Entire Faculty Senate at Christian College Resigns After Pro-Homosexual Professor Denied Promotion

WENHAM, Mass. — All seven members of the faculty Senate at a Christian college in Massachusetts have resigned after a professor who has advocated for changes in the evangelical school’s policies on homosexual behavior was recently denied a promotion.

According to reports, Margaret DeWeese-Boyd, an assistant professor of sociology at Gordon College, recently filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, claiming that she had been denied a promotion because of her criticism of the school’s policy over the past four years.

Gordon College, which according to its website, aims to “deepen the faith [of students] by integrating Christian beliefs and practice into all aspects of [the] educational experience,” prohibits sexual activity outside of marriage in its Life and Conduct Statement—including between those of the same sex.

The school also holds to the scriptural position that God created the woman for the man, as outlined in the book of Genesis.

“The Gordon community is expected to refrain from any sexual intercourse—heterosexual or homosexual; premarital or extramarital—outside of the marriage covenant,” an explanation of the college’s policy on homosexuality reads.

Gordon notes that its lifestyle statement does not refer to those that struggle with attractions to those of the same sex, but only prohibits engaging in homosexual behavior. The school’s policies also forbid drunkenness, profanity, blasphemy, lying and other behaviors that are contrary to biblical law.

DeWeese-Boyd has specifically been a vocal opponent of the college’s policy on homosexuality, and has organized training sessions and events surrounding homosexual rights. The faculty Senate had recommended that she be promoted, but in February, Gordon College President D. Michael Lindsay declined to upgrade the assistant professor to a full teaching position.

DeWeese-Boyd then filed a complaint, and on April 5th, it was announced that all seven members of the faculty Senate had resigned. According to the Boston Globe, while DeWeese-Boyd was not specifically mentioned, the Senate said the resignations regarded the president’s decision not to heed their recommendations for promotion.

“Gordon’s president and provost were quite surprised to learn just a few hours before a regular monthly faculty meeting … that the seven members of the Senate had decided to resign from their elected roles as faculty representatives in the promotion and tenure review process,” college officials said in a statement.

“The administration continues to believe that a highly effective Senate facilitates the flourishing of Gordon’s faculty and will work with them to resolve the impasse in this situation, especially where perspectives clearly differ on the process and outcomes,” it read.

Gordon College spokesman Rick Sweeney also told reporters that the college has “strong and pointed disagreement” with DeWeese-Boyd’s allegations in her discrimination complaint, but declined to elaborate, citing a desire for privacy in personnel issues.

As previously reported, Gordon College first came under fire in 2014 after President Lindsay was found to be among those who signed a letter to Barack Obama requesting that a religious exemption be included in the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which bars the government from contracting with “discriminatory” organizations.

In an online message to Gordon College students and staff, Lindsay explained that he signed the letter out of his belief that religious entities should not be punished for being faithful to the Scriptures.

“My sole intention in signing this letter was to affirm the college’s support of the underlying issue of religious liberty, including the right of faith-based institutions to set and adhere to standards which derive from our shared framework of faith, and which we all have chosen to embrace as members of the Gordon community,” he wrote.

    Let them go. They don’t belong there and neither does she, much less promoted. There are educators out there with deep Christian values who need good jobs. You will not miss these compromisers.

    • sandraleesmith46

      Those seven were against promoting her; they should stay and the college president considering the promotion go, along with the professor.

      • rocky2

        Are you kidding? Let them rot in hell where the Bible says they are going. God hates gay behavior! You must be gay. Join her while she is escorted to hell.

        • Hugh1

          This was Rev. Fred Phelps claim from Westboro Baptist Church. He was the best advocate for same-sex equality in the country. It wasn’t intentional, it was because his statements were so obviously hateful and anti-Christian.

      • getstryker

        I believe that you may have misunderstood the positions of the college president and senate:

        “The faculty Senate had recommended that she be promoted, but in February, Gordon College President D. Michael Lindsay declined to upgrade the assistant professor to a full teaching position.”

    • Hugh1

      There is a kind of global ignorance manifest here where logic is supposedly adapted from the bible to claim that Christ condemned homosexuality: there is the Old Testament and Leviticus, the new Testament and Matthew, claims of what God said, claims of what Jesus said, claims that no one is born gay, claims that gays are going to hell etc. ad nauseum.

      No one has yet addressed the consequences of these spurious claims. Worse, anti-gay preachers, in the name of Christ, have taken their anti-gay platforms to the international stage, promoting their agenda in Africa, Russia and the former Soviet republics, and in Muslim countries. They promote hate against gays with disinformation campaigns thereby inducing anti-gay hatred in local communities. Violence directed against gays is a common consequence.

      One day the causes of homosexuality will be known, likely decoded from genetic matter of the mother and the fetus. In many of these countries, abortion is a common form of birth control. Once the genie is out of the bottle, how many abortions will be performed by parents influenced by anti-gay false propaganda? Devalue human life if you must, but don’t ever blame Jesus, because he never told you to do anything of the sort.

        So-called Christians have so much HATE I am trans-gender and i am still a Christian.
        Judge not lest ye be judged. The Trans-gender people have been around
        since before Jesus was on earth. John 3:16 i am saved. Your Judgement
        on my is a Sin. Let those without sin cast the first stone ! _
        Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)
        7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
        2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:
        and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
        3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,
        but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

        • Chet

          Educate us, please, via citing any verse of the Holy Bible depicting anyone as being “transgender” since before Jesus was on Earth, as you’ve so stated. Or at any other time in the dawn of creation…

        • Hugh1

          Tanya, this is a very thoughtful and interesting thesis. A good part of it may have a scientific basis. It is a mystery to me how anyone claiming to walk in the footsteps of Christ can find it in their hearts to deny trans people their humanity, regardless of science or religion.

      • Chet

        Oh, how so very foolish. According to your theology, God Almighty destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for nothing of their own doing, but, merely, for acting out their own inborn inbred tendencies. How ridiculous. There is not one verse supportive of homosexuality within God’s Word, the Holy Bible… Then again, you know that don’t you… Nor can a normal man find support for fornication or adultery…

        • Hugh1

          Sodom and Gomorrah? if you insist on applying the Old Testament to your life, read Leviticus once again, since you are certainly condemed to hell.

