According to Christian Today:
Faculty members of a Christian college once attended by Franklin Graham are threatening to resign after they were asked to sign a statement affirming their opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion.
Montreat College, a private Christian arts college in North Carolina, is insisting its staff affirm and live according to the school’s ‘Community Life Covenant’, recently added to staff handbooks.
The covenant affirms ‘the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman’ and the ‘worth of every human being from conception to death’, according to the Citizen-Times.
Montreat’s director of communications, Adam Caress, explained the covenant, which comes out of two years of listening to concerns of students, staff and alumni.
He said in an email: ‘The Community Life Covenant is rooted in core biblical values that have been central to Christianity for 2000 years and central to the college throughout its 101-year history.
