Here’s hoping Mike Curb can help curb Belmont’s homophobia and hypocrisy.
Belmont is more than happy to accept tuition money from gay students, heterosexual students who have extramarital sex and students who drink. If Belmont is willing to accept the money of students who sometimes fall short of being perfect angels, why focus so narrowly on homosexuality? And how many Belmont professors have been fired for violating Biblical injunctions against drinking, lying, having extramarital sex or wearing unisex clothing?
Very few American Christians live by every letter of Biblical law, which is a very good thing because the Bible commands all sorts of heinous things: stoning boys to death for being “stubborn,” stoning girls to death for the “crime” of having been raped, etc. If the writers of the Bible were incorrect when they said God commanded infanticide, matricide, slavery, ethnic cleansing and genocide ... who knows? Perhaps they were wrong about God being a homophobe as well.
