FULL TITLE: 'I could be fired because I'm transgender': Female theology professor risks job at Christian college and marriage after revealing male identity
A theology professor at a Christian college is set to be replaced in his role after coming out as transgender.
For 15 years Heath Adam Ackley taught at Azusa Pacific University in California under the name Dr Heather Ann Clements, but recently he broke the news to students - and his husband - that he had been hiding his gender identity.
The 47-year-old told Religion News Service that the institution agreed to pay him for the rest of the academic year, however, because his revelation could present a 'distraction', it's preferred that other professors take over his classes.

'I did not get a sense directly from the individuals with whom I was speaking that they had a theological problem with transgender identity,' Mr Ackley said.

ALEDGEDLY female professor.
“broke the news to students - and his husband”
EEEWWWWW. . .
The concept of being transgender is utter nonsense. Might as well claim to be a unicorn. A person is what he or she was born as (yes, I know there are some birth defects that can confuse the issue, but that is not what people are calling transgender).
Homosexuality and “transgender” is a denial of God as the Creator.
Yes saw that. Am wondering how his husband took it without going ballistic?
I’m so confused. Born male or female?
No worries, professor; if your current employer fires you, Ivy League schools will be lining up with fat contracts.
Born male now eunuch.
Neither “his” nor “hers” seem to fit transies. Maybe we could come up with a personal pronoun for them, better than “it”.
But she’s been writing about women studies, and women in religion??? And she thinks she is a man. How could she possibly write about women??? Will she pull her books from the bookstores?
Was it a he or a she at birth? Is it becoming a male or what? I’m confused.
It may be nonsense to you and me, but this is Holy Grail stuff to liberals. We have to be liberal regarding trans-whatever peoples who teach at hateful intolerant Christian universities. (Sarcasm)
I expect puff pieces in the media, as this is liberal dream territory.
But He’s been writing about women studies, and women in religion??? And He’s thinks he is a WOman. How could He possibly write about women??? ——there fixed it for you!!!
Google cache of interview, circa 2007:
I wonder if this man is repenting, or doing a big “ha ha, look what I got away with”....
Neither his nor hers seem to fit transies. Maybe we could come up with a personal pronoun for them, better than it.
“I expect puff pieces in the media, as this is liberal dream territory.”
Without doubt. She will be portrayed as a kind, loving person who just wants to help people but she is denied her dream by those hateful conservatives.
Guess she wouldn’t want to hear that God doesn’t accept women pastors, either. :-)
You’re confused? Join the club.
with this whole ‘LGBT’ STUFF, I think I understand the LG, lesbian gay, same sex attraction concept. But when you get to the end, to the “T” part of LGBT, I never understand.
But, to the dismay of liberals, I honestly don’t want to understand. I DON’T want to think about what these people have going on below the belt, or in their heads. Send me to re-education camp now, along with the rodeo clowns.
S for she
H for he ...
and it for ... well ... it ...
Of course if they were fired by a mosque the LGBTQDGSDTR community would say that is fine because they have to resplect I-Slam...
Wait a second here....
1) This man chopped off his own penis.
2) He deceived another man (granted, undoubtedly a raging moron) into believing that he’s a woman.
3) He actually pretended to get married with this other man under these false pretenses.
This pervert needs to be not only fired, but fired and ridiculed with extreme prejudice. And then the “spouse” should have the right to kill him in any manner he sees fit.
His husband?????? How did a husband not know??????
sounds like a girl who wants to be a boy
Still retching, I think. . .
“Youre confused? Join the club.”
Yea and I’m still waiting to find out what Laz would hit it with.
Apparently not, but now. . .
I apologize for being crass, but ...
For x number of years she's been a she ... getting ... um ... pushed, rammed, poked ... whatever ... it's an entirely different movement than being 'on the bottom'
And again I apologize but ... did shit somewhere in the past say ... I wanna' do that ?
THAT'S worse than an identity crisis.
OK...Post #26 made that succinctly clear...I think :)
This is a woman, who has never been anything but a woman.
Recently, she has started grooming and dressing like a man. There were no "surprises" for the school or for her husband. She hasn't yet undergone the process of hormone "therapy" or doctor assisted self-mutilation.
Essentially, she's off her rocker. These days, that's not a very exclusive club. The UK paper (or at least this reporter and editor) are apparently confused. Here is a variant on an old story for any FReepers who might be confused.
Lincoln: "Mr. Cameron, if a woman calls herself a man, how man testicles does she have?"
Sec'y Cameron: "Well, two, I guess."
Lincoln: "No, she still has no testicles. Calling a woman a man doesn't make her one."
That and post #28
She's a woman, always been a woman, and hasn't had any alterations. She's just realized her "identity" is male.
No alterations. Dumbass PC article and headline.
All that's changed is that she now "thinks of herself" as a man.
God only knows what hubby and kids are going through right now.
Born female. Still female. No changes have been made.
It doesn’t say how long she’s been married. But if it’s any length of time, then I should think the “husband” must know, and agreed not to say anything.
Also, it’s not clear that they are really married, if the wedding took place before California legalized same-sex marriages. Unless they “remarried.”
The whole business is bizarre. And she claims to be a pastor in the Mennonite Church? I shouldn’t think those guys would approve, either.
Gag me with a spoon.
She's a woman. She was born a woman and is still a woman. She has had no hormones or operations (yet.) The only thing that's different is that she now "admits to herself" that she's a man. That, and the fact that "reporters" can't seem to accurately report news anymore.
OK. I stand corrected by posts that explain this mess that appeared while I was writing this one.
This is news to the husband? This perfesser has problems that run very deep....
So now Heather looks and dresses like she is a lesbian.
“This is a woman, who has never been anything but a woman. “
It is confusing but at the very end of the article it reads this:
“In a bid to complete his male-to-female transformation he now hopes to get hormone treatment and surgery.”
The person who wrote this keeps referring to “Heather” as “He” and I believe this is why it’s confusing.
Everyone is confused because the PC dumbass reporter has worded this article in a way that makes it confusing.
She is a woman. She was born a woman. She is still a woman. To date, she has not had hormone "therapy" or an addadictomy. All that has changed is that she now "admits" that "deep down" she's really a man. She hid her "identity." She did not hide the fact that she used to be a man. She wasn't.
OK...I’m confused, again! I don’t really give a cr@p what it is...good luck getting this figured out.
