The UGA website claims that ?all English translations (of the Bible) have been deliberately mistranslated to make it appear that God condemned homosexuality.? How many people were involved in that conspiracy? How long did it last? Is it still in effect?
The UGA website claims that the idea that Sodom and Gomorrah ?were destroyed for homosexuality is a man-made notion that is unsupported by scriptures.? Was that a misprint or is the author of that statement actually serious?
The UGA website claims that ?The Greek New Testament, while not condemning homosexuality, does forbid people to attempt to alter their sexual orientation.? Could you give me the relevant Bible verse for that assertion?
The UGA website claims that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality ?as a sexual orientation.? Does it say anything about bestiality as a sexual orientation? How about pedophilia as a sexual orientation?
Why does the UGA website (quoting the story of the woman caught in adultery) end with the words ?let him (who is without sin) be the first to throw a stone at her?? The reference provided is John 8:3-11. The end of the passage is actually ?From now on sin no more.? Was that an accident or did the university omit that last verse on purpose? Is such a misrepresentation an example of academic freedom? Or is it just liberal propaganda?
The UGA website states that ?Jesus himself never married not (sic) had children. Other parts of the Bible simply can?t be forced into the ?family values? obsession of the Fundamentalists.? Was this meant to mock Fundamentalists? Shouldn?t their sexual orientation be respected, too? Is it nice to call Fundamentalists ?obsessed?? This statement was not implying that Jesus was gay?or was it?
The UGA website states that ?The Book of Ruth sensitively portrays bonding and devotion between two women.? Does that mean that Ruth was a lesbian, too?
I ask you these questions because I would like to get a sense of the university?s official positions on religious matters. Of course, you may point out that no one was coerced into reading these materials, which are highly offensive to most Christians. You might even point out that the expression of these views by university personnel, even on a taxpayer supported website, does not constitute an endorsement of religion by the University of Georgia.
But be careful how you answer these questions, President Adams. I have some more questions about your former cheerleading coach. I look forward to your timely response.
