Freedom of Conscience Under Assault

Courts Uphold Expulsion of Counseling | Students Who Won't 'Affirm' Homosexuality

Two recent court rulings upheld the dismissal of Christian students from counseling programs because of their moral objections to homosexuality. Students Julea Ward in Michigan and Jennifer Keeton in Georgia were both expelled from master's in counseling programs after expressing their unwillingness to affirm homosexual behavior when counseling clients....

... Federal Judge George Steeh agreed, rejecting the argument that the school infringed upon Ward's religious freedom and free speech rights. He ruled that the university had a legitimate "curricular goal of teaching students to counsel without imposing their personal values on their clients." He also affirmed the university's right to govern students according to the standards of the ACA Code of Ethics, noting that students will be governed by that association as practicing counselors. (The ACA is committed to affirming homosexual behaviors as normal and natural, even to clients who express a desire to change their sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual...

This is not just a freedom of speech issue... it is much deeper than that... it is a freedom of conscience issue.

This is a dark landmark decision by a federal judge.

It can't end there. this case begs to go to the Supreme Court. This ruling cannot be allowed to stand.
