Why is this news? Everyone clear now? If you choose to attend a university that says you can’t be a homosexual, and you’re a homosexual, what do you think will happen? You’ve got only one guess.
The university makes sure everyone knows its policy on homosexuals, but apparently they haven’t been as careful with their policy on Christianity.
One of Johnson’s close friends, Jennifer Roberts, a senior from Belfry, said “everybody on campus is extremely upset about this.”
Roberts said Johnson was a person of high character, honesty and trustworthiness who had distinguished himself in several campus activities, especially theater.
“He’s openly gay but doesn’t flaunt it,” she said, then added: “I think you would be floored by the amount [that’s “number,” sweetheart] of gay people at our school.”
“I would consider Jason a Christian because so many of his values are Christian,” she said. “He embodies everything a friend should be. A lot of people are suffering because he is not here.” [Ah yes, the “Christian” “value” of “friendship.” Suffering? It seems Cumberlands students are prone to hyperbole.]
Roberts and Johnson worked together on a student-run television show, Patriot Talk. “I’m producer, he’s director,” she said.
Johnson was stage manager for a recent production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, and was a key person in the theater outreach program. [Outreach to whom? Non-theater students? Heterosexuals?]
Roberts said some students will not be afraid to express their outrage.
“They’re already printing T-shirts that say ‘Jesus loves gay people, too,'” she said.
Well, that’s sweet. Of course He does! What does that have to do with it? He loves all sinners, even the open, non-flaunting type. That doesn’t mean He wants them fornicating with whomever. Just like He doesn’t want heterosexuals jumping into bed with the next person of the opposite sex with working genitalia who happens by. Come on, Baptists! Hell is still hot. Sentimentalism masquerading as love has infected even the fire-breathing Bible thumpers!
