I’d like to say that it ‘isn’t easy being me.” But actually it is. The campus left keeps handing me more material to write about in my weekly column. The endless supply of column-worthy madness is fueled by the endless degree of hypocrisy in the name of campus diversity. That isn’t surprising because our campus has not just one but five diversity offices. And it really makes you wonder what these people sit around and do all day while the government is going bankrupt by over-spending your money.
In the case of our LGBTQIA Office, the answer is simple: they investigate and then endorse churches based on their stance on homosexuality. And they print lists of approved gay-friendly churches using official university letter-head. Then they circulate their approved church list on state-owned computers to other state employees who then recommend the approved churches to their students.
On August 8, 2011, our LGBTQIA Office circulated its own list of gay-friendly churches. The taxpayer-funded endorsements went out to the following five churches:
1. St. Jude’s Metropolitan Community Church
19 N. 26th Street, Wilmington, NC 28405
This is not a shocker. St. Jude’s is the gayest church in town. What is shocking, however, is that the church is named after St. Jude who specifically condemned homosexuality is his short New Testament epistle. The St. Jude website says “We believe in Christian social action, confronting the injustice of poverty, racism, homophobia, sexism, class-ism and all the ways we separate ourselves from one another.” It is unclear whether their proposed “social action” in opposition to “homophobia” will include trying to kick St. Jude out of the New Testament for uttering hate speech. Hey Jude, don’t make it bad! It’s genetic, remember?
2. Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Wilmington
4313 Lake Avenue
Wilmington, N.C. 28403
The Unitarians seem to believe in pretty much everything. That’s good news for LGBTQIAs who support gay marriage. But I wonder how they feel about welcoming Muslims who support stoning homosexuals. Is that acceptable to the Universalists? I would think so. Most Universalists I know like to get stoned on a fairly regular basis.
3. Church of the Servant
4925 Oriole Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403