          • Chet

            You might as well see Romans 1:18-32, specifically v 24-28. Then, there’s 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, specifically v 9. There are others. Regardless of how one seeks to justify his desires, i.e., homosexuality, adultery, fornication, if they’re in conflict with God’s Word, man loses… The Word of God abides forever…Don’t be deceived by the god of this world… Jesus saves, Jesus forgives and Jesus delivers… There is no other way…

        • Paul W. Conant

          I agree.

      • Chet

        The cause of homosexuality is already known. It’s the same cause which brings about adultery, fornication, hatred, theft, killing, child molestation, drunkenness and all other evils man can enjoy and indulge. The cause is SIN and it is in the heart of every man via birth and practice. The one and only cure and deliverance from such wickedness in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified, buried, resurrected and coming again for His own. No SIN can be justified in God’s Word, the Holy Bible, try as we might…

        • Hugh1

          Chet, you just made this up. So, you intend to tell your child that he is like a drunk when when he tells you that he is gay? You child will think that you have mental issues.

          • Chet

            No, I tell him he is and does what his heart desires him to do, whether drunkenness, drugs, adultery, theft, hatred, murder, theft, fornication and homosexuality etc. Then, I owe it to him to share God’s truth with him and help him understand why.

            You see, Hugh, the heart of man is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it. All men are born sinners with a compulsion to do their own thing whatever that happens to be. Yet, God loves all us sinners and He has provide the solitary means by which man can be redeemed and forgiven and saved for sure and know it, an that is via the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified, buried, living today and soon to be returning for His own… Thanks for this opportunity to share God’s good news…

        • Paul W. Conant

          I agree with Chet. And he didn’t make that up; just read Romans 1:18-32, an apt description of the times in which we live.

          • Chet

            How true, Sir. And here’s an OT verse just as applicable all these ages since: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” Genesis 6:5, Holy Bible.

  • Stephen

    I think those seven members of the faculty Senate need to have gone, along with the one denied the promotion! There is good reason to question the authenticity of their faith. This is yet another example of “tares” having crept in to undermine the practice of sound Bible doctrine in that college! This has not only happened in churches, schools and colleges, but also in media, and in all of our local, state, and federal government bodies across America to turn our country away from Christian culture . We are decades late effectively confronting it, but we must do so NOW! It’s not just happening here, it’s everywhere! Christians must fall down in prayer and rise up to action! For Christ sake, the churches sake, for the gospels sake, for freedoms sake, for our children and grand children’s sake!

    • Hugh1

      Sounds like the prototypical republican line of the mid 90s. Who is it that is turning folks ayay from Christian culture, gays? Their families, co-workers, neighbors, and friends? Or is it homophobes who claim to speak in Christ’s name on matters of sexuality?
      PS I noticed that you didn’t say Christ said…

      • Jason Todd

        Considering 1) there’s no such thing as homophobia and 2) Jesus at no time spoke in favor of tolerating sin, I would say you have no idea what you are talking about.

        • Hugh1

          Jason, you just created a nothing sandwich.

          • Jason Todd

            Is that supposed to be an argument?

          • Hugh1

            No, it’s an expression that I was looking for an argument and didn’t find one.

          • Jason Todd

            I argued with facts. Stubborn, pesky things they are. And snarky comments won’t change them.

      • Royce E. Van Blaricome

        “Or is it Ambassadors of Christ who claim to speak in Christ’s name on matters of sexuality?”

        There, fixed it for ya!

  • Reason2012

    Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

    2 Peter 2:1-2 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”

    2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

    Abide by God’s Word, or throw it ALL out – to follow only a certain percent of it no better than ignoring it all. Do not be deceived by these false Christians who are really seeking to destroy God’s truth, in this case by trying to pretend God is just fine with homosexual behaviors and desires people dwell on.

    • msFeathers

      Good Scripture references!

  • Michex

    Yeh, how terrible when a Christian institution of any kind establishes Christian rules of behavior or morality.
    Christian colleges should maybe create courses on sex orgies and how to engage in them?
    Or maybe they should hire Satanic faculty for the sake of “diversity”?

    • Chris

      How great when a Christian school tries to hire based upon ideology rather than ability. It will lead to that school and fundiism in general becoming culturally irrelevant that much sooner.

      • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Ability and ideology go hand-in-hand when it comes to teaching. How can you not know that?

      • Amos Moses

        seeking to be “RELEVANT” ……….. MAKES us IRRELEVANT …….. and how could you NOT know that ………..

      • Michex

        Which is exactly what liberals want to happen to Christian schools – become defunct. You should be happy.

        • Chris

          I worked in a Christian school which hired its teachers based on ability. They are still operating. In fact they are expanding. I was, and remain, a Zoroastrian. The school couldn’t have cared less providing that I taught the doctrine correctly. While I was on their time I taught their subjects.

          What you don’t seem to realise is that teachers are, by and large, professionals. If a Christian school hires an atheist teacher or a Buddhist teacher and tells them ‘teach these Christian doctrines’ then that’s what the teacher will do. If the teacher has a problem with that then they’ll leave and the school can hire someone else.

          • Michex

            Typical liberal teacher, free of any values except leftist ones.
            Following your logic, if a Buddhist or Muslim is a good manager and knows the tenets of the Catholic faith (but does not believe in them) he should be considered for an appointment as the next president of Notre Dame or even as the next Pope.

          • Chris

            “Typical liberal teacher, free of any values except leftist ones.”

            Actually I consider the left/right dichotomy dead. I am a pragmatist. I go with what works. Hiring people because they’re good at their job works. Hiring people because they have the correct views does not. It’s that simple.

            “Following your logic, if a Buddhist or Muslim is a good manager and
            knows the tenets of the Catholic faith (but does not believe in them) he
            should be considered for an appointment as the next president of Notre
            Dame or even as the next Pope.”

            I don’t know what the requisites of a president of Notre Dame are. Assuming they are like those of any other university – why not?

            As to a Buddhist or Moslem becoming pope I don’t see a problem with it but the current requirement is first be born a male and second be a catholic. Why? You’d have to ask the Catholic hierarchy.

