All Shorter is going to do is put some folks in a position to lie about their preference. Just like they do know about whether they drink or not. I see this as Baptist hypocrisy. Another example of this hypocrisy just occured in Taylorsville when a deacon of the Baptist church there got caught in a child molestation sting.

You Baptists don't have a lock on the heathens,but you sure do have your share. Lighten up

The Baptists re-write and print their own fake version of the bible; complete with 'homosexual'(added in 1952) where no such word exists in the real Bible
http://www.wnd.com/...
.
Homosexual was coined in 1912; just 99 years ago; impossible to appear in a 2000 year-old book

This means the President of Shorter is a moron and the 'education' offered by the college is as worthless as the ink-jet paper the diploma is printed on

It would not seem to exclude heterosexual males who have sex with female sheep and goats so perhaps some of the cracker trolls on this site should try to find a job there.

I live in Rome Georgia. These people are OUT THERE! Sad thing is, the students, for the most part, are normal folk. It's just the new administration that has hopes of being the new Taliban.

While I disagree with what they are doing, I also support their right to do it. As you said they are a private, religious organization.

Proof that not all gays and lesbians, as well as those who support us are NOT trying to trample on other people's religious freedoms.

I mean after all private religious schools run by moronic ignorant bigot christians should have the right to raise into society future generations of ignorant moronic stupid christardo graduates so the rest of the enlightened people can have an ever present reminder as to just how ignorant christians are.....

I disagree, since my tax dollars end up supporting their organization. They get tax exemptions, fire & police protection, all at taxpayer expense.

It actually is a good idea... i'm one of the few liberals all in favor of school vouchers.... I would like to see schools have the freedom to open up free from athletics (Meaning no sports in the school at all) where emphasis is put on Math, Science, Technical writing, computer programming, reading, and history and that's all.... My school would pump out 10x more future doctors, engineers, scientists, and computer programmers than all the christardo schools combined....

Oh and we would be open and accepting of all kids!!!!

You know, you are right about the word homo, homo, in my 1947 KJB, it says : "a man shall not lie down with a man as if a woman, it is an abomination, and God will smite him for it."
It goes on to say, " a woman shall not uncloth herself before the beasts and take them unto her, it is an abominatin, and God shall smite her for it." God's smite was death in ALL instances in the original KJB, such as the printing I possess.

Dubya signed legislation that allowed them to pilfer FEDERAL money only, but exempted them from binding laws associated with no braindeads left behind. If you check public school REAL scores, against the public cess pools generally called public uhh schools, and I use that term begrudgingly, not the "bell curve" manifested for so long and very well known, then compare the cost per student per day, and when public schools can operate at the same cost, or lower, than their private counterparts, then you all have a valid grievence. I recall a new school recently built in California at some mind f()ck price, that computed out to somewhere in the area of $1 million per seat capacity, no wonder people are enraged over government waste in spending, and for what? Morons that can not read a newspaper or tell me who is buried in Grant's tomb. I am not interested in any fag shit being taught in any school, and certainly not one funded by one penny of taxpayer money.
