Video: US University tells Christian to change beliefs

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.


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 .


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


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


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”.