          • Michex

            I am glad you unmasked yourself.

          • Chris

            So by saying I’m a pragmatist and don’t believe in left or right I’ve unmasked myself as a leftie? How does that work?

          • Michex

            You are in outer space with statements such as this: “As to a Buddhist or Moslem becoming pope I don’t see a problem with it …”.

          • Chris

            One pope was a satanist. Or at least he offered a toast to the Devil during his first mass when pope. So if the college of cardinals can elect a satanist then they shouldn’t have any problem electing a Buddhist or Muslim.

          • RWH

            I highly doubt this. The Catholic Church cleaned up its act at the Council of Trent. During the Medieval Age, rich families had a huge amount of control over who became a bishop, a Cardinal or the Pope. The Second Vatican Council made the Church more civil. Instead of being rank heretics, non-Catholics are now separated bretheran. The Catholic Church is amazingly careful about theological training, so I doubt whether a pious Buddhist or Moslem would get so far as even ordination. Nobody outside of the College of Cardinals has any chance of being Pope.

          • Chris

            “I highly doubt this. The Catholic Church cleaned up its act at the
            Council of Trent.”

            This was long before the council of Trent which occurred between 1545 and 1563

            “During the Medieval Age, rich families had a huge amount of control over who became a bishop, a Cardinal or the Pope.”

            Indeed they did. During the Renaissance the papacy was a gift of Morrotzia [a Pope’s mistress and another mother]. Many of the Popes during that era bought the papacy.

            “The Second Vatican Council made the Church more civil.”

            The second Vatican council was held between 1962-65. Once again these things were occurring long before it had met.

            “Instead of being rank heretics, non-Catholics are now separated bretheran. The Catholic Church is amazingly careful about theological training, so I doubt
            whether a pious Buddhist or Moslem would get so far as even ordination.”

            Theoretically you wouldn’t need to be ordained. Theoretically a layman can be chosen. There is precedence for this. I believe it was in the 8th century. Additionally people can learn Catholic doctrine from places OTHER than a Catholic seminary.

            “Nobody outside of the College of Cardinals has any chance of being Pope.”

            I agree. Which is why I wrote that it was practically unlikely. There’s no doctrine which says the next pope has to be a cardinal but that’s the way it’s been for hundreds of years.

          • rocky2

            You really are a total joke…or ready to be sent to an insane asylum. You would probably marry a Muslim so that they would treat you like a slave woman, kill your friends, etc. etc. Right? Get some common sense, ok? Otherwise you remain a jerk!

          • Chris

            Why would they treat a guy like a slave woman? Additionally you use logical fallacies, insults, and consider standing up for a principle is being perverted AND consider yourself a Christian? It seems standing up for Christianity is more important than actually practicing it.

          • rocky2

            You are totally delusional, sir. People teach what they believe. Don’t say you didn’t work your false Satanic religion into your teaching or you are a bold faced liar.

          • Chris

            “You are totally delusional, sir. People teach what they believe.”

            Garbage. I am a Zoroastrian. I’ve taught for twenty years and I’ve NEVER taught a single lesson on Zoroastrianism. You teach according to the curriculum. If the curriculum says today you teach the second world war then that’s what you teach.

            It would seem you know nothing about teaching. Thank you for the range of insults you’ve given me but I think I’ll put you on block from now on. Bye.

          • Loring Loding

            I had a discussion with a man I worked with more than 30 years ago. I was appalled that a homosexual teacher had been hired. My liberal friend said it didn’t matter because he most likely wouldn’t share his views with the class. Here we are decades later and you get in trouble for saying that the gay lifestyle is wrong! The bottom line is, if you let sin in the door of a Christian school. It will grow until the school no longer serves the cause of Christ.

          • Chris

            First I have no trouble with homosexuals or homosexuality. Second what happens in society has NOTHING to do with a gay teacher in a school. You observation is a non-sequitur.

          • Michex

            Would you be Ok with a judge legalizing polygamous marriage just as the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage?

          • Chris

            Yes with a proviso. There are legal difficulties associated with polygamy. For example what if the relationship breaks up how is the property divided? Let’s say the relationship is composed of two women and one guy. Then one woman wants out. Does the other woman have visitation rights with any children she helped raise but is not the birth mother? These and many other problems create a legal minefield. If they are solved then fine. If not, then I would rather withhold judgement.

          • Michex

            It all shows how you think.
            Disrespectful of established culture. And you think that judges should be able to change it if it suits their personal agenda.
            Keep talking.

          • Chris

            “It all shows how you think.”

            Well admittedly everyone’s reply indicates how they think. For example when you can’t answer someone’s point you disparage them. As though your inability to answer their point is their fault.

            “Disrespectful of established culture.”

            I haven’t shown any such disrespect. But then this is all just to avoid my points isn’t it?

            “And you think that judges should be able to change it if it suits their personal agenda.”

            I haven’t mentioned ANYTHING to do with judges. In fact judges – at least in the UK, the US, Australia, and New Zealand must base their decisions upon precedent. But then you didn’t ask me about judges you asked if I would support polygamous relationships.

            Why do you keep bringing in these red herrings? Are my points so difficult for you to answer? Here’s a hint: Just say something like “I’ve never considered that before”. It doesn’t mean that you agree with me merely that I’ve brought up a point you’ll have to think about.

            See how easy that is? No red herrings. No dismissive remarks. No misleading statements.

          • Michex

            I asked you this:
            “Would you be Ok with a JUDGE legalizing polygamous marriage just as the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage?”

            As you know, a few years ago the US Supreme Court said 5-4 that the 14th Amendment passed in 1868 meant that lawmakers could not ban same sex marriage — indeed, must allow it.
            You approve of that?

          • Chris

            What you originally wrote “Would you be Ok with legalizing polygamous marriage”

            What you changed it too “Would you be Ok with a JUDGE legalizing polygamous marriage just as the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage?”

            “As you know, a few years ago the US Supreme Court said 5-4 that the 14th Amendment passed in 1868 meant that lawmakers could not ban same sex marriage — indeed, must allow it. You approve of that?”

