A lawsuit has been filed against Eastern Michigan University after school officials dismissed student Julea Ward from the school’s counseling program for not affirming homosexual behavior as morally acceptable.
"Christian students shouldn’t be penalized for holding to their beliefs," said ADF Senior Counsel David French. "When a public university has a prerequisite of affirming homosexual behavior as morally good in order to obtain a degree, the school is stepping over the legal line.
EMU requires students in its program to affirm or validate homosexual behaviour within the context of a counseling relationship and prohibits students from advising clients that they can change their homosexual behavior.
What type of a university is this? Same sex attraction is a disorder and there are many people who need help in being cured of it or at least given strategies to lead a healthy life free from homosexual behaviours.
As a councilor, it would be important to try and help these people. Telling them that homosexual behaviour is something good only makes their problems worse. Julea Ward has done the right thing in refusing to affirm homosexual behaviour as good when it is not. Julea has a moral obligation to inform them of the dangers of homosexual behaviour.
