Look, Again, If You Work For A Conservative Evangelical Organization, and You Don’t Hold Conservative Evangelical Views…

06 Oct

You shouldn’t get an attitude or be surprised if they ask you to leave when you violate their principles.  It’s simple- if you don’t like what they believe, leave.

Complaining that you don’t feel their policy is fair is like being a pacifist who joins the Army and then demands that the Army adopt his pacifistic views.

One of the largest evangelical organizations on college campuses nationwide has told its 1,300 staff members they will be fired if they personally support gay marriage or otherwise disagree with its newly detailed positions on sexuality starting on Nov. 11.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA says that it will start a process for “involuntary terminations” for any staffer who comes forward to disagree with its positions on human sexuality, which holds that any sexual activity outside of a husband and wife is immoral.

Staffers are not being required to sign a document agreeing with the group’s position, and supervisors are not proactively asking employees to verbally affirm it. Instead, staffers are being asked to come forward voluntarily if they disagree with the theological position. When they inform their supervisor of their disagreement, a two-week period is triggered, concluding in their last day. InterVarsity has offered to cover outplacement service costs for one month after employment ends to help dismissed staff with their resumes and job search strategies.

There’s much more, which do read.  And again, if you disagree with an organization’s principles, exactly what kind of principles do you have which would allow you to work for them?

    OH, THE HYPOCRISY OF IT ALL!!! Evangelical Conservatives also eat, pay rent, mortgages and buy things. So, they may be Evangelical Conservatives and speak about Evangelical Conservative issues all day long, but if a damned devil who is, naturally a liberal promises to this same outspoken Evangelical Conservative free stuff, like food, housing, schooling, and welfare benefits, this Evangelical Conservative, in the secret of the voting booth will vote for that devil without even blinking his Evangelical Conservative eyes or blushing his Evangelical Conservative cheeks in shame! How does one think that liberals have won so many elections through the last 40, say, 50 years??????