            Since the judges are interpreting the law – in this case the constitution – which is their role yes I approve. That’s their job and they did it. You want to change the ruling? Then change the constitution.

          • Michex

            The 5-4 SCOTUS ruling on same sex marriage was complete BS – a fig leaf of legal cover. It was based on “equality” and the 14th Amendment. When the latter was passed, same sex marriage was illegal and thus it can’t be used to legalize it.

            Thus, courts can now legalize polygamy based on 14th amendment “equality” – love, equal rights, sexual preferences etc. It’s obvious.

            Now we know exactly how you think. I love it when liberals expose their extreme views in public.
            Homosexual groups publicly claim, for example, that they do not favor polygamy, but we know they’re lying because when one questions leftists and homosexuals on the web, as many of us have, the vast majority say – like you have – that they are basically ok with polygamy.
            Thanks again for confirming your “anything goes” attitude toward sexual norms, culture, and the law. Very useful.

          • Chris

            “The 5-4 SCOTUS ruling on same sex marriage was complete BS – a fig
            leaf of legal cover. It was based on “equality” and the 14th Amendment.”

            Yes I know that’s your opinion but that isn’t that of the Supreme Court.

            “When the latter was passed, same sex marriage was illegal and thus it
            can’t be used to legalize it.”

            Irrelevant. Each law can only be interpreted by humans alive NOW. Additionally it can be argued that some principles of law were unable to be fully understood due to prejudice of the day. In the end however the Judges rules on the principle of equality before the law. What you seem to be suggesting is that a minority isn’t equal. Are you arguing this? Because that’s out and out bigotry.

            “Thus, courts can now legalize polygamy based on 14th amendment “equality” – love, equal rights, sexual preferences etc. It’s obvious.”

            Not even close. Equality before the law does NOT apply to polygamy. Who is already able to form polygamous unions? If one group could but the others could not then you might have a point. Until then you don’t.

            The rest is you claiming you can read people’s minds. Good grief.

          • Chris

            “Now we know exactly how you think. I love it when liberals expose their extreme views in public”

            Yet I’ve already said that I favour Rossian deontology NOT anything goes ethics. However since you’ve told two lies in this very post it would seem you do. Now since lying seems to be acceptable to you I’ll end this discussion.

            Ask yourself a question after I’ve ended the discussion. How many lies did Jesus tell?

          • Chris

            Now perhaps you’ll answer my question. What has polygamy got to do with homosexuality?

          • Chris

            “The bottom line is, if you let sin in the door of a Christian school. It
            will grow until the school no longer serves the cause of Christ.”

            This seems to be implying that ‘sin’ is so much stronger than God. It is? Perhaps you are worshiping the wrong God.

      Wouldn’t LGBT need God More ? And you are just a so-called, Christians. Judge me not for my Sins. It is not your place But the Lord’s. How does the M to F Transgender?
      Like the normal male embryo, the Male to female Transgender brain it starts out
      female Then between the 8th and the 24th weeks, the “XY” chromosomes introduce
      testosterone hormonal changes, BUT hormonal washes as faulty. They are either
      insufficient or ill timed. When this happens, the fetus develops a male body.
      However, some of the default (original) female brain processes to remain intact.
      Thus, the brain’s gender Identity remain intact. Thus,the brain gender Identity
      remains Female. This means that Transgender males whose process of a
      masculinization was incomplete, their default female brains still function.
      The degree of arrested development can very. The original brain circuitry that
      was missed in the Masculinizing process provides a continuing Feminine influence.
      this explains why many transgender, biological males know. from as early as the
      age of 3 years old that they are actually members of the opposite gender.
      You are born with this unlike Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual). Though they too have some of the same traits.
      Gender is not sexuality but, it may effect it.*This may help F to M trans people too..

        Yes, I understand and am sympathetic.
        But these things, if they are true, take time.
        They should not be shoved down the throats of Christians and society as a whole.
        LGBTQ leaders have now forced some very controversial LGBTQ material into even pre-school curricula.
        That’s one of just hundreds of examples.
        The radicalism of LGBTQ leaders is just too much.

  • Hugh1

    Isn’t it time to move beyond the intellectually bankrupt charade that gay people chose their orientation and that they are less moral than their straight counterparts? Denying gays employment is morally reprehensible, but denying a person employment for beleiving discrimination is wrong is just plain weird. Employing Christ’s name to enforce anti-gay discrimination is weirder still.

    • No, it’s not such a time. But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
      What is weird is to claim his name and deny his words, which are anti-gay. Fire has not rained from heaven on cities of thieves and adulterers and blasphemers, but it has on Sodom.

        Sexual deviancy is pure opinion on your part

        • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          So is murder, child abuse, and kidnapping by your logic (or lack thereof).

          • Johndoe

            No comparison with what I posted. Pitiful try though.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            The topic is deviancy. You seem to have forgotten that.

        • Amos Moses

          as is your opinion that it is not ……….

        • Stephen

          Sexual deviancy being male and male or woman and woman is not an opinion. God created people male and female and called them to become one flesh in marriage. His position is clear on homosexuality. And morality is obeying God’s biblical principles of right and wrong. So “Guest” is not expressing their opinion, you are the only one doing that.

          • Johndoe

            Your bible is a 2000+ year old text that has zero impact on what we’re talking about now. Only for you does it have any significance.

          • rocky2

            God’s Word does not change, but man’s word does all the time. Gays once only believed in sex among same gender. As of last week, they are now defending sex with children AND animals of the four-foot variety. I guess birds are too small for them.

          • Stephen

            Well, you’re on a Christian news website either because you sense that there must be a God, and deep inside you really want to find out more about Him. Or, you’re as an enemy of God, whether you realize it or not, and you’re trying to sabotage or compromise the faith of the people here who do believe in Him.

            I hope there is a stirring in your heart that is drawing you to Jesus. If there is, you can be sure He put it there, that He loves you, and that He wants you to embrace the forgiveness of your sins He has provided for you through His shed blood on the cross. Read John chapter 1 and Romans chapter 8. I’ll pray for you!

