Re: “Harding responds on blocking gay website

I am a Harding alumni, open-minded person, Christian, Democrat, health care provider, and heterosexual. The truth is that everyone knows what they are getting into when they attend Harding University because they sign a contract and receive a copy of the handbook before ever getting started. I resent the fact that homosexuals actually get special treatment compared to heterosexuals at HU. If a heterosexual person is caught having pre-marital sex or is even at the house of a member of the opposite sex, then they are kicked out for a semester. A homosexual person in a similar situation will get sent to counseling and do not lose thousands of dollars and precious time by not completed the semester.

Attending Harding is a privaledge and something that each student chooses to do, therefore if a person does not hold the same beliefs and standards that govern Harding, they don't have to go there. The Harding community is made up of intelligent adults with personal opinions, beliefs and lifestyles, but the expectations are clearly presented before signing a contract to uphold the Biblical principles HU is founded on. I know of many groups on campus other than homesexuals who feel like they can't express themselves without judgement- democrats, anyone other than a member of the Church of Christ, women who would like to take a more active role in church, drinkers and dancers just to name a few. The point is, this is not a new development, nor something everyone doesn't know to expect before signing on the dotted line. Get over it!
