    From the article it appears her Chrisitan Bible-based approach to counseling would exclude Jews, too, or any non-Chrisitans. And as wryly noted in the comments afterwards, she wouldn't be able to counsel women, either, since her fundamentalist beliefs about the inferior position of women would likewise hinder her ability to follow objective and unbiased counseling practices with them.

    It appears homosexuality may be just the tip of her iceberg, the rallying cry of convenience to win her more passionate support. But her real issue is using Bible teachings as a foundation for her future counseling career, and the college is correct to reject that unprofessional approach. I swear these right-wingers are doing everything they can to turn the US into a Christian theocracy.

    She wants to be a school counsellor?!

    Other than some poor confused 16 year old gay kid being told they're evil and going to hell by this bint what happens when the head cheerleader comes to her wanting an abortion because she's been knocked up by the married football coach?

    This bitch'll go crazy and burn the whole sinful place down.icon_twisted.gif

    I am a counselor. She should give up mainstream counseling and go be a counselor at a church. There are certain requirements to be a counselor. No one is asking her to change her beliefs, but she must also be tolerant of others if she can help them. If you hate someone, you surely cannot counsel them.

    This story will follow her for the rest of her career - if she has one. I can guarantee she will not practice.

    People like Ms. Keeton are really at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder.

    There is a good reason why they want her to go to these courses in order to learn diversety(hope i spelled that correct). If she is so unwilling to understand the other side then she got nothing to do as consuleur. Maybe in Church but thats it. I would suggest to her to search for other jobs emediatly, because this wont go away. I dont know if there are strictly religous Schools in America where she could have a chance.

    I am pretty sure her opinions were very strong, not just against gays. Otherwise the School would have never reacted this way.

    She is an ugly person with an ugly soul and can only counsel people to hate. That is her calling.

    In the art field, you have reviews that you go through when earning a degree. If the school has a reputation for putting out only the best artists, and they don't feel you're up to par, they can tell you to pick another major based only that they don't want to develop a bad reputation of their school churning out artists that produce bad art.

    I would imagine it could work the same for any other department. Including schools that don't want to produce a counselor who's gonna get sued a month out for violating a students choice (or right or whatever) to be gay, by forcing their religion onto them.

    different strokes for different folks. She doesn't have to accept gays if she doesn't want to, and I don't think anyone would hire her as a counselor. Personalities like that are typically transparent enough

    I predict she'll go on the right-wing lecture circuit and then become a commentator on Fox News.

    Of course they can't let that stupid cunt pass in good conscience knowing the amount of psycological damage she would inflict on some poor student she's supposed to be "mentoring". This reminds me of a girl I knew in high school. She was last years Miss Teen USA and was defending that dumb bitch from California for going off about how being gay was immoral "before her naked pictures and sex tape came out". These self righteous hypocrites need to be put in there place. Excuse my french.. this shit pisses me off.

    She's right about one thing: she can't change her beliefs. Beliefs that are not based in reality and are impervious to evidence can't be changed. She's right because the B-I-B-L-E says so. Period. Like someone in the comments to that article said, she should seek to be a Christian counselor at a church, where people are accepted in for what they believe and churned out for what they know.

    Substitute Black People (or brown or yellow ones) for gays...the Bible did that too....and she'd be a racist.

    I'm not too sure about her future career. There will always be many faith based charities getting federal tax breaks that will hire her.

    Carrie Prejean in all her hatred did get her hunk...and isn't that what all beauty pageant winners are after?????

    we have a long way to go...Never stay home in an election..Never stay quiet around homophobes...

    She's likely not intelligent enough for something like that to be sustainable. I predict she will be good for a few sound bites, maybe exploitable for a political point or two.. but she'll fade away rather quickly, marry some idiot who'll knock her up and keep her quiet, which is probably for the best anyway.

    Some time ago there was a similar case involving a hardcore fundamentalist christian whose application a top-notch masters program was rejected because he dismissed the scientific validity of Darwinism and the theory of evolution. (His undergraduate program taught exclusively 'intelligent design'.) His case against the masters program was laughed out of court as I expect this young lady's will be.

    Not especially for the era. Consider the Roman Catholics of the same period with their Inquisition.

    Rather, they got caught in the religious conflicts between the different Christian sects. People were being hanged or burned for choosing the "wrong" interpretation of the Bible. Therefore many of the Pilgrims saw the American colonies as an opportunity to escape and create their own little world without interference, the "Shining City on a Hill." They came here because of their persecuted religious beliefs (and for others, too), but those were not much stronger than anyone else's.

    But of course those who want religious freedom for themselves seldom want it for others. After all, believing your religion to be right & true means everyone else has to be wrong & false. Intolerance was common in the early settlements, as it always is when a strong sense of righteousness prevails, even to this day.

    Fortunately the Colonies were a big place back then, and the different groups coming here managed to stay out of each other's way. The concept of true religious freedom began to take hold as a tacit agreement among them to not recreate the religious wars back in Europe.

    Furthermore, the Colonies were just that: the property of powers back in Europe, meant to make profit. Internal conflicts hurt profit, and their land grants & charters could be withdrawn, leaving the Colonists essentially unemployed & homeless. And given that the Colonies only had small militias rather than great armies, that were kept busy dealing with the Native Indians, no such religious wars ever developed on this continent.

    Today I'm not so sure. What's different now is the rise of Christian Fundamentalism, that senses an opportunity to take over the government, and install the single state religion that the Founders of the US feared. Those in the 18th-Century also knew well about religious wars, of one state religion against another, and they understood the potential for competing religious interests among the Colonies. Indeed, it had as much to do with getting all the Colonial delegates to agree to form a unified government that gave us a secular system, more than esoteric philosophical principles.

    So they instituted separation of Church & State to avoid that possibility. And today the Christian fundamentalists want to tear that down, with the help of the Republican Party that made a Devil's Pact with them in exchange for political power. The Republicans spread the fundamentalist agenda in return for votes. Except I wonder if they'll be devoured by their own Frankenstein monster, when the fundamentalists conclude they no longer need the Republicans to attain their goals.
