American School With No Gays

Carson-Newman University
Students who want a good education and be spared from the incessant whining from the gay minority can enroll in one of the most prestigious and elite schools in the United States - Carson-Newman University.

The private Southern Baptist college in Tennessee, is now legally allowed to ban students whose "lifestyles" are interpreted as an affront to their Christian philosophy: gay students and others included.

"This is who we are as a Christian university," Dr. Randall O'Brien, president of the university, told CBS affiliate WVLT last 7 December. "These are our religious principles. And in a changing world, we would like to reaffirm that this is who we are and who we intend to be."

O'Brien's legal counsel encouraged him to file the waiver, which exempts the school from allowing students protections usually afforded to them under Title IX. The university's president claimed doing so only "strengthen[s] our First Amendment rights."

These "strengthened" rights include not only the ability to ban gay students, but also unwed mothers, women who've had abortions and even pregnant students, according to WVLT. And Carson-Newman is hardly the only college now able to do so: The university's legal counsel filed similar waivers for many other Christian schools, according to the same report, and 30 others are similarly exempt from Title IX.
