Last October, news broke that Shorter University, a Christian college in Rome, Georgia, had decided to ask its employees to sign a controversial pledge that affirms that they are not engaging in homosexuality, among other forbidden activities. Now, after scores of employees refused to sign the document, the college, which is affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, has reportedly received a massive number of resignations.
Rather than renewing their contracts with the private school, around 50 staffers (the NY Daily News reports that the number is closer to 60) refused to sign the “Personal Lifestyle Statement,” and simply decided to throw in the towel.

Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

It's a private school, they have the right to enforce their own code of conduct.
I always wondered about the schools that made students sign contracts that they wouldn't listen to rock music, watch R rated movies, and so on. I know Wheaton, Liberty and some other Christian colleges did that when I was college-aged. I was surprised, because I don't think Calvin College made their students sign such a pledge.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Calvin students were wild in the 80s, they got away with stuff we never could have done at WMU. One of my coworkers at Steketee's lived in Calvin dorms and told me that they used to smoke weed openly in the dorm's tv room. We would have been in trouble for that, they actually enforced the age 21 drinking age at Western, to some degree. You couldn't walk around the halls with open beverages, for example, although they didn't stop you from drinking in your room.

I could not work for someone that was in my business that deep!The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

I never found them intrusive......mostly just common sense.
All upper-eschelon employees are required to execute and have these personally enshrined in their personnel file.
