BLACK BUZZ NEWS SERVICE
November 9, 2011
Rome... Shorter University, a Southern Baptist/ Georgia Baptist Convention affiliated institution in Rome, Georgia recently began requiring employees to sign a "personal lifestyle statement" saying they are not gay, or risk being fired, according to news reports. Further the statement adopted on October 21st requires employees to affirm that they reject "all sexual activity not in agreement with the Holy Bible, including, but not limited to, premartial sex, adultery and homosexuality."
May I suggest that said Shorter Institution also include in that lifestyle statement "pedophilia".
Shorter University is a religious institution and under the United States Constitution they do in fact have a right to practice all the tenets of their faith beliefs, regardless of how repugnant those beliefs may be perceived or appear to individuals outside of their faith community.
