Christian University in Georgia Requires Staff to Sign No Gay Lifestyle Pledge

A Georgia university is gaining attention for a new document that will rule out homosexuals as possible employees. The school's board of trustees recently adopted a ‚ÄúPersonal Lifestyle Statement‚ÄĚ document that all faculty and staff must sign. If they don't, their employment with the school will be terminated.

Shorter University, which is based in Rome, Ga., is affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, and expects its staff to help it further its Christ-centered goals. The school's new motto, ‚ÄúTransforming Lives through Christ,‚ÄĚ was also approved during the board of trustees meeting in addition to the lifestyle statement and a number of other related documents.

Removing the combustibles early reduces the need to put out the fire later. Sounds like a good idea.

It is a sad day when a Christian Institution has to define what is moral for a Christian Institution. They should know, and they whould not have to fear Civil contradiction. Now in some cases it is necessary to define or confess Church doctrine, but when that has been done, a statement of dos and don'ts shouldn't be necessary.
Col. 2:19-23

Well, at the very least, this should keep the homos in the closet. The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin. However if they think their faculty is Christian why a requirement that is more than the Bible has?

Matthew 5
33 "Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, 'YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR VOWS TO THE LORD.'
34 "But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God,
35 or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
36 "Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.
37 "But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes' or 'No, no'; and anything beyond these is of evil.---NASB