      Isn’t it time to move beyond the intellectually bankrupt charade that gay people chose their orientation

      What’s intellectually bankrupt about the truth?

      that they are less moral than their straight counterparts

      Also true. The pride parades back that up.

      Employing Christ’s name to enforce anti-gay discrimination is weirder still.

      Stop using Christ’s name as if He condones homosexuality. It’s a behavior, and a sin. Period. To say otherwise is a lie.

      • Hugh1

        We don’t know why people are gay, but we do know that it was not a choice. This discussion, at its core, is about inherent contradictions between observable facts of being – being born gay – and interpretations of scripture that are used to condemn expressions of homosexuality.

        Like racial discrimination before it, discrimination against gays is today rarely tolerated in government or private businesses. Discrimination against gays is increasingly a rarity in the media – that’s why this story has legs. If denying employment to people who fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation is your thing, then you’ll get plenty of attention, just not the type that you want.

        And please stop saying ‘He’ unless you mean to quote Him. Say Matthew, or whomever. It’s annoying.

        • Jason Todd

          You need to drop the assertion homosexuals are born that way. There’s no proof of that whatsoever. As in nine.

          There is however proof of kids becoming homosexuals through recruitment and sexual abuse.

          Oh, and don’t you DARE try to tell me how to talk about MY Lord. Especially when you don’t even know Him!

          • Johndoe

            No proof at all. Gay folks don’t recruit. That’s just religionist talking points.

          • Jason Todd

            Liar. Blocked. Again.

        • rocky2

          Gays were discriminated by God (read His Word). It is a sick perversion of human nature. How many gays do you know that have had a baby on their own? Cased closed.

            Actually Christianity is dying in the western world. Many young people are leaving Christianity because of the very bigotry you’ve displayed. Where’s all this hate the sin but love the sinner stuff? Or does that only apply when it’s someone you like?

            “Where’s all this hate the sin but love the sinner stuff? Or does that only apply when it’s someone you like?”

            I can agree that if you find someone’s views unacceptable then you may need to state this. But you also have to accept that it is a fellow human being holding those unacceptable views.

            There should be loving ways to tell someone that you think such views are wrong.

          • Kathleen Eaton

            Hating the sin & living the sinner does not require that we stop speaking the Truth. It is more likely cingvto speak the truth and possibly hurt people’s feelings than to not speak the truth & “love” them straight to hell.

            While it may seem that Christianity is dying out, that is not actually the case, and those who leave because they get confused under the bigoted attacks if liberal college professors etc, will be back when God draws them & opens their eyes. You mistake a lapse for permanent rejection

          • Chris

            Two things.
            First giving every indication of hatred is NOT loving the sinner.
            Second the young people who have left Christianity didn’t mention anything about any attacks. What they mentioned was 1) Hate-filled attacks against homosexuals [not homosexuality but homosexuals], 2)Creationism [they were sometimes literally asked to choose between their brain and their faith], 3) The arrogance shown by the Church towards anyone not of their group.

            Now you can say they are wrong if you like but something has given them the idea that these things are on display. From what I’ve seen on this very site I’d say they are spot on.

          • Sharon_at_home

            As long as you understand that there are posters here that do follow Jesus as best as we can. We don’t always post when it is easier to read the posts and find out if someone else is posting about the same message.
            Personally, I have never been someone that “hates” any person or people. Each person is an individual and should be treated with respect. (at least until they show that they don’t deserve to be treated with respect.) I have nothing against homosexuals exactly, I just believe that God’s Word is Truth and that I follow His Word. It doesn’t mean I’m going to treat a homosexual any differently than I would a heterosexual. I am not involved with their sin, and if I know them a little, I may (May) say something to them about the sin, but I don’t think I have the right to condemn anyone because God is the one they have to stand before on Judgment Day.
            I have always lived treating people the way I want to be treated and it actually works to the extent that after people are familiar with me, they are happy to see me and enjoy a chat. I’ve always loved to make people smile. But people who are like me, they don’t shout and insist on making it known that they are like me. We are silent about what we do because we feel it is just the right way to behave. A lot of people don’t even know we exist as we follow Jesus’ directions. With the people that we do treat the ‘right way’, we always have the hope that they will want to follow Jesus because of our behaviour.
            Please don’t ever make the mistake of believing that all Christians are like the ones on Comment pages. Some of us aren’t. God Bless!

          • Kathleen Eaton

            What a ridiculous statement. Heterosexuality is not “dying out”. Children are being intentionally taught homosexuality and fluid gender, which sadly results in confusion and leads some to adopt alternative sexuality- that does not equal heterosexuality “dying out” slightly more than 2-3% of humanity is homosexual or bi. That hardly equates to some kind of revolution

          • Johndoe

            I never said they were dying out. I said that heterosexuals and children are both dying from HIV/AIDS.

        • Chris

          Why shouldn’t the ‘world’ believe in a made up Jesus? Christians do. Or at least fundie Christians do. I have seen Christians here quote Jesus to defend their hatred of others, their arrogance, their intolerance of other viewpoints, discrimination against anyone who isn’t THEIR sort of Christian, etc.

      • Kathleen Eaton

        and just fyi.. bigotry is an intolerance of others beliefs. I believe in this case, that makes YOU the bigot. We don’t deny others their beliefs, and we don’t act as though we would rid the world of those who disagree with us (as you clearly do by your statement that “the world no longer requires Christians”) Thankfully, we don’t need to resort to ridding the world of those who hate and disagree with the Biblical God and His ‘views’, He will take care of that Himself. If you choose to ignore Hiim and His Word, you do so at your own peril. I hope you wise up before its too late.

        • Amos Moses

  • David MacKenzie

    Congratulations to this President! I’m sure there are a significant number of more orthodox academics who can fill these roles.

  • RWH

    To clarify, these seven faculty members resigned their positions on the Faculty Senate. They did not resign their jobs. While I don’t know the exact facts of the case, in most every university, the governance puts all academic decisions in the hands of the faculty. The President and the Board have the authority to overturn decisions, but the reason must be good, and it must be shared with the faculty. In this case, the Faculty Senate must have seen this act on the part of the President as an act of retaliation rather than the merits of the faculty members teaching, service, and publishing record. This is serious stuff. The regional accrediting association will be paying attention to this. If the situation escalates, the faculty can take a vote of no-confidence in the President, which is a symbolic act that the faculty want the man fired. Universities are not like other places where the CEO runs the show and the workers silently obey.

