, what is in effect, "What God has done in your life.?"

It is good that the church is requiring the employees of the daycare facility to be heterosexual and be churchgoers.
