I think businesses all over American should start doing this, and rid themselves in one fell swoop of the liberals within.

It’s also a great way to advertise to heterosexuals that there are job openings.

Good and bad.

They’re identifying one particular sin group. But then, what about gossips, liars, thieves, people with critical attitudes? Those are sins too, and just as damaging.

Good point. This would be a great way to get many leftist out of private colleges. I wish the Federal government could do it.

...among other forbidden activities.

From http://www.shorter.edu/about/personal_lifestyle_statement.pdf

I agree to adhere to and support the following principles (on or off the campus):

1. I will be loyal to the mission of Shorter University as a Christ-centered institution affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention.

2. I will not engage in the use, sale, possession, or production of illegal drugs.

3. I reject as acceptable all sexual activity not in agreement with the Bible, including, but not limited to, premarital sex, adultery, and homosexuality.

4. I will not use alcoholic beverages in the presence of students, and I will abstain from serving, from using, and from advocating the use of alcoholic beverages in public (e.g. in locations that are open to use by the general public, including as some examples restaurants, concert venues, stadiums, and sports facilities) and in settings in which students are present or are likely to be present. I will not attend any University sponsored event in which I have consumed alcohol within the last six hours. Neither will I promote or encourage the use of alcohol.

Are you kidding.

The Queers entrenched in power at other Universities, will jump at the chance to add fresh meat to their perverted Faculty Daisy Chains.

The Shorter University Factbook lists 454 FT & PT employees, including faculty & non-faculty, for 2011-2012. If up to 60 employees refused to sign the lifestyle agreement and resigned, that's a rate of approximately 13%. Homosexuals represent 1-2% of the population nationwide. A 6-10 times higher rate for the university is not surprising, given that academia is one of the career areas that attract a disproportionate number of poofs. (Along with entertainment, fashion, journalism, clergy, hairdressing, etc.)

The phrase “threshing floor” comes to mind...

separating the wheat and the chaff.