    • Hugh1

      Excellent point.

      • RWH

        If the people on this list bothered to google some of the articles about this incident, they would realize that a lot of their comments are off base. For starters, the president of this school doesn’t feel that he needs to abide by the University Governance document. That serves as a contract between faculty and administration and outlines all of the policies. When the seven faculty resigned from the Senate, they got a standing ovation during the subsequent faculty meeting. That bodes very poorly for the President and he and the entire faculty seem to be at an impasse. At this point, the Board really needs to step in. However, people on this list would most likely cheer if the entire faculty resigned their jobs, and they would think that the destruction of a good school is a victory for the Lord. It’s an interesting mindset. I worked for a fundamentalist college that closed a few years ago, primarily due to very poor decisions on the part of the leadership (board and administration), and people were treating this like it was some sort of victory of the faith. In other words, the operation was a success even though the patient died.

        • rocky2

          With your philosophy of education, schools that are liberal, left-wing, and losing their standards should stay open and continue to feel young Christian students false theology and perverted morally. It sounds like you are upset that your school closed because you lost your job…not joyous that you school stood for God and His Word. Are you employed now? If not, it could be because God is trying to teach you that His Word and His Care is more important. Trust Him. I have left places for the right reason, and God always returned more to me than I could have ever imagined. Pray!

          • RWH

            Has it ever crossed your mind that you don’t know what you are talking about? Where did I ever say that I lost a job? Could it be that I got tired of the gross incompetence of little potentates who have no ethical standards and run their institutions with an iron fist because “God put them there” and they are above criticism. I have a very good job now, and I pay more in Federal taxes than I made in an entire academic year at that banana republic called a school. By the way, congratulations for leaving places for all of the right reasons. I’m sure that God loves you more than any of the rest of us. So much for your pompous and arrogant attitude.

            I took his post to be more of a Testimony than a pompous and arrogant attitude. We’re supposed to tell about our experiences with God/Jesus as a testimony that he is alive in our lives.

            Well, it certainly is unfortunate that you missed out on the pompous and arrogant part. Perhaps some basic reading instruction will help you out.

    How shocking that self-declared Christians would favor acceptance and love over bigotry and hate. Clearly their ideals were incompatible with the school’s teachings.

    • Sven

      No one is forcing you to attend that college.
      You seem to be OK with your anti-Christian hate and anti-Christian bigotry.
      Since you hate people who don’t think just like you, that makes you a hypocrite.

      • Chris

        Why is disagreeing with you anti-Christian hate? Are you the voice of Christianity?

          • Chris

            So to disagree with them is to disagree with the whole of Christianity? Is that because ‘true’ Christians all think the same like robots? That they don’t have originals thoughts? That’s what you seem to be suggesting.

          • Chris

            Additionally you do realise you’ve used the no true scotsman fallacy don’t you?

        Typical religionist comment. Disagreement doesn’t equal hate.

    Let the seven never return to any Christian colleges. Let them stay resigned for-ever until they repent and reform of their support of Sodomy. Gordon College should have fired DeWeese-Boyd long time ago. How is Massachusetts going to ban pedophilia and incest and cannibalism? On what basis? The Westerners need to come back to the Holy Bible to be civilized, not just to be Christian.

      You are only a Christian in name only. You can’t pick and choose the Verse in the BIBLE. Jesus said forgive those the trespass against you. The lord’s pray. Gender is not a sin.. I am a Trans-woman. God doesn’t make mistakes. I am also a Christian By John 3:16. Judge me Not, for will be judged for all YOUR SINs as well by God. _______________

      How does the M to F Transgender?
      Like the normal male embryo, the Male to female Transgender brain it starts out
      female Then between the 8th and the 24th weeks, the “XY” chromosomes introduce
      testosterone hormonal changes, BUT hormonal washes as faulty. They are either
      insufficient or ill timed. When this happens, the fetus develops a male body.
      However, some of the default (original) female brain processes to remain intact.
      Thus, the brain’s gender Identity remain intact. Thus,the brain gender Identity
      remains Female. This means that Transgender males whose process of a
      masculinization was incomplete, their default female brains still function.
      The degree of arrested development can very. The original brain circuitry that
      was missed in the Masculinizing process provides a continuing Feminine influence.
      this explains why many transgender, biological males know. from as early as the
      age of 3 years old that they are actually members of the opposite gender.
      You are born with this unlike Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual). Though they too have some of the same traits.
      Gender is not sexuality but, it may effect it.*This may help F to M trans people too..
      This may not be Proof but, it is an logical answer..The Trans info may help you understand

      it is very logical one…

        God created you as man; you should live out as man for lifetime and that’s the only right thing. (Genesis chapter 1 and 2) God prohibited cross-dressing. Deuteronomy 22. True Christians live out the truth, not the falsehood unrepentantly. 1 John 1-5. Western whites are being too well-fed and bored this century on a planet of suffering mankind, and that’s why you guys are forcing normal people to endorse such falsehood( transgenderism) this century. Your Christian ancestors toiled in vain regarding their physical descendants. Easy life made the Western Christendom a despicable Sodom this century. Poor mankind to accommodate the rich Western pervs’ mental illness. Enough of the West’s atrocities on earth. Endorsement of falsehood is a form of slavery.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Birth gender cannot be changed. What you are doing is adomination against the Lord and a mockery against mankind. “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy chaptere 22)

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Attraction to the same-sex members is a sin, too. Matthew chapter 5. No justification for homosexual attraction. It’s as inhumane and disgusting as having attraction to kids and kins. Having peaceful homophobia is a human right. Sodomic Western culture is so wrong this century to norminalize and legalize and promote the sick depravity. Romans 1.

    • Hugh1

      Grace, are you suggesting that being gay is a new variation on original sin? Or that people are not really born gay? It’s not clear. I wonder how Jesus felt on this matter. Perhaps that would clear things up.

      • Jason Todd

        Or that people are not really born gay?

