College staff is forced to speak against gay marriages and abortions

WEST HOLLYWOOD, UNITED STATES: A wedding cake featuring two grooms and two brides is on display at a local restaurant as part of the preparations for a mass gay wedding in West Hollywood, CA 01 June 2004. Some one hundred gay and lesbian couples tied nots in a ceremony performed by West Hollywood Mayor John Duran. Although simbolic, the ceremony was organized as part of a campaign organized by Duran and other non profit organizations in an effort to change California laws and allow same sex couples to get marriage licenses.

A Christian college in North Carolina has been caught asking staff and faculty to sign a document which would confirm that they oppose same-sex marriages and abortions. The private Montreat College expects its staff to sign up to support a marriage as a unity of a man and a woman as well as worthy of every human being from conception to death. But even more frighteningly, some staff have said they have left because they are expected to uphold a “full 24 hour/seven-day-a-week persona life” involving the college’s stance. One, Corrie Greene who teaches English at the school has said she and eight other members are not going to work there anymore. According to Adam Caress, the school has spent years “reviewing and revising” the documents. He says the process to review the documents has been “transparent and deliberative” and included 13 “listening sessions”. The school apparently gave a chance for input to its 39 full time faculty members and 142 adjunct aculty members. Described as the “core documents” Greene adds: “It says we must affirm and uphold the college’s specific spiritual stances in our full 24 hour/seven-day-a-week personal life.
