There is a world of difference between drunkeness (which the Bible condemns) and drinking (which the Bible does not condemn, and, in some passages, enjoins).
A distinction apparently lost on their powers that be.
Actually, God puts sexual sin in a category all by itself:
1 Corinthians 6:18, "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body."
Looks like the lecturer in Grammar was the first to go.
The pledge I read does not prohibit a beer with dinner unless there was a University function you were required to attend within 6 hours of drinking that beer or you were inviting students over to have dinner with you.
You can drink your beer at home all you want.
Great, very common but silly pervert talking points. But unpersuasive among healthy, intelligent and informed adults.
Gossips, liars, thieves, the functionally insane are not presently protected classes.
Only a moron would make that argument.
I’ve gone through the Red Cross list of questions before donating blood many times. It never asks, “Have you engaged in office gossip, even once, since 1977?”
Well, no. Some, like murder, sodomy, oppressing the widow and orphan, and depriving the workman of his just wages, "cry out to Heaven for vengeance," and those you mention don't. (Not that they're not bad.)

They basically asked their staff to adhere to the Bible.
Where in the Bible is alcohol use forbidden? Wasn’t Jesus’ first miracle to turn water into wine for a wedding?
Jesus Himself would not be able to sign this pledge.
The way I read it, it would prohibit the use of alcohol in public places. Not sure what I missed.
As far as I can see, no, it is not:
"3. I reject as acceptable all sexual activity not in agreement with the Bible, including, but not limited to, premarital sex, adultery, and homosexuality."
The school is asking employees to profess the principles of Biblical sexual morality, not pledge to be sinless in that regard. No Christian should have a problem with that.
On the other hand, the pledges indicates that the signer promises to not drink in public, presumably in accordance with the school's theology, and as examples for the student body. Strict but not unreasonable given the school's beliefs.
Right, beer drinkers are everywhere, good riddance.........
It is good to see the Southern Baptists maintain their standards.
For decades we have watched as the Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopals, and Lutherans watered down their standards to a point that anything goes. The result for these denominations has been major membership losses. These churches are 1/2 of what they were 50 years ago.
Meanwhile, the Southern Baptists have doubled in size over the past 50 years.
I support what this college has done!!!!!
Or in a public place, which you neglected in your post.
Cannot go to an Italian restaurant and get a glass of red wine to go with your pasta.
I read recently that employers have been asking employees for access to their Facebook page. Personally I won’t have a Facebook page because I do not put my life out there for all to see. Had a boss asked me for my Facebook page And had I had one, I would have told said boss to stick it or if I really needed the money I would have LIED and said I did not have one, right after I eliminated my name and other ID on it.
It is no one’s business what I do in my off time. Individual freedom being the heart of the US Constitution
Being a pragmatist and having to feed my family I might lie to keep a job
long enough to find another job. I feel a sense or responsibility to my employer to do a good job at the task I was hired for. After that all bets are off
50 jobs open at a Christian university!!
My friends went to a college that called that "MISSIONS". Intercultural isn't always a bad thing, there, Vet. :)
