    Umm, not quite. The Taliban will cut your head off for behaviors they have deemed are wrong. This college is not killing anyone, and is not forcing anyone to do anything against their will. It's a term of employment, and anyone who doesn't want to work for them, certainly is free not to.

    Yes, because the Taliban is just like that. *eyeroll*

    I assumed most, if not all, private Christian schools had something like this in their contracts for unemployment and in the rules for students to follow. Not a big deal, really. If you don't like it, don't work or go to school there.

    No, it isn't a slippery slope. There's a reason we have separation of church and state.

    These are pretty standard at least at the high school and lower levels. Don't know about college level. Sounds like some kind of gay-marriage agitprop piece IMO.

    State legislature in Virginia voted NOT to let a prosecutor become a judge, for the simple reason that he is gay.

    It is indeed a slippery slope. The more homophobia becomes acceptable, the more gays will be discriminated against.

    If that's how it's interpreted - near campus - then I would agree it's not a big deal. I suspect the intent was to ban only drinking near campus, everything else everywhere.

    For some reason I don't think you'd harbor such concern for this judge if he believed abortion to be akin to murder and he was voted out by the KKK's political party of choice.
