This truly makes me sad. The college I graduated from in Rome, GA is in the news for some very backwards beliefs.
Yes, it’s a private college, I guess they call it university these days, but come on Shorter University wake up and smell the year, it’s 2012.
I graduated in 1999 and I remember back then several of the professors complained about having to sign a similar form like the one mentioned in the article above. Many good professors left because they had to sign a piece of paper that said they would never drink alcohol.
Funny personal note; I took a final exam with my class and professor at the local Applebees bar one semester. Yep, he left after that year to teach at another college where he was allowed to have a beer or drink wine at dinner.
By the way, I only went there because I received a full baseball scholarship and wanted a degree. I didn’t give a shit that it was a Baptist school.
On a related note of hypocrisy, the music and theater department at Shorter was one of the most well known in the country.
But yeah, probably no way that music/theater students or their professors were gay. No chance at all.
If you read the article, many of the comments below it are downright deplorable.
Fortunately for me, I’ve never donated a dime back to my college because it was generally run by bigots and obese, Southern Baptists. What a sad institution to teach and encourage hate.