        They never have been.

        I wonder how Jesus felt on this matter.

        Jesus didn’t tolerate sin. That’s why He told the adulteress to “Go and sin no more.”

        • Hugh1

          Who told you that being gay was a choice? Jason, perhaps you should talk to a gay person and actually listen for a change.

          • Jason Todd

            Because it is a choice. If it wasn’t, books like, “So You Want To Be A Lesbian” wouldn’t exist, and women wouldn’t be telling Hollywood celebrities they were the reason they became a lesbian.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Yes, we must keep battling. They already started saying that the pedophiles are born that way. Endorsement of homosexuality means sex with anything. Unacceptable. No Bible = No morality or sanity or civility.

          • Johndoe

            Your statement is void of any logic.

          • Hugh1

            Nerer heard that.

          • Kathleen Eaton

            If you feel you were born with it, it is possible you had feelings you could not explain for reasons you are unaware of. These feelings can be induced by demons, or by people stirring things up physically. It could have happened as an infant and you were just too young to remember. I don’t know what caused it for you but it is not genetic, and it is not hard wired into you. Recent findings show that orientation is fluid, it can change, it is not coded and set for life.

            The lust is simply a feeling. The attraction too, can be manipulated and I believe many cases like this were initiated by molestation back when the person was too young to remember, or being around people who were engaged in this kind of behavior. Some us from people experimenting when they were young. But there ARE spirits that hang around and provoke thoughts and feelings like these. Just reading a book describing explicit graphic sex, even if you are hetero, and the sex is between same sex partners, it can stir up feelings because it is just lust. Experiencing those feelings does not make a person homosexual or bi. Experiencing excitement when stirred by someone of the same sex can make you think you are “gay,” but that is not truly the case. It is lust. Period. Lust can be stirred in various ways, and is not dependent upon whether the other person is male or female. It doesn’t make a person homosexual or bi just because they got stirred up. I don’t know your particular case, but one thing initiated those feelings whether a person or a spirit, but that doesn’t make you “gay”, it just means you were provoked somehow in that direction.

            Having feelings or attraction does not mean you are destined to act on it. Sadly this society makes people think they should. Thank God society still stands against pedophelia! Pedophiles have “feelings” that they then act on, and I am sure they think THEY were “born that way” too. It is an unlawful (according to God) lust, and should be rejected and the person experiencing these feelings should cry out to God to be freed from those feelings. Experiencing feelings does not equal a coded & set for life “orientation”. It is a TEMPTATION that should be resisted. But in a society where people are encouraged to think it’s fine, even “normal”, many do give in to those feelings, and then they desire it even more, because when sin is yielded to, we become its slave. But God came, JESUS came, to set the captives (slaves) FREE! And He WILL set you free if you agree with Him about your sins, that they are wrong, and that you want to be freed from them, if you believe Jesus and ask God to forgive you, cleanse you, make you His child, free you from those sins that have power over you, and help you to lose be His way. Pour your heart out to God about this! Talk to HIM and be willing to humble your heart and accept His Love, be willing to be changed by Him to be what He created you to be! He has SO much for those who truly love Him, and Eternal Life of love , joy & contentment! God has prepared great things for us! Don’t let temporary pleasures in this life steal that from you! He has pleasures for you in this life and for eternity if you will let Him help you & change your heart & life. This does NOT mean a pain free life now, but when He comes for us, the pain will fade like a bad dream. God LOVES you, too much to leave you in this mess. He wants what is BEST for you! Will you trust Him?

            God CAN & wants to deliver you from this. It is NOT your identity. And if for whatever reason you feel you are “stuck” this way, it’s not true! God CAN, and DOES set people free from wrong lusts if they really want Him to save them from their sins and to live His way. Again, if you haven’t watched the video, please do! You will be very surprised at what happened to this man. I have heard countless true stories of others – all different in their circumstances, but all being set free through Jesus Christ.

            * and if for some reason this is not actually about you, but someone you know, I hope you will pass this on to them. Everyone who has homosexual or bi attractions should read this. I do think it’s about you, but I realize I could be wrong. You and all who are in this situation are in my prayers

          • Michex

            Lots of homosexuals say that it is a “choice” while others say that they were molested or underwent other trauma which led to their acting out homosexually. There are hundreds of homosexual websites and testimonials that say this.
            It never fails to amaze me how uninformed some homosexuals are about homosexuality.

          • Hugh1

            No. No gay person claims this nor do any professional organizations claim that when people are molested that they turn gay. I did hear of a politician making the claim that prisons turn you, that was Ben Carson.

      • Stephen

        Since all Scripture is inspired of Jesus, 2 Tim 3:16, you can read for example Rom 1:26-27 to find out His position on homosexuality. If you really care to do it, you can also research many other passages of Scripture concerning the Lord’s position on it as well.

        • Hugh1

          You just made a nothing sandwich. It’s interesting how we pick and choose which writings were inspired by Jesus.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Read everything in the Holy Bible. Your social club is the one who picks and chooses. God condemns homosexuality.

          • Kathleen Eaton

            The entire bible in every place where God is speaking, it is Jesus speaking. He is the living word (logos: intelligence) of God

            So Jesus was the one who ordered the murder of little children in the Hebrew testament? Interesting.

          • rocky2

            Stephen clearly stated that ALL Scripture is inspired by God. Can’t you read his post or are you some liberal/left-wing gay?

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Read Genesis chapter 18-19, Leviticus chapter 18-20, and Romans chapter 1 and Jude chapter 1 to find how Jesus sees this matter. I think the Western people have viewed naked bodies too much and that’s part of the reasons they support homosexuality on everyone this century. Other supporters are mimickers.

        • Woody

          I think you will find that most Western people do not approve of homosexuality and, as a result, do NOT force supporting of homosexuality on anyone. That particular act is only supported by liberals who will, eventually, pay for their actions.

            “I think you will find that most Western people do not approve of
            homosexuality…”

            Not supported by ANY study in recent years. Ireland, for example, recognised same sex marriage by vote.

            “…and, as a result, do NOT force supporting of homosexuality
            on anyone.”

            No one is suggesting anything like that. How would that even work? Would you have armed guards at induction centers?

