why is it that we as christians can not push our christian beliefs, but a Gay can go into a christian college and push theirs? That is just not right if they want to be gay that is their choice, but go somewhere where they believe the same way.
I agree

I agree totally. We are constantly made to accept beliefs and choices in life that we ourselves do not believe especially in a workplace. If one choses to be gay or be a "nonbeliever", that is your choice. Because I don't believe the way you do then I'm considered prejudice. Stop pushing your choices on others. You made the choice so you should choose to go where that is accepted.

I am going to give you what it all boils down to. I am telleing you this from years of legal research and court cases.

For Belmont U it all boiled down to MONEY. Belmont was about to lose it's special tax status saving them lots and lots of money. If they let the homosexuals in then they keep their special status. If they hold to strict Christian principles and the Bible then they lose all the not for profit money they get from sponsors and the gov't grants. It all boiled down to money.

It is called the 501 (c) 3, not for profit tax status.

The homosexual's (biblical word Sodomites) know this and and they can go to any school, "Christian" or not and the school will bow to the sodomites and the US Fed Gov't. Ask any lawyer they will agree.

You both just said that it is their choice to believe how they wish, yet you tell them to go somewhere else where it's accepted. That's why that 'gay' is talking to you; he wants you to be a little more open-minded. Unless he's pushing you to be gay, the only thing he's pushing is the want for acceptance.

And no one considers you prejudiced if you do not believe in the same way another person does. If you believe in god, and I don't, that's not prejudice. If I tell you I don't believe in god, and you treat me like shit and tell me I'm going to hell because of that, then that would be prejudice.

Also, being gay is not a choice.

The question at issue is why did Belmont change it's policy.

Really? Because no one mentioned anything about a policy. The title may be Belmont University, but all that was said before you came along was that they didn't like someone who was gay coming into their Christian college to 'push their beliefs' and about how 'nonbelievers' and gays should go somewhere where they are accepted and not around them because they just don't believe that way, so they shouldn't have to hear it. I was merely stating my opinion on that matter.

being gay is a choice as is believing or not believing is. We were all born with a choice and it is up to us to make the right choice.One day you will believe in God I just hope it is not to late when you learn the truth. God loves the sinners but hates the sin. Romans 1:27-28 It is time that the christians stand up for what is right and obey Gods laws no matter who it might make made or how much money they will lose. What has this world become? WE ARE NOTHING WITHOUT GOD. God will one day soon Judge this nation and I just hope and pray they open their eyes before it is to late for them.

This is exactly what I was talking about. See, THIS is a perfect example of someone pushing their beliefs onto someone else. I have a choice, but I better make the right one? Utter bullshit.

No one is pushing anything except acceptance. You're the one that is trying to shove your Christian opinions down other people's throats, including mine. I did not tell you to stop believing in god; I simply said that there is nothing wrong with someone wanting to be accepted. We're all fucking people, Christian or not, straight or not.

I know that but when you go to a christian college and ask them to believe the same way you do what do you call that? They way I hear it is she is the one taking them to court because they do not believe the way she does and everyone is bashing the college for standing up for what they believe in. The way I see it is the christians are the ones who are not accepted.WE ARE PEOPLE TOO. Just because we do not believe the same way. It does not make it right to take us to court because of our beliefs. That to me is pushing it down our throats. We can not go into a college and talk about our beliefs it might make someone mad but she can go to a christian college and brag about being lesbian to all the students. We are to love our brother as ourselves but we do not have to accept the sin.

I am very sorry to inform you that it is a secular college. It was Christian only in opinion. They had every right to expect equal treatment under the law.

Belmont would not have buckled and changed it's policy if it had been a Christian college.

"Belmont University is a private, coeducational, liberal arts university located in Nashville, Tennessee, United States. It is the largest Christian university in Tennessee and the second largest private university in the state, behind nearby Vanderbilt University."

Wondering, must you go through all the posts on this topix liking your own and disliking all of mine? That doesn't make you any more right or me any more wrong. It just makes you a child.

Ok so you post their mission statement. They sold out for the money. Can you please understand that. What kind of "Christianity" sells out for the money? What kind O'D "Christian " organization takes money over principles. If a preacher was in the pulpit just for money what would he be? A liar! They didn't want to lose their big monetary gifts so they let the sodomites in. That is not Christianity, that is compromise.
