Gary Campbell needs just six more credits to get his undergraduate degree, and planned to return to Clarks Summit University, a “Christ-centered” Bible college in Pennsylvania in the fall. But the school learned he is gay, and kicked him out.
Campbell, 35, had attended Clarks Summit in northeastern Pennsylvania from 2001 to 2003, then dropped out, hoping to attend a community college to save money. Along the way he joined the Navy, but was discharged “after he drove drunk on base,” The Citizens’ Voice reports.
“He knew at the time he was gay, but thought by attending the Baptist school, he could change,” the report adds.
“Long story short, it didn’t work out that way,” Campbell says.
He now has $30,000 in student loan debt and is finding that about half of his credits from Clarks Summit, a private, Christian college that says it “embraces its Baptist convictions and propels graduates into careers and service opportunities around the globe,” wouldn’t transfer.
The school says it’s “a fully-accredited, faith-centered university committed to providing students with an education that will allow them to serve Christ in a variety of ministries and careers.”
Unless they’re gay, apparently.
Attorney George Conway reveals two ‘great’ questions — that Trump can’t answer
Prominent Republican attorney and Lincoln Project member George Conway on Monday offered his analysis of how reporters should question President Donald Trump.
Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, made his comments after watching video of Trump refusing to criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Who do you think poisoned Alexei Navalny in Russia?”
“Uh,” Trump replied. “We’ll talk about that at another time.”
Jaime Harrison says ‘I am living rent free in Lindsey Graham’s head’ — and he might be right
Jaime Harrison, the Democrat challenging Sen. Lindsey Graham, on Monday said that his upstart campaign is panicking the incumbent.
Harrison was interviewed on MSNBC by "The Last Word" anchor Lawrence O'Donnell, who noted the most recent polling shows a tied race.
"Have you experienced any extra fund-raising surge over the weekend?" O'Donnell asked.
"Well, Lawrence, we have gotten tremendous support and we really appreciate it," Harrison replied.
"Do you believe you have the resources and the campaign team and the ground troops you need in South Carolina to actually pull this off?" O'Donnell asked later in the interview.
Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.
“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.
"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.
Feinstein is in line to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee if Democrats regain the Senate, despite never attending law school or having ever tried a case.
