ICC Note

“She’s being told, ‘You must change your beliefs or we’ll deny you a degree’

07/23/2010 United States (The Christian Institute)-A Christian student in the US has been told she will not be permitted to graduate unless she changes her beliefs.

Jennifer Keeton, 24, is studying for a degree in counseling at Augusta State University in Georgia .

But University chiefs say her beliefs about sexual ethics do not conform to the prevailing views of the counseling profession, and she must change or get out.

Re-education

She has been ordered to undergo a re-education plan involving “remediation” assignments and “diversity sensitivity training”.

She must report back on how the re-education has influenced her beliefs. If she refuses, she has been told she faces being thrown off her degree course.

She has also been urged to attend a homosexual parade in Augusta .

Aid

American pro-freedom group, the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), has come to the student’s aid.

Change

“She’s being told, ‘You must change your beliefs or we’ll deny you a degree’”, he continued.

Expulsion

According to ADF, the 24-year-old’s threatened expulsion is part of a trend among universities to apply “religious and ideological litmus tests” in university departments teaching “education, counselling, and social work”.
