Christian College demands contract on student gender and sexuality...
Citipointe Christian College in Brisbane, QLD, has sent families a contract
(a "Declaration of Faith") last week saying that parents must sign the
contract or unenroll their children from the school.

Principal Pastor Brian Mulheran said the new clauses in the enrollment
contract were included to "ensure that we retain our Christian ethos,
which is the foundation of what has made the College what it is today".

The contract states "the college will only enroll the student on the
basis that their stated gender corresponds to their biological sex",
and that the college "acknowledges the biological sex of a person as
recognised at birth and requires practices consistent with that sex".

Note the pseudo-cross on the pseudo-church steeple.

Another clause states the college has the right to "exclude a student
from the college" should they not adhere to the "doctrinal precepts
including those as to biological sex".

Part of the declaration states that "any form of sexual immorality (including
but not limited to; adultery, fornication, homosexual acts, bisexual acts,
bestiality, incest, paedophilia, and pornography) is sinful and offensive
to God
and is destructive to human relationships and society".

They have any right to be bigoted. I am not interested at all in their excuses as to why they think bigotry is ok.

This should be well publicized so that the entire country knows what despicable bigots the college administrators are.  Dodgy

I take that they have all the girls looking up to their male counterparts whilst learning how to cook sew and look after children.   Facepalm

How lovely. Putting gay people into the same category as paedophiles and goat fuckers.

Makes me sick that these idiots can get away with it in this day and age. Whatever happened to love thy neighbor?

Fear of learning something which might shake their silly "faith" would be high on the list, I imagine.

There's a university here in Oregon called George Fox University.  It's a Christian Quaker college and they're always looking for people to teach the theatre classes but the instuctors and professors all have to sign a paper that they accept Jesus as their savior and homosexuality is a sin and all that shit.  There are a few theatre people I know who are religious but most of them are not and a good portion are gay.   So Geroge Fox university has had a job opening for a theatre director for over a year.    My husband thought about applying but when he read the details he decided against it even though the pay was super good.

Ha!  What do they do about intersex people?  There are people born with ambiguous genitals who don't correspond to either sex so their birth records are also ambiguous.  Sometimes doctors don't know which sex to put down.   

Quote: Intersex people are individuals born with any of several sex characteristics including chromosome patterns, gonads, or genitals that do not fit the typical binary notion of male and female bodies.

And it's not a super rare condition either.  About 1.7% of all live births around the world are intersex to various degrees. Some are minor irregulariteis, others are not.   The 1.7% includes chromosome irregularities such as  women with XXY or other things like that.    So yeah,  I wonder what a Christian college would do with intersex people?

I do admire the subtlety of the Cross on the steeple. I might not have noticed that.

And private colleges have a right to decide who they accept.

But if they get public funding, they have to obey rules about public access free of religious tests. They can't advance religion and receive public money at the same time. If their purpose is to teach relion of any kind, they can't demand others to help pay for it.

Here in Australia, private/religious educational institutions actually receive
more taxpayer funding per student than state-run government schools.

The amounts (2019 data) of federal government funding per student per annum were as follows:

Government schools $3,075,  Catholic schools $9,915,  Independent schools $8,272.

[Source: Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) 2021]

•  Government schools remain by far the lowest funded in Australia,
•  Private schools had 70% more recurrent income to spend per student than government schools,
•  Private schools are spending three and a half times more on capital works than government schools.

Oddly, I had a Quaker friend (he died recently) who was a staunch supporter of gay rights.

Yes.  I have a friend who was raised as a Quaker and is very progressive and liberal in her views.  She's a lovely person and more Christian than most other Christians I know.  George Fox was the founder of the Quaker religion but I think the people who run George Fox University have a control fantasy going on.  I think it's all about power.

To stay inside their own little bubble as long as possible? The real world is, after all, alarmingly secular.

Actually they might have some ground to stand on. A little known fact, Mr. Jesus' "Love everybody" speech actually as an asterisk attached to it. The fine print reads something along the lines of, you don't really have to accept and love others as long as you hate them in my name.

I imagine most of the time, it's because the people have been in Christian schools their whole life, and most likely the parents are super controlling about it. I doubt most people who go to those schools want to be in them, they're just fearful of what happens if they don't go.

I support public education. Where that is not the norm, people grow up with specific religious or political views. Public education that seeks a general view offers broader education.

Christian College demands contract on student gender and sexuality...
The principal of a Brisbane Christian school that issued student enrollment
contracts including gender and sexuality clauses before withdrawing them
has stepped aside.  Brian Mulheran stepped down Wednesday, saying that
he'd decided to “stand aside and take extended leave in order to reflect on
what has transpired and provide the College community time to heal”.

[Image: 3152.jpg?width=620&quality=85&auto=forma...63bd0848c7]

What a fucking liar!   Today Mulheran said,  "As stated previously, the college
does not and will not discriminate against any student because of their
sexuality or gender identity... it is central to our faith that being gay or
transgender in no way diminishes a person’s humanity or dignity in God’s eyes".

The college's contract clearly states that "the college will only enroll the
student
on the basis that their stated gender corresponds to their biological
sex", and that the college "acknowledges the biological sex of a person as
recognised at birth and requires practices consistent with that sex".

The College faced a possible review of its government funding plus
anti-discrimination legal action over the contracts sent to all parents last week
to sign.

—One of the issues in Australia is that our Ant-discrimination Act is a federal act,
and of course our prime minister is a practicing member of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Hillsong Church, whose leader is currently facing
charges of knowingly concealing the paedophile activity of his father.

"Just let it go!" only applies to the miscreants. Anyone who makes an honest mistake will ask forgiveness, and everyone can move on. One of our neighbors vandalized all of our vehicles and goes around the neighborhood talking shit about us. Some people believe her, some don't. She stands there and says, "Just let it go!" when we completely shun her and her family. I feel sorry for the husband and son, tbh. We're seeing the same shit with leading Republicans over any number of issues.

Yeah, it's one thing to forgive, and another to forget. I can forgive someone for wronging me -- even if they don't ask for it and never know how I feel about it -- but having anyone inveigling me to forget what they've done is a nonstarter. It's an entitlement mindset that I reject. If I forget, I'll do it on my own time, thankeemuch. Until then, own your actions.
