Shorter University, a private Christian university in Rome, Ga., is reportedly requiring its 200 employees to sign a statement rejecting pre-marital sex, adultery and homosexuality or risk getting fired, Fox News reports. "Our goal is not to offend people," said Don Dowless, the school's president. "Our goal is to declare who we are. I think that anybody who adheres to a lifestyle that is outside of what the Biblical mandate is ... would not be allowed to continue here." The pledge is legally allowed, Dowless says, because the private university receives no federal funding. Some students have spoken out against the pledge, though they are reportedly not being asked to sign it.