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            You are right, but it is also a reality that too many Western white people equate the sexually immoral with the colored and rant equality and allow legalization of the suppression by Sodomy in the Western nations and their servant nations. Such culture is a Sodomic tyranny and a racism and it must get abolished. Skin colors/birth genders/disability/household serious religions and willful sexual sins are entirely two different things. They must be differenciated. Western whites and their mental servants should group homosexuality and transgenderism together with prostitution, pedophilia, incest and cannibalism, not with the colored races. People have rights to the truth and morality.

      • Kathleen Eaton

        Actually people are not “born gay”. There is no scientific data to support this. It is not genetic and actually recent findings show orientation to be Fluid. not static

        The scriptures also make clear how GOD feels about this matter, and Jesus IS God. HE is the Word of God who spoke to the prophets and apostles. So if you want to know how Jesus felt about it, you only need to read the scriptures

        Homosexuality is misplaced lust. It is also confusion, and God calls it “abomination”(idolatry & filth) when you give in to lust (or any sin), it gains power over you. God is able to set people free from this and has many times. Did you watch the video? There are MANY such testimonies in YouTube.

        Man knows in his conscience that homosexuality is wrong. It is aberrant behavior and clearly based on how reproduction works for humans, we need both male and female to join intimately. If heterosexuality died out, the human race too would die out (short of creating babies in labs and surgically somehow giving men wombs to carry and deliver them. ) God created male & female & put seed “after our kind” inside of us. Males have to fertilize that seed in order to create offspring, but the seed is in the woman, not in other men. That’s basic biology. That itself shows what God had in mind. If that’s not enough, the scriptures are also clear that males are not to lie with other males as a male “lies with” a female. He wasn’t talking about taking naps. You seek to justify homosexuality because you have feelings (or someone you know does) that have taken over as they were yielded to. God can set you(or the person you know) free from that. I really think you should watch the video, and then maybe have a heart to heart with God. If you are willing for Him to change you, He is more than willing to. But if you love your sin more than your own soul, and more than God, eventually you will lose it, and God will turn away.

        I hope & pray you make the right decisions. Take care

        • Chris

          “If you feel you were born with it, it is possible you had feelings you
          could not explain for reasons you are unaware of. These feelings can be induced by demons, or by people stirring things up physically. It could have happened as an infant and you were just too young to remember”

          All of which would mean that it isn’t a choice and therefore NOT a sin on the homosexual’s part.

          “I don’t know what caused it for you but it is not genetic, and it is not
          hard wired into you”

          Two points:

          1) From yale scientific we find this quote “Recent research has found that homosexual behavior in animals may be much more common than previously thought.”

          If it is common animal behaviour then the odds that there is a physical link are rather high. Now if you’re like most fundies you’ll introduce a dodge and change the subject from being hard-wired to morality. Will you? Or will you accept the findings of science?

          2) Many of the anti-homosexual organizations are mere expressions of quackery. For instance organizations which claim to ‘cure’ homosexuality have admitted they merely alter behaviour. In other words their ‘patients’ are still gay or lesbian’. Which explains why so many leaders of said organizations have come out as gay.

  • Kathleen Eaton

    seems to me if that teacher violated the principles of the college, they ought to have been fired, nevermind promoting them. If the senate faculty resigned because they failed to understand why this person was not promoted, perhaps they are better off replaced as well! It is a sad state indeed when Christians do not act as though they actually believe the bible, and act as though worldly values should prevail.

    • getstryker

      My thoughts exactly . . . They all know the Christian precepts that this college operated under . . . for them, en masse, to support “a vocal opponent of the college’s policy on homosexuality, and (who) has organized training sessions and events surrounding homosexual rights.” belies their own commitment to Christian precepts. Whatever their claims of ‘being Christian’ – each individual should be released and ‘real’ Christian faculty be hired to replace them – NOW!

    Bravo to the 7 members for standing on the Biblical principle, which was EQUALLY restrictive for ALL students regarding sexual relationships outside the covenant bond of marriage between a man and a woman. That the college’s president was wavering on this and considering promoting a professor at odds with that belief causes me to wonder where he, and the future of that college, are. Such views have NO place at a Christian college.

    Let the liberal, God-hating liberals go. No loss to Gordon, in fact, a cleansing of that type of swine is healthy. Christian colleges need to “man up” on biblical principals. Thanks to Gordon, they did. Let the scumbag fag loving staff leave and let the door slam on them as they do. Parents pay tuition for a “Christian” education, not a queer degenerate-based one.

If she had problems with the school’s rules on sexual behavior, she should have resigned. If homosexuality is so important to her, let her find a school that goes along with it. The rules say no sexual activity at all, normal or homosexual, period. What is she fighting for?

    Just more evidence of the intensifying struggle of the last days and the apostasy that has infiltrated the church and its institutions. Similar to a case in Moncton, New Brunswick when a faculty member at Crandall University (formerly Atlantic Baptist University), Cathy Rogers, also employed in a similar role to that of Margaret Deweese-Boyd, resigned to run as a candidate for the Provincial Liberal Party whose leader, our current Premier Brian Gallant, demanded that all those running for elected office in the government would be pro-choice. She obviously subscribed to that and was subsequently elected to the legislature in Fredericton where she now holds an important cabinet portfolio being that of Finance. If the President and staff of Crandall knew of her convictions regarding abortion, then she should have been fired from her position. If she covered it up, knowing that she was employed by a evangelical institution whose anti-aborton stand should have been well publicized, then rightfully she should be labelled a hypocrite. Is there no shame, no guilt, no repentance these days? We thank God for all those who stand firm in their Biblical convictions even in the face of overwhelming opposition and persecution.

    “Standing on the promises that cannot fail,

    when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

    by the living Word of God I shall prevail,

    standing on the promises of God.”

    The Bible states that Homosexuality is not condoned by God. I am very much offended by all the fuss about these sorry people. During a visit to Russia, I was pleased to find Russian law protects their children from homosexuals preying on them. Of course, the mainstream liberal media turned the facts around during the Olympics in Sochi, but America could avoid so much heartache and crime by legally protecting our children as well.
