Lawmakers to university: Explain expulsion of Christian
WND ^ | 24 APRIL 2010 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 04/25/2010 4:39:38 AM PDT by rdb3

Lawmakers in Michigan are preparing to call on the carpet leaders of taxpayer-supported universities across the state after top officials at Eastern Michigan University expelled from a counseling program a Christian student who refused to argue in support of the homosexual lifestyle.

As WND reported, trouble began for master's program student Julea Ward when she refused to accept a client whose issue concerned a homosexual relationship.

The school expelled her from the counseling program March 12, 2009, for refusing to abrogate her own personal religious beliefs and support the homosexual lifestyle.

So there is no respect for multi-cultural diversity.

Gotta love diversity. Imagine if a muslim counselor rejected this on the same grounds.

Julea Ward

"The Bible teaches that God ordained sexual relationships between men and women and not between persons of the same sex. … While people may struggle with homosexual inclinations and behavior, I believe (and the Bible teaches) that people should strive to cultivate sexual desires for persons of the opposite sex. I am morally obligated to adhere to these fundamental teachings of the Christian faith, … It would be aviolation of my religious beliefs to be required to affirm or validate homosexual conduct."

Strong Christian woman

“Bend the knee”
A message Christians have dealt with for about 2,000 years.

Even if she didn’t adhere to what the bible teaches but still believed homosexuality is wrong, I wonder what the outcome would have been?

It certainly looks as though this beautiful, articulate young woman may have been set up. May God Almighty bless and protect her!

The school expelled her from the counseling program March 12, 2009,
for refusing to abrogate her own personal religious beliefs and support
the homosexual lifestyle.

Thus her academic advisors MUST destroy her and her
“freedom to choose”.

Liberals are only “pro-choice” when it comes to abortion.

The PC educators would have still removed her.

The reason is Liars always hate the Truth. The “tolerance” of the Left only works toward lefties or evil people.

Yes, I agree. She looks and sounds like a very intelligent well read person. And she is attractive, unlike the typical leftie women.

Sounds like someone on the faculty wanted to "make some moves" on her down the road for some reason ~ we can only guess what.

Most likely there's someone on the faculty who is quite willing to rat out the perp ~ and I suspect this young lady's lawyers know what's coming next.

Time to expel the university instead.

“Liberals are only “pro-choice” when it comes to abortion.”

Liberals are pro-choice when it comes to deviant behavior. Barney comes to mind, Bill/Monica et al come to mind.

Here is what she did wrong. She should have put on a burka and said “In my religion if you are a filthy disease (infidel) ridden queer you get your head cut off with a sword! Allah Snackbar!”

I think she would also have had to say "Death to America" somewhere in there.

If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. But do not care to convince him. Men will believe what they see. Let them see.

Ward had explained in detail to school officials she was not discriminating against someone based on sexual orientation.

Millions of people have bought into the 'I don't care what you do in your "bedroom," you do "your thing" and I'll do mine' lie. The homosexual lobby has gotten their foot and body all the way through the door now. Now all they want is for everyone to bow to their god. Their god is Ramus Upus. It is quite simple in their eyes now. "Who are you to say homosexuality is deviant?"

"Morality" will now be determined by their way of thinking not the God of the bible!

Ms Ward is misguided if she thinks she is "not discriminating" though. She absolutely is discriminating between good and evil. Her belief system tells her that the "sexual orientation" of homosexuals is sin!

You stick to you principles Julea Ward.

What you are doing is right in the sight of the Our Lord.

This E.M.U. is not the Fighting Hurons E.M.U. that I graduated from that stood for standards and principles.

Stay strong Julea, trust in the Lord. Prayers for your strength.

I believe she has an excellent case. At no time did she come in contact with the person seeking counseling. She was up front in advance with what she would do and would not do. It was the type of counseling she objected to - not the target of that counseling. It should be easy to find another counselor who requested out of serving a particular client for some other reason. I would be willing to bet that in that instance, the counselor was not expelled from school.

Always remember - Equal protection is the enemy of the left.
