Shorter University in Rome, Georgia is asking employees to sign a statement declaring they are not gay or face being fired, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.

The private Baptist college's Personal Lifestyle Statement also requires staffers to pledge they won't take part in premarital sex and adultery. Employees must also agree to not drink alcohol in public places where students might be present, including restaurants and sporting events.

“I think that anybody who adheres to a lifestyle that is outside of what the biblical mandate is and of what the board has passed, including the president, would not be allowed to continue here,” Don Dowless, president of Shorter University, told Channel 2 Action News in Atlanta.

Students, who are not required to sign the statement, have begun a protest to stop the policy.

An unnamed gay employee told gay weekly the GA Voice that the requirement has left staffers afraid of witch hunts.

“We now will live in fear that someone who doesn't like us personally or someone who has had a bad day will report that we've been drinking or that we are suspected of being gay,” said the employee.
